    Re: Brood in honey uppers

    You just lift them up and put a prop of some kind in.

    Re: Neighbors destroying colonies

    This just makes my blood boil.

    That said, this is a thread that can easily derail, and understandably so. Please keep in mind that suggestions of retaliation or any kind of illegal activity are...

    Re: WHY! WHY! WHY!

    Beesource is a pretty pricey endeavor. The ads help defray the costs.

    Re: one more time

    Upload the photos to a hosting site like Photobucket. It's free. Then copy the link to Beesource either as a link or the actual image. Make sure you resize the image so it's not too big to load here.

    Re: Political signs...

    They work well if you need to set empty supers down on a solid surface with a pretty good seal to keep critters out. If you get some weight on them they'll deform a bit and form a nice barrier. At...

    Re: When do we check the hives???????

    You disrupt the colony when you pull frames out for inspections. The less you disrupt them, the more opportunity they have to do the things they need to do. On the other hand, you need to know what's...

    Re: Why moderator approval?

    Part of the reason that particular forum is moderated is to keep it on track and to keep folks from inadvertently getting into someone else's business. Trust me, you'll appreciate not having to deal...

  12. Re: When do you guys feel comfortable not to wear protection?

    I guess I've had bees for around 15 years. I usually wear a hooded jacket and gloves if I'm going to open a hive and manipulate frames. If I'm hiving a swarm I sometimes go without either, but once...

    Re: Who is on Twitter?

    @Barrydigman
    I'm terrible at it, however. I've been on since 2009 and have tweeted 12 times. I'm afraid I just don't quite get it.

    Re: Short news report of bees in Africa

    It looks like they're using a standard Langstroth hive with wired frames but no foundation. Kind of a hybrid Kenyan top bar/Lang cross.

    They'll utilize the space as they need it. I would just keep putting on supers. Later you can evaluate which configuration seems to work the best in your particular location. I always leave plenty of...

  20. Re: Hive inspection! Please come on in and offer advice if you got it. (photo heavy)

    It doesn't look like it was a nuc, more a nucage. But it looks like they are doing very well. I would just leave them alone, monitor mites, and give them another box when they need it.

    Bees in the Southwest

    Did the Spanish explorers who came into the American Southwest bring bees? We associate other domestic livestock with them, such as sheep and horses, but I don't recall hearing anything about bees.
