    Re: Which Battery should I buy for a Varrox....

    I am not familiar with these, but I assume there are a variety of settings for the power output. What setting should be used?

    Re: Slatted Rack Entry and Exit Route?

    I have slatted rack and the bees have had no problems getting up into the hive. They climb the outside walls or lift themselves up by flying.

    Re: Thousands of bees, not an ounce of honey

    If you have a digital kitchen (meat) thermometer, that's all you need, and a bit of confidence. Of course neither the candyboard nor the fondant is helpful if the colony fails mid winter. Now's the...

    A search for candyboard will get recipes and instructions to make your own. This should be considered insurance in the event the bees go through all the 60+# of honey you have left on the hive for...

    I am seeing the same here in SW NH. Also, very low to no pollen stored. We are just now coming out of a nectar dearth, the early goldenrod is now blooming and bees are bringing in pollen again....

    Re: DWV is it to late

    In addition to the nuc I would hunt up the current queen and remove her from the infested hive and give a brood break to the colony. If there's no brood there is no place for the varroa to hide.

    Spencer, unless your bees have a truly fantastic first season, you'll get a taste or two. In our neck of the woods the first year honey is for the bees to eat for 7 long months of winter... You will...
