    Re: Ants having a field day

    Thanks everyone.

    It appears that they are just there and around the hive in general. Funny thing, I have a boardman feeder inside in the back of the hive (it's a 2 week old package) and there are...

    Ants having a field day

    I am not normally concerned with ants anymore, but I checked in on my TBH yesterday and found an extremely large number, right above the first spacer, at the front of the hive.

    Re: Three Years In A Row

    Very cool Hambone! Hope they're freebies, and not your bees!!
    Thanks for the pictures. I've been wondering about the rubber band fix, it makes total sense now.

    Re: Ok, lets not do that again.....

    Ooooh- I like the masking tape idea! Wish I had that knowledge yesterday…and today.
    I can't even imagine the work that went into the transfer working with the wired foundation.
    Good luck!

    Re: Strange design, have to back-step

    Thanks, I just peeked in- the first one fell (not pictured) :pinch:
    Cut it down a bit & gave back. I feel really bad now because the queen is really doing a heck of a job laying. Also, I put the...

    Re: Strange design, have to back-step

    Thanks for all the replies, and your example Delta Bay.
    My issue with keeping what they built on the frames & guides was the management in the future, turning them around. If I mixed up the new,...

    Re: Nuc development inquiry

    Hey ERIC!!! They've gone through the capped brood just about. Got a handful left. She was a mated queen purchased from Kelley's, but none of her brood is capped yet.

    Thanks Toadman. I am just trying to get them off to a good, straight start. This seems like it will never be correct, as they were building in 3 different areas, and flipping around to give the...

    Strange design, have to back-step

    Hello there!

    I was able to participate in a top bar hive class / inspection yesterday- and not a moment too soon!

    We installed a package last weekend, and they are very happy in their new home,...

    Nuc development inquiry

    Hi all,

    I created a nuc over 3 weeks ago, started with 5 frames of brood/honey. They got a queen on the 13th of May (they were one week queenless).
    They are in a Langstroth 8 frame medium.
    The...

    Re: Young hive treading water, feed or not?

    I assume you only have the one hive? Was it installed recently?
    How many of the frames were drawn when you stopped feeding?

    I'd say it was a good idea to add the second box, based on the...

    Thanks for the advice, I'll monitor. Any particular tips on deterring wax moths? My other hives seem to ward them off very well.

    OK to treat nuc for varroa?

    I made a nucleus hive a few weeks ago. They've accepted the queen I gave them a week ago. I checked in on them today, and saw a few capped brood that didn't make it out and were dead. I also saw a...

    Re: releasing queen into nuc

    I tried that… Post entitled "EPIC FAIL". Did not go so well. I introduced a new queen nice and slowly last Tuesday. All is well now.


    You can put a half mini marshmallow in the hole in place...

    Thanks Stan. Should I put another hole on the cover, on the gable?
  21. Re: Microphones for sound recordings in hives.

    Plastic is a bad idea if we're going back to the idea of putting the friend's higher-end mic in there. If it is a high-end, large diaphragm recording mic, it will pick up everything that touches (or...
  22. Re: Microphones for sound recordings in hives.

    An omnidirectional lavalier condenser microphone will do it, as it has a pretty thin wire. It also can be potentially clipped, if there is a spot on one of the frames that has some missing comb- the...

    Have you had some unexpected cold snaps? I lost 2 in March 2013 in much the same way as you described. They froze.
