We’ve all been reading stories in the
news about honey bee populations
dying out. Has this been affecting
YOUR bees at all?
Sorry for the delay in reply. With new sites come new problems
including checking emails. To answer your question, Yes, I lost about
half of my 600 colonies this winter to suspected “CCD”, which stands
for Colony Colapse Disorder. It is a very bizarre thing that really no
one has figured out yet. My normal winter losses are between 5 and
15%. 50% percent is very devistating. I personally don’t believe that
it is cell phones, or something we are doing to the bees directly. I
believe that is a combination of factors along with a new fungus,mold,
or perhaps a virus. The bees that are left seem to be doing well and I
just split the good ones last week and will check them again soon.
Thanks for question.
