Bees in late summer

At the moment the bees are already being prepared for the winter season. They have to be treated against the Varroa mite. This mite is a parasite that sits on the bee, sucks the tissue of honey bees and thereby transmits other diseases. Because the honey bees cannot adequately defend against the mites, the beekeeper has to help.

There are less bees in the beehive and they are now changing from summer to winter bee slowly. Winter bees live longer and do not have to do take strenuous trips in wintertime.

And now the extracted honey is filled into glasses!
