The nectar flow is on and there is plenty of honey

in the "house".

I have beeswax for candles and cosmetics
as well as Honey Comb and propolis.

Wow what a winter for the bees!
Survival rates are 96% in my apiary system.

Perhaps this was due to new techniques which employ Sustainable and Regenerative methods started several years ago when it became very apparent there were looming issues with climate and our bees.

Currently all hives host healthy colonies and Queens and many are producing early honey.

Starting this summer 50% of Mike's bee colonies will be transplanted into the new hives that are used in Finland / Poland where the winter climate is much more harsh, yet the bees flourish there despite long nasty winters. Sustainable, regenerative techniques ensure a vigorous apiary system.

If the new hives seem to improve bee health and overwintering success I will continue with another 10% of the remaining hives next year and so on each year until all bee colonies are hived in warm and cozy hives.

The insulation factor as well as a balanced passive ventilation system also allows the bees to stay cooler in the summer without overworking themselves.

Sweat bees are tiny, solitary and sip sweat to aquire water and nutrients. This one landed on me after work on a hot day at Kydd Lake in Egypt. This species of bee is native and perform a great deal of pollenation but are rarely noticed.
