    Re: Effectiveness of Vita EFB Test Kit?

    EFB and AFB are so different there should be no reason to do both on the same hive. Unless you think it has both.

    Post some pictures of the brood and I will tell if he even needs to get the test.

    Re: Best Feeding Choice.

    I would keep the honey for you and feed syrup. Mixing mediums and deeps may not let the winter cluster move around the hive like they want.

    Re: bees dragging out pupa. why?

    Larva does look like a drone and the eyes are dark so it was capped, I don't know if they will uncap drones to evict them or wait.

    Re: Help with identification please

    Looks good, nice healthy brood pattern.

    The darker cells are brood that hatched from new white comb. The close up looks a little like they started to backfill with nectar and pollen.
