Bees are so important. I really hope more people find the time to have their own hives

Are you using small or medium boxes? Your frames looked pretty short from the pictures.

Everything's mediums. 10 frame boxes.

Fuck deeps dude, seems like a good way to have to pay for back surgery.

This is a nice hive you got there.  Post a picture with your name on a piece of paper to prove it's yours .

nou.

I stole the image from /u/bluefirecorp off reddit /s

My grandfather keeps bees, they love him

My bees are friendly, I wouldn't say they love me though. I kill about 300 every few weeks for varroa testing.
So I am confused is it your hives or not?  Or theyre just from reddit.
I love bee hives and want to reward your post with merit just prove this is your hard work

The sarcasm flag wasn't a hint. They're my bees, and I don't have to "prove" they're my bees.

/u/bluefirecorp is me. I stole and re-posted my own content across different platforms.

how to know if bees we're female?

There's like 3 different types of bees, two types are females, one type is male.

Worker bees, which are in the OP, are females.

Drones are male.

Queens are females.

Imho, the easiest way to tell the drone from the queen is the eyes. Drones are much larger than worker bees.

Nice BeeFarm mate that’s a good business as well

My best friend started having hive wayback 2015 and now he’s the biggest supplier of Honey in he’s region so basically this isn’t profitable and also helpful to the environment

Someone else contribute stuff. I might go on strike for new bee pics until I get to stare at other ladies. It feels wrong only posting my girls in a "sharing" thread.

When people say they "do it for the honeys" I usually don't expect them to mean this. Cool pics.

Heres a documentary on youtube about funny honey. In Nepal, they climb cliff sides to harvest honey from giant himalayan bees. There are a lot of wild poisonous plants in the area, primarily rhododendrons, that the bees collect nectar and pollen from that makes the honey they produce toxic. People sure are drawn to poison huh?

I'm just as surprised as you, but apparently not. I see the occasional bee try to get in through the ventilation up top, but I've only seen the tussle between guard bees and robbers once. They take out plenty of wasps though. I have a tremendous amount of guard bees that cover the entire landing board (and come peacefully check me out whenever I sit down next to the hive).  I watch them smell and crawl over any incoming bees before they are allowed in.

It probably doesn't hurt that I haven't hit a dearth yet.

But it needs lot of experience as well,pure honey is one of the expensive and most wanted medicine to cure many disease and also gor skin care like cosmetic products so have good potential in long term as well.

That's the royal jelly, not just the simple honey. Honey is healthy and great tasting as well though.

I've added a photography section to Fit to Talk -  The photography and content production board

Hopefully we can use this to help members earn from using budget photo kit whilst they practice their English

too much hassle and they only produce honey (sugar).

I would rather just grow my tomatoes and fruit trees with no effort and get fruit that I like a lot more than honey.

I didnt get into beekeeping for the honey. I have a sizable garden and a handful of fruit trees, and having reliable pollination greatly increases crop yield. Bees are more work than a lot of people expect though. I'd say I spend maybe an hour per week checking bees (takes me about 2 hours every other week) for the most part though, and that seems to be pretty standard unless you find something wrong, then you need to spend more time.
