When bees sense that their queen is gone... (or if the queen is failing or they are getting ready to swarm), they will start feeding royal jelly to a few exclusive eggs to start the process of raising a new queen.. ... ... Only eggs 1-3 days old can be used to make a queen. ... ... The capped queen cells you see here are in the pupa stage. The queens will emerge in about a week. The first one to emerge will kill off the others or they will fight until only one is left. .. .. #queenbee #apiary #honeybees #apismellifera #beehive #beekeeping #backyardbeekeeper #beekeepersofinstagram #pollinators #savethebees #homestead #beehive #honeycomb #workerbees #royaljelly

Queen bee 🐝 in the making!! We split a hive last week because it was packed full of bees. When a colony of bees grows too big and there is little room left in the hive, swarming may soon happen. . . Swarming is when the queen and half of the colony leaves and go in search of a new home. . . A new queen bee will be born in the original hive. .. .. Beekeepers prevent swarming by splitting their hives. 🐝 .. .. #beehive #honeybees #queenbee #savethebees #beekeepers #ilovebees #pollinators #swarming #macrophotography #womenbeekeepers #larvae #queencell #apismellifera #apiary #beesofinstagram #lifecycle #hiveinspection

Ok, this is the last post about milk thistle. So, one thing we learned is that if you don’t want these to grow all over, you need to remove the flower heads before they dry out and literally explode and the seeds fly all over the place.... • • Be careful though because the leaves/thorns are sharp like needles. • • On another note, birds especially American goldfinches love the seeds!!! So leave it for them if you don’t mind having to dig out the tiny seedlings 🌱 from where you don’t want them to grow the following year. • • #milkthistle #thistle #letitgrow #notaweed #wildflower #pollinatorfriendly #beefriendly #wildflowers #honeybees #birds #finches #americangoldfinches #wildlife #biodiversity #seeds #birdwatching

Bees and bumblebees all over milk thistle flowers last year. We were curious and let a flat, green thorny looking plant grow by the side of the shed. In a few short months, it grew to 6-7 feet tall, loaded with bright, purple pinkish flowers that #honeybees and #bumblebeesloved. • • • Had we not let this plant grow, we wouldn’t have looked into what it was and wouldn’t have enjoyed all the wildlife it attracts. Bees also benefit from having another source of food - diverse food sources provide more nutrition. • • What have you let grow? • 🌸 • #milkthistle #thistle #letitgrow #notaweed #wildflower #pollinatorfriendly #beefriendly #wildflowers #honeybees #wildlife #ecosystem #flowers #biodiversity #beehive #foragers #nectar #pollen #plantdiversity #savethebees

Togi standing over a Milk Thistle... unfortunately, this thorny plant right in the middle of the dog yard had to go. We don’t want the dogs to get pricked by it. But, we will leave a few that come up on the side of the property to grow out. •🍃 • Milk thistle has been used for its medicinal properties for a long time, mainly for liver health. The root is also edible. A reason it’s called “milk” thistle is because when the leaves are crushed, a white milky substance is released. • • This is what the plant looks like when it’s young. • • #milkthistle #thistle #letitgrow #notaweed #wildflower #pollinatorfriendly #beefriendly #wildflowers #honeybees #herbalife #herbalremedies #alaskanmalamute #malamutelovers #dogsofinstagram #malamutesofinstagram

2-in-1 Cherry tree flowers 🍒 🌸 .... we planted this over 4 years ago. It’s grafted and should have both sweet and tart cherries. • Haven’t had a single cherry from it yet... but maybe this year?🤞 • We don’t use any chemical sprays, so will need to keep any eye out for pests that eat the leaves and buds. So far so good. • 🌳 #cherrytree #cherries #fruittrees #sweet #tart #pollination #honeybees #growtrees #growfood #flowers #flowerbuds #cherrytreebuds #cherryblossoms #blossoms #permaculture #homesteading #selfsufficiency #organic #nochemicals #nospray #orchard #ediblegarden #growyourown #growyourfood #homegrownfood

We have two apple 🍎 🍏 trees in our little barkyard... they are slower to flower than the peach and pear trees. Here you can see a red flower budding.... it’s going to look great when it blooms. • • Think we might need to prune some branches off though .. “suckers & waterspouts” or branches that crisscross? • Do you trim/prune your trees? Not sure this is the best time to do it... • #appletree #apples #fruittrees #pollination #honeybees #growtrees #growfood #flowers #flowerbuds #appletreebuds #appleblossoms #blossoms #permaculture #homesteading #selfsufficiency #organic #nochemicals #orchard #ediblegarden #growyourown #growyourfood #homegrown #appleorchard

Peach 🍑 tree flowering after a few days of rain 🌧. Been at work during the day so not sure if the bees 🐝 got to them yet. Hopefully, they have pollinated some 🌸 and we’ll get a nice harvest this year! • It’s so pretty when the petals fall off and cover the ground in pink confetti.... • What fruit trees do you grow/want to grow? • #peachtree #peaches #fruittrees #pollination #honeybees #growtrees #growfood #flowers #flowerbuds #peachtreebuds #peachblossoms #blossoms #permaculture #homesteading #selfsufficiency #organic #nochemicals #orchard #ediblegarden #growyourown #growyourfood #homegrown #pink

Early spring flowers such as these snow glories shown here, crocuses, winter aconites, and DANDELIONS are important food sources for honeybees and other pollinators. • 🌸 🐝 Plant a pollinator-friendly garden, be friends with bees, and help the environment. • 🌍 • 😀 #snowglories #dandelions #clovers #blueflowers #springbulbs #flora #springflowers #plantflowers #honeybees #bees #gardening #savethebees #pollen #nectar #lovebees #apismellifera #green #earth #environment #flowers #forage #pollinatorgarden #apiary

Watch this honeybee 🐝 as she flies from one flower to the next, collecting nectar, while carrying a heavy load of pollen .... 🌸 • And ...if you can imagine, I was on all fours following her.... neighbors must be like “what’s going on?!” Haha 😂 Have you done this before? • We planted these beautiful blue snow glories a few years back and they’re spreading out in large patches all over.

Update: the “survivor” queen 👑 we took inside the house for 3 weeks (since 3/24) finally has her royal court! Watch the bees immediately following her! 🐝 amazing! • On 4/15, we installed 2 new bee packages, but SAVED some bees from each to give to 2 queens that overwintered with very, very few bees. The queen here is one of them. • We used a diy push-in cage, so the bees can “get to know” her first. Weather was nice yesterday and with rain in the next few, we went to check. • We know the bees have accepted her, because they moved aside easily when brushed. So, we lifted the cage and she’s free!! 🐝 #beekeeping #savethebees #bees #queenbee #pollinators #beehive #beehives #honeycomb #beekeepers #workerbees #hexagon #colony #ilovebees #beefriendly #savebees #langstrothhive #hiveinspection #queenbee🐝 #plantflowers
