What do beekeepers do in winter? -Apart from going on a well deserved holiday someplace where the sun is shining, we prepare for the season to come. Here we are dipping boxes in paraffin wax and then painting them to preserve the timber and make them last longer. #urbanbeekeeping #beehives #winterbeekeeping #springiscoming

Check it out! This is one of more than half a dozen frames of Queen Katharina II's Colony filled with delicious sugary sweet'n'sticky goodness! Awwwww yiss!! We checked the water percentage with the refractometer I just recently bought, it's 18%. Do you know what this means? Cuz imma tell ya what this means! IT'S HARVESTING TIME BABY! That's the signal for me to prepare all the things I need and try to get that scrumptious golden bee regurgitation out of the hive and into some jars! Did I spoil your appetite? Well oops, sorry about that, but that just means there's more honey for me 😉 Just please ignore my goofy grin in this pic 🙃 #sweet #sticky #deliciousandnutritious #hmm #fruitsofourlabor #QueenKatharinaII #longlivethequeen #longandprosperous #ilovemybees #regurgitation #lol #loveit #themoreyouknow #imactuallystillsnickering #youalsodontwanttoknowwheretheskinaroundasausagecomesfrom #justsaying - #bee #bees #beekeeping #beekeeper #urbanbeekeeping #🐝 #savethebees #beestagram #beesofinstagram #insectstagram #beelove #honey #natureboy #love

Anyone looking to learn more about beekeeping, or just bees in general, check out Urban Beekeeping Tours offered by MacEwan University. They do an amazing job! My kiddos and I went to check it out today. It was so interesting and very hands on (not with the active hives 😜), and then we were able to purchase some honey from their hives after. Such a great project! I think it’s so important for all of us to be aware of bee populations and what each of us can do to help. “If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have 4 years to live.” -Albert Einstein Today’s project: making bee hotels! . . #bees #beesknees #beekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #MacEwan #urbanbeetour #summertime #summereducation #honey #localhoney #sointeresting #iwantbeesnow

Three @maisonsimons store rooftops are now a home for some happy hives! 🐝✨🏙Take an inside peek at their arrival on the roof of their store in Old Quebec. It’s so incredible to see such an enthusiastic welcome for our favourite pollinators in the other two locations in Montreal and Toronto! 💕🐝 . . . . . #beekeepingwithalveole @maisonsimons #pollinator #urbanbeekeeping #apiculteur #abeilles #beekeepers #alveoleteam #sustainability #honeybees #urbanfarming #greencities #montreal #toronto #mtl #quebec

Honeybee hives have long provided humans with honey and beeswax. Such commercial uses have spawned a large beekeeping industry, though many species still occur in the wild.

This is a prime example of the magic of pollination! Bees have thousands of tiny little hairs all over their body that collect pollen as they brush up against the stamen. (Stamen is the pollen producing part of the flower)

Thanking bees & other pollinators for my baby cucumbers & tomato plants. Pollinators provide 1/3 of every bite we eat: Protecting them is crucial. Looking forward to learning more about them when @pollinatorsfilm comes out! #pollinators #honeybees #bees #dcbees #urbanbeekeeping #lifecycles #dcbeekeepers #urbanagriculture #beesofinstagram #savethebees #nobeesnofood #madeindc #local #honey #raw #smallbusiness #womanowned #dc #thisismadeindc #dccreates #womenbeekeepers #abeilles #пчелы #abejas #bienen

Some amazing BEE FACTS to keep you buzzing on a Friday afternoon.... 🐝 Honey bees must gather nectar from TWO MILLION flowers to make just 1lb of honey. One bee would have to fly about 90,000 miles (three times around the globe) in order to make that 1lb. And a bee’s brain is about the size of a sesame seed, yet it has the remarkable capacity to make complex calculations about distances travelled and foraging efficiency as well as mapping the local geography to teach others in the colony BY DANCING. Come meet and draw our amazing bees, learn more facts and taste some local honey with @pearlyqueenhoney next Sunday 29th @acehotellondon 🐝☀️ A few tickets left for both sessions now, but be quick!

Bumble bee sex! Hopefully this gets by the insta community standards. Not sure how long bee mating takes but this couple were at it for at least 15 minutes. ******************************* #beesex #bumblebeeporn #natureisreal   #vancouverhoney   #bchoney   #honey   #urbanhoney #urbanbee #madeineastvan #vancouver    #urbanbeekeeping #vancouverbeekeeping   #apismelifera   #eastvan   #shoplocal #shoplocalyvr #localhoney #realvancouverhoney #beekeeping #honeybee #bee #bee   #lovethebees #savethebees

The swarms keep coming and spring is 5 weeks away! 🐝 This swarm was hanging in a dead finger lime tree for the past 5 days so no doubt was starting to run very low on stores. Prior to swarming, the colony gorges on honey from the parent hive so that they are well stoked to start building comb when they get to their new home. This swarm probably would not have made it if we had not stepped in as we are still having very cold nights and they really should have found a new home after 5 days. 🐝 We usually shake the swarm on the spot and find the queen, cage her and collect the hive after dark. This job was about an hour away so this time we decided to carefully cut the branch, put the swarm, branch and all into a box and do the queen-finding when we got back to our quarantine apiary. 🐝 The queen is pretty small and took a bit of spotting. Swarm queens are usually slimmed down prior to swarming so that they are too heavy to fly. 🐝 We will feed this colony up on sugar syrup so that they can regain their energy and start the task of building comb for the queen to start laying into. 🐝 Thanks Haley for calling us to save this colony. . . . . #beekeeping #honey #godsavethequeen #bees #apismellifera #hinterlandbees #malenyhoney #maleny #sunshinecoast #beesofinstagram #honeybee #beehive #savethebees #urbanbeekeeping #honeybees #beekeeper #apiary #apiculture #apicultura #honey #apis #urbanbeekeeper #hive #urbanbeehive #backyardbeekeeper #backyardbeekeeping #pollinator #naturalbeekeeping #beehive #aussiebeekeeper #beefarm #backyardbeekeeping

[훈연] 꿀벌이 건강한지, 먹이는 충분한지, 여왕벌이 알을 잘 낳고 있는지 체크하는 것을 ‘내검’이라고 하는데요, 그럴 때 벌들을 잠시동안 얌전하게 만들기 위해서 연기를 쏘여 줍니다. 훈연을 하면 벌들은 무언가 문제가 생긴 것이라 여기고 공격성을 보일 여유도 없이 만일의 사태에 대비해 꿀을 먹기 시작합니다. 양봉가는 이 시간을 틈타서 재빨리 벌들을 체크합니다. #훈연 #smoker #아뻬서울 #seoulhoney #seoulbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #도시양봉 #서울꿀 #apeseoul

Cycle 5: Entering robber season, time to: - put entrance reducer in bottom entrance with wide notch open - close any large entrances at the tops of hives; small notches are fine but anything else should be sealed - screen inner cover center hole w/ window screen and duct tape #urbanbeekeeping #suburbanbeekeeping #bestbees

[at TEDxBoston 2012 노아 윌슨-리치: 건강한 꿀벌이 도시에 필요한 이유 중] 주황색 선 위쪽을 보세요 벌집을 찾아보세요. 저쪽에 있습니다 지붕에 있어요, 저쪽 구석에요 (사진에 벌통이 보이지 않음) 거기 둔 지 2년쯤 되었죠. 요즘 도시 양봉은 이런 식으로 보이지 않는 곳에서 이뤄집니다 꼭 그래야 해서가 아니라 사람들이 불편해하기 때문이에요 그러니 여러분들이 한번 다시 생각해 보길 바랍니다 꿀벌들이 도시에 있으면 어떠한 굉장한 이점이 있는지를요 #urbanbeekeeping #도시양봉 #citybeekeeping #Seoulbeekeeping #서울양봉

Before we sat down to supper, Ann got up close and personal with the honeybees 🐝. The bees are getting a little creative in their comb building though. Not sure what is going on. So much to learn! 🤓 The video shows what is called festooning bees. They hang together between the frames of comb. Scientifically, the reason for this behaviour is unknown. Some beekeepers believe it’s like scaffolding from which the bees build a new comb. Others believe the bees are measuring the distance between the frames 🤔☺️🧐. The wonders of nature! #beekeeping #savethebees #backyardbeekeeping #urbanbeekeeping #honeycomb #mothernatureisawesome #festooningbees

QUEEN BEE RETINUE PHEROMONE FACT Most beekeepers have seen the queen surrounded by her retinue of worker bees, most likely be nursing bees. This happens when the queen's is taking a rest from laying eggs... During the the different retinue she will have in her life it is never the same bees that will look after her during the retinue. But during this important moment the queen retinue pheromones are being shared, it is said that a fully mated queen can make o e Qeq every 24 hours, and that she moves the pheromones to multiple part of her body by her self grooming or even worker bees bees grooming her. #urbanbeekeeping #beehive #beekeeper #girlboss #savethebees #adelaide #australia #honeybee #honey #ilovescience #queenpheromones #education #learning #retinue

This is the view of our garden at the shop from our apiary which is perched on top of a shipping container. All this is very new for me, bees and gardens. As a kid I remember being sent outside to pick weeds in our backyard garden, each weed fetched 5 cents and 10 cents if you got a big one with all the roots! My only run in with bees was a few stings growing up. Two of them were in my mouth, one because I licked a lollipop apparently at the same time as a bee and the other happened as I took a bite of a sandwich right as a bee landed on the sweet jelly. Every day something new happens at the Peg and Awl gardens and I learn just a little more, but most of all I have been learning patience as I work to slowly transform this concrete pad into a sanctuary @pegandawl #urbanbeekeeping #urbanfarming #pegandawlgardens #astorytotell #kensington #fishtown #portrichmond #phillymade

This is the only hive we have in an urban setting this year and it is the best hive, hands down! . Urban beekeeping is popular. Many people are taking the time to educate themselves, suiting up and getting their hands sticky! And why not? Bees are fascinating on all levels and in an urban setting they are more sheltered, have an abundance of diverse forage, and provide endless hours of Zen time for the backyard beekeeper just watching the comings and goings of the hive. . #urbanbeekeeping #backyardbees #bees

Bee keeping update: my queen perished this spring, I tried to re-queen (didn’t work), got a swarm about a month ago, and they are doing incredible!!! Lots of brood comb, honey reserves getting built up, and my kids are loving it. #beekeeping #permaculture #honey #urbanbeekeeping
