    Re: Is this the queen?

    I do see capped worker brood in the pic, so there was a fertile queen in there at least 9 days ago.

    Re: Is this the queen?

    That does not look like the queen, a worker putting pollen into a cell (scraping it off of her legs).
  4. Re: First cut-out: some things went well, and others did not

    You all are more than welcome. I just do not think there is a better vac design.
    All of the credit goes to Rob at Bushkill Bee Blog for the creation of it.

    The ones made out of five gallon...
  5. Re: First cut-out: some things went well, and others did not

    Here is what I made. The only upgrade would be to use a propolis trap instead of the no. 8 hardware cloth in the shim. I personally do not use the shim because of rolling he bees that are holding...
  6. Re: First cut-out: some things went well, and others did not

    Put foam weather stripping on the box edges, this will make a good seal and keep them from sliding around.

    Dump the 30' pool hose, use a 2 1/2" shop vac hose in the shortest length possible (you...

    Re: Cut out Question

    On the cut out shim, instead of using number 8 wire (which is flimsy and can fall out of the frame) use a propolis trap, it is more ridgid and thin.

    Re: Cut out Question

    A robo style bee vac is still the way to go. Bees are already in a hive with frames of foundation/comb and there is no shaking or spraying with syrup.

    Re: Cone trap out bees getting back in

    If the customer is having a hard time believing what is in the walls, show them some you tube video of some cut outs. Most times they are just thinking a hand full of bees like a wasper nest and a...

    Re: wild swarm, HELP!!

    Go back and get into the soffit of the house, if it is wood above it then you can cut it out and not worry about a neat repair since the vinyl will cover it up. Without the queen or eggs for the...

    Re: What time of day to start a cut-out?

    I like to get started about 8 or 9 in the morning. Figure about an hour to get everything out and set up, chit chat with owner, and start tearing into the hive. Foragers will be out flying at first...

    Re: Laying worker hive? (with pictures)

    Is this a new queen? Sometimes it takes her several days to figure things out, remember she is also new at this. I have seen an older queen run out of room and do this also. Is there plenty of room...

    Re: Bait Hive Worked! OMG please help

    Since it is dark now, go get the hive and bring it home.
    Don't forget to close the entrance, a rag will work.
    Set them up where you want them, unplug the entrance.
    Put some grass or a branch in...

    Re: What's it doing

  21. Re: What to use if you forgot or can't find your hive tool?

    I use old disc mower blades, plenty of them laying around. Steel is hard and will hold an edge also. I just leave them laying on the tele covers. Can not seem to loose these if i tried.

    Re: Bees entering between brick and siding.

    Most times they set up house right at the siding and then go towards the middle of the house. Best one yet was about eight foot long. Monster of a hive. Also depends on which way the joist run.

    Re: Old Electric Knife overheating

    the numbers are 186 which means it was made Jan. 1986. Just past the numbers towards the pointy end there should be an adjustment screw if it is a "speed king". Pierce is the manufacturer.
