I share how I am preparing my honey bee hive for fall. I have one hive that I don’t think has enough honey stores in its brood box. I remove the queen exclud…
Also, I heard if you cover you hive outside with some foam or whatnot to keep the bees warmer they will eat less honey. One of the guys on mountain men, the TV show does this for his bees. Do your neighbors hate you for keeping bees in the suburbs? lol
any further info on the top feeder would be appreciated
So… You Harvested almost 20 Gallons of honey this year. That’s really good for 3 hives. Do you sell your honey, or give it to you’re Friends and family?
What cool info thank-you 🙂
thanks for the info.
I loved this video LDSPrepper, I want to know how you keep water available for your bees? Do you have pets, have you run into problems with water conflicts?
Nice. Looks like a lot of coin in hives, but worth it I’m sure.
I don’t think so and certainly don’t hope so. I think is just makes sense for everyone to be self reliant. Have some extra food, water, money, etc. put away for emergencies.
Great information, thanks!
are most preppers mormons?
I guess its time to start getting my hive ready for the fall as well. Thanks so much for posting
Good video. I am lucky that I have enough honey flow throughout winter here to keep them going throughout winter.
I mixed up my sugar syrup and my Bee’s are drinking away! Thanks Again. You are the best on Youtube 😉
That is why I make these videos. I could just go about my business and take care of my bees and my family but that would only help me. It is quite time consuming to make videos and reply to comments but knowing that they help really motivates me to continue to make them. Thank you for commenting. And best of success with your bees.
Last year I harvested four times. It looks like I’ll do the same this year. I harvest when the honey supers are at least 70% capped. It is interesting harvesting at different times of the year because the honey is completely different because of what nectar the bees have available. Spring honey is the lightest and sweetest because of all the flowers. Fall honey is dark and has a strong but good flavor.
How often do you harvest honey? and how do you know when the honey is ready to be harvested?
Thank you, this is good information. I just check my hives and they almost have no honey stores. I’m am sure I would have missed this as I just started mine bee’s early part of this year…
Thank you Again, Rick in NC
I’m using raw sugar cane sugar.
I’m assuming you are using organic non-GMO beet sugar. Is that correct?
Canon PowerShot Elph 110HS
1:1 ratio of granulated sugar to water. I measure by volume. One gallon of sugar to one gallon of water. This closely resembles nectar in nature.
Can I ask what ratio you are using for your syrup ,cheers
what type camera are you using. good job learned a lot from you keep it up.
