How to Catch a Swarm of Bees: Part II - Moving bees from the swarm basket to a top bar hive

[embed][/embed]17427 views   88 likes   2 dislikes  

Channel: Phil Chandler - Barefoot Beekeeper Having caught your swarm in a basket and placed top bars over them, leave them for a week or two in the exact spot where their hive is to be located. Then you can easily transfer them to their hive without any further disturbance - just watch and see how easy it is. Even making a slip and dropping a couple of bars doesn't bother them.

Channel: Pine City Apiary  

Hello and welcome back to Pine City Apiary. Today we are going to inspect Hive Face. We are looking for the Queen, for brood, eggs, larva, and for plenty of stores. In addition, we are also going to be looking for a bar to take from them over to Hive Stripe, so they can get a boost. Today, we also see why it is important to have more than just a single hive.

Top Bar Hive Inspection 2019

These are the first bees I've kept. This is my and their first full hive inspection. I caught a swarm into this hive late July last year , as it was so late in the season they only occupied half the bars , so I was a bit worried they wouldn't make it through the winter. But they did !
This is the beginning of the second season with these bees.

Thanks go to Phil Chandler the Barefoot Beekeeper ( ).
And Special thanks to Joe at Furzeleigh Farm for all the support.

Swarm of honeybees moving into bait hive

The easiest - and cheapest - way to start beekeeping is with a swarm. If you can persuade a swarm to move into a hive of its own accord, that saves some work and possibly some tree-climbing.

A box of 30-40 litres capacity is about right, with some clean comb inside as bait. If you have no comb, a couple of drops of citronella or lemongrass essential oil will often do the trick, as it mimics the scent of the queen's pheromone.

This is a short (18") top bar hive that works well as a bait hive. It has the same profile as my other top bar hives, making it easy to transfer bees into a full-size box when needed. You can keep bees in a box this size if you don't mind them throwing swarms more often than they might in a bigger box.

The shallow box on top is an experimental super, which uses two rows of top bars spaced up to 50mm apart. It doubles up as a place to feed fondant if required in winter. Access for feeding is via a slot in one of the lower set of bars; it would need more open access for use as a super.

How to make an 'Eco Floor' for the Horizontal Top Bar Hive

[embed][/embed]39339 views   152 likes   27 dislikes  

Channel: Phil Chandler - Barefoot Beekeeper  

A simple modification to the floor of the horizontal (Kenyan-style) top bar hive improves insulation, reduces air exchange at floor level and creates an enclosed ecosystem designed to provide habitat for earwigs, wood lice, moulds, fungi and myriad other flora and fauna that may be found inside the average hollow log - the natural habitat of the honeybee.

Phil Chandler shows how the deep floor is made and how it can be retro-fitted to any top bar hive made to his - or similar - design.

No creature on Earth lives in isolation from all others. All sorts of relationships develop between different species, many of them mutually beneficial. Yet honeybees are usually housed in sterile, wooden boxes with little opportunity to come into contact with the myriad other bugs, beetles and bacteria found in their natural habitat: hollow trees. Little is known about the effects on bees of other organisms, but it seems reasonable to suppose that because they have co-evolved with a whole range of other species over tens of millions of years, they will have developed mutually beneficial relationships with some of them.

The 'deep litter floor' is an experimental approach to creating an ecosystem within the bees' living quarters, such that these relationships can be re-established. Of particular interest is the mite Stratiolelaps scimitans, which is known to exist in the wild in Britain and is partial to the Varroa destructor mite, troublesome to bees.

Rescuing a Honeybee Colony - a comb cut-out from a condemned building

Channel: Phil Chandler - Barefoot Beekeeper  

This colony had to be removed before the building they were in was demolished, so despite it being the wrong time of year to attempt this risky operation, we had to give it a shot.
We used a polystyrene Langstroth nucleus box in the upright position, tying combs into frames using soft cotton string.

Beekeeping in Norway - a chat with Ragna Jorgensen of Bybi

Ragna invited me to Norway to talk to beekeepers about the possibility of using different ways to look after bees, and different hives, including, of course, the top bar hive.

I had a very enjoyable week in this beautiful country, thanks to my hosts Ragna Jorgensen and Joshua, who will feature in the next podcast, once I have finished editing our long discussion in the car, while driving around the stunning north western coastline of Norway.

This recording was made in the woods outside Oslo, and I made the mistake of leaving my phone switched on (and receiving a swarm call) so please excuse the occasional radio frequency interference that this caused in my audio recorder.
