Finding Honey And Getting The Bees Ready For Winter

You may recall last May when D.J. Haverkamp of Bedford Bee Honeybee Service showed Carlos, who cares for my bees, how to split a hive, making two beehives from one.  In doing so, the honeybee population has increased, ultimately resulting in an increase of honey production.  D.J. and Carlos inspected the hives the other day, removing two honey supers for extraction and began the process of readying the bees for winter.  It’s always amazing entering the incredible world of honeybees.
