    Re: removed small hive from wall

    Sounds like you did a good job on the cut out.

    I would get the frames of foundation installed now, they will start to build comb from the bottom of the inner cover.

    I would feed them some 1 to...
  3. Re: Laws restricting killing/exterminating bees

    Most exterminator companies around here will not kill them, they are telling everybody it is a state law, but that is a little gray area. I think they just do not want to deal with the mess left...
  4. Re: why did bee push wax foundion out of frame?

  8. Re: does a swarm ever leave & move straight into a new home

    Never seen one leave the parent hive and go directly to their new home. To me it seems they need to cluster first, this makes the initial break from the parent hive and they know the old queen is...

    Re: bee space,boy did i goof.

    My guess would be the bees in the bottom box are around the queen that is still in the cage.

    Bees hanging from the bottom of the feeder are building comb.

    Re: putting a swam in queenless hive?
