    Re: Bees have left the hive

    The frames are most likely full of honey and sugar syrup, color can be used as an indicator of the two. They are good for something! If you plan on starting again freeze them and reuse them in the...
  8. Re: Mouse invader/what to do with honey?

    Is there evidence that the mouse made it up into the two boxes of full honey? Were the honey supers separated by a queen excluder (in this case might act as a mouse excluder:D)? I don't know if it...
  9. Re: need some advice on a wild hive removal

    Re: building comb Indiana

    Silver dollar capped cells? Wow!! I wonder what that is :scratch: I would not put the 5th box on going into November. There is some r-value in the 4th box with drawn comb, but if the cells are empty,...
  15. Re: Foundationless Comb Management

    No, not that I have experienced, & no. As Vance G. pointed out she will find cells to lay in if/when she wants to lay.

    Re: Propolus 2/3 across entrance

    In my experience, yes they can remove propolis when they need/want to, and yes I would still put the mouse guard on with that much propolis. It's just as amazing what a mouse can eat through.:eek:
