    My DIY Observation Hive

    I made this last year and wanted to share it with everyone. It was surprisingly cheap and easy to make. Glass and hinges where the bulk of the cost. I think it came in at around $80. Here is a...

    Got a call about a swarm that had moved into a drainage pipe at a school. I don't have a bee vac and I think that is the only way they'll get them...

    Re: When do I add a honey super

    You'll want to leave about 50 pounds. Typically that translates to 2 Full Deeps or 3 Full Mediums that are full of honey, pollen and brood.

    Re: Swarm cells?

    Those links are from a private album. I'm on google+ and can't see them. You need to share those pictures and then post the links from the shared pic.

    Re: Beekeeping is a very cheap hobby

    I actually started a blog last fall about cheap beekeeping. You can get the equipment you need for around $60 and the wooden ware for langstroth hives will set you back about $150, but you'd have...

    Re: Is it the end of March or February?

    Saw a dandelion in my yard this afternoon! We almost hit 70 today, but the problem is we're supposed to be back into more typical temps after tomorrow. I'm getting excited about swarm season. I'm...

    Re: Where do package bees come from?

    Sorry, but my first thought when I saw the thread subject was, "you'll find out when you grow up.". Then I pictured a stork carrying a package from its beak.

    Re: Langstroth: Top Hive Entrances

    Ha! I was just thinking the same thing. What are the problems with top feeding? I think most understand the problems with entrance feeders and open feeding related to robbing, but I'm ignorant to top...

    Re: what happened? AFB???

    Thanks for the replies. My main worry was that it was something contagious. I think it was starvation and then robbing from the hive next to it. We had a horribly wet spring and then the rain...

    what happened? AFB???

    I'm not sure what has happened to one of my hives. I opened up about 4 weeks ago to put a top with feeder on it and it had bees in it. Not very many, but it had at least 3 or 4 frames. We had a...

    Re: Swarm Tree???

    I'd make up a bunch of cheap 5 frame nucs and keep one in the tree during swarm season and just switch it out every time a swarm moves in! I'd love one of those trees!

    yeah, what he said! Also, I've heard that there is a chance that when the population of bees in the hive gets really low they will sometime abscond and are collectable like a swarm. I've got the...
