July 2014 - Fear NO Honey Bee

Gentle genetics Honey Bee hive inspection

As this video will demonstrate.  These honey bee’s are very gentle.  My 10 year old daughter and I are doing inspections of the hives.  We are checking the queen’s and making sure they are laying a good pattern.  You will notice we are not wearing the typical jacket, veil or gloves in doing this.  Can you do this with your bee’s?  This makes bee keeping much more enjoyable when you don’t need to wear the extra clothing and you get all hot. We feel the genetics of these bee’s make it great to keep in an urban/suburban environment when you have kids or neighbors near by.  We raise the bee’s using organically manage practice.  Meaning, no toxic chemicals are used on the honey bee’s or their hives (they have enough environmental issues.) These honey bee’s are for sale from us.  We are in central Indiana (Indianapolis, IN) and offer 5 frame nuc, packages and queens for sale.  If you would like more information contact us 1-(317)-660-5355 or email us info@fearnobee.com...

Honey bee’s for sale Indianapolis IN

We are now selling honey bee’s.  Our bee’s are gentle enough that you can work them without a veil or jacket nor gloves, hence (FearNo honey bee).  This is perfect for backyard urban/suburban homes in central Indiana.  We do not put any chemicals on the bee’s and use natural chemical free wax that we harvest ourselves from our own bee’s. We are located in (Indy) Indianapolis, IN  We offer 5 frame Nuc (lang hive) bee’s and queens. All European bees before 1893 were raised in 4.9mm cells. After that year they were artificially enlarged to 5.4mm by A.I. Root and others. This bigger bee size worked for over 93 years, but has now become one of the problems that the bees face today. The thinking at that time was bigger bees, more honey. Studies have shown that the natural cell bees have 22% more cells per frame than the 5.4mm bees.  Our bee’s are the natural 4.9mm size Our breeder stock has proven to be survivors with a natural resistance to the Tracheal and Varroa mite. They must also be top quality brood and honey producers. One of the advantages of having such a variety of large genetic diversity is that studies have shown that they produce 30% more brood comb than a straight line genetic bee.
