Take a video tour of our hives with Anita Deeley!
Watch Anita Deeley of Beverly Bees demonstrate the inner workings of a honey bee hive to Sandra Lawson of Get Your Garden Growing. This video was recorded by BevCam in July 2016. Anita explains how to keep bees healthy, the problems bees are facing today, then dons a bee veil and opens up a hive to show Sandra around.
See what honey looks like in a real live bee hive and determine when it is ready to harvest. Learn why you use smoke and how to smoke bees properly. Watch Anita go through a hive inspection giving tips along the way. View where the bees keep their babies in the hive and the importance of the queen, workers and drones. Review what to do if you get stung. Understand the honey bee life cycle, products of the hive and more! No experience with beekeeping needed. No need for a bee veil or smoker, just sit back, relax and enjoy the video below.
The hive opening starts at 8 minutes in for those who want to dive right into the bees. Also MA beekeepers please note the requirements for opting out of Mosquito Spraying have recently changed. You can now opt out online here.
