    Re: Hot Hive Re-Queening?

    Thanks for the reply. The hive is definitely as bad as the one in the video. Guess he'll just have to suck it up and give that a try.

    Re: Theft

    I like the idea of the game camera/cell phone. That would allow both realtime monitoring as well as pictorial evidence if it was needed to identify the culprits later.

    Thanks. If they had stores in two boxes, do you think the cluster could extend from one box to the other?

    Clustering?

    When it gets cold enough for bees to cluster, do they cluster in any specific place in the hive or is it random during the cold weather?

    Cure Time

    Is there a rule of thumb about how long it takes the bees to cure honey? I would assume weather plays a part but have no idea as to how long the process takes.

    I hope they're moving in. Had no luck last year attracting a swarm but things are looking up so far this year.

    Re: Crush and Strain ?'s

    Thanks for the idea on separating the wax and honey in the oven. Are you saying that after it separates, you remove it from the oven, let the wax harden and then just lift it off?
