    Re: Laying workers?

    Well, I went back in. My impression of yesterday was somewhat wrong. I had visitors in the beeyard when I opened the nuc and did not want to show them an atypical colony, so I just took a peek. Upon...

    A virgin loose in a package is not unusual. Hard to spot, though.

    Re: Laying workers?

    Well, sure. That's why I'm trying to figure it out. What I saw was most of a frame with multiple eggs in every cell. If it were one per cell, I'd have called it a nice pattern. I'll go back and take...

    Re: Laying worker?

    I hear ya, Bill. I'm stumped. If it was a new queen, Where'd all that capped brood come from? I looked for the remnants of a queen cell. If it was a laying worker, where are the drone cells?

    Laying worker?

    I overwintered some nucs (3 high, medium 5fr) and have been putting them into full sized equipment. In one of them there was 6 or 7 frames of capped brood, nice pattern, no drone brood at all. I...
  6. Re: Manipulation of Deep Frames of Brood in Medium Hive?

    Fill the extra room in the deep with solid spacers and add mediums above. When the queen has gone to work in the mediums, put a queen excluder between the boxes. Remove the deeps when any remaining...

    Re: FDA ruling it the works?

    It may get more notice than you think. After all they, unlike us, are unfamiliar with BC's opinions.

    Re: 19" Top Bars? (Best Bar Length?)

    I built a square-sided TBH that a deep frame could hang in. They build comb that fills the entire space. I would say the downside is, that when fully drawn out, the combs are rather massive. Handling...

    Let them build up into med. nuc boxes on top of the deep. Later in the year, when the queen is working in the meds, put a queen excluder between the boxes. After any brood has hatched out in the...

    Re: Stingless bees in the Yucatan

    The honey is in balls or sacs about the size of golf balls. Not really comb as I'm familiar with it. He just tore a little opening in it and sucked the honey out. The pollen, or bee bread, is in...
