Contentious & Argumentative Beekeeping

Happy Last Days Of Summer! We are David and Sheri Burns from Long Lane Honey Bee 

Farms and honeybeesonline.com. It’s finally almost here. Fall will arrive on September 22nd, 2018. Four days away. Are your bees ready?  Our lane is lined on both sides with an abundance of goldenrod. And yes my hives smell weird! Nectar produced by fall asters make hives take on a funky smell. Don’t panic and jump to the conclusion that you have the dreaded, smelly American foulbrood disease. Probably just a fall crop of goldenrod.

Remember, all the bees you are seeing now as adults will only live until Thanksgiving. They are mostly summer bees which die in 45 days. Bees of winter physiology live 4-6 months.

Fall Tips
David has an entire article dedicated to explain bees in the fall. One thing David writes about is mites. Mites are shifting from drones to workers and increasing in number, spreading viruses in your colony in the fall. If you think you do not have varroa mites, you are wrong. All colonies have mites. In our winter classes we actually teach you how to test for mites and calculate your hive’s percentage of infestation. Do not think you do not have mites simply because you do not see any. You have them! Get rid of them. Mites prefer drones, but now that drones are being killed, mites are now parasitizing your worker brood–soon to be your winter bees. And when mites have viruses, they spread them to worker bees which shortens the life of that winter bee from 6-9 months to 3-4.5 months. That means a bee born in October will live until May or June without viruses spread by mites. But, if a winter bee has a virus it will only live to January or February. Sound familiar? If you do nothing to get rid of mites then your hive will probably not make it to see March or April…READ MORE
