    Re: Swarm Gathering or Robbing?

    My guess is that it's just robbing. Crystallized honey would probably take a lot more time to rob out than liquid honey, if they were going after it. There's always a chance that later in the year...

    Re: Table Saw

    I would also recommend a higher end saw for safer work and better quality results if you have the budget and room. I like the Delta Unisaw I have too. I have had it over 20 years and does as good...
  3. Re: Puzzling hive, possibly queenless? What can I try that I haven't already?

    I am not wanting to be offensive or anything, but since I don't know you, have you done a cut out before? One thing I can think of is if you put the comb upside down from the cutout, the comb won't...

    Re: First Spring Action - Fighting

    What if it's bees from different hives robbing yours and squabbling over rights? I would check it out carefully. I've seen bees fight over honey soaked bowls, etc. before going back to gathering.

    Mid September swarm update

    I caught a swarm in mid September last year and want to update on it. The bees filled about half of an 8 frame medium when I got them. I fed syrup on the nights that were warm enough, about 1/2...

    Re: What are yellow flecks on dead bees?

    Not the best picture, but looks like wax capping bits to me.
  9. Re: Bees with Butt's in air at entrance **VIDEO** What are they doing?

    If you're concerned about robbing you can reduce with screen or use a robber screen. They do need to be able to defend their entrance.

    Re: Bees like sugar more than honey?

    Are you sure that the tons of honey wasn't the tons of syrup you fed them, or at least some of it was? They will store syrup and cap it when necessary even when they have stores of honey already.

    Re: Swarming???

    A swarm is a good thing potentially for the species as a whole as that is their process of producing more hives and expanding their numbers, but as enj said, there are risks that come upon the hive...

    Make one choice step at a time and you will be fine. Get your box size figured out you want and then forget that decision and think about frames and foundation. You actually have more than natural...

    Re: Just don't know what to buy

    Your frustration probably happens because you don't have any experience so you don't have a personal preference yet. You need to determine that there's no real right way or wrong way within the...

    They probably stored the sugar in comb.

    Re: USDA applies for OA registation, Feb 4, 2015

    I too would be surprised if it goes through and nothing changes for the worse. It's not paranoia, it's a healthy distrust of the government.
