    Re: Unknown swarm

    Re: Hive beetles explosion

    This year seems to be a really bad one for hive beetles.

    In the past when I had a hive slimed, I've rinsed off frames with a strong stream of water and it helps get rid of the crud. I've only put...

    Welcome to BeeSource and good luck with your bees. Some times we have to feed to get bees through a long, dry dearth, especially with younger, new hives.
  10. Re: Applying Overwintering Nuc Techniques for the South

    Not sure about the top bar hives but Lang nucs that I have over wintered are treated just like regular hives, only on a smaller scale. I'll use one or two deep 5 frame nucs for brood and stores plus...

    Welcome to BeeSource. If you have a Fall Golden Rod and Aster flow the bees should finish drawing the comb and filling it. If you're under a drought right now you might want to consider feeding 1:1...

    I've read that you can put the cheese cloth, or any other cloth used to strain wax, in a solar wax melter and most of the wax will come out and be recoverable. Right now I'm using a slow cooker and...
