    Re: Thwarting a Swarm

    G, I misunderstood your intent, I guess.
    But relating to the post by Gary, if you leave the queen on the bottom, what keeps all the foragers from going back there and continuing their swarm prep?...

    Re: Fitting plastic foundation to fame size

    I ordered medium frames from Kelly's and they only offer, as best I can tell, deep plastic foundation. I was going to try Laurie's example, but didn't care for the amount of open area left in the...

    Re: Thwarting a Swarm

    If the desire is to maintain a large foraging population, I would try the Snelgrove board.
    It is a board with a screened hole in the middle to allow Q pheromones to circulate, a 3/8-1/2" rim around...

    Re: How to move a hive three feet

    How far total do you plan to move it three feet at a time?
    I saw somewhere a guy painted a long landing board blue with white chevron (arrowheads) leading to the hive. The bees would land on the...

    Re: Bad loses this winter but new hope.

    Re: Bad loses this winter but new hope.

    kenr, to expand on Ace's post, reread the how-to' s on checkerboarding. The manipulation is to the stored frames of honey over the brood chamber. Checkerboarding the brood frames could exceed the...

    Re: Hive Beetles

    I know I'm coming late to the game and perhaps should start a new thread, but I was looking up SHB and read on "bugspray.com" that roach motels were a good lure and bees couldn't/wouldn't access the...
  14. Re: KelleyBee's Phone Support, which to choose to check out my order?

  16. Re: ways to keep bees warm in a tabletop display hive for a 3 day weekend

    I think you need to get your methods worked out ahead of time. Probably a heating pad sandwiched between the hive and foam insulation would be too much. Guys that shelter their hives try to maintain...

    Re: Can a noob take care of 60 hives?

    Something else to consider is whether the hives get built up by the almond bloom. In what month do almonds bloom in Spain?
