Canadian Beekeeper in Ontario

Here's Johnny Bee Good in a beeyard near Hastings Ontario in August 2011 making ready with his hive tool to remove the queen excluder, which is a metal screen that restricts the queen to the brood chambers below. This keeps eggs out of the honey supers above - you can see the super has been removed and now sits upright beside Johnny.

I can remember harvesting the hay in this field in the 1970s and 80s - we used to walk behind the tractor and wagon and pitch 80 lbs bales onto the wagon…

Black Bears Strike But Are Repelled By Electric Fences In Ontario Beeyards

Some black bears did launch an attack on of our remote beeyards last week! 

This is what bear damage looks like, and it could have been a lot worse. The total loss was only four frames of brood. And that's because this beeyard, like all of our locations in southern Ontario, is protected by a heavy duty solar fencer.
