I'm planning on building 3 hives over the next month or two. Warre, Perone, Topbar. If anyone has any experience with these hives, please post here.Continue

This product kills bees
Help! I live in moderate Coastal California with a very mild winter! My bees seemed to have been overwintering well. Until a couple of weeks ago when the activity at the entrance decreased tremendously. I have not seen the bees bring in any pollen for the last couple of days. This is my first year of beekeeping, so I am green as green can be(e)! Anyway, my question is do bees stop bringing in pollen (they were bringing in pollen a couple of weeks ago) as a normal process? Or is this a bad sign?
I keep two deep hive bodies on mine just for brood chambers, then add my supers on top of those. Gives the queen lots more space to lay eggs. I also reverse them each spring.
Most bee keepers I know have been keeping bees for 30 + years and they tell me they are still in the learning process
In my humble opinion you need to add another Hive body ASAP, too many bees, not enough space. Too much heat buildup in the hive, they need more room. If you have a reducer take it off. Your bees do look healthy, they have just run out of room
Just my opinion,
This is just my opinion
We got a little freaked out last night when I went out to check on chickens and found this.
We are hoping this is just bearding.
