Most Overwintered Colonies Die In March - Will Yours?


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

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. 

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.
