Samuel Samaniego Gamez is a teacher from Mexico.

"I am a teacher at the Autonomous University of Baja California at the Institute of Agricultural Sciences, and I work in the beekeeping area of ​​the Institute. I am a collaborator in the academic body of Sustainable Animal Production.

The institute apiary that we are developing is located in Mexicali, Baja California Mexico, we began work in March, we currently have 24 hives, to which they have already been assigned QR code.



I used your application, which I think is very good, currently I have the apiary records on my smartphone. I consider that the tools that can be accessed when the data is synchronized in the cloud are very necessary, since it is possible to keep the statistical record of each hive."

EARTH University prepares its students from various countries to contribute to sustainable development by obtaining an undergraduate degree in Agricultural Sciences. Bees are so essentials to agriculture, it was crucial to give opportunities to students to learn about beekeeping and the role of bees in food production.


In 2015, Annie Tremblay M.Sc., zoologist, and Mirlande Hector, a 4th year student (Promotion 2015, Haiti) established an Educational Apiary. The following year, and since then, Annie Tremblay has been teaching beekeeping and bee conservation as an elective course for the 4th year students interested in the subject.  


The Educational Apiary allows students to really have the chance to manipulate frames and be in close contact with Apis mellifera colonies. Furthermore, students can use the apiary to develop course or final year projects. All colonies inspections are registered using Apiary Book application.

David Williamson aka the Bearded Beekeeper, is a Yorkshire beekeeper, with over 20 colonies.

"What got me into Beekeeping?

I was studying 'Change' and how people in general reacted to it, especially when they perceived that it was enforced upon them.

During a discussion about change with a professor, I was advised that I should research superorganisms, like Ants and Bees, to gain a better understanding of change and how even tiny creatures cope with it, and that like the Ants and Bees people often deal with change on a daily basis without conciously thinking about it.

David Williamson



It was during this reseach that I found out that Honey Bees around the world were in trouble, and many colonies were dying out each year, and that we should be going out of our way to help them by doing whatever we can to increase their survival chances.

I then wondered if there was anything that I could do myself to help this plight of the Honey Bee, so I looked up the local BKA, found out that they often did beekeeping courses, and enrolled upon one.

Soon after I bought a couple of WBC hives and a couple of nucs full of bees, and the rest is as they say history, but that is not quite true, for me it was a new beginning.

So, going back to my original reason for learning about bees, in order "to gain a better understanding of change"; have my honey bees actually taught me anything about change? The answer is yes, humility!

I have observed my bees hard at work in all weathers, and the only time that they are not 'buzzing' around is when it is too cold for them; they are definitely not lazy.

And then there are the facts, like that a colony of honey bees can produce around 60 lbs of honey in one season, and that an individual honey bee only contributes around 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey to that amount in its lifetime, all done without any thought whatsoever for itself, it puts a new meaning into the word insignificant.

So, if one honey bee can do so much just by working with others, then maybe I can do something to help to save the honey bee by working with others, and by doing my bit, no matter how insignificant that bit may seem to be on it's own.

I have grown to love the relaxing nature of beekeeping and of course my Honey Bees; and even when I get stung now and again I know it is because I did something wrong; my bees in general are good natured, hard working honey making wonders, and I am fascinated by them, I am so pleased that I got into beekeeping and provided some of them with homes 'Beehives'."

Introducing Kiril Marinov from Bulgaria, beekeeper since 2005, talking about Bee Queen's Protective Reflex. He believes that this special queen behavior is important to be known by beekeepers because many queen bees are killed meaningless due to ignorance of the phenomenon.

"I have been a beekeeper since 2005. By 2014, I had 150 bee families and I was involved in the production of queens and swarms, semi-professionally, in addition to my main occupation - an automation and mechanics engineer.



In the same 2014, I signed contracts for the production of 300 bee swarms, so I had to produce 300 queens, respectively. I was able to handle this difficult task alone.

During the production process, I encountered a strange behavior of bee queens (6 of them, not all of them).

It is most likely an unconditional reflex (or an instinct acquired over the millennia, to be examined and proved.). I call it the Bee Queen's Protective Reflex

On a nice sunny day, I had to mark another group of queens with the color of the year.
Everything was going fine, but a rather fast and stubborn queen put me in difficulty.

I managed to mark it and released the pressure and, to my surprise, queen stopped moving!

I called a known queen producer to ask him, what is it? Has he encountered such a phenomenon?
He told me - Yes! The queen is dead, just tear her head and throw it away.

But since I was curious as a child, I thought: I will easily tear her head off, but I certainly will not be able to put it back in place! Something was telling me that there was more to come in this event! I decided that it was impossible for the queen to die from the slight pressure.

I carefully placed the queen at the bottom of the hive where the bees surrounded her and started licking her. And the miracle happened. After a few minutes the queen moved. I closed the hive and proceeded to the next marking.



The next day I opened the hive and saw that the queen was laying eggs, as if nothing had happened!

The same year the same incident happened 5 more times with other queens!

I suppose paralysis is intended to mislead the attacker (the bird that caught her during the marriage flight) by pretending to be dead or really fainting like other animals from stress - these are just guesswork. We will certainly get answers to this many other questions in time!"

Assistant - requeen

Beekeeping records of queens are important. Selecting and replacing queen bees and managing bee swarms can help you maintain a successful bee colony. In general, older queens will not lay as well as a young queen.

Using Assistant you can check the age of the queens from an apiary and plan to re-queen hives based on a schedule.


Monday, July 6, 2020

Queen - color code

It is common practice to mark the queen with a small spot of paint on her back (thorax) so that the beekeeper finds it better among other bees and to determine their age.

The color indicate the year the queen was introduced.
  • white – for years that ends in 1 and 6 (ex. 2011, 2016)
  • yellow – for years that ends in 2 and 7 (ex. 2012, 2017)
  • red – for years that ends in 3 and 8 (ex. 2013, 2018)
  • green – for years that ends in 4 and 9 (ex. 2014, 2019)
  • blue – for years that ends in 0 and 5 (ex.2015, 2020)

Beekeeping in Hawaii

Mark Baker is a beekeeper from Hawaii that helped Police and Fire with many Honeybee Emergencies.

He is passionate about honeybees of Hawaii. He is studying the effects of Bees to Hawaii's environment and the varroa mites impact on Hawaii' bees.



Want to know the history of honey bees in Hawaii?

"Aloha,

As a beekeeper and more for 25+ years now here in Hawaii, I have spent years studying the honeybees of Hawaii. Honeybees are a fairly recent addition to Hawaii. It started with the royalty giving the new industry of raising cattle in Hawaii's dry areas. To feed the cattle on board the ships, they fed them pods from the mesquite trees of the mainland's southwest. Once they arrived at their portage, the cattle were tossed overboard to be ferried to shore. This might have been unsettling, since as soon as they reached shore, they pooped out the seeds wherever they landed and this was the beginning of the wild mesquite forests of Hawaii. Here they Mesquite is called Kiawe.

This was 1824. Always that ends way? Right? The Ranchers were to notice soon no pods being produced by their trees. Once they asked, they received their answer: there were no honeybees in Hawaii. Bingo! In 1857 when they then brought honeybees to Hawaii, the pods were heavily produced and their cattle were well fed ever where no rain fell since Kiawe[mesquite] sends it roots down 250 feet to look for subterranean sources of water.

At this time , also, the sail ship brought something that would have impacted the peoples in a bad way if not for the honeybees taking over the jobs that before the sail ships had been done by the native birds of Hawaii. Mosquitoes! This were more than just pests, they fed on the local birds at roost in the trees at night and soon these birds were sickened with TB and many types were lost. The crops of the islanders would have failed from no pollination and people would have starved, but the bees saw the tempting bloomsome and took on the task. Today, a well-cared for hive can produce 20 or more different types of our local honeys. As to production, I myself had 20 hives at a test bee yard producing 1560 pounds of Kiawe Honey yearly, each hive.

By studying these honeybees of Hawaii, I have found many here to fore missed things about honeybees of the world. It has been a wonderful field of study and a sweet reward as well!"
