Hive Inspectionsby Ruhl Bee on 03/19/13
For a new beekeeper, inspecting a hive can be daunting and sometimes detrimental to the hive. To help you through these inspections, we have just introduced a new field guide, called Hive Inspections Basics for Northwest Beekeepers. It breaks inspections into three levels: external observations, hive top inspections, and frame inspections. We thnk this will be a useful tool for beekeepers just starting this year and for those who feel a bit lost when doing a hive inspection.
