    Re: Feeding with hive top feeders

    If you think you have sneaky robbers getting in, put the entrance reducers on with 1 to2 Bee's wide so the Guard Bee's can protect it.

    Re: Wd-40

    Bee's don't like the discharge of the mower hitting their HOME either. Don't ask me how I learned that. They also don't like the Exhaust from my Truck either. Still learning at 86 Yrs. At least I...

    Re: Wax Moth question

    When you ask a question about Wax Moth like that, you will get all kinds of answers. If the damage is BAD, then discard the Wax, if not, the bee's can handle minor damage from the wax moth. You will...

    Re: two nucs, one doing great, one not so good

    That is the advantage of having 2 hives, so you can compare 1 to the other. Might help if you could give the weak hive a frame of Eggs and Brood. Maybe you can get a frame from who ever you got the...

    Like the Guy said, he has Lawyer gene's in his family. He is worrying about something that likely won't happen anyway, but I guess it keeps his brain busy.

    Re: Bummer from a removal last night

    I don't understand why the Bee's were still in the HOSE. Just turn the Vacuum on and suck them into the box. Fix the Vacuum so that you can take the hose out of the hole and close the hole. Even a...

    I keep a bottle of Bendadryl Allergy in my tool box for times when I get stung. It helps with the itching and swelling. Liquid gets into your system quicker.

    Firfly, when you put the Wax in the frames, make sure that the TOP of the Wax is at the top in the frame with the slant in the cell's pointing UP like it was originally.
