    Re: can you overfeed sugar?

    Nope if they don't need it they will stop taking it.
    We don't feed after September in Missouri as we feel it puts moisture into the hives and the bees can fan out the moisture before it gets cold.
  6. Re: Lots of Bees but no brood.. what happend?

    Re: Is getting stung pretty common

  13. Re: Something needs to change - looking for suggestions

    Treat for mites sounds like this would solve your problem.
    Api Guard and fogging with mineral oils would be a great start.
    Try to get a more mite tolerant bee stock.
    Sounds like your doing ok on...

    Re: Bee Tree

    Be careful cutting the tree, you do not want it to fall hard as the honey will break loose and drown the bees, etc.
    These are fun but hard jobs every time we have done them.

  15. Re: Are you trying to introduce more genetic variety to your apiaries?

    Re: Ignorant Question

    I agree with Harry V.. VHS is nice to have and our bees have it, but we don't count just on that. Fogging or Apiguard and nothing to toxic for mites.
