December 2014

I've been working for the past two months on getting ready for artificial insemination of Queen bees.  With all the Africanized genetics that are prevalent in our area, having Queens that are known and proven is very important to me.  It helps us all to work with bees that aren't ticked off every time you go out to check on them.

Ever since the first swarm, my wife has told me I was silly if I didn't raise my own Queens.  Several years later, I finally feel like I know enough and it's the right time to do this.  As soon as the weather cooperates, I'll be testing out the process....and as soon as I know we have some successful Queens, we'll have them available for sale.  For the 2015 season, they'll be local pick up only.  These will be Italian Hybrid Queens, price listed in the webstore.  

**Update March 2016**
Queens are available this year.  Please see our webstore on the bee page for pricing and policies.   



Honey Extractor Rental

Posted on September 4, 2014 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Are you ready to harvest your honey?  I have options to help you out!


1. Rent one of our extractors: 

*Schedule a day, and you can take the extractor home.  This allows you a more flexible time frame, if you need it.

*24 hour time blocks available.

*Includes extractor and all tools needed.

*You pick up and drop off.  You are also responsible for clean-up of all the equipment.

*$35 per session, plus a deposit check for the retail value of the items rented, that I will hold until you drop off all the equipment in good shape.  The deposit will cover any damage done to the equipment or cleaning that was not completed.  I have a Rental Agreement that we will both sign.    


3. Full Service Option!

*Schedule a time to drop off your boxes or frames and containers.  I will extract and strain the honey for you.

*If your time is valuable and you don't want to extract your own honey, this is the option for you!

*No clean up involved....just drop off your full frames and pick up your own containers of raw honey.  (All your equipment will be inspected prior to acceptance and MUST be disease and contamination free)

*You supply containers with lids (whatever you would like me to fill with your honey).  You can also purchase buckets or bottles from me.  Your choice.  

*$2.50 per frame.

Observation Hive...in my living room!

Posted on March 21, 2014 at 7:40 PM Comments comments (0)

 

It's always been a dream of mine to have an observation hive in my house. It just took a few years to convince my wife that it was a good idea.

 

I built this hive in my back yard, split a package off of one of my stronger hives, and installed it about a week ago in my living room.

 

In a week's time, I've already learned some good lessons about ventilation. I thought I had provided plenty of ventilation holes, but I didn't anticipate how warm the bees would get inside my 65 degree house. The outside of the hive gets very warm to the touch mid-afternoon when the bees are most active. I've had to install some small ventilation fans and drill a few vent holes in the escape tube. It seems to be working well.

 

I caught a glimpse of comb today. I'll post more pictures as the hive grows. You can also look on my Facebook page.

 

If you're interested in a project like this in your home or business, I'd love to talk to you about it!
