    Re: Noise from the hive entrance

    They are from a package so are still building up. Just don't look blocked at all and opening up further would be more room for non bees to come in. I could be way wrong so feel free to offer what you...

    Noise from the hive entrance

    Yesterday afternoon while watching both hives I heard an odd sound from one. The sound of an insect chewing wood is what it reminded me of. There were bees 'walking the line' along the entrance...

    Everything in beekeeping is controversial it seems : ) Thanks for the input. The SHB issue was the other reason. I saw it somewhere on this forum and it made sense. I think I'll leave it off this...
