Every hive has a story. Last week we did a bee hive cut from the same house in Pacific Paradise that we removed a hive from late last year. 🐝
This hive had only been there for a month or so but when we opened it up the population was very low and there was no brood or eggs to be found. This hive was almost certainly to source of the swarm we caught and wrote about in our previous post. 🐝
The comb had half a dozen used queen cells so we knew
the challenge this time was try to find a virgin or freshly mated queen. These queens are usually smaller and harder to differentiate from the other worker bees. 🐝
After all of the comb had been removed and just about every last bee had been vacuumed the queen came crawling out from behind the insulation foil.
🐝
Because this hive has only been established for a very short period this was a really straight forward removal. If you want to compare this to a 4year old hive, check out recent posts by @jpthebeeman to see a monster removal. If you have a feral hive, the quicker you act to remove it, the smaller the repairs required afterwards.

#Argyranthemum
🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃
A cool-season favorite for springtime #gardens, #argyranthemum is a delightful annual flower with #daisy-like #blooms in cheery Easter and springtime colors. In addition to its pretty blooms, 💐 #argyranthemum has dark #green, ferny #foliage🍃 and grows in a tidy mound, adding lots of garden interest even if it doesn't have any #flowers on it. And like most flowers in the #daisy family, this one attracts butterflies and other #pollinator #insects.
Grow sun-loving argyranthemum in garden beds and borders, as well as in container gardens with flowers such pansy, viola, and flowering kale. 🍃Source :/www.costafarms.com🍃

Premiär för bipollen!
Bina har samlat nektar och pollen på en massa olika blommor trots den torra sommaren. Sammansättningen varierar dag från dag med alla olika färger från gult, orangt till grått och nästan svart #pollen ##beekeeping #honeybees #beekeeper #apiary #bees #apiculture #urbanbees #apicultura #honey #apis #imker #apismellifera #urbanbeekeeper #savethebees #urbanbeehive #pollinator #imkerei #beefarm #backyardbeekeeper #bee #biodling #hive #beehive #honeybee

The fun continues....another surprise find! Saw this Viceroy in the #elmstreetgreen wildflower park while on a virtual training run with @runsprenkelrun (who was in Bentonville, AR today). It mimics the ever popular bad tasting poisonous Monarch...the black line running across the veins of the hindwings is a key characteristic.

Diving headfirst into the new week like this #bumblebee. It's a busy one and I am so excited!
Side note: these snaps are past the ideal picking stage (the less pollination that goes on the better) but I was out of town and they went all crazy on me.

E poi finalmente arrivano le soddisfazioni...
Dopo mesi di preoccupazioni, attese, punture, saune involontarie, sveglie all'alba e nottate al buio a spostare le api, lo togli dal melario, senti il suo profumo e sei ripagata di tutto!

Had the chance to quickly pop my head into some hives over the last couple of days to check on the girls, they’re handling this winter like true champions 🤩🐝💛

Last week I was informed by hospital staff that I’ve developed an allergy to our bees after having my first anaphylactic reaction following some stings. I broke down in tears because I was sure my days working with bees was over. Instead my parents encouraged me to keep doing my favorite thing in the world and got me this astronaut suit. With absolute respect and humility, and a little bit of hoping I’m not a big dummy, I’m jumping back in. So with respect and with humility, come at me, bees. I dare you.

It’s getting wild in the #garden. Black currants are ripening! We’ve got a squash plant coming out of the compost and getting ready to take over one side of the greenhouse. Flowers are coming on beautifully! And our #pollinator count is off the charts. So many happy creatures enjoying our #blooms. #flowers #growyourownfood #bees #sunflower #zinnia #summer #mygarden #urbangarden

196.1/365 "Negative space." So. Was so excited about this capture, I didn't edit to straighten the horizon. Much better straightened! Bumblebuzz pollination the sequel!
Info from the original post: Recently, I finally witnessed a bumblebee "buzz-pollinating" our tomatoes. He was moving so fast from flower to flower, I couldn't get a picture. Today, I heard it again, and got lucky! Pollen in tomatoes is held way up inside the blossom. To gather it, a bumble hangs under it and vibrates at a higher frequency than its normal buzz sound. The vibration releases the pollen.

FINALLY! I have been anxiously awaiting squash season this year (just like I do EVERY year). Gardeners can see the future in a way, watching the food we're going to eat as it grows. I can taste this squash already! °

So far the zucchini and the spaghetti squash have started, though there are quite a few more 'ghettis to bloom. The season seems to be aligning well, both species have male and female flowers blooming at the same time. I am proud to say I haven't forgotten how to uh... 'help' in the pollination department! Now here's hoping for heat and rain hahaha! °

Watered this morning at 6 and there were swarms of bumblebees in the flowers. Never have I ever seen that many bumblebees at once’s in my life. It was very cool. #bumblebee #squashflower #pollinator
