    Re: Just when I thought things were looking up.

    If you had a queen on the 8th, her last round of brood will emerge around the 29th. Might have killed on the 8th, timing fits in where cells would be hatching about now.

    Doing good in your judgement means squat to the bees, but it's ok, you will learn this eventually. You can nuc her and try to save her, but from my experience she will get superceded again or...

    Re: Bee Behavior

    Don't hang around large orientation flights, you will get harassed or nailed. I chalk it up to young bees in the air, they don't really know what's going on and seem to get agitated easier when...

    Re: re-queening every year !

    Some of my best queens are 3+ years old, brooded up faster than overwintered nucs and just keep on ripping. A good queen is a good queen.

    Re: DEAD NUCS????

    Strong or weak, most colonies just don't die off this quickly without a good reason in non-freezing weather.

    Re: Swarm cell found, now how to prevent swarming?

    10 days is too early for a laying queen. I wait at least two weeks post emergence to even thing about checking for eggs, give it another week, I bet you'll be surprised.

    Re: Small Cell Question

    If they're building their own, it's natural cell, I think small cell is a relative term when talking re tenths of millimeters.

    Re: Whats should I be expecting

    It depends how lucky I am.... if she's on the first frame I pull, less than 30 seconds... but if she's on the last frame, could be 20 minutes on a big hive and if she's moved into the super, that's...
  23. Re: Nectar in every frame, everywhere but the supers!

    Swap frames from some of the mediums that are being drawn in the other hives, 1 or 2 should get them to move up and start working.

    Re: Fantastic phone call

    Just don't shrink wrap the bottom entrance, just block it in with screen and do the same with some of the other holes in the hive, don't block but screen off, should be fine for a short ride home.
