Cabbage trees are an amazing plant to have for local pollinators. Not only are they great for bees but they are also amazing at managing erosion on land. Be sure to plant these awesome plants in our garden or farm.

Bees brings so much more than honey to some of us, and one of us is new beekeeper Phoebe, from @__beegarden who lives in Beecroft... First time opening her brand new hive. And already have so much knowledge. If you want a hive you'll know a lot already, because what matters is the health of your hive. And how to look after them. #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #beekeeper #girlboss #savethebees #adelaide #australia #honeybee #honey #rawhoney #foodporn #bee #mentoringadelaide #queenbee #backyardbeekeeping #rooftop #abeille #miel #ruche #apiculture #beekeeping #pollen #flower #sydney

It’s going to be hot today! ☀️ At 5.30am I could already hear the bees 🐝 from my bedroom, their buzzy hum that I know means it’s going to be hot 🥵. This little bee was grateful for the water spray 🚿 I gave them this morning at 8am. Bees use water 💧 to cool their hives so the honey doesn’t start to run everywhere. So helping them out a bit on hot days so they don’t have to travel to collect it is something I can do. . . . #bees #camerasforasiabees #camerasforasia #honeybees #beelove #brisbanebees #beekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #ilovebees #beesdrinkwater #beesdrinkingwater

Yet another example of the steadfast resourcefulness of these beautiful creatures. The moment we set down our hive tools spattered with remnant honey from a lost hive, these ladies landed and slurped up the precious golden food source of their fallen sisters to bring back to their hives in an unending effort to survive winter. This ambrosia we call honey is created by through an enzymatic process of partial digestion in the honey bee’s crop(honey stomach). With a series of regurgitations between sisters, they create a frothy surface area to cure the nectar from its 80% water content, into honey which is about 17% water. This is the main food source and lifeline for our friends during the cold months, and by preparing themselves in stocking their hexagonal cells with honey and pollen, they’ll make it through til spring and live to forage and pollinate once more. • • • #honey #honeybees #forager #pollinator #beekeeping #savethebees #swarmandtender #nobeesnopizza #ilovebees #apiculture #hivetool #toolsofthetrade #apiary #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #thefutureisfemale

Good evening to all. Enjoy autumn and winter for a fresh frozen pollen cure. We put it in the freezer after harvest, to preserve all its virtues. A dry pollen loses more than 50% of its virtues. The fresh pollen of Rose hip apiary is very beneficial for menopause, prostate, desensitization to pollen allergens among others. Do not hesitate in 6 weeks treatment at the beginning of the winter and in spring it will bring you all the benefits you need. Sweet night to you🌷🌷🌷🐝🐝🥀🥀🥀 💐More info: https://www.apisintermissa.com/le-pollen-cette-petite-boulette/ Bonne soirée 🌷 a toutes et à tous. Profitez de l'automne et de l'hiver pour vous faire une cure de pollen frais congelé. Nous le mettons au congélateur après récolte,afin de préserver toutes ses vertus. Un pollen sécher perd plus de 50% de ses vertus. Le pollen frais de ciste du rucher de violette est très bénéfique pour la ménopause,la prostate, la désensibilisation au allergènes du pollen entre autres. N'hésitez pas en cure de 6 semaines a l'entrée de l'hiver et au printemps il sera vous apporter tout les bienfaits dont vous avez besoins. Douce nuit a vous🌷🌷🌷🐝🐝🐝🥀🥀🥀 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #apiculturenaturelle #apiculteurs #natural #mielbio #miel #honey #beekeeping #beekeepers #ijrah #apicultureurbaine #permaculture #apiculture #diy #honeybee #urbanbeekeeping #bees 🐝

Beekeeping can be hard on your back. Each one of those hives can weigh 200lbs (except the skinny one divide by 2). These hives don’t even have any supers on them which add height and about 60lbs per box when full. I found that after 3 supers I was reaching too high trying to lift down heavy boxes. So I ended up removing the legs from this stand and now it’s the perfect height. Hive stands need to be heavy duty. Four 10 frame hives with two deeps and two full supers could total 1300lbs!!! 😳 It’s the perfect workout...put on a suit and jacket in 90 degree weather and lift 100lbs boxes high and low and hold 10lbs frames out straight while you examine them for a couple hours. #crossfitaintgotnuthinonbeekeeping #crossfit #lifting #heavy #weight #weighttraining #liftingboxes #heavyboxes #workexercise . . . . #fuquay #fuquayvarina #nc #northcarolina #backyardbeekeeping #beekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #suburbanbeekeeping #fvbees #naturalbeekeeping #apismellifera #raleigh #raleighnc

Cade (my little brother) is extremely proud of how his little pack of sunflower seeds have turned out - they are taller than me! - if you looks closely, you might see the masses of bee's around them " The Sunflower family produces 'composite' flowers. They are actually made up of small clusters of flower heads packed together to look like a single flower " - The Bee Friendly Garden by Doug Purdie #Educate #Polinate #PlantMoreBeeFood #OurBeeGarden #TheBeeFriendlyGarden “Mum, there is a bee stuck to the windscreen wipers!....” as we are doing 100kms along the highway.. so after 10mins of watching her cling on we pulled over and Finn held her for the trip home. Unfortunately she had stung the horrible monster wipers that had caught her and she spent 5 hours under Finns care before crossing the rainbow 🌈 bridge #FinnTheBeeBoy #SaveABee #childbeekeeper #savethebees #educate #bees #savethebees #beecolony #savethebeessavetheworld #urbanbeekeeping #childbeekeeper #lovebees #apiary #lovebees #allthebees #beekeeperlife #urbanbeekeeping #beekeeper #honeybees #beeks #beekeepersofinstagram #backyardbeekeeping #apiary #beekeeperlife #saveourbeesaustralia #thebeesitters

🇺🇸 “I’ve always loved nature. My parents and I lived in the city but we used to go out of town every weekend. They would sit me down by a tree and I would leave them alone for the rest of the day. I would sit by the anthills, I was scratching, looking at it, asking questions…” - Diane Jos, parisian beekeeper. 🇫🇷”J’ai toujours aimé la nature. Avec mes parents on habitait en ville et on allait tous les weekends à la campagne. Moi on me posait à côté d’un arbre, au pied d’une fourmillière et ils avaient la paix toute la journée. Je gratouillais, je posais des questions. Et pourquoi, et si et ça….” - Diane Jos, apicultrice à Paris.

Guard bees on full alert today! I love watching the girls protect their hive!!! #girlpower From the time that honey bee workers emerge as adults, they progress through a series of hive jobs to help care for the colony. The bees have glands which enable the bees to perform various functions, and the bees’ jobs change as their glands develop. When the workers are about 21 days old, the venom in the sting is at its maximum potency, so they serve the hive as guards for a few days. Guard bees stand at the hive entrance on their back four legs with their front legs raised. The guard bees inspect every bee entering the hive. Bees entering the hive allow the guard bees to examine them with their front legs and antennae. The guard bees can determine if a bee belongs to its colony by the bee’s odor, as each hive has a distinct odor. Worker bees that belong to the colony are allowed to enter. Most any drone bee is allowed to enter as well. Also, almost any bee approaching the hive with a load of nectar or pollen is allowed to enter. The colony doesn’t mind accepting a free gift of food from a bee mistakenly entering the wrong hive. The guard bees will sting and remove foreign intruders, such as bumble bees, wasps, and yellow jackets. They will also sting and attempt to drive away intruding skunks, raccoons, and beekeepers. The guard bees can extend their sting and release alarm pheromone to attract other guard bees if needed. #urbanbeekeeping #urbanbees #honeybee #honeybees #savethebees #savethebee #keepexploring

My students have started addressing me as their “Queen” as a loving bee joke but the truth is, these women are all Queens! 👑 All of them stepping into a new role in their lives as caregivers to the Honeybees. Some of them are mothers to human children, but they are all mothers now to the bees, flowers and acting as guardians to Gaia. The magnitude and power behind women working together and actively taking steps to heal pain and midwife trauma of our environment and communities is limitless. 🐝 I must be doing something right to have been chosen to guide them in this journey. I am forever humbled and filled with gratitude to do this work. I love you Queens. ❤️ #queenbee #womeninagriculture #womenbeekeepers #urbanbeekeeping #apiculture

We put a strong nuc into this new Flow hive 2 yesterday. They will fill out the brood box pretty quickly and the owner was advised to place the flow frames on in a couple of weeks. The hives are well located behind a high hedge which forces them to fly high over neighbouring properties. Great to see my bees going to a good home. We love helping beekeepers with Flowhives.

Wanna help save the bees in a delicious, medical and accessible way? Buy raw honey from a bee keeper!. Honey is: antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, helps regulate blood pressure and cholesterol, helps alleviate allergies and is being studied to treat degenerative brain and heart disease. Purchasing honey from beekeepers helps us continue to help these girls do all their indispensable work in the world.
