Fischer's Bee Quick.
Mix and match mix and match. As long as you have nectar and pollen mix and match. I have had no brawling issues in the spring. I'm the same as RayMarler a frame or two from here a few from over...
Your supplier could have given you a virgin on the second go. She would have to get mated before she would begin laying. Welcome to the never ending struggle.
You need drones and dandelions. Good Luck. Feed the splits. Kill the mites!
Mine have been dragging in in for two days.
Bees bringing in pollen for two days here. No patty no sub planning to drop a gallon on next week. I'm 50 for 50 this year thinking about mite treatment. Peace out.
Man you guys are brutal. The kid is just trying to make a living working the nightshift. Parents must be proud.
I'm just in it for the honey.
Remove outer and inner cove from queenless hive. Lay newspaper or another type of paper same thickness( I use auto body masking paper because it is inkless) on top of the bess to completely cover...
My Maxant "no drip" valve has dripped since new. I used the Kelly valve successfully for several years prior to purchasing the Maxant. Either way get a bottling valve. The right tool for the job...

If you are using two strips wait for the 91 day to pass. If you are using one strip I would not worry about the 91. MAQS is most potent in the first 3 days. Make sure your entrance reducers are...
Vita has a field test kit for EFB. Dadant sells it. I used a couple last year. Determined my issue was PMS. I think you have to do the field test prior to treating. Good luck.
I've been using MAQS for several years without major queen loss issues. Give them enough air and they will be fine. It may wipe out a weak queen and they will supersede her. I believe it is...
Why did you think that you had no varroa problem?
If your colonies are strong enough for MAQS they will not be robbed. Here's another thought, pull your honey and treat at the same time.
You'll need a flow to accomplish your dream. The only flow I've had so far is rain. I'm hoping for a box of basswood if it stops raining. Good Luck!
Anyone get nucs from Jester bees this year? I have an opportunity to get some of their nucs. Looking for reviews good or bad. Thanks.
Have a glass of wine and check your bees next week.
And give them a frame or two of brood from your good hive.
I am curious. Why and how did you and the state come to the diagnosis of IBDS if you have a high level of mites. As far as I know Idiopathic means the cause is unknown. If you know you have a...
I use 7 5/8 boxes they will not fit in a medium.
Do you have drones flying? Might be good to have drones if you plan to raise a queen. I would also feed.
Odfrank you make me laugh this morning. Velly funny!
