    Re: Smoker Fuel

  7. Re: Alfalfa- one hive not taking in nectar

    All other things equal I would attribute this to genetics and the specific PER threshold levels for that particular hive.

    Re: If pollen is coming in is nectar too?

    As one who has had bees in, on, and around your area for 35 years you might not want to bet the farm on a star thistle flow this year. It will be a pittance if at all in 2015. Pollen yes.....

    Re: Introducing queen to queenless hive

    I would worry more about your introduction procedure and timing than placement if I was you. Putting queens into hives that have been queenless a while gets trickier as the clock ticks.
