  6. Re: Second attempt at grafting a complete failure.

    Hello I have never grafted before but I think the point of a starter is to give the Rjelly to the cells and the finisher is to cap and heat the cells. A queenless hive will be WAY more likely to make...

    Re: Carniolan/Italian Hyrbid Help

    I think if you make them queenless for 1-24 hours you can put a caged Carn queen in there... I dont see why they would kill her. The only time I know of that she is killed is when they have a queen,...

  9. Re: my version of a Cleo Hogan Trap opinions please.

    Another thought... why not just make the cone a bee escape... so they cant go back in? If you did that the queen would go out and be traped out.

    Re: My experiment with foundationless

    How can you select for Varroa mites that do this?

    I dont know how but if the Varroa mites can and do find the drone comb in the hive, go inside the cell, get sealed in with the drone larva, I...
  11. Re: my version of a Cleo Hogan Trap opinions please.

    I read that people let a strong hive rob it out by placing honey in the outside entrence to get them started. Then you can patch all holes and leave the comb.

    Re: Crazy Hive Design

    I agree. There was a man who made a 15 queen hive and the super was one peace that fit on top of 15 two deep hives. The super was lifted with a crane and a lot of eye bolts. lol

    Re: The world's worst beekeeper - me

    I did not get it from the picture, but is the hive dead because of freezing to death? the brood does look a little pale/dark.
  17. Re: 2 queens in my nuc today! Did I move the right queen?

    Thanks for the heads up. I myself have not seen balling but only read on bee source forums and ABC about it.
  18. Re: 2 queens in my nuc today! Did I move the right queen?

    I have done some reading into queen-balling. I read in ABC and XYZ of Bee Culture that when a queen is balled she will be stung or suffocated to death because there is a queen present, there are cell...
