Using beekeepers' real world experience to solve beekeepers' real world problemsBe Included, Be Involved, Bee Informed
I live in NYC and a member of Staten Island Beekeepers. We had an 80% mortality this winter with some hives just disappearing while others had masses of dead bees. I personally lost three hives, each of a different type. @ were strong while the other was a mix of small swarms I had collected throughout the spring/summer. I had not expected this one to make it. It was the only one infected with SHB’s.
This is my first year tn the bee bussiness.About three weeks ago I had this bad flu that”s going around.I checked on my bees and fed them.They were okay I had a freind go and check on them.He told me he found a few bees dead.I went this past thursday to check on them and I found all of them were dead.I called the guy that”s my trainer and told him what”s going on He said he would get back to me.But he hasn”t so far.I know he”s bussy.But, they told us in a meeting a month ago to check on our hives and to make sure they were alright and to start putting the sugar water to them.Then I saw on the noon news today on CBS that most of the Bee population from coast to coast has been wiped out.They are going to tell more about it on evening news at 7P.M. tonight and tell what”s going on with whats killing the bees.
