Packages Of Bees Go On Sale In Less Than 36 Hours

We are David and Sheri Burns from Long Lane Honey Bee Farms and Honeybeesonline.com. Ben Franklin said, "Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbours and let each new year, find you a better man". Happy New Years! 

A new year is less than 36 hours away and January 1st represents the start of a new beekeeping year. Some of you will start beekeeping for the first time. Others are hoping your bees will overwinter well and you will see your bees in the spring. Beekeeping is more than just keeping bees. Beekeeping helps us develop  good life habits such as being outdoors, being active, learning and learning the art of sustainable success. Besides all that, beekeeping is a hoot!

NEW BEEKEEPING VIDEO
Our 15,700+ subscribers on YouTube have taken up quite the interest in a little struggling hive, seeing if it will make it through winter. I did the unthinkable the day after Christmas. Against everything I teach, I inspected it in the winter. Actually, I was careful not to chill any brood, but you should never inspect a hive in cold climates. I did anyway and you've got to watch this video to see what I found!




Inspecting A Beehive In Winter
Packages Of Bees 
Go Live January 1st at 12:00 a.m. 

Our packages of bees sell out quickly so we want to encourage you to spend the next day considering your online purchases, how many packages you need, hive kits and other equipment. To make this step easier, we've created a check off list on our mail page at www.honeybeesonline.com  Review this check off list to ensure you have all your bases covered. It's located just below our package bee image on our main page. Just a word of caution. So many people have their finger on the mouse button as soon as they go live. Within just a few days we sell over half of the available bees, then they quickly sell out, so do not delay. We've seen so many people disappointed when they find out we are sold out. So this is our way of informing you how it works.

Between now and spring many of you will be getting started in beekeeping for the first time. So be sure and enjoy some of our videos:

WINTER-BEE-KINDS
It is essential that we feed bees in the winter. Even if you think there is enough honey in the hive, who really knows if they will eat it all and then starve. Don't take that chance. Click here to watch my recent video on how quickly a hive can consume a winter-bee-kind.



If you are refilling your winter-bee-kinds or getting ready for spring and need pollen powder to add to your sugar feeders, consider our 1/2 containers. It doesn't take much to give your bees the protein they need.




Thank you for your businesses!
