    Usually the dose for Benedryl for an adult is 50mg. I don't know on your Benedryl how many ml that is without looking at your box.

    However, you can be stung several times and have no symptoms. If...

    Re: 5 out of 10 DISAPPEARED?!?

    There were 2-3 frames of honey in each box and comb is all drawn out. I don't put screened bottom boards on here until the weather stays nice. We had a snowstorm on May 1 so I usually wait until June.

    Re: first grafting attempt

    They will clean out any larva that were dead. If you squished them when you put them in, the bees probably took care of them.

    Re: unexpected bee death

    Keep us posted on what you find out. That is horrible for the bees.
    As far as dandelions, I think they are pretty! I don't mind them at all but my mother in law sure can't stand them in her yard.
