Robbing

Posted in Bees on July 25th, 2012

I placed a extracted honey super back onto the hives. Which started a robbing frenzy. I sealed up the upper entrances with leaves and put in entrance reducers. A  sign of robbing is bees attempting to enter the hive by cracks or non entrance holes in the hives. After sealing up the hive the robbing slowed down.

We had a great time at the SABA booth at the Saratoga County Fair. Met lots of friendly beekeepers and people looking for information about bees.
