Beekeeping Statistics

  • This chart is updated every time I do an inspection.
  • I look at colonies approximately every 2 weeks, though this may just be lifting the lid to see if an extra super needs adding
  • Only frames of capped brood are counted. If I see 2.5 frames then I round down and just say 2.
  • These are aggregate numbers which include nucs, 2-6 frame mating nucs so the full sized colonies will far exceed these numbers. For example in Apr 2020 the average of capped brood frames is 2.37, yet the largest colonies I have are on 7 fully capped frames
