The Bee Health app is based on current scientific knowledge to address honey bee diseases and pests. It is a handy resource to help beekeepers and other users to detect, diagnose, manage and treat honey bee diseases and pests. It includes pictures and treatment options which will aid beekeepers in adopting appropriate pest management practices. Thus, beekeepers can improve bee health and enhance on-farm food safety and biosecurity practices in their operations.

Max's Bees Part 1

 

This is a video about a Top Bar Hive that has turned aggressive.  It is moved to a remote location and the honey and brood removed and the hive prepared to be converted to a Langstroth Hive and given a new queen.

 

Max's Bees Part 2

This is a continution of Part 1.  We cannot find the queen so a queen excluder is attached to the bottom of the super, elevated and the bees shaken in front of the hive.  We are preparing it to receive a new queen.

Max's Bees 3 

This is a continution of Part 1 & 2.  We have prepared the hive it to receive a new queen.  A queen is not available so we have taken a frame of eggs and young larva from a 2012 Carniolan Breeder queen and will insert it in the brood nest and then give the hive a 50/50 sugar water to help it get started.

Prices are subject to change (see Note)


 5 Frame Nuc

$300.00

Single Hive 

$400.00


What is Bee Pollen?  See Bee Pollen Chemical Composition and Therapeutic Application

 

5 Frame Nucs ($300) are placed in a 5 frame nucleous (nuc) hive and includes a queen, 5 frames which are a combination of drawn comb with bees, brood, honey (nectar in various stages of ripening), and pollen. We have taken the risk out of installing package bees for you in a nuc and have insured that the queen is a good laying queen with a good brood pattern.   When installing package bees there is a risk that the bees will act like a swarm and leave the hive after a few days.  With the presence of open brood the bees will not leave.  All you will need to do is transfer the contents of the nuc to you your Langstroth equipment.  You may also keep your bees in the nuc for several weeks before transferring.  We treat all nucs for varroa mites in late March and early April unless you ask us not to do so. 

 
Hives can be picked up at our yards in Belen, NM.

Availability of BEES are all dependent on WEATHER and other factors which are out of our control.  

NOTE:  Your may request your bees to be treated with oxalic acid vaporizer for the control of the varroa mite at no additional cost.  The exception is package bees.  We do not have time to treat packages in March and April.  Oxalic acid is naturally occurring chemical found in many vegetables such as spinach.  See the following article for details:  click here

 

Our Single Hive with Bees ($400) is an 8 or 10 frame hive body with a 2022 queen,  Frames are a combination of drawn comb with bees, brood, honey (nectar in various stages of ripening), pollen and frames with foundation. This single hive has a migratory top and a temporary bottom for transport only.  We provide a permanent bottom board to transfer your bees to when you set up your hive.

 

We have taken most of the risk out of developing a hive of bees for you and have insured that the queen is a good laying queen with a good brood pattern.  

 

When installing package bees there is a risk that the bees will act like a swarm and leave the hive after a few days.  With the presence of open brood the bees will not leave.  You do not need to transfer these bees into any other equipment.  This hive will expand on its' own with proper food resources.  These hives are delivered with a special top and bottom board for easy transportation with out endangering the hive of bees.  When you reach the location where you are setting up your bees just remove these two covers and place on your bottom board and put your top cover on the hive.  The frames in this hive have been arranged for optimum hive expansion.  NOTE:  You will need a second and third super as this is an actively growing hive (depending on food resources and hive management).
