    Re: Requeened-not accepted again- help!

    I think you are fortunate to have supesedure cells. I would let them rear their own queen. She will out perform the mail order queen. The fattest supersedure cell will likely be your best queen....

    Re: My First Year Progress....Opinions??

    I use to worry about ventilation, but I'm pretty sure it's OK to cram the bees into their boxes. Especially this time of year. -They're not going anywhere! Here in TN it is good to keep them crowded...

    Re: Beginner looking for some advice

    You can take the honey in the mediums and perhaps along the outside frames of the deeps. Then feed 2:1 sugar water. They will also store the fall flow. Don't panic about mites unless you have them...

    This is not a queen cell...(right)

    I do not think this is a queen cell. It is all by itself.
