Pretty good stuff! Well done.
Upload the photos to a hosting site like Photobucket. It's free. Then copy the link to Beesource either as a link or the actual image. Make sure you resize the image so it's not too big to load here.
They work well if you need to set empty supers down on a solid surface with a pretty good seal to keep critters out. If you get some weight on them they'll deform a bit and form a nice barrier. At...
You can't leave him hanging Roland. :)
Now you have to describe what you do during the inspection.
You disrupt the colony when you pull frames out for inspections. The less you disrupt them, the more opportunity they have to do the things they need to do. On the other hand, you need to know what's...
Part of the reason that particular forum is moderated is to keep it on track and to keep folks from inadvertently getting into someone else's business. Trust me, you'll appreciate not having to deal...
It took 1,262 posts, but we finally arrived. :)
I guess I've had bees for around 15 years. I usually wear a hooded jacket and gloves if I'm going to open a hive and manipulate frames. If I'm hiving a swarm I sometimes go without either, but once...
From "The Beekeeper's Handbook":
I'm terrible at it, however. I've been on since 2009 and have tweeted 12 times. I'm afraid I just don't quite get it.
It looks like they're using a standard Langstroth hive with wired frames but no foundation. Kind of a hybrid Kenyan top bar/Lang cross.
They'll utilize the space as they need it. I would just keep putting on supers. Later you can evaluate which configuration seems to work the best in your particular location. I always leave plenty of...
I wish I had a nickle for every man and woman in America who was told "It'll never work..." and went on to be successful.
Here's a news report of what African scientists are working on.
My apologies to those offended.
It doesn't look like it was a nuc, more a nucage. But it looks like they are doing very well. I would just leave them alone, monitor mites, and give them another box when they need it.
Thanks for that. Now I'm curious about who brought the first bees and when.
Did the Spanish explorers who came into the American Southwest bring bees? We associate other domestic livestock with them, such as sheep and horses, but I don't recall hearing anything about bees.
It's at the bottom of the first page of the forum, one page before you get to this page where the posts are.

There are some threads in this forum that won't show up unless you drop down to the "Thread Display Options" and click on "Show Threads From" and select "Beginning". This forum should be a nice...
We need more information. One hive? In an enclosed vehicle, trailer, bed of pickup? Are you driving at night or during the day? How big is the hive; single deep, double deep, etc,?
That would be interesting.
Here's his Facebook page with a little more...
You can see how thick that glass is in some of the photos. Very...
