July Bee Yard Report

Every 10 days or so,

At end of Sourwood honey flow (after 7/25 - last week),

  • harvest Sourwood supers, bring home, dry, and extract
  • return hives from Mountains at dusk
  • markedly entrance reduce weak hives to prevent robbing
  • check broodnest/queen once (at end of flow)
  • feed wet combs back to bees, and then
  • store dry supers under Paramoth
