Should I stand in the back of the TBH when opening and working within? I have a typical backyard beekeeper tbh. front has 3 holes.
I am in awe of those who don't have on gloves and don't wear gear when working within a hive.... is it because their bees are so used to them? Or is it calmness? I try to move smoothly... I'm just not smooth when I'm dressed up and have bunch of bees flying around me.
Read that too much ventilation is bad. temps in my area range from mid 40s to 70s. I have a bottom board which can be dropped down 3 inches. under is a wire mesh. Is this too much ventilation? When should I move it down?
when to stop feeding them sugar water? Capped brood? Capped honey. Honestly have to research and figure out how to tell the difference.
So many questions... so little time
ps. read a while back that bees and chickens don't do well together - fallacy - mine coexist very well and basically leave each other alone. Wonder where that came from.
