Late Season Swarms

I had several large, late season swarms that are uncommon in Ohio.  Two of the colonies did not successfully requeen.  I am uncertain what this late season biology means for the bees and their colony survival.  Any thoughts?



More Autumn Yellowjackets than usual

I don’t sense that they are problem, but there are definitely more yellowjackets attacking my colonies that in past years.  They enter the hive freely and once inside, I can’t tell what is ongoing.  There are few dead ones out front.  When possible, I will photograph the yellowjacket events.


Grandkids and Stings

My 2-year old grand daughter was stung by a Yellowjacket.  At this moment she is napping, but when she awakes she still will not like any stinging insect.  Not much I can say to change her 2-year old mind.
