What was done this season.

  • First Graft

    May 5 2020 Location Muddy Meadows Grindrod BC

    Notes for the Bee yard - We transferred 15 one day old larvae into 15 cups on a stick and stick of grafted cups onto an empty frame. The frame was then put in the top box above the queen excluder and clocke board so that the bees in this box thought they were queenless and therefore would draw queens from these larvae filled cups.

  • Second Graft

    May 13 2020 Location Muddy Meadows Grindrod BC

    Notes for the Bee yard - We grafted a second set of 1 day old larvae into 15 cups and put the stick of grafted cups onto the frame containing our first stick of grafted cells, moving the first stick down to mid frame and the new stick at the top of the frame. Keeping the newest grafts at the top of the frame will keep it warmest as the heat rises to the top of the hive

    We will also repaired Knuc boxes and their lids, replacing the rotatating entrance closures with 3D printed entrance controller. Contact us if you would like the printable file.

  • Create mating nucs

    Friday May 15 2020 Location Muddy Meadows Grindrod BC

    Notes for the Bee yard - 7 of the of the 15 cups that were grafted 10 days ago developped into queen baring cells. We created 3 mating nucs from the 10 day old cells and put an extra cell into one of the 3 frame full depth nuc that were made 5 days ago from the first round of grafts. We created a 2 framed full depth nuc which already had several cells on the frame.

    Creating 3 and 4 Nucs.

    v 0.01 2020/04/22

    Creating 3 and 4 frame nucs are esential for expanding your operation or in a stock beekeeping opperation

    • Bring empty boxs to the hive you are working.
    • Seperate your hive into two or more stacks. This helps to controle the location of the queen. She must be found so she dose not get tranfred to a box. She will not survive a young queen and we don’t want to reduce the donor hive too much by making then raise a replacement. So find that queen.
    • Look at each frame.
    • Select a frame of bees with lots of capped brood. You will need 2 on the first round of queens. 3 for later rounds.
    • Select a frame of comb and bees for the third frame on the first round brood and bees on all other rounds.
    • You will need a frame of Resources for the 3rd or 4th frame.
    • The last will be a feeder on the first round feed till they need laying space. Feeders don't go to a client. They ensure that the nuc builds well in the nectar iffy early spring.
    • 3 frame 2 brood , then honey, then feeder, then comb
