It is easy to get your bottom board upside down. The 3/4 inch rim should face up, and the thicker rim should face down. The 2nd photo is of the resulting bur comb due to the violation of bee space if you get it upside down. The 3rd photo shows how to level the hive from side to side. Then turn the level and put the entrance sloping slightly downhill so that any water can drain out of the hive. Same leveling for long hives and top bar hives. They can be level in both directions. ... See MoreSee Less

Happy Beeks! I am hearing from my people here in SW Colorado that their hives are bursting at the seams, and they are thinking about when to split them. Yes, we want to split before the bees decide to swarm, but not too early. Remember that the drones needed to mate the new queens need to be 3 weeks older than she is. When you start to see capped drone cells in your hives, then you can plan to split those super-full ones. There aren't even dandelions here yet. Also remember that your new baby queen needs to be well fed, meaning that there should be a good flow starting as well. ... See MoreSee Less

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.
