SWARM SWARM SWARM Let's Try And Catch Them!



 

Hello from David and Sheri Burns at Long Lane Honey Bee Farms.


They swarmed before I had a chance to inspect them. If you need help learning how to catch a swarm this video is perfect! Let's face it, if your colonies are strong, there is a good chance they will swarm. Watch this video and be prepared to catch them!!


WATCH THE FULL VIDEO BELOW:



DID YOU GET THE QUEEN IN THE SWARM?
Once you catch the swarm most beekeepers fail to get the queen in the box. That is so frustrating. Watch the next video and we will inspect the swarm, moments after we caught it to see if the queen is in the box:

Most Overwintered Colonies Die In March - Will Yours?

 


Hello from David and Sheri Burns at Long Lane Honey Bee Farms, www.honeybeesonline.com

Thank you for your continued support.

Most overwintered colonies perish in the month of March.

It Is Crucial For You To Do The Right Things In March

Spring is only 18 days away! In your hive, old winter bees are dying at a very fast rate as the queen tries to start laying more to keep the hive going. I've just made a new video giving you 6 tips to help your colony not perish this month and to beef them up for a great year. Check out my March Beekeeping Tips Video Below.

Watch my newest video below to help you do the right things in March.


Don't Waste Your Time Chasing After Ineffective Bee Feeders

Spring is only 18 days away but with spring comes lots of spring showers. These rainy days can keep our bees from flying out for food. A new package or nuc has very little resources available on the cold and rainy days of spring when they cannot fly. A lack of food will set your hive back by weeks. Avoid this set back and keep your bees expanding by feeding them from the top with our Top Feeder. These have been very popular over the last few year. Screen keeps your bees down so you can change jars easily. 

TAKING A BEE CLASS CAN GIVE YOU A GREAT EDGE
Beekeeping is much harder now than it used to be. This is because we have more pests and diseases facing bees. Why go into beekeeping lacking the knowledge you need to have an enjoyable and successful year. Take one of our beekeeping classes. Do not miss out on the opportunity take an online beekeeping course with EAS Certified Master Beekeeper, David Burns. His online courses are very popular and sought out by beekeepers around the world.

Crazy Time For Bees! February Beekeeping Tips


Hello from David and Sheri Burns at Long Lane Honey Bee Farms, www.honeybeesonline.com

Thank you for your continued support.

Transitioning your bees out of winter and into spring can be tricky, tricky, tricky.

DO IT WRONG OR AT THE WRONG TIME - BAD!

Much of the US is transitioning now from winter to spring and beekeepers are scratching their heads trying to figure out if they should feed their overwintered bees, when should they make splits, when can they start inspecting their hives and for beekeepers further north, when can we start unwrapping our hives.

I've just made a new video answering these questions. Check out my February Beekeeping Tips Video Below.

Watch my newest video below to help transition your bees into spring.


Don't Waste Your Time Chasing After Ineffective Bee Feeders

Spring is only a month away but with spring comes lots of spring showers. These rainy days can keep our bees from flying out for food. A new package or nuc has very little resources available on the cold and rainy days of spring when they cannot fly. A lack of food will set your hive back by weeks. Avoid this set back and keep your bees expanding by feeding them from the top with our Top Feeder. These have been very popular over the last few year. Screen keeps your bees down so you can change jars easily. 

IS TAKING A BEE CLASS A WASTE OF TIME?
No, not at all. Online learning is HOT in 2022. It is FOMO! (Fear Of Missing Out). Why invest so much time and money getting started in beekeeper without knowing all you can. Do not miss out on the opportunity take an online beekeeping course with EAS Certified Master Beekeeper, David Burns. His online courses are very popular and sought out by beekeepers around the world.
