TheSun Hive/ Haengekorb was full after a few weeks, and now bees are overflowing it seems at night and the propolis follows them on to the outside of the Haengekorb. The top glass bowl is normally covered with cloths and paper.

Getting clean wax from old combs and frames is not that easy. I do it in two stages. The first stage -- Wax Extracting -- is covered here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wzkxq... This is the second stage -- cleaning blocks of dirty wax to get the bits and pieces out. If you just pour hot wax through a filter, it will cool instantly and solidify on the filter. That's why it's worth putting...

Včely na světě existují již 150 miliónů let. Jsou nezbytnými pomocníky pro růst rostlin a plodin, které slouží jako potrava dalším živočichům. Lidé si během svého vývoje uvědomovali důležitost včel a již od starověku se věnovali včelařství. Nedávno však u včel začalo docházet k nadměrnému úhynu bez zjevné příčiny. Film se věnuje problematice dramaticky se zhoršujícího zdravotního stavu včelstev...

Great is the joy of the natural beekeeper watching the blessed creatures bringing riches of crocus pollen in their cosy home which is a skep made of straw and lined with propolis. But how do you get the honey, I hear you ask and the answer is that they get to keep it and they seem really happy with that deal. And we get the joy of them which is abundant. Love to the bees!

The Sun Hive/Haengekorb outlines the outer, invisible "skin" of the "Bien", the wholeness and single entity of the bee. It reveals the innate round shape of the "Bien". It's true nature becomes palpable, through the gestalt and it's position in space. The Haengekorb shows, how everything within the colony is round. The shape of it speaks with a pre-verbal-...

A great wonder to see what the bees built in four weeks of which only one was good weather. The skeps weren't ready when the swarm came, so this was an opportunity to exchange them to ones coated in cow dung. Also, the inside covers over the wooden hoops needed to be changed, as the bees had eaten the calico cloth. The form of the nest beautifully reveals the preferences of the Bien....

Bees LOVE to live in a tree... Trees that are cut down in Shinto shrines are not sold and are left to rot. I have a plan of converting them into beehives...

Get a drill and at least a 1.5 inch auger bit. When you burn, the fire will follow the drilled hole. Without the hole the fire will follow the easiest path, which is usually out the side.

When the population of worker bees exceeds the resource capacity of a hive, a portion of the colony will leave to find a new home. A swarm is the natural way for a hive to divide itself (usually) in half, and transport the new colony (with the old queen) to a temporary spot (cluster) from which select bee members (scouts) search for a new home.

Scientists still are not sure what came first, plants or pollinators, but one thing is sure, without pollinators our world would be bleak and life as we know it would cease to exist.

In the winter of 2006, a strange phenomenon fell upon honeybee hives across the country. Without a trace, millions of bees vanished from their hives. A precious pollinator of fruits and vegetables, the disappearing bees left billions of dollars of crops at risk and threatened our food supply. The epidemic set researchers scrambling to discover why honeybees were dying in record numbers —...
