I have two hives. They are located near an irrigation canal, which has provided water for the hives over summer. Yesterday, I went by the bees and saw that the canal was nearly dry.  The shady lakes…Continue

Winter water

I have two hives. They are located near an irrigation canal, which has provided water for the hives over summer. Yesterday, I went by the bees and saw that the canal was nearly dry.  The shady lakes ponds are about 1/4 mile away.  Do I need to put some water near the hives until the canal reopens?See More

"I am curious about your experience with the Layens hive.  I am contemplating going to that style next year.  It seems like the best of all worlds."

I installed two packages in April. One had a queen die, and she was replaced her. That hive is doing great.The other hive with the original queen is doing okay, but does not seem to have nearly the same number of bees, and nowhere near the same amount of energy.So here are my questions. 1. It is really hot. I don't see many nectar plants. Should I go back to feeding the bees?2. Should I be thinking of re-queening the slow hive while there is still time left before winter?3. On the active hive,…See More

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mrsstellaabudheir@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Stella.
