    Re: Beekeepers in Moscow?

    Yes I do speak Russian, but it can be very topic specific so I will have to learn some new words. I have been in and out of the Former Soviet Union for the past 13 years.

    Re: When to add third medium hive body?

    I would not add yet, I am right around the corner from you and there is no flow right now so comb drawing is very slow. If you add another box you are giving room for SHB.

    Re: Bees under hive, normal or no?

    Check your hive and find the queen, I would bet she is under the screen. They seem to do that when they are stressed and I would bet they will abscond within a week. Seen it happen several times. If...

    Re: Two Week Checkup Help

    You need to order a queen and shake the entire hive out on the ground before you place the new queen in the hive. For best success you should also put in a frame of brood but if you don't have one I...

    Re: Crappy packages and what to do?

    You are right and it is, I almost bailed out before the transaction because I did find a local guy which turned out to be much cheaper and 100 times better bees. I will mark it down as lesson learned.

    Re: Roaches

    I keep some hive in a wooded lot and they have always had them, at first I was worried about it but they never have done any harm. I think it is nothing to worry about.

    Re: Crappy packages and what to do?

    So you are saying you would take on the chin and not ask for anything back? What about the fact that they said they don't know when the y can offer replacement queens?

    Re: sealing for a trapout

    I built a box like Whimpy Hogan's box which has a sort of a wooden tube that mounts over the hole in the tree. To seal the sides and any other hole I use expanding foam....works like a charm.
