Bee Improvement Strategies – Kevin Thorn -part two

BIM 49 – Spring 2017

[…]though their temperament is uniformly mild, even the one which is more actively guarded. These differences will be partly due to differences in hive types, colony size (some are small casts caught this year) and other environmental factors. What could I do differently next time? This was a first attempt at studying wing morphometry and I’ve learnt some other things […]

[…]egg to sexually mature adult. Whereas the queen takes about twenty-one days. This means there is a difference of seventeen days. So, it is suggested that feeding is started three weeks prior to the start of your first round of queen rearing. Also, a frame of drone comb or foundation can be inserted in the breeder colonies. Once it has […]

[…]lower temperature. Using a second incubator to store the queens that have emerged, allows for the difference in hatching times as all cells do not usually emerge on the same day. This then enables the making up of nucs with both bees and queens to be done all at one, go rather than have to spread it over two days. […]

[…]queen matings may be a bit random and not necessarily within our chosen strain, we can make a difference, over time, to the local population, by continuously producing queens that put out good drones. Work with others to try to dominate a mating area with your preferred drones. The Scillonian Honey Bee Project The Scillonian Honey Bee Project is the […]

[…]scientists! Perhaps we would expect the bees to know better, as they are likely to detect subtle differences that the beekeeper cannot hope to be aware of. If we rely on natural queen cells for our queen production (swarm cells, supersedure cells or emergency cells) then we are, in fact, leaving it to the bees to choose. One, often cited, […]

[…]beekeepers to make improvements, or they believe it just takes too much time and effort to make a difference. It is up to BIBBA members and NatBIP supporters to show that we can improve the quality of our bees in a sustainable manner. This approach should be fundamental to our beekeeping; interestingly it is an approach which none of the […]
