I've been assuming that all the queens that have purchased are mated and true to...
No I haven't contacted Russell apiaries. I've contacted four companies in California. I was hoping for someone local. all were out for the near future including Koehnen.

Thank you for the link. I'm in awe of your website.
its quite informative for a hobbyist like me to read such detailed recommendations from a pro. tank you for taking the time.
actually part of the problem is that family members are getting stung 150 feet away from the hives for no apperent reason. My father was stung near his eye picking peach nearly 170 feet...
Thank you so much for your response. In now way I was disparaging BeeWeaver or voicing any dissatisfaction.
To the contrary, I actually was ordering from you guys for several years until...
Ive been beekeeping for more than ten years. Started with a Buckfast package from B Weaver. Trying to find a friendlier more productive variety I later on I ordered an All-American queens from R...
not a problem. remind me around x-mas to make you a cutting (note. I'm in zone 9. most of my plants don't become dormant until december/ january) unless you are willing to gamble now?
I am actually in zone 9, luckily pink lady is bearing in my yard. I know that I was pushing my luck with some of the varieties since they require up to 800 hours of chilling.
for those of...
where do you get your plastic from, and don't you have pollination problems? how do you get your bees to pollinate ?
I made my greenhouse out of metal electric conduit that I have bent....
I would love to hear what you guys grew this past season. what unusual fruit trees you have. any apple connoisseurs around?

since I moved the cell cups on day four to the quenelles hive, (noting that day one was when I first noticed the laid eggs in cell cups) I assumed that they were just about ready....

after day six, only five out of the twenty were being worked on. the egg are gone from the...
eight or nine years ago I was in the bay area for my brother's abdominal surgery. while waiting in the hospital I came across an article in the Smithsonian. lets say it wowed me.

over the past couple of month I had new queens killed by workers after eating through the candy :mad: .
yesterday I came across this publication that indicates that "One factor is the...
two weeks ago I had three different stings on three different days. two while hives inspection (nasty swarm that I caught) , the third while gardening. the third was in my arm. I had a horrible and...

I hope link below helps.
>> Make sure that you don't have laying workers.
I'm sure non have laid anything.
>> By chance did you brush off the attending bees before you put these frames into your troublesome hive?
three weeks ago I captured a swarm. I killed the queen, and introduced an All-star queen from Draper. a week later I checked there was no queen . I assumed that they killed her.
I ordered an...
