    Re: Please help dont know what to do.

    Remove the feeder, any entrance reducer, and you may likely need to give them more space. Couldn't tell if you still have the entrance reduced, but it looks like you may. This will ease the...

    Re: Are my supers full of syrup?

    Yes, but junk. Winter feed at this point. Give fresh frames for your late flow. Harvest, and replace with this stuff for winter. JMO!

  6. Re: What is this slot used for in this frame?

    Thanks Jackam....I have always used hook wired wax....saw a deal on Amazon last season for wax foundation in wooden frames, so I bought 10, and my bees HATED it. Threw two frames in two hives as an...
  7. Re: What is this slot used for in this frame?

    It's called a wedge top. Intended for use with wired wax foundation with hooks. You snap it off, put the hooks from the foundation in that space, then nail the wedge back on. I wouldn't do it any...
  8. Re: first split ever, delayed queen addition. Questions

    Personally, I would let the bees figure it out. I wouldn't go into the hive for at least two more weeks, if not 3. But...that is just one opinion.
  9. Re: Write off has just a glimmer of hope

    What do you have for other resources? Can you take a couple of frames of emerging brood with nurse bees from a couple other colonies? If you're going to try to save it, it has to happen quickly. ...

  12. Re: Do bees cap sugar solution or just nectar??

    Capped sugar will be clear with white wax cappings. I don't know the colors of your spring nectar flow, but it should have some color to it I would imagine. Hopefully somebody from your area can...
  13. Re: Do bees cap sugar solution or just nectar??

    They will absolutely cap sugar water once dehydrated to their liking. How long did you feed? Only you will be able to tell if it's sugar water, or honey. Capped sugar water is virtually clear,...

    Re: Eating Wax Foundation

    They aren't eating it...they are moving it...and yes, very common. They'll build it back out when they need it.

    Florida beekeeping is different...it's most common to run single deeps, then QE,...

    Re: Using deep frames in 2 medium boxes?

    Since you are just using it as a swarm trap/lure, go for it. Swarms like the feel of "space" when moving into a new home. I usually only put a few frames into a lure/trap for that very reason. If...
