9781330172506: Southern Bee Culture (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Southern Bee Culture

I had to brace it with two sticks to keep it from tumbling over. I made some crude movable-frame hives (for I had not yet seen a patent movable; frame hive). With this outfit I began bee - keeping anew, studying them by handling them on their combs. My bee business began to grow; and after keeping bees thus for several years I heard of a bee-keeper who had bought some patent factory made hives. I paid him a visit at once, and I saw that the hives were just what I needed, so I bought a lot of them Next season I transferred my bees into them. From the old crude hives I transfered bees and what I had on hand extra, furnished me fuel during the summer and following winter.

From the old decayed box hive my bee business has spread until bee keeping is my business or sole occupation. Besides establishing five apiaries of my own around in this section (as many bees as I can give proper atten tion to), I have furnished foundation stock from which many apiaries have been established in various sections of the South from the old mother hives.

The ups and downs I had during this time, I have not space to describe in this small volume.

If there is such a thing as a man being called to do certain work, I have been called to the field of bee culture, for I feel out of my calling at any thing else. Although I have mastered no little at eight other occupations, yet I feel more as if I am at my allotted work when I am among my bees than I do at any other of my trades.

I have applied myself to bee-keeping in almost every conceivable man ner, keeping colonies of bees in glass hives in my bedroom and on my ver anda, keeping close and constant watch on them by day and by night. I have operated bees successfully and extensively for extracted chunk and comb honey m sections; I have traveled to and fro across the South, investi gating bee-keeping and the honey-plants in many sections; and if I did not know that there is a great future for the bee and honey industry here I would not attempt to write this book. While methods' of apiary work and bee-keeping differ m sections and locations, I hope to give you at least some practical thoughts along bee-keeping in your own location.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 162 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.Excerpt from Southern Bee CultureMy memory begins with standing in front of a colony of bees, with a brush-broom in hand; and until I was large enough to take interest in the apiary work, whenever I saw a colony of bees they commanded my attention, and my gratification was not appeased until I had seen the owner and questioned him (or her) concerning the bees; and many times I have been rebuked for continual questioning. At that time we were traveling in an oxwagon over Texas, where I saw much of the bee and honey industry, and my interest in the honey-bee grew deeper, and it is needless to say that driving a sleigh around over the wood while the bee-hunters were finding bee-trees, and cutting them, was the joy of my boyhood days. Whenever bees were robbed in the settlement I was always on hand, ready to take part. I soon became a bee-hunter myself, and all spare moments were spent at this; and many times I have looked up trees on Saturday evenings (for it was a bout all the leisure time I had) so constantly that I would have a crick in my neck and all the following week. Many times I have cut and robbed rich bee-trees, and no one with me to share the pleasure. Besides looking after bees for others we established an old-style box-hive apiary (for it was the best we could do then, for there was no better hive known to us. I took a leading interest in this apiary, and a few times we had a good apiary established. Then they would die back to only a few colonies, and I did all I could to save them. Finally one spring we had only one hive left, and later in the spring I turned it bottom end up and found it a mass of moth. I went down in the pine thicket and sat down beside a tree and took a long cry over the death of the last colony, and then and there I resolved that, if I ever had another start of bees, I would give them even more and better attention. Then I tried to buy another start of bees, but failed. I found many bee-trees, but failed in saving the bees; so for several years we had no bees, and farm life was not what it once was to me; for when we had the apiary I would spend my leisure moments at noon under the shady mulberry-trees where it was located, doing all I knew how to help the bees, and I would watch the little streams of them as they would pour in and out of the hives, and listen at night to their heavy roar. But now this inspiration was a thing of the past, and farm life had lost its greatest charm to me. Several years elapsed, and I looked after bees only for others. Finally a widow lady gave me a colony for giving her bees such good attention. One cold winter night I carried the hive of bees home.
