10-mistakes new beekeepers make

Recommended Posts


Several of these I totally agree with. A couple I totally dis agree with.

(1. I do not wear a suit but I also do not put up with a hot hive. I wear a light colored long sleeve shirt and long jeans with mid high boots. A pair of pig skin gloves and a helmet with veil.

(2. I do not just automatically smoke the hive. I keep a lit smoker near by for just in case, but when I open a hive I mist the bees with a 1:1 syrup mix. that syrup seem to keep them occupied cleaning each other off and doesn't drive them into hiding or gobbling honey.
