    Re: NEED ADVICE! Bad reaction to sting!

    Yeah I had an epi-pen prescribed today, but the risk seems scary still. : / I'm definitely noticing more of a reaction with each sting.

    I'm just looking for some second opinions, so thank you...

    NEED ADVICE! Bad reaction to sting!

    Okay, so I checked my hive today and got stung on my ankle and on my thigh four times (yes, I had a suit on). I always react with a lot of swelling and redness as much as 6 inches from bee sting, but...
  3. Re: Some survivors among a lot of dead - condense hive?

    I just checked my hive today as well since it was high 60s. :)) The cluster is extremely tiny and tons of dead bees, but I did see the queen moving around and no eggs or brood. Now, I did see a...
  4. Re: HELP. Installed package, I have a dead queen. What to do.

    When I didn't have a queen, my bees made a little comb. They could cover it all though, so it was hard to see. My grandpas hive had a ton of comb compared to mine, so I knew something was up. Good...

    No problem! I've been there... :)
  6. Re: HELP. Installed package, I have a dead queen. What to do.

    Last summer, my first beehive ever, I had a queen cage that was open. The screen was no stapled good and completely lifted back, so I figured she may had been in the hive somewhere. I watched my hive...

    Re: dead hive questions

    My bees didn't make it either. I checked them yesterday and no movement at all. I'm so bummed, but have more coming, so hopefully this year will be so much better!! Good luck this spring!

    Re: Bees Not Clustered in PA

    I am waiting for a day where I can put fondant or hard candy in. I'm wondering if they are low on honey. I thinks it's going to be hard to put it in there since they seem so active in the hive??

    Re: Many dead bees on floor

    It has definitely been very cold. I just thought I would be able to at least see the bottom, but I can't whatsoever. I do have a top bar. I wish they would cluster more so that I can tell if they...

    I too was stung this summer right between my eyes! I swelled up real nice and looked like a Star Trek or Avatar character. I have never been so embarrassed to go somewhere, but I went to work. I work...
  18. Re: Requeen or let them try to resolve matters

    I agree! I have been in a panic many times this summer LOL. Mine seem to be doing great. I was confused when I saw no brood because I did not see any swarm cells or anything. I hope yours turn out...
  19. Re: Requeen or let them try to resolve matters

    I checked my hive again.. Full of brood and larvae. I don't know what her deal was... Maybe she was tired and just needed a break lol.

  21. Re: Requeen or let them try to resolve matters

    I am in Michigan and checked my hive a few days ago. I have some capped brood, but no eggs or larvae. I did not find any signs of queen cells. This is my first year as a beek, so I'm not entirely...
