I have been beekeeping since the 70's and through that time have had many great learning experiences. Beekeeping is something I truly enjoy so when I decided to make a web site my goal was share some of my knowledge. I hope you find the pages on this site useful. Beekeeping has become a popular hobby in my area as with all over the county.
In the Northeast the fall nectar flow came early and ended early. The temperatures have been mild so the bees are flying but not being productive. This activity makes them consume more honey. Throughout the winter keep a very close eye on the weight of your hives. Active bees consume much more honey than clustered bees so a lot of hives will need food.
