Swarm Trap & Pheromone
Inspired by other bloggers and my cousin Simon I have set up 3 hive traps containing a swarm lure using a pheromone (Nasanov).
I have bought these swarm traps that are made from a moulded fibre material that should last several years and is designed to be like the hollow of a tree.
I’ve also attached some swarm lure inside which contains a synthetically produced Nasanov pheromone. The Nasanov (alternatively, Nasonov) ph… Read More

Beekeeping, like every other action, has its own dos and don’ts. Beginning beekeeping generally involves purchasing bees and the needed equipment. However, some individuals who are starting this avocation normally make a few mistakes. It’s ok to make mistakes, which post can help new beekeepers prevent making the same mistakes others have previously.
Here are three errors which every beekeeper should avert:
1. Not knowing the best time to start a beekeeping company or avocation can end up being a disaster. It often leads to a lack of money and your bees. Since most bees die during the winter winter is the worst possible time to begin. This would compel a beekeeper to buy a fresh mountain of bees, which would cost more money. Autumn is another inferior time since you will find fewer flowers, hence a smaller quantity of honey harvested to start beekeeping. The best time to start beekeeping is during summer, which is the time of the year where there are plenty of flowers that are blooming.
2. Purchasing used equipment and old books. This really is a common error made by many start beekeepers. Buying used equipment and old beekeeping books is not a good thought, although it is clear that one would desire to cut costs as much as possible. First, used equipment can come with “familial” problems. The extractor outlet might have a flow, or the uncapping knife might not be sharp enough to uncap all the wax in one go. This would surely impact the quality of one’s honey, which will ben’t an ideal scenario particularly if a beekeeper is intending to begin a honey-selling company. Second, aged info can be provided by old novels on beekeeping. One might be stuck using the conventional approach when there are better and quicker ways production honey and to keep beehives.
3. Refraining from purchasing protective gear. Think about this. If one doesn’t wear protective gear when handling the hives and accumulating the honeycombs, he/she’ll most likely come out as a pincushion with all the bee stingers. Protective gear is pricey, yes, but it’ll help beekeepers avert spending medical bills from all the bee stings.
These three errors happen to be presented here to help future beekeepers avert them. Before getting started beekeeping, it is best to consult with a professional beekeeper. If purchasing a particular item appears too expensive, constantly think about the ending price (if they don’t buy this item now, will it cost them more later on?). In the end, it truly is up to the person to decide the best strategy.
