They are important contributors to the NCC Community Garden and have been incredibly busy this summer. We are hoping for the best for winter! Donna in Delaware August 29, at When I turned the bend in the road, I noticed this huge bee hive in a maple tree in the front yard. So far, they have not had it taken down.
I hope that no one gets stung.
We are in NCCo. Carol September 5, at 1: I will take your advice as to what to plant to help the bee hives up the street and will pass on the information to another friend who took some of those hives to her home to help them survive.
I realize how important they are to our balance of nature. Thanks… Thomas September 9, at 3: Colony Collapse Disorder only affects commercial hives that pollinate commercial crops using commercial pesticides.
Apis mellifera is not even a species native to the New World. They are severely inbred now and geneticially susceptible to many diseases. Commercial beekeepers transport the hives during the growing season to pollinate specific crops at specific times. In the winter bees are fed sugar water.
There is nothing you can do with your personal garden that will have any effect whatever on commercial bees. Kev C September 9, at 7: September 9, at 3: CCD affects all bee colonies of Apis mellifera. The pesticides affect other pollinator species as well.
Domestic colonies seldom gather pollen and nectar from their own immediate surroundings, leaving these for last resort. They will forage in next doors gardens and even in neighbouring fields. Hence why pesticides are a problem. The average bee will travel easily 5 miles for food and they will do this continually for the better part of weeks which is virtually their entire life cycle.
The first weeks are spent in the hive administering to the brood and other tasks. Once out and about they travel continuously looking for food. In weeks a lot of land is covered. So the comment above by Thomas is clearly based on incorrect advice.
CCD can affect all colonies of Apis mellifera regardless of whether they are commercial or domestic. The impact is clearly greater with commercial colonies due to the sheer numbers.
Most households that keep bees will have only a small number of hives, between 1 and 5 usually, whereas commercial outfits have many hundreds of colonies. Faith Voigt September 9, at 7: Care2, can we have a repeat publication next spring and maybe a reminder in June or July next year, to catch people when they are preparing their flower schemes?
Thanks and good luck to everybody on the team Ruth September 10, at 9: Wendy September 10, at 1: Last year, we had a honeybee swarm break off from the main group and use one of our trees for a couple of days.
We called our local bee man but they had gone by the time he arrived. Thomas September 10, at Agricultural pesticides are generally only applied to commercially pollinated crops before and after they bloom.
Otherwise they would kill the bees outright and defeat the whole purpose. As the bees are moved from crop to crop, they are exposed to residual commercial pesticides all year long, even including in the corn syrup used to feed them through winter.
Escaped and stationary hives forage on wildflowers and do not have anywhere near the exposure to pesticides commercial bees do.A North Carolina “swamp park” has posted a video explaining how alligators survive in a frozen pond and it’s both creepy and bizarre.
