I am a first year beekeeper in northeast Ohio, Ashtabula County. I have a small maple syrup operation and will have 500 or so taps this next season. I have been interested in keeping bees for many years now. I purchased one established two deep hive from an oldtimer who is selling out. I made a successful split in late April and need to split again soon. I have Carniolans. There is also a feral hive on my property (28 acres) that has been there for a couple of years. Still not sure what I will do for mite treatments in the fall, or what type of wintering method I will use.

Welcome to the forum,Heus.  You can find lots of threads here that may help you decide which way you want to go on that.  Being a new beek you may want to check if there is a local bee club.  Good luck with your bees.

Diogenes,
Do you have a flow still going on? Some of my goldenrod is ready to bloom within the next couple of weeks which is amazing to me.

Welcome to Beemaster. Why are you going to treat your hives? Is there a problem?

Just going to do the powder sugar shake. If I get a significant mite drop I may treat with Hopguard. Not sure.

Dry, dry, dry.

They're getting something. Not close, and not much though. Hives seem empty mid-day. There's always some robbers sniffing all the cracks right now.

Teasel is blooming and bumble-bees are all over it. Bees (and bumble-bees) are working the catnip all day long (lots around here). Thistle is blooming, but is short and scraggly (technical term) this year and I haven't looked closely in the AM to see if they are working the thistle. Huban clover runs-out in morning, and there isn't much vetch close by.

Always lots of girls on the gravel beach at the local watering hole lately. It is summer-time!
