    Re: Top Bar Nuc

    I'm confused (almost sounds too easy). The queen isn't caged, it's in a fairly advanced overwintered Nuc (approx 8 frames of comb/brood) If I move all to the left away from the entrance and leave...

    Re: Top Bar Nuc

    not sure what the patbeek cage wire method is. Yes, they are shallower, since both bottom boards are 8". I'm sure the ruthiesbees method is right, just way to messy for me to have confidence that I...

    Re: First Winter Survival?

    My hive still seems extremely weak. There are maybe 1 or 2 bees going in or out per minute. On a normal hive I would think I should have reckoned, but what to do in a Warre?

    Package woes continue

    I inspected my package-install-hive yesterday. Tons of drone brood. Looks like they've superseded (empty superseder cell). I wasn't able to spot the queen, but that's not unusual for me. I'm thinking...

    First Winter Survival?

    It appears as though my Warre made it through the winter for the first time in 3 tries. We had weather in the upper 60's the last 2 days, and there was slow activity in and out of the hive. I put a...
