Winter with the Bees


20130105-170957.jpg

One of the hardest things for me, about being a Beekeeper in the North East, is winter. Winter is the time that all the Drones (males) get kicked out of the hive and the rest of the hive clusters together to stay warm. Every weekend for the last few weeks I have been cleaning dead bees out of the front of the hive and it makes me panic a little each time. Though the reality is in the hive there is about 30 to 40 thousand healthy bees, but just seeing the 5 to 10 on the deck always makes me worry.
