Windy Conditions Are Hard On Bees

We are David and Sheri Burns from Long Lane Honey Bee Farms and Last weekend we just finished up our package bee pickup extravaganza! Beekeepers from all over enjoyed a beautiful day and picked up hives, supplies and bees. Sheri and I have worked hard to have the best support staff onsite to help us and they did a great job! I noticed that many beekeepers arriving to pick up their bees were new beginners just starting out. They were very excited about their new beekeeping endeavor.

A new beekeeping endeavor cannot be fully enjoyed or embraced without a basic knowledge in beekeeping skills. If you have not taken a Basic Beekeeping Class with me, please consider taking my Basic Beginners Online Course. Even if you have already started beekeeping this spring, this course can be of great benefit. Plus, it comes with 1 month of free coaching from me. You can email me your concerns and questions. Don't suffer through not knowing what to do or whose answer to trust. Sign up now!

   "Dear David, Thank you so much for this Beginner's Beekeeping course. It truly hits its mark for me. I've been beekeeping by the seat of my pants and a lot of luck for 4 or 5 years now. This information really has filled in the gaps for me and I'm excited that I will be learning much more to come. Your design of the course is a perfect mix of audio and visual to easily get across the learning points. And I really appreciate your Midwest humor! We need it here in Vermont! " -Bob

Many beekeepers contact me daily telling me of the mistakes they made in making their splits. It's easy to mess things up. It's sad to see a colony make it through the winter, only to be weakened by a lack of knowledge in making splits correctly. My Spring Management ONLINE Course goes into specific details on the proper way to make splits and how to overcome some of the pitfalls. Sign up now and take this online course from the comfort of your home. This course comes with 1 month of free coaching from me. Sign up now!

Discover honey's sweetness as well as its nutritional benefits and take home a jar of your own locally-grown, organic honey. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP

Spring Wind And Rain Can Be Hard On Colonies 
Spring is that beautiful time of the year when plants and trees are in full bloom providing much needed pollen and nectar for honey bees. However, two enemies of the honey bee takes its toll in the spring...rain and wind. This week it has been so windy here in Illinois and it will continue for several more days. When it rains or is windy, bees cannot fly. Generally a 20 mph wind will keep bees from leaving their hive. Spring brings a change in weather patterns and more storms which causes more windy and rainy conditions. 
You may be happy that it is warm and everything is blooming, but if it is windy or rainy your bees are not able to fly and gather food. Feeding is vital during these unpredictable days of spring. 
A wind break may not be helpful. Even if the bees left their colony on a windy day, their trip would be counter productive due to the energy it would take to fly back home. Be patient and keep feeding your bees from the top with our Burns Bees Feeding System, especially on splits or new packages.

Can anyone help? I was moving some plants to a more sheltered spot in the garden outside yesterday afternoon and noticed a bumblebee sheltering I think under a leaf on some sea holly. Some 5 hours later when the wind was bad I went out to check on said plants and notice the bee was still there not moving. It I put some sugared water on my finger and it climbed on there. Not sure if I did the right thing but I put it on a small lavender plant and brought it inside as I was worried it might did if it hadn't moved for many hours. I put the plant under an upturned mesh bin so it Gould breath with the lavender plant inside. This morning its flying and moving about inside the enclosure type thing I made. I want to realease it but outside its hammering down with rain and 50mph winds. Any advice please?

For Hepatitis C: “I am 10 weeks into the 12 week treatment with interferon, ribavarin, and Sovaldi. This is my 2nd time around on treatment. My first was with interferon, ribavirin and Victrelis. I relapsed the first time and was very very ill during the entire 7 months. This treatment with Sovaldi is a cake walk. The side effects are so minimal compared to last time. I am ill, weak, have insomnia, bone pain and fever but I can do this for 12 weeks if it means a cure. I am so thankful for Sovaldi. I was very hesitant to start treatment again but I am so glad I did. My insurance covered some and Sovaldi covered the difference up to $5 per month. Thank you.”
