    Re: An ordinary frame of brood...

    The laying pattern of this queen is awesome. My other queens miss quite a few cells and only cover a portion of the frame.

    Re: Honey flow and drawing comb - question

    I use deep boxes for honey supers and brood chambers so I just alternate frames into the honey super from the brood deep and put them back after a couple of days. It works well.

    Re: Kill the queen or give them more brood?

    Re: Frame feeder question

    You could either add another box on top with empty frames and let them draw it out or remove it if you want to stay with a single box. I would suggest putting the two frames in between the drawn ones...

    How do the Blueray buds tolerate the spring frost? The buds swell up quite early.

    Re: What is better -- Bees or Honey?

    I mean nucs and hives you split to sell and overwintering. Honey can be sold any time of the year and won't go bad. Say you split hives and don't get any honey. There is chance that the bees die,...

    I was just curious because we just sort of came out of winter. I guess it is because of the pollen patties in January.

    Is it normal to see drones?

    Well, one hive has at least 50 or more drones in it and most of the other ones have a similar amount. Is this normal at this time of the year?

    pH is really important. Ours was too low and it greatly affected the plant growth. Hope your plants do well this season :)

    Re: giving brood to a new package?

    I wouldn't give the package brood but instead split the larger hive into a nuc. If you don't want more bees, then sell it and get some money for the packages.

    Re: Can I move the Queen to make a split?

    If you have a packed hive and want to prevent swarming and still get honey, then take the queen away with a nuc (3 -4 frames) split and let the colony raise their own. It will take them some time,...

    Re: Who has a Pollen patty recipe

    Then it might be cooked (brown color) You can use pea flour instead, it has more protein.
