    Bottom line is not all people are allergic to honey bees. My father in law is allergic to everything buy the Honey Bee.

    Re: Swarm Question

    Might want to make sure you have a place for the queen to lay in parent hive. May have a full brood chamber with nectar. You have to inspect it before pulling off supers.
  8. Re: One's queenless, the other is getting ready to swarm...what's next?

    What's your end game. If I was looking for more bees this is what I would do.

    If you have actual swarm cells I would take one or two and put in the queenless split.

    Take a your original queen...

    Re: Feeding Question-Need Help

    I assume they are going thru the quart a day for the water. Is that a possible reason. Could you just make some thick syrup that would last a little longer and make them forage for that water?

    You will find this problem from time to time with all manufactures. I have had to cut a few Dadant grooved bottoms to split bottoms to fit the wax straighter. You will buy from Mann Lake again. ...

    Re: Top feeder

    I like these Mann Lake feeders. You have to be careful when filling them to not drown the bees. I fill mine really slow and it allows them to move up as the syrup is coming in. If I filled up to...

    Re: Lots of swarms

    Probably ok. Queen might have not emerged the day after the swarm.. She takes 7 days to really get out to mate I believe. Then she takes a few days to get laying. I would just keep a eye on it. ...
