Summary

Credit: Bill Crim

This is part 2 of a podcast that was made from a YouTube live broadcast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8zlsjGmi68

Modern bee keepers will keep all of the queens that are hatched. Bad keepers will also sell queens from colonies that have hybridized with Africanized honey bees. They will also take all of the honey away from the bees, and feed them sugar water instead.

There are several ways to keep bees strong. Let the bees eat more of their own honey. Plant lots of polyculture forage close to the hives. Keep hives 100 feet apart and off the ground. Let the bees control their own environment by reducing the amount of hive opening.
