#harvested 40lb more canola honey. They are still finishing the rest but I have some pre orders I can start to fill... . #honey #honeybees #beeswax #nature #savethebees #canada #manitoba #winnipeg #niverville #bzzzant_honey y#beekeeping #bees #manitobabeekeepers #manitobabeekeeping

The bees were enjoying a warm day yesterday. 6°C (42.8°F) This was after my quick hive check and they were feeling awake afterwards.. . .

Two Queen's released from thier cages by the bees have both been found in thier nucs and marked with yellow 2017 paint. The third was not yet out of the cage but acceptance looked secured so I popped the corked side and let her slip down between the frames. I will hunt her out in a few days once she settles in. Hurray! It looks like I may have successfully split hive 3 into three nucs and two hives. If it wasn't for the swarm I caught in July 2016 I would be waiting for more bees as my hive 1 & 2 both had issues this spring. I would be a box keeper without her. I need to try to reproduce her!

You made that harvest too easy for me @flowhive . Easiest box of honey I have had to harvest. Checked for ripe the day before, then gathered around with the whole family, t shirts and shorts to harvest some honey. Biggest issue of the day was the yellow jacket wasps smelling the success! #flowhive #flow #flowhoney #bees #manitobabeekeepers #manitobabeekeeping #honey #honeybees #beeswax #nature #savethebees #canada #manitoba #winnipeg #niverville #bzzzant_honey #summerbees

The honey keeps coming. Only 5 production hives this year, and they had to make comb in those boxes, but we still look like we're heading for 550+ lbs. We're at 450 ish now. Pre orders are filled and we're putting up the 1kg tubs for general purchase now. #flowframes #flowhive is yet to harvest, I have an obnoxiously large jar that were going to fill this weekend I think. #flow hive should have as much as 150 lbs in it with all the boxes together. . .

Look Ma, no gloves! That's the very thumb that was stung right under the nail about 10 minutes later. Yowsers! .
That is the swarm queens original house, but her daughter has officially taken possession. Mom moved to a nice apiary down the road. 😀

A tip for maximizing your comb, and your honey harvest. Reducing woodware and allowing the bees to draw frames out deeper can allow you to get more from less comb. Just don't let it get too thick or it may not fit in your extractor! #doingthingsdifferent #beekeeping #bees #manitobabeekeepers #manitobabeekeeping #honey #honeybees #beeswax #nature #savethebees #canada #manitoba #winnipeg #niverville #bzzzant_honey #summerbees #finalywarm #flowers

Every so oftain I feel a surge of confidence and access a few hives without a suit or even smoke before I get put back in my place. These girls made that comb in under a week. The flow is still on and they are taking advantage of it. #nosuit #beekeeping #bees #manitobabeekeepers #manitobabeekeeping #honey #honeybees #beeswax #nature #savethebees #canada #manitoba #winnipeg #niverville #bzzzant_honey #summerbees #finalywarm #flowers

A very small special harvest of Dandelion/Willow honey to kick the season off. Only 30lbs of this very rare honey mixture made it into jars. Looking forward to canola harvest in a week. #dandelion #dandelionhoney #willow #willowhoney #bees #manitobabeekeepers #manitobabeekeeping #honey #honeybees #beeswax #nature #savethebees #canada #manitoba #winnipeg #niverville #bzzzant_honey #beekeeping

This bumble queen was lopping at some sugar so we gave it some fresh honey right from the burr comb. Look how amazingly furry they are..... Awesome . . .

#flowhive being capped up slowly. Couple weeks until harvest. This hive may make as much as 150 lb this harvest as there are two other honey supers on this hive and they have packed the brood nest with canola honey that will crystallize and the bees will be unable to use during our winters and could starve. As a result I must go into the brood chambers after canola is done and remove any full frames so they can be extracted. They will have plenty of time to replace this with sugar syrup honey that will stay liquid in extreme cold/all year. . . .
