I'm using this trick more for the birds than the bees right now, but this spring, when we have cool night and warm days, it will be a big help to your bees. In the morning, clean the ash out of your wood stove and place in a metal bucket out in your yard (10 ft from anything flammable). Place a heavy pizza pan on top of the bucket, and fill with warm water. It will stay warm, or at least not frozen, all day. ... See MoreSee Less

Spring is the most dangerous time of year for bees, starvation is lurking around the corner. Check your bees! If you are feeding dry sugar on top of the frames, make sure it is damp enough. Bees can't use dry sugar, and this winter has been so dry, my sugar is staying dry, too. Spritz with water on a warm day, be quick! ... See MoreSee Less

It is getting a little late to be oxalic acid vaporizing your hive for mite control since the bees have a good bit of brood going already. Better late than never, though, if your bees had a count of 9 or more mites per 300 bees last October (might want to do it if there was a count of 3 or more in Sept or earlier). Check with your regional bee club if you need to borrow a vaporizer, they may have one to lend. If your bees had a higher count than these, check to see if they are even alive still.

About CSBA

The state association was organized in Denver in 1880 by J.L. Peabody, E. Milleson and Olive Wright. It was incorporated as the Colorado State Beekeepers’ Association in 1888 and is affiliated with the American Beekeeping Federation. The CSBA is the oldest and most widely recognized beekeeping organization in Colorado.

The CSBA functions as an umbrella organization for all other regional beekeeping organizations and clubs in the State. In addition, the CSBA is also the only organization in Colorado that represents the concerns and interests of the commercial beekeeping sector.

The CSBA functions as the main interface between State and local agencies and beekeepers.

All dues and monies collected by the CSBA go towards educational and associated social functions at meetings. The high level of cutting-edge information available at CSBA meetings often provides one of the only opportunities for local beekeepers to learn about events and concerns within the larger beekeeping community.
