We purchase rough sawn pine products from the Kuykendall's in Tres Piedras, NM (30 miles west of Taos) to mill into our bee products.  Here we are loading on March 3rd 12" pine lumber.  We will place it in a solar kiln in Edgewood and add fans and heaters to speed up the drying process before we can begin to mill this lumber into supers, frames, tops and bottoms and other hive components.  Lanny and his family can be reached at 9 Rodeo Road, Tres Piedras NM    575-751-0901

Feeding and Adding Supers for Expansion of the Brood Nest (Chamber)

What is one way to effectively expand the brood nest?  This video shows how to add frames in a manner that will encourage the hive to quickly expand the brood nest.  We are also encouraging the hive to increase in numbers in advance of a nectar flow.

Swarm Prevention,

While working hives at one of our apiaries we noticed a hive where the bees began to cluster on the front of the hive.  What was the reason?  Preparation for swarming, over crowding or over heating?  We take a look into this hive and correct the problems.
