I have a number of Non-native invasive trees on a property I just bought and will need to gradually replace them.  Any ideas for flowering, bee friendly, bushy native trees?

Hello everyone, 

I need help relocating a small be hive that lives in a small box i installed on a tree a year ago. and now, my wife wanted a 2 deep bee hives to encourage more bees and avoid swarming.

can anyone help in this process?
We live in the wellington area.

thank you

long story.

2 years ago i had a screech owl nest box installed, the bees took it before the owls, so i made a post here and someone helped me remove the bees. My wife wasnt happy about that, so i made a box for them and hand it on the tree, a few days later it was occupied by bees, and every few months a swarm takes off. My wife loves butterflies and bees, and love helping them, so now i'm building a bee hive with 2 deep units for broods. and we want to relocate the bees to the new hive.

Thanks again

Gina, Beecoming a member of PBCBKA no longer is an automatic membership in FSA.  

There have been some big changes at the FSA.  As a result PBCBKA in in the midst of figuring out what to do about it.  Stay tuned :)

I have a NewBee question, as a member of PBC Beekeepers I believe a portion of our dues go the Florida State Beekeepers Assn. if that is the case, how do we get a login and password to view their online news letter?

I don't think it is a set it and forget it. You still need to maintain the health like you would any hive. Only the honey harvesting has changed so you do not have to disturb the bees as much. Also no wax collecting. We got the 6 flow frames which will leave room for two regular frames if we choose to keep both kinds in the box. But I think we will just have a two hive boxes and keep them separate. We also plan on having the collection jars sealed not open like they show in the video.

John, stand out in your yard on a sunny day and spill a little honey on a plate.  Just watch what happens in a few minutes.  If you wander into an apiary and pour some honey on a plate in minutes you will find yourself inundated with bees and you will begin a feeding frenzy which is known as as robbing.  When one harvests honey it is done quickly and clandestinely as possible lest you cause all the bees to rob each other of their honey.
