  2. Re: Reduce hive size for winter for late season swarms?

    I would put the small colonies in double 5-frame boxes and feed, feed, feed. And then be prepared to put fondant on them when needed.

    Re: My medium frame Ulster Observation Hive

    I'm not sure. When I have the time I'll check to see if I have any pictures.

    Re: What in the world are they doing?

    Who knows? I would certainly not be shaking any bees anywhere. It would have been interesting to know which queen they ultimately ended up with. But as you said, the queens aren't marked.

    Use screws with TiteBond II or III glue....

    I seal over the exposed end grain with TiteBond as well. Same for the heads of fasteners.
