    Re: Queen excluder yay or nay?

    Someone, Fatbeeman perhaps, says they wear out the bees wings squeezing through them. I just started using them this year.

    Queenless destroying queen cells?

    I moved my hives a couple of weeks ago. A bunch of bees didn't like the change and returned to the previous location. I set up a new hive for them. They moved right in. I added some frames with brood...

    Re: Queen but no brood

    Looked in the hive again today, found capped and uncapped brood.

    Queen but no brood

    I made a split out at several weeks ago. I'm seeing a queen for at least 2 weeks, more likely 3. But I see no eggs or brood. It has been cool and rainy a lot lately... just hasn't made a mating...

    Re: $3.25 medium supers!

    I started making my first hive parts last night. I am using mostly Poplar that was cut off our place. I had to plane it and edge it, but I still like doing it all myself.

    Re: Stung by a bee

    I'd suggest, unless allergic or something, you take some Zyrtec and Zantac. Both are antihistamines that work on different receptors. It may help with the inflammation and such.

    Sorry for your trouble. To answer one of your questions, yes, you can become allergic to bees (or anything for that matter) at any time. So just because you weren't last year, doesn't mean you...

    Feeding in spring?

    Do I need to feed my bees this time of year? This is an established hive, but I'm new to bee keeping.

    Thanks

    Hi from Indiana

    New bee keeper here from southern Indiana.

    My wife and I got a hive from her parents for Christmas. I don't know much, I've been reading though.

    Re: Help! I think my bees are leaving!

    Ok. I took the reducer board out of the opening and propped the top up, maybe that will help with ventilation.

    Re: Help! I think my bees are leaving!

    My in-laws brought this hive down in January, so I haven't had to do anything to it yet.

    It has been cool here at night, in the 30's, so I still had the reducer in. I'll go out and remove...

    I know there is room in the top super for 3-4 more frames. We left them out so I could put some ziplock feeders in. So should I put those empty frames in? Switch the top and bottom supers?
