Chaos In The Apiary
Grateful for thoughts on my analysis below.
Big week at work: which left me only 15 mins to catch swarms during the day, no time to analyse and just having to combine colonies during the evening without too much thought
Swarms (that I suspect were casts from south facing allotment hives) on 22, 24 and 25 May – but I had no time to count days since artificially swarming and since the combining to analyse what was going on
Ran out of nucs on 22 May

Beekeeping can be a full time profession or a simple hobby. Yet, more often than not, what started as a hobby would become a profession. But you cannot merely tell and decide yourself you will begin to do beekeeping. You need to have adequate knowledge and comprehension on the field that you’re going to enter before beginning on any avocation or profession. Then it’s about time to indulge yourself if you’ve been putting off your interest in beekeeping for quite a while. Bee farming may seem easy; learning the basic beekeeping lessons can get you away to a good beginning.
What does a beekeeper have to know?
You should have full interest on beekeeping to start at the right foot. You will need to spend time taking care of your own colonies of bees. You should also have consented to share your home space with the bees. There are potential dangers in beekeeping that can hurt not only you but your family as well. Your focus is not just to earn money by selling honey; a good beekeeper should have a keen interest and passion in rearing bees.
An apiarist should know the right place for the beehives. The area must have adequate sources of nectar for the bees to get. You have to make sure beekeeping is enabled in your town if you decide to set your beehives at your backyard. There are several areas confined to beekeeping; you need to get permission relating to this.
Beekeepers must understand whether beekeeping supplies can be found in the area where the beehives are situated. You may never understand when you need to attend a local beekeeping shop; it’s best that a nearby beekeeping store is reachable.
Equipment and protective supplies will also be important for beekeepers to understand. Beekeepers are prone to bee stings; the ensemble that is correct must be worn during beekeeping sessions. This will minimize the odds of being stung by your bees. Understand the right kind of suit to select to keep you from any potential danger in beekeeping.
All the beekeeping attempts would be ineffective if you’re not able to harvest honey from your bees. A beekeeper should know the approaches in collecting the honey from the comb; beeswax is also part of the yields in beekeeping.
