    Re: Queen cells anyone!

    I have never had to deal with EFB. I have seen it once in a cut out about 3 years ago. We live on a time crunch here with drawn comb productions. Once we hit a dearth they stop all together and the...

    Queen cells anyone!

    I recently introduced a new queen to 11 hives. As I was going through them I found one that decided it was going to make some more queen. I guess one wasnt good enough. This is a good example why you...

    Re: How long to wait introducing new Queen?

    Is this your only hive? The reason I ask is that you could add them to another hive. Just a thought.
    You should see queen cups in about 3 days or so. Did you make sure you got 1-3 day old eggs in...

    Re: Introducing bees to an exisiting hive

    I have done about 11 cut outs this year and if I can't get the queen, which is about 50-50, i do a paper combine. I just open the lid, slap some paper down, cut a few slits, and add a box with all...

    Re: Can anyone tell me what's happening?

    Look at the lights and see if they are flying around them when they are on. I don't know if the place is open toward dark but if a hive was near they would go toward the light.

    Re: Is this normal with a cutout?

    Dj, I think I will add it in a few days. The middle box was just there so I could have room to put the on top. We are really warm here in San Antonio tx and I have a heck of a time with hive beetles....
  15. Re: Total failure, need advice and encouragement with 10 hives.

    I would leave the virgin queens in there. I would expect them to lay in a week or less once they hatch. They will lay like crazy to. You won't be to far behind. I moved a large hive of mine and...

    Is this normal with a cutout?

    I did a cutout yesterday and instead of making a separate hive with them I decided I would try doing a paper combine. I was wondering if it was normal to see them boarding up on the front of the hive...

    Re: Queenless Hive

    It may be a good thought to combine the two hives if one of the packages is queenless. If you look at the timeline you are gonna wait about 2 weeks to put eggs in the queenless hive. They will raise...

    Re: removed small hive from wall

    When you go back in to add the frames make sure that you have a queen or eggs so they can make a queen cell. Also be award that they may still leave. Cross fingers they don't.

    Re: Queen in box, no eggs, queen cells

    Why do you think there would be no eggs? I find it interesting that she stopped laying. I looked at the queen and she looked younger. That doesn't mean she is. They still had some room to grow. They...

    Re: New hive, not feeding

    Leave them alone. Try not to open to early. If they want to feed they will feed. I would only make sure the queen is out. The more you open them the higher chances of them to abscond. Like it said,...
