photoblog image Oh, Honey Bee

Oh, Honey Bee

On my last visit, this was the scene behind the old wrecked house I photograph from time to time. Some of those white supers may have been mine.  I sold my hives to our local beekeeper about 20 years ago.

I hope they aren't loaded any more...
Mary MacADNski: They would have been emptied of honey filled with food and wrapped for the winter. A big job in fall.
I hope these bees are doing well. The lower photo is really lovely. Thanks for the music, too!
Mary MacADNski: Bees do very well on PEI. We have restrictions on several types of bees and diseases. Some diseases that were always restricted are now in small quantity. I have this cd and love that I could find it on YouTube.

Avec toutes ces ruches, il doit y avoir beaucoup de miel.
Mary MacADNski: Oh yes, it is a big operation. I have shown other beehives and their stories here in the past.

Is there anything for them to graze at this time, Mary?
Mary MacADNski: No the honey is removed in the fall and supers filled with food for the winter. They are then wrapped in groups. The food will last the winter unless very warm weather conditions wake them too early and activate them.

They re so important to the continuation of us humans. I'm sure that once spring comes they will be abundance of food available for them.
Mary MacADNski: Food is definitely abundant in our short season. Bees do well here.

Anything to encourage bees is good
Mary MacADNski: They are numerous and healthy on the island. We have many blueberries and other crops requiring bees so the bee farmers can't grow them fast enough. Bees are a thriving industry here.
Bees are under serious threat around the world
Mary MacADNski: They are doing very well here with restriction on entry of four types of bees and two classes of diseases.

So many nice leading lines!
Mary MacADNski: A quick capture behind the famous deteriorating house structure shown here over the last ten years. There have never been bees here before.

I didn't know you had been (or still are?) a bee-keeper, Mary
Mary MacADNski: Have been but still know what is going on because of family connections to blueberries and bee friends.
