Honey being capped by the workers. Once it is capped it is ready for harvest. Bees cap honey when the water content is less than 20%, this is when it is ripe and ready for extracting. #fascinating #superorganism #beeamazing #beehappy #apiary #honeybees #bees #apismellifera #nectar #honey #beeswax #propolis #pollen #national #nationalbeehive #beehive #colony #londonbees🐝 #london #workers #ladies #queenbee #beekeeper #apiarist #pollinators #workerbees #cedar #londonladies #honeyextraction

The ladies working hard to bring in the sweet nectar. Honeybees will travel as far as 3 miles in any direction from the hive for nectar, although they have been found to go even further! #fascinating #superorganism #beeamazing #beehappy #apiary #honeybees #bees #apismellifera #nectar #honey #beeswax #propolis #pollen #national #nationalbeehive #beehive #colony #londonbees🐝 #london #workers #ladies #queenbee #beekeeper #apiarist #pollinators #workerbees #cedar

Honey harvest. The bees have done well this year. I don't feed the bees syrup, I always leave them plenty of honey to get through the winter.

I've moved some colonies to a new location. I am running 4 hives this year. Was a lovely morning in the apiary. I already have a super of honey on one of the hives, I have never had a spring crop of honey before. #beekeeper #londonbeekeeper #apismellifera #apiarist #honeybee #nectar #flowers #pollen #propolis #pollinators #ladies #workers #drones #queen #swarming #artificialswarm #queencells #londonbees🐝 #beeswax #apiary

Down on the plot and found this lady collecting visiting flowers collecting nectar. I am fascinated by all creatures but Bee colonies are known as a superorganism, they have a highly organised division of roles and all divisions are needed for the colony to survive. #honeybee #beekeeper #pollinators #pollen #nectar #apismellifera #london #londonbees🐝 #flowers #honey #nectar #spring #workerbee #superorganism #londonwildlife #nature #allotment #plot1 #beeswax #northlondon #savethebees #ladies #sting #creaturesgreatandsmall #environment #urbanbees #urbanbeekeeping #urbanfarming #forager

Mar 27, 2019

Here are some of the signs found in the hive which suggest the bees swarming instinct has started to kick in. picture 1 shows a play cup, this could become a queen cell and eventually a new queen bee. It is important to check these for eggs or larvae, 16 days after the egg is laid a new queen will emerge. This one is empty. Near the center of Picture 2 you can see a drone with the larger eyes. A honeybee colony reproduces by splitting. At this time of year there will be lots of queens to be mated and the drones will go out looking for them. A virgin queen will mate with a number of drones on her mating flight returning to the colony. Picture 3 shows capped drone brood in the foreground, these are larger than the capped worker brood in the background. The bees will produce more and more drone brood to pass on the genetics of the colony. #apiarist #honeybee #honeybees #swarm #swarming #drones #queens #reproduction #superorganism #bees #london #urbanbeekeeping #nature #wildlife #beebees #capperbrood #workerbee #queenbee #londonbees🐝

Did my first inspections of the year on Saturday. This is very early to be inspecting but with the temperature being so warm it was a chance to check the health of the colonies. I removed the empty supers from each hive, the brood box has plenty of stores and the bees are bringing in lots of pollen for the developing bees. 3 frames of brood in each hive and are developing well. #londonbees🐝 #london #beekeeper #londonbeekeeper #beekeeping #pollinators #honeybees #honey #bees #cappedbrood #apismellifera

Dec 3, 2018

The bees are very quiet at the moment. The ladies still make an appearance when the temperatures reach 12 °c but the main role of the worker bees is to keep the brood nest between 32°c -35°c for the brood to develop. The queen will stop laying and colonies become bloodless. It is said that this coincides with the shortest days. This clip is from August time, the honey boxes were still on the hives. Each hive still has a honey super to get them through the winter. #honeybees #winter #brood #londonbees🐝 #beekeeper #london #pollinators #honey

Sep 16, 2018

We keep bees at the Garden and our beekeeper (or apiarist) reports that due to the much drier summer the honey produced this year is more limited in quantity, but the flavour is fantastically intense. Not sure yet if any will be available in our shop as the bees may need their stockpile. 🌼 To make one pound of honey, bees must visit 2 million flowers.

London as you know is not my natural habitat, but there are compensations, and I get a lot of cuddles from 👱🏻‍♀️👱🏻‍♀️👱🏻‍♀️. We’ve had a very quiet day, and my outing was the printers and Cass Art Store with 👱🏻‍♀️3, as 👩🏼was having a slow day. I’m promised a better day tomorrow, and then, blow me down if I didn’t get stung by a bee 🐝 as well. Well I didn’t shriek and scream like some others I know, but blimey my aunts garden is like playing Russian roulette 😐 . Well 👩🏼and Aunt were super quick to get sting out, and foot into bicarbonate of soda, but I was sore and a touch humiliated, but glad I took it like a man. I did get extra kisses 😘 😘😘and cuddles but it was not My best day today. Max in contrast was loving a quiet day, and was Velcro’d to 👩🏼 for the whole of it. 👨🏻called to say Little Luna had done a great job of watering 💦 the tomatoes 🍅- when did my 👨🏻👩🏼get so dull? Really 🍅,no news about 🦊 🐼 or bunnies 🐰? I decided to make my feelings known, and sulked in the suitcase for a while. I did hear 👩🏼👱🏻‍♀️say ‘poor Archie’ so I think it did have the desired effect. #londondogs #dachshund #miniaturewirehaireddachshund #bees #londonbees🐝 #family #sulking #dachshundsdaily #dachshundsofinstagram

Jul 15, 2018

Drone honey bee. The stinger is part of the female reproductive system so this male honey bee can't sting me. It looks like the main nectar flow is over so this chap may have been kicked out of the hive by the female worker bees as drones are no longer required and would be a drain on the honey the colonies need through the winter. The drones role is to mate with queen bees, when they start to appear in April it is a sign that swarming season is fast approaching. #beekeeper #honeybee #drone #apismellifera #honey #sting #dronebee #swarming #nectarflow #kickedout #lonelybee #londonbees #pollinators #londonbees🐝 #nature #nectar
