  1. Re: Switching hive bodies and relocating....what order?

    Just a suggestion, I would relocate, give them a few days the adjust to the new hives. I would then switch to the Langs. I would put a frame of stores (honey, pollen) on the outside then an empty or...
  2. Re: Making a Slatted Bottom Board for a Small Cell, 8 (9) frame hive.

    I've read in either this forum or one of the bee magazines (or both) that you need at least 1 1/2" between the screen and whats under it to keep mites from crawling back up where the bees are and...

    Put a feeder jar with very small holes in the lid (use solid lid if you can) on top of 3/8" or 1/2" pieces of wood over the hole in the inner cover. Put another box on top of the inner cover to cover...

    Re: Swarm trap/catch question

    How big was the swarm? My first concern would be that they may leave a nuc box because of a perceived lack of room as they grow. That said, I have hived swarms in the fall or if it's a small (equal...

    Re: Wiring foundationless frames

    You would need frames that have the holes in the end bars or you can drill holes in them. Drive a small nail in the side of the end bar near the bottom or top hole, drive another nail or brad near...

    Re: Could someone explain "gap" please?

    The bee space between frames in different boxes should be 3/8" from the top of the frames in one box to the bottom of the frames in the box on top. That's the way I understand it. I'm like you,...

    Re: To glue or not to glue?

    In response to stadger's question about bees building comb on the slatted racks: I've never (yet) had any comb built on any of the racks. Not a silly question either, a good thing to ask about for...

    Re: To glue or not to glue?

    Nice photos and plans. Where did you get the plans? The reason I ask is that I use slatted racks and sometimes they fall off the bottom of the first box and, if it does miss my foot, which it usually...

    Re: One bee carrying another one

    Sounds like undertaker bees carrying away the winter dead. If there was no fighting at the entrance, it's probably just the undertakers cleaning the hive.

    Re: Dead Out a possible swarm trap?

    I have a wood duck box that has had bees in it for the last four years. The first hive died the winter of 2012-13 and another swarm occupied it last spring. I think they died this past winter too. If...

    Re: What size for a swarm trap ?

    A small swarm may use a 5 frame nuc but they will evaluate the trap for future expansion. I've had swarms that were to big for an 8 frame deep. Go 10 frame deep volume and you'll be ready for the...

    Re: Swarm Trap With No Comb

    As long as you have traps up, even with only lemon grass oil, you have a better chance than NOT having traps up! If the trap is the right size, in the right location, and swarms frequent the area,...
