    Curious Question

    I was just wondering:

    How far north will honey bees live in North America, and what elevations will they tolerate? I've looked for this all over the net and got nothing.

    Half my observation hive. Looked everywhere, nary a gathered swarm. Is it possible they could have found a new home in a matter of hours?

  7. Re: 2 hives with no queen; can i i merge the two?

    Thanks everyone for your input. Hive maintenance on an ob hive took about 2 hours to do. Ob hive now now has 3 queen cells in it.

    Re: what NOT to do when you get stung

    Getting stung is part of the game in this business. When I get stung it's not the pain, but the itchiness the next day that lasts a few days.
