    Kelley Foundationless Frames

    I recently ordered some shallow foundationless "F" frames from Kelley and they came in last week. I've assembled maybe 50 or so of them.

    The frames are well-made though the wood is quite soft....
  5. Re: Kelley- anyone else having customer service problems?

    My packages arrived late on Friday, the 5th. I wish Kelley had better communication. If they would add a tracking number immediately to the online record of your transaction, that would be a big...
  6. Re: Kelley- anyone else having customer service problems?

    I was beginning to wonder if they are even in business. I placed an order for foundationless frames on the morning of 1 Jun and received a computerized acknowledgement but have received no indication...

    Wiring Foundationless Deep Frames

    I use two strands of wire on my medium frames, using all the available holes. However, my deep frames have 4 holes on each endbar. In the past, I've used up all of those holes, as well. However, I am...

    Re: Frame wiring

    I run foundationless, so my wiring is more to help the comb hold up during extraction, rather than keeping the foundation flat. So far, I've been using all the holes in the end bars. But now I am...

    Re: bees became mean

    They're likely being harassed. In addition to the critters already mentioned, check for ants. You could try moving the hive to another apiary to see if that makes a difference. -james wagner

    Re: Bees have made a home in my house

    I agree with the other responses. Please post your location. If I were to do the job, it would not cost a few hundred, but nowhere near a thousand.....UNLESS you poisoned them first. You should be...

    Re: Hive tool at Walmart

    I used just such a tool for several years before I got anything different. It cost me $2 at Fred's and is still my favorite all-around hive tool. -james

    Re: First call to swarm

    If they are IN the structure, it is no longer a swarm. Thus, you are looking at a cut-out situation, not a swarm retrieval. Go to youtube and look up "Jpthebeeman". Otherwise, defer to someone with...

    Don't be too quick in blaming the queen for aggressive behavior. I've found that some environmental factor is to blame. I would recommend going all the way through the hive and see if anything has...

    Re: My Dilemma, any help (advice)

    I think I would create an artificial "swarm" by moving the queen and about half the bees to another location. Then, I would kill the lackluster queen and give those bees one of the queen cells from...
