Looking for help with your bees or have a bee-related question? Please complete the form below to submit a question to Essex’s senior, most experienced beekeepers. Their response will be posted for all members to learn from. Please provide as much detail as possible. If it is possible to submit photos, please submit those using the form below.
When seeking help with an issue within the hive, please attempt to submit as many photos as possible. An especially useful photo is of the brood nest. In order to achieve this image, please remove a frame or two from the center of the brood nest, shake off most of the bees into the hive, and photograph those frames. If there is a concern that the hive has become diseased, please attempt to get as close as possible to the frame. Members looking to upload photos to share on this site, may also submit photos here.
