USA- HIGH BEEHIVES LOOSES IN MINNESOTA

Tuesday, 31 May 2011 15:33 Written by

Sherburne residents Lash Taylor and Pat Forester have been cultivating hives for their honey for the last nine years. At the end of last year’s season, the couple had 40 functioning hives. Last year the couple harvested about 800 pounds of honey.  Taylor explained that every year domestic bee keepers typically lose between 25 and 30 percent of their hives. “But you don’t expect to lose 97 percent of them,” added Taylor. “In all the years I’ve been doing this, I’ve never seen it this bad before. It’s true it was a hard winter for the bees, but we’ve had weather like this before and it wasn’t nearly this bad,” said Taylor.
