  8. Re: Struggling Hive - three and a half weeks old

    Time will tell, however one of the biggest challenges for a small cluster such as this is temperature. There are not enough bees to regulate the temperature, so even if the queen is mated, or if she...

    Re: grafting of eggs?

    Off topic true that... Sorry, but on the other hand, the topic did wander toward bee sting therapy. As far as death being a blessing, I suppose there are some that could never feel that way, but...

    The answer is absolutely! If you google Bee Venom therapy or api therapy, the web is replete with anecdotal evidence. I will tell you first hand that my family has over 40 years experience with Bee...

    I caught a swarm 2 years ago and the queen promptly disappeared. I purchased 2 queens, (One for my neighbor) and introduced them. Two weeks later, the neighbor queen had laid 2 frames worth of...

    I have some 5 gal buckets of honey that are 30 years old. I was trying to feed it back to the bees in syrup, rather than using sugar. I boiled it to ensure that there were no bacteria in it. I...

    Re: To those who claim they never ever get stung

    I've worked all of my 8 hives down to the last frame, on many occasions, and not been stung. On other occasions, I've been attacked as many as 15 times without hardly popping a lid (attacked 15...
