Techniques of Beekeeping for Honey Not Everyone Knows

Hummingbirds are not an easy species to raise, so in order to have a quality bee colony, the honey is delicious and nutritious. Farmers can refer honey beekeeping techniques through the article below.

  1. How to choose a beekeeping spot?

First of all, you need to choose a cool, quiet place, near the source of pollen nectar, so that they can provide better nutrition and create honey more efficiently.

The place to raise hummingbirds for honey must be well ventilated and close to the source of pollen nectar

Note, stay away from locations with pesticides, chemicals, harmful birds and animals, wild bees.

Watch out for diseased areas to make sure bees thrive and don’t get infected.

  1. How to set up a hive of bees

The apiary is the nest, the home of the bees, so you need to be well prepared. The crate can be made from foam, wood, etc., 25 – 30cm high from the ground, the distance between each box is 1m.

The beekeeping crate is also the place where bees live, so it needs to be prepared well

  1. When does the bee swarm divide naturally?

External conditions:

Food sources (bile, pollen) are abundant.

– Good weather (not hot, too cold, too hot)

Conditions inside the bee colony: High density of bees, strong queen bee, high demand for offspring, excess food and bees living in crowded fruit boxes.

  1. Phenomenon of bees before natural swarm division

A few weeks before dividing the swarm, bees build many holes for male bees and build 3 to 10 queen hats in the two corners and below the cake.

Normally when the queen’s hat is old, the bees divide the flock, but sometimes there is a new queen or a new queen bee has divided the herd.

Bees divide the swarm from 8 to 11 am and 14 to 16 pm on good days. When dividing the swarm, the old queen bee along with more than half of the worker bees and some male bees eat their honey, then fly out to start the hive, then gather on the porch, nearby tree branches and old swarm, when catching the bees again Again, bees should be put in another box and placed anywhere.

When dividing naturally, bees are not noisy and noisy like when flying.

  1. Natural herd division time

– In the North: bees often divide in March-April, a few in October-November.

– In the South: bees often divide in October – November and February – April (early and middle of the honey crop).

  1. Treating bees to divide the natural swarm

In the case of a small colony of bees: Overcoming the division of the swarm by replacing the old queen bee with a new queen when the flower source is abundant, adding more feet, turning honey or specializing in nectar for other swarms, widening the distance from the bridge. and remove the anti-cold, remove the blind queens and cut open the holes of the male beehives.

With a small number of bees - many will have different natural ways to divide the colony

In the case of strong bees, the swarm divider: Need to be fed enough, choose the blind queens to promote the station in an empty position such as in the 2 corners and under the cake to use after the bees divide the new swarm.

The natural swarm of bees often eats enough honey and the excrement of young worker bees at the age of waxing and building quickly, so as soon as the colony is stabilized, it is possible for that colony to build a foot layer. The original swarm of bees keeps the best 1 queen hat so that the rest of the queen can be cut off.

We hope that with the information we share. Farmers will minimize the problems encountered in the process of raising fly bees for honey. Wishing farmers success with this new breeding model.
