    Re: Received Queens with dead attendents

    If I had a spare queen cage I'd transfer the queen.
  3. Re: Requeening failed, how should I move original queen back?

    A "push-in" queen introduction cage strategically placed over a patch of emerging brood and nectar / open honey, is what I recall as being the ideal setup.

    She will have a "retinue" when...

    Better yet, share a 5 pound bag!

    Re: Changing Ultrabreeze zipper to plastic

    My zipper has never presented a problem.

    The zipper of a sail cover on my boat is starting to be difficult to "start", it is plastic and is also about 7 or eight years old.
