I want to take a minute to acknowledge all the people who loved my Winter Bee story! I was overwhelmed with responses from people all over the world and across all my social media platforms who found my tribute to a little winter honeybee so touching and inspiring. ⁣
⁣
It was truly her story to tell and I tried my best to capture what felt right. Even the smallest things can have a big impact and this is a lesson the humble bees have to teach us all. And, Guess what? Because of the responses my writing and the accompanying image received, that little Winter Bee is now forever immortalized in the latest issue of “Natural Bee Husbandry.” I teared up a bit at the thought that such a tiny little insect, just going about her day, doing what she was designed to do, would touch so many people. I wonder what she’d think about all this? ❤️ Its a fitting tribute to such a marvelous creature, for sure!⁣
⁣
A big thanks to @aplotofgold and Northern Bee Books, as well as the editor and folks at the “Natural Bee Husbandry” magazine for publishing my “Winter Bee” piece! The magazine is absolutely stunning and I have immensely enjoyed reading it. ⁣

Pollen 
Are you sniffling, sneezing, watery eyes, and runny nose? High pollen alerts going on in your area? While allergy sufferers hate this time of year as a beekeeper I LOVE it!!! Loads of pollen coming in. The girls were out taking full advantage of warmer temps over the weekend. Looks like a little dandelion pollen and elm pollen. Even saw some small red, possibly from wild cherry or plum that started flowering a little early. Mot seeing much of the grey/brown to indicate red maples strong pollen flow in this yard. Pollen loads are picking up for sure though. 
Now if the weather will just stay nice so they can keep at it. Up and down temps. The first signs of spring breaking through here in Oklahoma. 
Hive populations are increasing, brood rearing coming in full force. Beekeeping rewards come 4-6 months down the road. How we built our hives up for winter will reflect how well they are building up for early spring. What we start doing now to keep them building, monitoring for swarms and keeping them happy will determine the season, weather permitting of course, which can change rapidly for us.

Brood comb progress picture! You can see the progression of the bees’ development from right to left (the capped cells on the left have the oldest pupae, which will be hatching first). From right to left: 1-3 day-old eggs, 4-9 day-old larvae, 10-20 day-old capped pupae.

Some sad news regarding #StormCiara 😞
.
Unfortunately, one of our bee colonies could not withstand the wicked weather and was taken out by Storm Ciara the previous weekend. 😟😢
.
Thankfully it's not all doom and gloom! Swipe left for an example of one of our nuc colonies that was powerful enough to resist the treacherous conditions. The bricks were heavy enough to resist the power of #StormCiara and they live on to fight another day! 🐝
.
This particular nuc is going to be ready for sale in April/May, but we do have other winter nucs available to purchase now! ☺

Last week we visited @authentickangarooisland for the @thebushbeeman to tell the story of a beekeeper who lose 2/3 of his hives.

It was confronting how much damage the bushfire has done.

Vues opposées autour de la miellerie.
L’hiver pourrait n’avoir été qu’effleuré et la saison se profile déjà, le matériel va reprendre du service sans tarder...

Uncapping tubs cost around $150 through bee catalogs, I made my own with a food safe tote, a wood scrap, a queen excluder, a couple nuts and bolts, and one screw! I plan to add a honey gate to it too, but instead of doing that I just dumped the honey into the extractor. 🐝🐝🐝 #diybeekeeping #bees #diyextracting #diy #diybeesupplies #beekeeping #colony #beekeeper #beekeepinglife #beekeeperlife #farmlife #bee #beesofinstangram #colony #honeybee #honeybeekeeper #beekeepersofinstagram #instabeekeepers #instabeekeeping #pollen #flower #beeflower #honeybeeflower #insect #photography #nature #naturephotography #flying #insectphotography #apis #apismilifera

The boys made their first hives today. We gifted them the queen and brood. They are borrowing the nuc box and will get paid for almond pollination (at nuc prices). They are responsible for the expenses from here on forward.  They are beyond excited.

This is so much bigger in person.  This sneaky swarm turned into a exposed feral colony a few weeks ago and of course we don’t get the call until the comb falls into a busy parking lot. 20 feet up in a tough spot but one more saved!
