HOW TO USE THE ON THE SPOT (OTS) METHOD TO HAVE A SELF-SUSTAINABLE APIARY
As the season progresses, bees begin to grow exponentially with the flow of nectar and pollen. For newer beekeepers, inspecting your bees once they have multiplied in size can be intimidating for a newer beekeeper. Learn how to inspect your colonies mid season, how to prevent swarming, when do you feed your bees and the necessities of understanding your queen and how to find her.
