The pollen is stuffed into hairy receptacles on their hind legs called corbiculae. A single bee can carry about half her own body weight in pollen. Once back at the hive, the workers stuff the pollen into an awaiting cell.
Some of our hives located in a wildflower field in eastern PEI
During pollination bee hives are placed in blueberry fields
If a hive gets too crowded the queen will leave with about 60% of her workers to find a new home. The remaining workers will raise a new queen.
Here you can see bees applying a thin cover of wax to cured honey.
One of our beekeepers shows a frame full of capped honey. Bees "cap" (seal) the honey until they are ready to use it.
Bee's will often build comb on top of the frames. When the lid of the hive is removed the wax separates revealing the honey.
