Difficulties

Our Story

We started with a package of bees installed into a top bar hive in Spring 2014. We did a walk-away split into a langstroth in early summer. Both hives survived the first winter. Spring of 2015 we created 2 nucs, and in the summer we moved into full boxes.

Why

Keeping bees is a ton of fun. Its so neat to watch them make more bees, comb, and honey.

Difficulty

For a backyard beekeeper, it only requires an hour a week. Online communities/forums can answer any questions you have, as can your local beekeeper association. The bees do all the hard work, you just need to not get in their way.

Saw eggs.
Stole a medium frame of honey. It filled a mason jar with a little left over.
The second deep had no brood in in, and was mostly full of nectar.
I think next inspection I will put a medium with frames with starter strips on top of the bottom deep.
