Jutland Visit

[…]behaviour by the freeze brood method. He says he will raise 30 sister queens but after selection only retains about 5. He discounts any with chalkbrood. Or any with signs of nosema He starts grafting on 20 May and grafts every day until 20 July aiming to produce about 85 grafts daily, after the starter colonies he moves them to […]

Laesoe 2004

[…]a short but packed programme of talks, Danish researcher Klaus Langschwager gave some observations on the mating behaviour of the Danish dark bee, which is better adapted to the heather than other races and gives the best crops. Drones are produced early in large numbers, are full of semen and are kept in the hives very late. Thus the race […]

John Harding Queen Rearing

[…]my queen cell, and for protection I cut up 1inch length of hose pipe and make a small slit on one end. Place this gently over the queen cell slit first and this will be more than adequate to protect your investment. On that evening I feed with a jar of syrup, replacing when necessary. Feeding does stimulate the virgin […]

[…]and the recruitment of foragers by “dance language”. The accurate dissemination of information concerning direction and distance of forage areas leads to efficient exploitation of food sources. Whereas representatives of most types of bee were indigenous to all the continents, bees belonging to the genus Apis were originally to be found only in the Old World, namely Asia, Africa and […]

A Native Dark Bee Project

[…]However temperature/humidity may have to be more carefully controlled under different transportation conditions. On arrival at the home apiary brood sections were taken from their boxes and pinned between the brood frames of queenless starter nucs. The next day (20th July) a Chinese grafting tool and scalpel were used to graft the smallest larvae into frames holding plastic cups each […]

Colony Assessment Criteria

[…]This is often seen as not being important, but it gives you a very good idea if your selection is on track or not. It is more difficult to breed from colonies where the workers are different colours, as the queens raised will also be different colours and will probably show differing characteristics. Roger […]

Roger Patterson “The Patterson Unit”

[…]beekeepers to treat their apiaries as a whole, not as individual hives, keeping honey production colonies fully productive. A number of colonies, two to six works well, with four being ideal, are put into units, each having a support colony that provides anything needed, rather that interfering with productive colonies. This system works well for all beekeepers, whatever the number […]

Michael Maunsell “The Drone – More to its life than we may think?”

[…]of drones to our honey bee colonies. What governs the number of drones in a colony? Is it the drone comb, the season, the forage or stores, etc? How do the numbers or ratios work out? How do relationships inside the hive affect drone numbers? Workers can only produce drone offspring if hopelessly queen less, but do they produce drones […]
