    Are you sure that you're just feeding your hive and not others as well?

    Re: Bees Hate men?

    I think they're drawn to sweat. They follow me around all the time and don't attack me but they want to land on any bare spot they can find.

    Re: Paw paw mead

    I haven't seen a paw paw tree since I was a kid (and that was a long time ago). I bet most people now-days never heard of them.

    Re: Small Hive Beetles situation in your area

    I've seen very few SHB so far. Keeping my fingers crossed. However, I'm seeing a lot of big black hornets catching honeybees. They usually grab a bee and then land somewhere close (on top of the...

    Re: newbee questions

    It's pretty late in the season to be starting a hive. You're going to have to feed them a lot. Hopefully, there will be some good fall foraging for them where you're located.
  10. Re: What birds or insects have you seen eating bees?

    Interesting conversation about bumblebees. I'm 64 yo and grew up on a farm. I always thought bumblebees gathered nectar like honeybees and weren't predators like wasps and hornets. However, I...

    If they're bad at attempting to rob your hives then you don't have anything to worry about. :lpf:

    Re: Police made me move my hives..

    I'd put an empty beehive in the yard and go out occasionally in my suit with the smoker pretending that I still had bees.

    Pest control

    I had a guy show up at my door from a pest control company wanting me to let him spray my yard for insects. I told him that I had honeybees in my backyard and wasn't about to spray anything around...

    Re: Feral bees and beekeepers bees?

    You might be able to find some semi-feral bees that have swarmed from a local beekeeper but I don't think there are any true feral colonys left. They've all died off....except for the Africanized...

    Re: Vinegar in sugar syrup

    Heat it up enough that the sugar will dissolve but don't boil it. A few drops of vinegar won't hurt the solution but don't go crazy with it.

    Re: 2nd week: Queen cups?

    I got three packages this year and everyone of them requeened. I let them do their thing, they know more about what they're doing than I do.
  22. Re: To Mow or Not to Mow-Near Hive-any opinion on this one

    Aside from ants, roaches and spiders also like to make their homes in beehives. Nothing quite like opening the hive up and having a big roach jump out toward you.

    Re: problem staring a new colony

    How "raw" is the wood you used to build the hive? If it was just cut then perhaps you should let the wood dry out for a while before using it. Maybe they don't like the smell of newly cut wood.
  25. Can you give a new package too much old comb?

    One of my hives died over the winter and left me with lots of left over comb (some brood, some honey, some empty). I froze all the comb after the die off to cleanse it of disease, etc. The new...
