It’s nice to see some bees buzzing again

After losing the hives in the backyard over winter, it’s been a disappointment not seeing any bees around as things were starting to bloom. On Saturday, I picked up three packages and installed them yesterday morning. It was so nice to get back home just a few hours later and see bees on the dandelions and other flowering “weeds”

I was in the backyard transplanting some tomato seedlings into bigger pots and some bees were landing in the trays collecting water to take back to the hives. I was glad to see that they were already getting oriented to their new digs. Today is cloudy in the 40’s with a high of 50 expected, but I’ll post a few pictures on the next sunny day.

And don’t forget, if you want to build your own bee hives just pick up a copy of my new book “How to Build Your Own Beekeeping Equipment” You can find a link on the homepage.


About Beekeeping in the Berkshires

Here at Berkshire Farms Apiary we've been keeping bees and making honey since 2005, with hives in most of the surrounding towns. We also make pure beeswax candles, lip balm, and hand salve, as well as give presentations. As secretary of the Northern Berkshire Beekeepers Association, I am very active in the local beekeeping community.
