    Re: What's your view on swarms?

    It depends. Swarms may not survive well in the wild due to varroa. And if you are in a populated area its really bad form to cast swarms and then have others have to deal with a colony that has now...

    Re: Neighbors destroying colonies

    As to the "too many in your yard". Most commercial beeks run 20-40 hives in a drop zone.

    If his bees are productive and doing fine....then apparently it's not "too many" in one area. Many zoning...

    Re: The EpiPen and you.

    Re: Police made me move my hives..

    Don't you hate beekeepers who think they are above the law and don't' care to put in the work necessary to get the ordinance changed? I mean really all that education and advocacy...who needs that. ...

    Re: NewBeek started with 2 hives

    Well you could have swapped a frame of good eggs into the bad hive. But you have decided not to do that. Not sure what the point of the post is then.

    Re: Long distance apiary

    My apiary is 30 minutes away. I try to visit weekly during the summer. Every 2 weeks if I miss one. It's hard to keep up with new packages and splits if you don't visit but once a month. More...

    Re: What is this?

    The second pic looks like a queen cup with a larva in it. I dont know why they would build it either, you have to ask them. ;)

    Re: splitting a laying worker hive?

    Why suppress only one frame at a time when you have 10 that need to be treated? You are using squirt gun to put out a brush fire.

    Re: Trying the "snake oil"

    This is why bees are in decline. Every new beek thinks all the old timers "missed something" and they are on to a new discovery. Meanwhile their bees die every year because they don't "treat" or...
