    Re: Major Problem

    Oh it's fair. And deserved.
    It's this simple: The bees are not friendly pets and cannot be trusted.
    Some have to learn the hard way, maybe you'll be one too.

    Re: Major Problem

    All this blaming the bees for aggressive behavior and you did not use smoke!
    As far as I'm concerned you got what you deserved.

    Re: Major Problem

    A possibility.
    If they did not swarm and it's last years queen still in there where is she from? not prying for names, rather locations.

    Re: Major Problem

    kill them off and move on. if you think they are a danger and don't want to work with bees that aggressive then they
    are nothing more than a dangerous headache.
    put the dry ice to them, says I.

  7. Re: Default Bees seem to be ignoring the bottom deeps?

    Leave them as they are now. Not a big time mistake.
    As mentioned feed them and do something about mites. By feeding they'll start to fill the top super with stores and drive themselves
    into the...

    Re: Hives With Neighborly Complaint

    The way I read this is your bees are legally on your property.
    As diplomatically I could, I'd tell the renter next door not to tell me what to do on my own property.

  15. Re: Trapping pollen w/ Sundance II pollen trap and not affect honey production?

    common here for beekeeper to sell pollen in jars by volume. pints and quarts of pollen are popular north of me.

    some big b supply houses sell by the bag, by weight. maybe some 'beekeepers' buy the...
  16. Re: Trapping pollen w/ Sundance II pollen trap and not affect honey production?

    I don't know, I never weighed it.
    By my account, 4oz by volume of pollen weighs a lot less than the same jar filled with honey. The honey weight
    would come out to 1/3 pound. The pollen weight will...

    Re: Yearly Hive Loss

    there is alot of that lately.
    production, colony loss and swarming are fertile ground for it.
  21. Re: Anyone know what this insect visiting my hives is?

    as long as those guard bees continue to wrestle with them and hold them off there won't be robbing.
    but they're trying. if those bees belonged to the colony they wouldn't encounter the resistance.
  22. Re: Those who advocate OA as a summer treatment, what do you make of this?

    contact them and ask.

    there is a long history of OA use to control varroa.
    I suggest you research it for yourself.

  25. Re: Those who advocate OA as a summer treatment, what do you make of this?

    You want strong, fat, healthy, long lived winter bees. If you wait to treat the colony in late fall the winter bees are already present in the hive and they will not be strong, fat or healthy but...
