    Re: Double Nucs, has anyone tried....

    "They" say that the workers and queen cohabitate peacefully in a two queen system with the queens separated by an excluder. I don't know.

    Re: Double Nucs, has anyone tried....

    Almost exactly what I put together. I was wondering about allowing the bees to pass through the masonite dividers with section of queen excluder inserted. I was afraid that the cluster might drift...

    I don't think the divider allows the bees to pass through.

    Double Nucs, has anyone tried....

    I've seen on Micheal Palmer's videos where he makes a double nuc box with an eight frame deep and a solid divider down the middle. Additional frames are added to the top with single four frame boxes....

    Re: when to set out swarm trap (ohio)

    I had the same question, so I looked in the 'post your swarm dates' thread. It goes back to 5/07. As Mike said, it looks like things get going in early May, generally. If someone had the time, it...

    Re: Weak hive...new what?

    OK, it's done. Eggs to the weak hive. Locations swapped. Hope this advise wasn't an April fools joke! I'll let you know how it works.

    (Sqkcrk too)

    Hey, I like your thinking. I never thought of swapping hive positions. Don't think it'll hurt the strong too much?

    Re: Weak hive...new what?

    Two ten frames deeps. 90% drawn. The queen was never great and should have pinched her last fall. Still some honey left. I think there are enough bees to get it going. Most bees are in the top. I...

    Well now, that's a bummer. I've got a package and some queens coming in a month. Way too late, I'm sure. Thanks for the advice!

    Weak hive...new what?

    Nice warm day to check colonies today. One hive doing great. Lots of pollen coming in and lots of bees with capped brood. The second hive has very little activity. Nobody's bringing in pollen or...

    Re: Paint can feeders....

    I heard Michael say in a video that he put "five holes" in the lid. It seemed far too few so I thought I'd misheard. Guess I heard right after all! Thanks.

    How many holes are you putting in the lid?
  15. Re: Bees and elephants and humans - just for general interest

    Cool stuff! I love Elephants, they are so intelligent.

    But to apply the story, the chances of my hives being destroyed by elephants is very small because they avoid bees. What do I do to keep the...

    Oh, That's right...thanks for reminding me about M. Palmer. I did watch a video of him speaking in England a few months back. Now that we're coming into the thick of it I'll have to revisit!

    Rob, My problem isn't the diameter of the shaft, it's 5/8". The length won't accommodate the additional stack. Also, although it's a 10" saw, it's not rated for the 8" dado. It's says to use the 6"...
