Comb Honey 2011
Posted by Administrator on 7/24/2011
Finally received some rain in Central OH.  Needed rain to get the nectar flowing from the plants again so the bees can finish off the comb honey. 
19 Swarms in 2011
Posted by Administrator on 7/24/2011 to Bees
Ended up this year with 19 swarms - we typically will get 30 plus swarms.  All the calls came within about 2 weeks.  Typically we'll get calls throughout a 2 month period.  We had so much rain this year that people just weren't outside enough to see the bees swarming.  We were able to get another couple of folks into beekeeping with these swarms and Glenn is helping them with their hives.   
Colony Collapse Disease
Posted by Administrator on 7/24/2011 to News
Here's a great video on CCD (Colony Collapse Discorder)  http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episodes/silence-of-the-bees/full-episode/251/
 
During the winter of 2006-2007, some beekeepers began to report unusually high losses of 30-90 percent of their hives. As many as 50 percent of all affected colonies demonstrated symptoms inconsistent with any known causes of honeybee death: sudden loss of a colony’s worker bee population with very few dead bees found near the colony.

The queen and brood (young) remained, and the colonies had relatively abundant honey and pollen reserves. But hives cannot sustain themselves without worker bees and would eventually die. This combination of events resulting in the loss of a bee colony has been called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD).

Why it's happening

There have been many theories about the cause of CCD, but the researchers who are leading the effort to find out why are now focused on these factors:

  • increased losses due to the invasive varroa mite (a pest of honeybees);
  • new or emerging diseases such as Israeli Acute Paralysis virus and the gut parasite Nosema;
  • pesticide poisoning through exposure to pesticides applied to crops or for in-hive insect or mite control;
  • bee management stress;
  • foraging habitat modification
  • inadequate forage/poor nutrition and
  • potential immune-suppressing stress on bees caused by one or a combination of factors identified above.

Additional factors may include poor nutrition, drought, and migratory stress brought about by the increased need to move bee colonies long distances to provide pollination services.
