  3. Re: These are yellow jackets right? Pictures.

    Nasty jackets. I found last year when I was replacing bag feeders and left a couple used ones next to the hives, they became good traps. they found their way through the slit and that was all she...
  4. Re: Found capped queen cells, don't know if my queen is AWOL.

    That is a slim chance barring a catastrophe. Odds are you will at least end up with one laying queen, then you could re-combine. Worst case, you have none and add a mated queen and you are back on...
  5. Re: Found capped queen cells, don't know if my queen is AWOL.

    You aint kiddin, couldnt ask for a prettier pattern. Add in a little local Ferrel genetics and Voila! That's my kind of queen! G
  6. Re: Found capped queen cells, don't know if my queen is AWOL.

    Like Clyde said. sleep easy, worst case, you can combine and add a mated queen, and be back with one strong hive, but you have a good hance of winding up with2 queenright colonies in a few weeks....

    Re: Anyone know what tree this is?

    I agree, but Sumac will grow tall. Not that I've ever seen it planted as an ornamental. The bees here love it. I think there are a lot of different sumacs. Could be in the family. G

    Re: Anyone know what tree this is?

    Picture isn't very good, but it looks like staghorn sumac almost. If it is, the answer is yes in a big way. G

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    Checked production hives for progress. 3 mediums 90% capped apiece on single deeps. Good year. Went back in questionable mating nuc and found it indeed queen-less, will combine tomorrow. First failed...
  14. Re: Found capped queen cells, don't know if my queen is AWOL.

    You could always just tear down the cells and they might not swarm again, but then you run the risk of becoming queenless if the virgin dont make it back. You can always combine the bees later if you...

    Too much work........:lpf:
  16. Re: Found capped queen cells, don't know if my queen is AWOL.

    I would vote try and be sure not to move the virgin and transfer those cells. If they hatch in there you are likely to have an afterswarm or more, taking the newly hatched virgin with them. Even if...

    I want to try a long lang at some point, just haven't gotten around to it yet. G
  18. Re: Found capped queen cells, don't know if my queen is AWOL.

    With capped cells it should be quicker. From eggs is usually 28-30. Depending on the age of the cells, I would put the outside at 21. Don't you think Gary? G

  22. Re: Found capped queen cells, don't know if my queen is AWOL.

    If when you go back you have any young larvae/eggs, make sure those are in one split and the cells in the other. They will make a new queen with the young larvae you give them if they are queenless....
