    Re: Is this chalkbrood?

    I did not see a queen in either hive but I also didn't search for one. I was more busy being amazed by the number of drones. I did not see any eggs although I didn't make a point to look as there...

    Re: Is this chalkbrood?

    This has been during a time of unusal cold and damp weather. Two weeks ago they were very heavy with honey. I hope to get inside later today even though it is still cloudy, damp, and cool.

    Re: Is this chalkbrood?

    Is this chalkbrood?

    This is what I see in front of one (but not both) of my hives.

    All the pictures of chalkbrood I have ever seen the pupae are fuzzy -- these are smooth.

    Of the handful I inspected, none of them...

    Beekeepers don't get cancer?

    Prior to this post I searched the forum for "beekeepers" and "cancer" in the same post and didn't find much -- a reference to a 1954 study.

    I use smoke before opening because I feel I have to. Then I use a sugar/water mixture. Not sure if it calms them down by weighing them down or just distracts them into sucking it all up or both.
