The Bee man cometh...


The Bee man cometh..., première mise en ligne par hardworkinghippy.

A friend of our keeps his bees on our land and visits from time to time to make sure they're OK.

I kept bees in the UK, but I've got too much to do here to keep bees too and of course as he gives us the odd pot of honey from time to time ...

Hi,

I'm afraid that I don't understand how the bees are kept in boxes. Do they use them as hives?

I think perhaps I should a Google search.

Wonderful trade!

These are Langstroth hives, they don't look as pretty as the old-fashioned hives we all think of when we think of beehives, but the bees seem to like them and this design easy to manipulate, add to, empty and clean. Here's a link to find out more about the design.

As you say - great trade !!

Hi, It's the first time I've called in. Everyone around here (SW Dordogneshire) has started keeping bees. One of our neighbours has just painted his hives with bright yellow & Blue flowers. Is that to attract the bees? Debs
