    Re: any commercial overwinter up north

    They take advantage of a long honey flow period.

    Good bees properly managed winter just fine in the north.

    Re: What is chewing on my hive?

    The more I look at it...I see two pockets cut into the wood. One above center and one above the question mark. Would a mammal be able to gouge like that...I still think it was a woodpecker.

    But...

    Re: What is chewing on my hive?

    Wondering if it might be a woodpecker. The resolution isn't high enough to see detail in the marks. On the left side of the damage are some marks that look like a peck mark. A few others as well in...

    Re: Worker Piping?

    Tom Seeley talked about this at Westchester, PA in March. It's a recruitment dance but I forget for what. Perhaps to recruit nectar receivers.

    Re: double nuc

    You might want a larger entrance on the bottom board come July/August to help with absconding.

    Personally, I want more control of my cell building colonies. To me, the Cloake Board is a contraption whose purpose is eliminating steps in the cell building side of beekeeping. I think it leaves...

    Re: double nuc

    Sorry to make fun of your question. I shouldn't have. But, read the posts here in this short thread. That's the point. Two colonies of bees on 8 combs each all under one cover, wintering better than...

    I don't know. Why not? Use what you want, what you have, or what you have access too. It's not about the box it's about the bees.

    Re: Supercedure & Queen Failure?

    Bees are like your kids. In the summer, when it rains every day, and it's summer vacation, the whiney kids get bored. And who do you think they blame. Ma...there's nothing to do. Ma...we're bored....
  21. Re: Question on Splitting/Finding the Queen

    Make your split and shake off all the bees. Place it in and empty body above an excluder over night. Take it off in the morning, locate it in the apiary, and give it a queen. No need to look for the...

    Re: Wall Street Journal---CCD Report
