    I think having a Flow Hive section on BeeSource is a great idea in spite of the curmudgeons on here.:lookout:
  2. Re: How would a mated queen react to piping?

    I don't know of any female that would "act like a drone and keep her head down"! :lookout:
  3. Re: How would a mated queen react to piping?

    I would be interested in hearing this answer. Is it only unmated queens that pipe? Or do all queens pipe, whether mated or not. There can be mother - daughter queens in a hive.

    Re: New Member from Rochester, NY USA

    Wow SO, you have been busy. You have come up with some good ideas. Are you going to add some screening on the outer cover in the ventilation areas? and I like the tray material, too. I saw Pat at the...
  5. Re: my 1st year experience., my bees died now what.

    Gus told us what he had and obviously did not know what to look for or what to expect in a nuc. Whether he bought it or was given it I believe what he told us and his pictures says it all.
    NOBODY...
  6. Re: my 1st year experience., my bees died now what.

    I don't agree with your statement about the supplier; Ten Bears is correct, I would expect a NUC, not a throw together hive, which is what Gus described and showed in his pics. He was take advantage...

    Psfred:
    "The bees add honey and fungi to the pollen when they collect it -- that's part of the reason why it stays in their pollen baskets, in fact. The fungi start fermenting the pollen...

  12. Re: Bee warmth through different foundations

    I use wood frames with plastic foundation that I recoat with beeswax. This year I will try Dr. Marla Spivaks set up of 3 deep brood boxes from her booklet on Beekeeping in Northern Climates. After...
  13. Re: Bee warmth through different foundations

    I agree with you Brian on the heat penetrating the same with wax and plastic; but what do you think of " communication holes" in foundation? I have never heard of them.
  14. Re: Bee warmth through different foundations

    Thanks OT. The one beek has a preference for natural comb, sometimes we can be a little biased with something we really like :) not having used natural comb yet do the bees make their own passageways...

    I really hope the inventors are on the up and up with this; they received so much money! And I do find this Flow Hive uniquely inventive too. Did he mention any honey bees bothering him when the...
