This area is for posting photos of your bees, your hives, your apiary ar anything connected with beekeeping.

Please note the following:


To post photos here, you will first need to have them hosted somewhere on the web. If you have your own web space or blog where they are hosted, all you need to do is to copy the URL (web address) of each photo into the message body area, highlight it and click on the 'Img' button. You can also use picture hosting services, such as Picasa.

When you post an image using the IMG button, the url of the image must end in .jpg or possibly .png - otherwise it will not work.

If you include an address as in the above post, which does not end in .jpg etc, you have to use the URL button instead

Please use the 'Subject' line to enter a title for the photo or series of photos, and please ensure that no individual image exceeds 700 pixels in width.

Don't be afraid to experiment - you can always go back and edit your entry after posting.

In order to make the best use of this area, it would be helpful if you start a new thread for each series, so that pictures do not get buried deep down a long thread of comments.


YOU CAN ALSO DO THIS:

To post a picture:

Go to http://photobucket.com/NBNforum

the password is 'beefriend'

Click the big blue button marked 'Upload Images & Videos'

It will ask you to login. I login with facebook.

On the top middle section, there is an up-arrow and "upload" in a green box. Click on that and upload from your folder.
Select the photo and wait until it uploads(it may take several minutes if it is a large photo).

When it has uploaded, on the photobucket page, copy the IMG thumb and paste that in the body of the message.

OK I am fairly sure they are not going to swarm since they have been doing this for some time , as for overcrowding they had enough room say one bar extra a few days ago, then last night I had a look through the glass trap and not an inch to spare with this lot outside.
This morning I have given them 4 bars and with a little help from me blank sheets of wax 2 each end.
I would like to think that the queen is just laying like mad !

To Sillypotter:

For some reason, this link didn't work. http://hugh.westcreations.eu/post/2012/08/18/Camping
But your regular link did.

Thanks for the compliment.I have been doing this for 41 years so if I don't know now I never will.
Trying to keep bees is much more difficult.

Andy, I think there have been some changes since the Photobucket link was posted (2008), for example when I try via Firefox, I get a access blocked message because a plugin is out of date. Even if I tell Firefox to override it I still can't get in.
Maybe admin needs to have a look for us.
I'll have a go with IExplorer............no that didn't work either.

Hi Phil,

You are probably aware with the recent issues with Photobucket (now AKA photobucks) so the "photo gallery" notes for posting photos may no longer apply.

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here

More about bumblebees and solitary bees here
