    Re: Hopless laying worker hive question...

    Thank you all so much for your help. I'm a little confused myself about the whole thing. I did have a good queen ( quite a while ago it seems like) but the eggs I guess have hatched. I think I didn't...

    Re: Another laying worker hive question...

    Thank you Michael for your answer. I hope it is like you are saying. I did inspect this hive every week, looking for those queen cells, but there were none (that I could see) even though I lifted...

    Hopless laying worker hive question...

    Hi everyone!
    I would like to hear what you guys have to say about my problem. I guess it's not a new one, but anyway. I do keep bees in Top bar hives, but I don't think it matters too much, does it?...

    :s So, here's the question: is it too late to inroduce a new queen?
    I have twi TBH, started on May 26. One is going nice and strong, the other one started a bit slower and now waaay behind. They are...
  8. Re: Can somebody PLEASE tell me what has happened?!!

    A little update: the swarm is still there, building fast. Looks like they gonna run out of room pretty fast. So I'm asking for advice here about whether it's possible to combine them with my weaker...

  12. Re: Can somebody PLEASE tell me what has happened?!!

    Right about what?
  13. Re: Can somebody PLEASE tell me what has happened?!!

    I looked (carefully:). And you know what? NO queen cells! Not a single one! I took each comb, one by one, turned and looked on both sides and...NONE! I don't know what is going on!
  14. Re: Can somebody PLEASE tell me what has happened?!!

    Wow! You got me curious! I'm going to go and look for them! But what do I do after I see them? Are the bees going to dissapear on me?
  15. Re: Can somebody PLEASE tell me what has happened?!!

    Dear geebob,
    I will see virgin queens emerging from where? (I warned you, Im SOOO new!)
    Wow, thank you for another great link, (I saved it for the future too:), As far as I could tell this doesn't...
  16. Re: Can somebody PLEASE tell me what has happened?!!

    Yes, they are. I've read yhat they are more likely to swarm, but didn't expect them to do it THAT soon. I've read that usually bees don't swarm their first year, but I guess that is not true eather,...
  17. Re: Can somebody PLEASE tell me what has happened?!!

    Dear geebob,
    Well, looks like you already answered that question. I don't have another TBH ready, we built ours from scratch, and it took us quite a while. Besides, we live in city limits, I think...

  19. Re: Can somebody PLEASE tell me what has happened?!!

    Dear Paul, they swarmed. I checked right after I captured them. There were bees in both hives, I think maybe a little less in the strong hive, but can't tell for sure, it was 12:30 PM, a lot of them...
  20. Can somebody PLEASE tell me what has happened?!!

    Here's my story: Im very new to beekeeping, this is my first year. I ordered my bees kind of late, but they arrived safely (two 4 lb packages) on May 26, and that evening I hived them in my 2 TBH....

  24. Re: Please Help Save our Bees,We Beeks Need to Educate Public Better!?

    I agree that it's safe if the animal is pasture raised, but this is not the manure that most of us have access to. Nobody walks on the pasture collecting one patty at a time. Most of manure avalible...
