    If they had foulbrood, then you need to clean the hive or get rid of it. Are the frames drawn out? If so I would be careful about dipping them in lye, since wax absorbs chemicals.

    The bleach may be why your bees prefer the fountain. They like water that has a distinct flavor so they can show other bees where to get some. I'm not sure if it will hurt your bees or not.

    You can put a empty box on top of the nuc and put baggies with slits in them or mason jars with holes punched in the lids.

    I had a similar sting and I ended up going to the doctor. He said a cold pack and benadryl or a similar medicine will help. The pack made a huge difference. Hope this helps.

    Sundance, would you mind giving us an update on the fully drawn HSC frames? I heard you ordered some and I would be very interested in the results.

    Thanks for the help. I'll keep an eye on the hive to see if it swarms. I plan on moving the bees in the observation hive to a nuc once they're stong enough.

    Do they look kind of like peanuts? They could be supercedure cells which mean you have a failing queen.

    When you requeen, put your old queens in some alchohol. That can work as a swarm lure.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Sounds like either swarm or superseder cells. How many are there? Also, are they capped? If not can you see larva or eggs?

    They could be signs of varroa. The deformed wings can be caused by parasitic mite syndrome. Also the throwing out of healthy looking pupa.

    I don't think chalkbrood can cause deformed wings. ...
