    Re: Bad luck or what?

    It all falls to timing. Because of your queen problems the population of bees peaked after the flow, or at least towards the end of it. This resulted in low nectar collection coupled with a large...

    Re: SHB in capped brood?

    That photo was from 2 years ago. Not so bad now. I use full bottom traps and normally 2 beetle blastes per box. Still have SHB but not quite that bad. I just show those photos to demonstrate what a...

    Re: My first bees tonight

    failing to cap brood in my hives has almost always been EFB caused. (Which will eventually clear once the flow starts) I image there is capped brood in the bottom box which has not been inspected....

    Re: My first bees tonight

    The brood will most likely be in the bottom box, not the middle box, if the hive is weak. You need to look at some pictures of what frames of pollen, brood, capped brood and honey look like. Until...

    Re: Advice for Urban Ordinance Change

    Did the city quote you a specific section or text. I can find no reference to beekeeping or honey bees or bees within the online Johnson City muni codes.

    Re: My first bees tonight

    Just now read your thread. A couple of things come to mind. First, the uncapped brood, is it pearly white or does it have some browning.
    A hive that fails to cap developing brood can have EFB. I...

    Re: Bizzar Brood Pattern

    The brood along the edges, is it capped or not? It is possible that the centers you are seeing are where capped brood emerged. Brood that was completely surrounded by honey and pollen. After some of...

    Beetle blaster do catch a lot of beetles and can mean the difference between a hive being over-run or surviving. Full bottom oil traps are the best solution I have come across. I use DE in both the...
