    Re: Wasps,wasps and more wasps..

    Wow. I've never seen them do that. Not sure if you can bee-line them like honey bees. You might try to see if there is a particular direction they head. Also, I am curious as to how far they...
  2. Re: Hive removal from garden. No experience!

    Wonderful! :applause:
    I must say, you all did very well. Patience is very important when extracting bees and placing them in a hive box. If you get more chances like this, you don't have to worry...
  3. Re: Hive removal from garden. No experience!

    Hahahaha. Sounds like a great guy you have. I like the thought process you have about using a frame of eggs from the swarm hive for the cut-out hive to make their own queen; if they need it. She...
  4. Re: Hive removal from garden. No experience!

    If it were me, and I was moving the hive tomorrow night, I would not get into the hive. My experience has shown me that the less intrusion we do, the better the bees will do. I would move the hive...

    Re: November Queen - Yes or No?

    I have contacted a couple of places, and I do realize finding a Queen right now would be difficult. If anyone knows where I could find one quickly, please let me know. Thank you all for your...

    November Queen - Yes or No?

    Finally gave up on a trap-out this year. No Queen came out, but I have several frames of healthy bees. What would be the value of installing a queen in November? Should I, why or why not? What...

    Re: quilt box

    I used clean straw. It works great. Wicks away moisture, breathes, and yet insulates.

    Re: Hive Stands?

    No. I have made them for all my hives, and I have rarely seen a purpose for them. The bees certainly don't use them much, and think about it, any hive I have removed from a tree, a house, or other...

    Re: Wanted to share some of my ironwork

    Allen;
    This is awesome stuff. I love it! Great to see someone doing this kind of craft. I can think of several things I would have you make, if you were closer to Missouri. Great job. :applause:
  12. Re: Hive removal from garden. No experience!

    Great videos. Hope all works well for them in their new home. :)
  13. Re: Hive removal from garden. No experience!

    Bal;
    Thank you for the video. The box is much larger than I thought it was. Did you ever figure out what the box actually was; furniture or something?

    So glad you were able to do this. Please...

    Countless cheers from Missouri USA. :applause: :applause: :applause: You are very far into the addiction of beekeeping now. Too late to turn back, but you'll love every moment; even the heart...
  15. Re: Hive removal from garden. No experience!

    Bal; love the play by play information. Would it be possible to see photos of your progression? Excited for you.
  16. Re: Hive removal from garden. No experience!

    Waiting with anticipation. Hope all goes well.

    I think that is exactly what they are trying to say. I have now inserted the screen cover on the bottom. I have used nothing but screen bottom boards on every hive I have, and this is a...

    Re: Beetle Sucker

    It doesn't say on it what brand it is, but I got it though Amazon. When I Googled "keyboard vacuum", it shows up as being from Miles Kimball, Mini Computer Vacuum, $14.99.

    Beetle Sucker

    I tried something new this fall that worked great. I hate it when there are Small Hive Beetles that escape into the comb cells when they are running from you, so I ordered this little computer...

    Never had this happen before.

    I looked into one of my hives today, and the upper deep had a fair amount of bees. They have been fed steadily for two weeks now, and I expected more stores in the frames, but it wasn't terrible;...

    Re: How do I Move My Hives 170 Miles?

    Bob D;
    There were a couple of guys who, this past Spring, went to get packages of bees to sell. Both of them, different situations, lost many of their packages due to being kept in "closed"...
  24. Re: NEED HELP UNDERSTANDING MY SITUATION PLEASE

    Dave Burrup could have a point. Mites could do a real number on a hive. Just not sure why the Queen isn't laying.
  25. Re: NEED HELP UNDERSTANDING MY SITUATION PLEASE

    Hmmmm

    It could be that she quit laying for some reason, and the life span of many bees ended with no brood to replace them. Not really sure. How was the hive population last month?

    Are you...
