so what's the crawdad one?
Mabey this has already been answered
but I'm asking anyway. there is an
insect that is colored like a bee but
looks kinda like a crayfish. anyone
know what I'm talking about?
:D well all mine have been open mated ,and they are still
nice to me.:D though most are still small hives. you can
definately see mixed traits. one hive will have brightly
colored bees right next...
ive seen them poop plenty of times, sometimes
what I thought was an encredible amount for such a
small insect.:D:D:D the things humans do. sit around
and watch a bee poo.:D
Then how do you handle let's say 30-50 queen cells?
what's the process?:D
:D what do you do with all the queen cells? do they get
split up to hatch in individual boxes? I did a split this
year and didn't know what to do with all the queen cells.
I think there were...
I was reading that Russian queens need to be kept
"pure". why is that? Can anyone inlighten me?
I read it in the "treatment free report" on this site.
And how would that be achieved? And it...
so established hives that were overwintered, drawn
frames, prevent swarming, location(which I'm still
cofused about), weather, management, and a little
luck. Well is that all:D
I had one...
my bees started as Russian, the new queens were open
mated. the new queens(that I found) are dark, mabey
a Russian/Carni mix. should be a prety hygenic bee.
also I have seen the bees with deformed...
I was reading in another post that someone was getting
180-200 lbs of honey per hive. how many frames is that
(are they small, medium, large) does it take to accomplish
this? that's alot isn't it?...
and it's August.
what about with the nuc's? I have 3 in 5 frame Boxes,
go ahead and treat them to???
I saw some deformed wings on bees from a couple
different hives. they were walking around unable to fly.
should I treat right away or wait till fall? I have
:D sounds ok to me
I live in northwest Arkansas, and I was wondering when
the main honeyflows start and finish? Aproximately.
Right now were in a dearth I think? But I should expect
to see more honey production...
I usually don't have any kind of reaction to speak of.
But one time I got stung on the temple, it hurt pretty
bad. And one time I had one crawl up my pants and
sting me on the back of the thigh....
I'm not in middle tennessee, nor do I have top bar hives.
hello from north west Arkansas :D:D
if there's removeable frames it's ok I think.
you can use the regular store bought kind cut down to
fit the smaller opening. :D

:applause: house blend. I love it! way better than
mongrel, or mutt!
aren't most bees open mated?
and wouldn't that make most of them
I do like them.
nice and calm, usually.
