Natural Beekeeping

Top Bar ApiRevolution has begun! Lets make some inexpensive Top Bar Hives and let them be pesticide free on their own natural comb! Che Guebee is a rebel bee fighting for the survival of the Biodiversity we all depend on and which is seriously endangered by deforestation and mono-crop agriculture! What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?

Nectar is flowing

The nature is booming with blooming :) Bees have lots to do around here!
 Sloe and Cherry is blooming heavily
 Dandelions have just begun
 Maple trees are buzzing loudly from all the Honey Bees and Bumble Bees
 Not sure what this one is but the leaves look a bit like Comfrey
Red Currant blooming and Gooseberries too
 I bought two Fuchsia plants which bees adore
I also bought two Scented Pelargonium which smell of citrus, just like Lemongrass. I wonder if one can use these leaves as a swarm lure ... I have seen a few bees resting on its leaf.


  1. You are definitly at least two weeks ahead from my place.

    1. Skåne is usually 4 weeks earlier than Värmland but this year we had an unusual long winter and very cold too (-18'C) we didnt have such cold long winter in many years.

      Since Värmland winter was as usual we are only 2 weeks ahaid or even 1 week in my locality. We are inbetween Zone 2 and 3 but this year farmers say its more like Zone 4 :)
