Hello and happy Easter to all, i currently have been doing much research on beekeeping but there is only so much you can learn from outside sources like videos from Cedar and the Flow hive companies. So my questions at this time would “bee” haha.
- In Arkansas we all know the temperatures very wildly, it was 90 degrees last Wednesday and then 2 days later it was 50 degrees, i know that certain bees can handle temperatures better than others and I’m curious as to what type of bees would be good to use here in Arkansas
- It is springtime here and flowers will be in bloom soon, if i am surrounded by forest do i need to create my own Flower bed for pollination and food foraging or do i just let the bees do the natural thing and go into the forest to look for food? there aren’t exactly many “flowers” around but plenty of greenery.
- final question for now, about feeding, other than plants and flowers do the bees need some source of food like syrup or anything?
I will also be using a cedar 7 flow hive and i am curious if anyone has any experience or pointers on those hives, again i have no beekeeping experience and need all the help i can get, thanks to anyone who responds, i will appreciate your help and getting to discuss things with you. God Bless.
