Sabia que para produzir 1 kg de mel, uma abelha necessita de visitar 5 milhões de flores? Impressionante…

Did you know that to produce 1 kg of honey, a bee needs to visit 5 million flowers? Impressive…

Florin, my largest hive, went through a pretty bad storm recently, and something happened internally which caused a number of bees to die. The ants (ever present as usual) took advantage of this and set up a supply line straight through the bees’ intrance to eat up the dead bees and steal larva/honey. If there’s anything left for these gals after this all clears up, it won’t be much. I’m just hoping that they don’t leave for good. Now THAT would be a hard blow.

I’m really hoping that today warms them up a little and helps them get re-invigorated. The cooler weather has really messed with them and thrown them off their game. They are all very slow and I didn’t even really need a suit around them. This is VERY unusual and I am really concerned. All the brood inside looked fine and some was even still hatching. I just don’t understand where their UMPH went.

Please excuse that my camera didn’t realize that it was sideways.

I just don’t understand

The bees are organizing somewhat, and the ants have turned to the bees on the ground.

It appears as though Florin had a rather serious nosema problem. That may explain the lethargic nature I’ve been seeing from them lately. Not sure what to do about that though.

Time to hit the books again! You can never stop learning.

Well it seems that now any action is futile, as Florin as a whole has left. The remaining bees cannot fly and are slowly dying off below, and the signs of a nosema outbreak are crystal clear. It took a hard rain and three days to knock out my strongest hive…

Florin is still holding strong. They look like they’re growing a lot. Hopefully they will be able to find enough honey during the fall for them to get through winter. I don’t doubt they will, but it’s been really dry for a while now.

The yellows are just after the cast-outs of the natural hive it seems. They aren’t trying to get in; they’re just picking up the dead bees on the ground around the hive that are thrown out by the bees inside.
