  4. Re: Swarmed twice,now have 2 boxes, the top is honey the bottom is comb.

    Re: Warre swarmed twice now what?

    I didn't get a book, but I will agree with you. I found this site a day or so after I got my swarm so I have had some good advice and have read a lot on here. I was going to try to be "hands-off"...

    Re: Amount of smoke??

    Re: Smell of a hive

    Mine has a very nice buttery smell, I noticed it the other day. Definitely does not smell like dirty socks ;)
