Why can’t you just leave unused honeycomb in your garage or shop for the winter? We’ll tell you all about it.
So this seems obvious, but we meet people all the time that can’t tell the difference between wasps, honeybees, bumble bees, and carpenter bees – we can’t totally blame them as they have just enough similarities to make it confusing. However, there are pretty major differences that make the honeybee stand out both physically and culturally.
Among the man-made hives, there are many types. Langstroth, Warre and top bar hive are the commonly used. Let us delve into the specifics of these hives.
Bees are inspiring creatures. They create their own food through foraging without damaging the plant they feed from. They do not waste anything – putting the wax, propolis, pollen, water, honey to work in an impressively efficient way.
Rotating comb for a healthier bee colony is a natural beekeeping technique that encourages better pattern in egg laying, better egg and honey production and a reduction of diseases by removing old and possibly contaminated comb.
