Beekeeping Bees Hive Maintainance

Robbers and Invaders

Eggplant, cardoon, basil and tomatoes thrive near the hives.

My nine year old son decided to title this post.  You see, I had a heck of a time with the bees yesterday!  It had been a while since I had entered my hives as I was just letting the bees do “their thing”.   During the summer they forage and work hard, but come fall, it’s time to do an inspection and see that their summer has paid off and also to help them where they need it to survive the Winter. It was also time to check for bee pests that propagated during the warm season.
