Sad sight to see. 7 of 14 hives have died, but sadly of starvation. The balls were massive and they ran out of honey in the top box's. Bottom box's have plenty but if the cluster gets a cold snap when they have none left in the immediate area they can't move to the honey and starve.

I have slid fondant into the remaining hives in the hopes that I can stave off further starvation. If I can keep these 7 hives alive another month we should be out of the woods as far as winter. And I can use these hives to split and restock our numbers.

Good evening Tsina Lovers
This is a box ridden by wax moth. As you can see they borrowed, laid eggs and spread quickly through out the hive. They feed on beeswax, pollen, and honey bee larvae. Definitely a major pest that we are constantly having problems with. .

As if this business isn’t hard enough let’s throw in some punkass loser bee thief’s. They better hope the law finds them before I do!! Just moved these hives in a couple nights ago to the almonds. Support a beekeeper and go order some honey and other cool shit from www.beecreeper.com #stolenbees #kerncounty #almonds #beekeeperproblems #thattimeofyear #bees #almondpollination2018 #thieves #norespect #beekeeperlife #khc #beecreeper #beecreeperclothing #koboldhoneyco #karmahasnodeadline

And just like that... I'm facing a handful of slimeout hives. These hives were worked literally less than 2 hours ago. These were super strong singles, massive nectar dripping everywhere + hive beetles = hive beetles haven. All it took was going through the hives, disrupting and breaking the propolis traps that the beetles are policed to, letting them loose and free to stress the hive to the point of evacuation....#hawaii #beekeeperproblems 😑

UVM bee researchers have teamed up with the VT Apiary Inspection Program to improve the states’s database on honey bee hives and beekeeper management practices. Student volunteers helped enter data from these beekeeper census forms into the new database. Raffle swag was won. @uvmbeekeepers #honeybees #beehealth #dataentry #varroamite #beeproblems #beekeeperproblems #honey #apiaryinspection #bearseatbees #beekeepercensus #vtagriculture #localhoney

Finally got the courage to check on my bees for the first time this winter. Was too afraid to with the deep freeze temps we've been having. Down to -39C on some days. Needless to say I am a very happy beek #bees #Beekeeper #beekeeperproblems #apiary #happyashell #savethebees #deepfreeze #wintersucks

One of my pictures from 01/20/18. Depending on the weather I won’t be disturbing the bees again for a while since February and March are known for unpredictable temperature swings. I really only opened my hives on the 20th since over the past 5 years my hives have been gone before New Years Day and I needed to know what was awaiting me this year. #bruce_beekeeper #beekeeping #beekeeper #beekeeperlife #beekeepers #beekeeperproblems #honeybee #honeybees #savethebees #protectthebees

Throw back to summer fun in the mud! Its all fun and games till you get stuck! The struggles of homesteading! We were trying to take our bee pallet, fencing, supplies, up to our front field! We had to call in the reinforcements @the_iron_tree .

At 12 and 13 these kids have no clue the hard work,time, and money that goes into keeping bees. These little shits should serve time working for a beekeeper for a couple years. Teach your kids the value of hard work. #respect #beekeeperlife beecreeper #koboldhoneyco #khc #honeybees #vandalism #work #beekeeperproblems #honey

Our tie down solution for our trucks. I would never not have them! A must for any beekeeper. #beekeeping #trucks #tiedown #beekeeperproblems

As a female beekeeper wearing a beekeeping suit is not the most flattering outfit in the world. But I will take safety over fashion any day. My new rhinestone sunglasses definitely style up my bee suit. ##ladybeekeeper #beekeeper #beekeeperproblems #rhinestones
