SPRING VISITS

  • In the Spring you may need to split your hives.  Old comb and equipment should be replaced.  Overall health can be assessed.  If your bees did not survive winter a hive autopsy can help you avoid mistakes in the future.

SUMMER

  • In the Summer Best for Bees can provide expert advice on adding supers, protecting from invaders, gently dealing with busy hives, and assessing overall health of the bees.  Beekeeping is easier with two sets of hands, especially as the hives get heavier through the season! 

FALL & WINTER

  • Winters can be long in Southern Ontario, and it is important to leave enough honey for the bees.  Fall is the time of year where Best for Bees removes honey from the hives, leaving enough for the bees for the long Winter.  If populations are low hives can be merged.  Winterizing is an art Best for Bees has been honing over several years.
