    Re: Bees making an entrance

    Thanks for the tip. If they don't propolize it, I'll duct tape it.

    Re: Bees making an entrance

    I'm sure they will, or hope they will. It's on the northwest side. That is very cool. They are certainly fascinating.

    Re: Bees making an entrance

    Yes I do have an upper entrance. I thought that might be what's going on, so I slid out the bottom board a bit to hopefully help. It's been cool and rainy, so I had closed it up. Thanks for the...

    Bees making an entrance

    I haven't seen this before and couldn't find anything that went with my situation in the fourms. I went out to the hives yesterday and one of the hives has been making a small crack between the...
  8. Re: Pros and Cons of leaving a supper on over winter

    From what I've read, bees don't heat the hive, they heat the cluster.

    Re: Robbing problems

    I found it best to do it late at night or early morning before the sky even starts to lighten. Then they have to come out that way and it confuses them less. At least in my experience. YMMV.

    Re: Robbing problems

    Yeah works great when you have a bottom entrance. Not so much with a top entrance.

    Re: Robbing problems

    I had an issue where my robber screen looked like yours SpringGreen and all the bees in the screen were dead. They were completely crammed in the screen and had a two to three inch hole. I use...

    Re: D Coates 5 frame Nuc Design

    Thanks for the info. I plan on adjusting the 5 frame deep, but that will change the cut sheet, since it would no longer be optimized. Trying for as little waste as possible.

    Thanks rookie, I...

    D Coates 5 frame Nuc Design

    I was wondering if anyone had a D Coates 5 frame medium nuc cut sheet. I can only find an 8 frame. Just didn't want to reinvent the wheel if it's around. If not I will figure it up and make it...

    Re: Help

    They don't make qc if they have laying workers. They think they are queen right. Are you sure you saw eggs all over? I would put in a frame a week for three weeks., so two more. That should...

    Re: Fall Nectar Flow

    I was out at the hives last night and I could smell some curing going on. So they found something to work. I won't check the weight again until Saturday, but will be interested to see how much they...

    Geez BernhardHeuvel, take a chill pill. I'm pretty sure no one was bashing your long landing board thoughts. Why must you bash anyone else's? To each their own, this should be a place to share...

    I was thinking pesticides as well, but it wasn't that many, just wasn't sure since I heard that as well but couldn't find where I heard that. I don't think I have had any robbing, small attempts...

    Pile of dead bees

    I have had a pile of dead bees outside one of my hives for the last week or so. There are probably around a couple hundred. Most of them look like drones but there are some workers with their...

    Re: Not enough space --mad bees

    I've never had Buckfest, but have heard some people say they can be mean. I would think it's just the time of year. When the fall flow starts in your area, see if they are more docile then. Like...

    Re: Not enough space --mad bees

    If you are using foundationless frames, it's best to bring a frame up. If you have foundation then I still would if I could, if I can't at least they have a "ladder" to get to the top of the frame...

    My guess is your in a dearth and the bees get testy around then. Are they still building comb? Are all frames filled out and bees on them? At this time of year I don't do inspections unless there...
