    Re: Need a queen in CT ASAP

    Thanks for the input, Michael. I found the bee math on your page and worked it out, and realized that I may have jumped the gun a little early. I just didn't want to end up with no hives this year....

    The short story: Need one, preferably two, queens ASAP. I'm in Naugatuck, but willing to drive basically anywhere in the state, or over the border into NY or MA.

    The long story: Two hives had...

    Re: Any swarms in Connecticut yet?

    Keep an eye on the "Please Post your Swarm Dates" sticky, particularly reports from the east coast. You can see the swarm reports moving northward. The most recent one is from PA, west and slightly...

    Re: Drones flying in Connecticut yet???

    I've been wondering this myself. I haven't had a chance to get into the hives in two weeks, and I'm wondering when they will start swarming.

    I'm curious as to how other people's hives in CT are doing, particularly compared to last year. Are they ahead or behind?

    I lost both my hives last winter. This winter, I have 3 hives, started...

    Re: Mapping swarms and blooms

    Shelley,

    The fusion table will only copy the data from the spreadsheet when you first create it. To get it to auto update took a small bit of setup. Basically, there's a script associated with the...

    Re: Mapping swarms and blooms

    garprob,

    Re: Mapping swarms and blooms

    I should, generally, happen almost instantly, but Google does a lot of co-locating and pairing, etc. so it might take a minute or two for the server showing the map to catch up. I just looked and see...

    Mapping swarms and blooms

    The "post your swarm/bloom" threads are nice and all, but they are getting rather unwieldy. I realize they were originally being used by someone to map them, but that appears to be defunct. So I've...

    How do you get swarm calls?

    I see all these posts about people getting numerous calls, but it's not clear to me how you are advertising. Do you post on Craigslist? Put up fliers? Talk to pest control companies? What?

    Re: Package superceding?

    Package superceding?

    I installed my first package of bees on the 22nd. I checked a few days later, and the queen was out, and I saw her, but no eggs or brood. I checked again yesterday, 2 weeks after installation, and...

    Need help identifying bees

    I installed my first hive yesterday.

    Before I did that, however, I noticed a few (unrelated) bees checking out the back entrance to my house. Today, I saw that they were entering and leaving a...
