    Re: Failed experiment

    By removing the excluder you make it more receptive for comb development(IMHO). To my knowledge, bees won't relocate wax like you are talking about. Just remove this wax to prevent additional burr...

    Re: June honey comb and wax moths

    It is always a good idea to freeze your combs for 24 hours before packaging. I ask you, what can it hurt to do the freezing first?

    Re: Second swarm caught last night

    They are left over scout bees and others that were in the air. If you don't collect them, then eventually they will return to the hive they swarmed from. A queen excluder is a safe bet to keep the...

    Re: will they survive?

    Yes, most likely. But do this. Put some(1 lb or 2) dry granulated sugar on a cardboard square(or similar) for them to eat. Make sure a clean source of water is nearby.
  18. Re: Would you all recommend an inside cut-out or outside trap-out?

    I do a lot like this one! Use a door-knob hole saw/bit for your drill, and go through the soffit to get a confirmed visual of NO bees there. Sound can travel many ways inside walls. Check the soffit...

    Re: Which veil type is preferred?
