    Beehive Removal

    do you know anyone who can remove bees with a beehive on a tree here in Cebu? if possible just transfer the bees and not using a pesticide?
  2. Greetings: I have been pretty sick for a while. Coughing my guts up, for the most part. Have been delayed in returning to the farm due to the crud that I have contracted. Chan was able to talk with our regular pharmacist, though, who is a godsend for us. Honestly, she should have been a doctor. She recommended the appropriate medication once again, to help me get rid of yet, another illness. I hope to be over this enough to travel to the farm this morning (past midnight here, currently). Anyway, a little while back, I went ahead and moved forward regarding building our own wood war
  3. A photo recently taken by a beekeeper who is a member of a group I am on as well. She gave me permission to use the image. So, I thought I would share it with you folks. Thank you, Hilary!
  4. Some really good Beekeeping channels to view on YouTube, in no particular order, are: Joe May - great general knowledge videos. David Burns Jeff Horchoff - great swarm capture videos. JPthebeeman Scott Hendriks - excellent construction videos. Barnyard Bees - great general knowledge videos. Walls Bee Man - great general knowledge videos. 628DirtRooster - great swarm capture videos. Trevor Gillbanks - great general knowledge videos. Jason Chrisman - great general knowledge videos. Honey Bee Honey Don The Fat Bee Man - great general kno
  5. With the new nuc split we have going on at the farm, I knew I would need additional parts, so I ordered them. Apparently, I forgot about the outer cover (called a telescoping cover), for the next hive. So, I enlisted the assistance of good ol' Tha, the guy who has worked on the aquaponics build, rainwater catchment, and a number of other projects at the farm, and is a motodop (habal-habal) driver. He took some measurements and constructed me one outer cover today, and converted a solid bottom board that came with my original hives, into a screened bottom board. So, tomorrow, o
  6. Well, we returned to the farm this morning (8/Sept), to do an inspection of the nuc. Just wanted to get an idea as to where we are at with it. I was surprised. I had actually been a bit concerned that I had not put enough bees in it, when transferring the frames from the mother hive. However, I had put it in place of the mother hive, during the middle of the day. So, many of the foraging bees were away from the hive, at the time of the split. Then, I turned the mother hive around 180°, so the bees would not return there. Anyway, I had seriously underestimated the number of foragers that had be
  7. This past weekend, the 3rd of September, we broke open the hives to have a look. The girls, as always, were calm and easy going. I have to say, I hope all my future colonies are as calm as these bees are. We rarely even need to smoke them, prior to opening their hives up for inspections. First, I would like to share with you a photo we took of open and capped brood. I cropped the image to show the image much larger. It is amazing to watch these little creatures carry out their daily duties, especially the nurse bees feeding and caring for their siblings, that are yet to mature:
  8. So, after waiting a while for my supplier to send me my first two hives of bees, we finally got them here, sorted, and opened them up. They arrived on July 22nd, late in the afternoon. Then, all hell broke loose. Of all the landlords in this world I could have, I ended up with one that is a bigger wuss than probably anyone I have ever met. I made a mistake, as many new beekeepers do, I'm sure. I opened my bees in the evening, after they had arrived. Had I thought, I should have left them until the following morning, after they had time to calm down - from a 5-7 hours ride from the C
  9. Here are my current costs: So far, I have just under $900 USD invested in my bees. This includes 2 hive stands, 2 colonies of bees, all wood ware, including 12 deep hive bodies, 4 inner covers, 2 outer covers, 2 screened and 2 solid bottom boards, 2 entrance reducers, 90 frames - all with a minimum of wax sheets, 35 with drawn comb, 2 frame feeders, 10 bottle (chicken) feeders, 4 boardman style feeders, 2 mini (mating) nucs from Simon The Beekeeper (UK), 20 frame separators (to space 9 frames equally apart in supers), 5 veils, 1 smoker with smoker fuel, 2 pairs of gloves, 3 hive tools, 1
  10. So, a bit over a year ago, I was going to buy some hives and start beekeeping. If nothing else, I wish I had at least purchased the hives and frames. The prices have increased substantially since then, due to this becoming a more widespread hobby. It didn't work out for us, due to not having enough space and us living on the second floor of an apartment building. After we moved - in June 2016, the new landlord was scared of bees, although we have quite a bit of room here to support several hives. But, now, the time has come for bees to start working at the farm. I am going, next wee
  11. Not sure what a liter / kilogram goes for nowadays. But, depending on your area, I would think it would make some decent spending money for someone willing to start this up. Here, I am about to purchase two 10 frame hives for $35 USD, each. 10 frame supers, for $10 USD, each. I imagine they would be nearly as cheap, if not cheaper, in the Philippines.
  12. Radical Bee Hive Rakes in $4.8 Million It’s a maker’s dream come true: come up with a great invention, set up a crowd-funding campaign, and surpass your goal in less than 10 minutes. For Australian father and son team Stuart and Cedar Anderson, founders of Honeyflow, a simple idea has changed their lives forever: Twelve days into their Indiegogo fundraising campaign, they raised more than $4.8 million and counting for Flow™, a frame system for a beehive that enables honey to be extracted just by turning on a tap. The idea in question has the potential to change beekeeping, and maybe could
  13. Anyone here considered it before? Anyone here doing it now? I am considering getting one hive to produce enough for me to use here at home. Not sure if I would want to do it commercially, or not? Ideas regarding bee keeping? Beekeeping for Dummies (ISBN - 0470430656).pdf
