Thank you all.
Thanks for bringing up the drones. I was thinking the drones were darker. I saw this article:http://beeinformed.org/2013/11/why-your-drones-are-getting-the-boot/
Went looking at the hive today and noticed some dead bees outside the hive, also half dead carcasses and some woozy looking bees. Looked like the bees couldn't fly. They are lighter in color and...
I would think also, you just gave them a lot more space, they need to get used to it. It would make sense to me that things would be a little hectic for a day or so. Also, why did you add two boxes?...
I got one of these. It's a little pricey, but way cool. Two would be better, then you can space both...
Just looked that up, I think you've got it!
I've heard of that method. Guess the brads wouldn't be any harder to pry off than the propolis eh?
Feverfew has different foliage than the plant allan was talking about.

Thanks so much for your feedback. So if there is honey in that top box it will be fine until the end of summer?

Thanks, Deb. I'll check those out as well.
Thank you! I will definitely be getting the David Heaf books, and hopefully will be expanding my library even more after some hands on experience. Happy beekeeping!
Hey all. I'm new to the beekeeping scene and am looking to fill up my library a little. I just got Practical Beekeeping by Michael Bush and Beekeeping for All (the translated Abbe Warre book). I'd...
We're not by Crater Lake, in fact we're atleast 2 hours from there. Farther south eh. Where we are is 2500'.
Thanks everyone. We're looking forward to our first Warre hive in the next couple weeks. And onward towards new bees!
New to the beekeeping scene. Excited to learn!
