    Re: bees needed

    If 11x doesn't want the bees, I would be interested in them. I'm willing to pay for it as well. Maybe you could ship it in an old package screened box?

    Yesterday on an inspection of one of my deep 5 frame nucs, I noticed two queen cells with larvae in them. I only saw 2, but there might be more. Does this mean they're going to swarm soon (they still...

    Re: Homemade Lemongrass Oil/Swarm Lure?

    How hardy is lemongrass? I live in Virginia. How tall does it grow? If it's not hardy enough, I may just keep it inside in pots in the winter.

    Do you have any pictures of these systems in use. How many queen cells do you normally get from the first method? I plan on testing mine out before the end of May.
