    Re: can I start with a 4 box nuc hive?

    Welcome..... I agree with the others. Save the Nuc boxes, you'll need them
    down the road. Build or buy a couple 10 frame deeps and put them on one

    Re: How do you "bait" your swarm traps?

    I've had good success melting old brood comb at super low heat and
    mixing in lemon grass oil when cooling and just getting real thick. I

    Like anything new it will take some time to absorb. Good work Barry. One thing
    I enjoyed (and it's probably here somewhere) was the CP? section where you

    I appreciate the recommendation.

    We're not in a major hurry, and funds won't allow for

    Carboard Nucs leak easily.... especially stacked

    Duct tape all corners and the lid down. Duct

    Looking for recommendations for web site providers.

    Presently we are playing with Squarespace and it's OK.

    Re: Now What?!? So Disappointing!!

    Bees can starve in a hurry, and they are very
    reluctant to come off brood for food even when

    Re: Will Sugar Water spoil?

    The addition of thymol will retard molds and there
    are studies that show it helps with nosema and
    tracheal mites. Randy Oliver has done a lot of
    work with it.
