    An update--I got the wall sealed up enough to keep the bees out, and as of yesterday there were only a couple bees still lingering. The owner is going to clean out the foam and all, get the comb...

    Re: calking up the entrance to a wall

    A friend had a swarm moving into a cinder block wall on Sunday and called me. By the time I got there, many already inside. I smoked and banged on the wall, then used some bee go. A good amount came...

    New resident at my bee yard

    I and my phone are not the greatest picture takers, but this little guy was next to a stack of empty mediums I keep at my yard in a shrubby area. I had taken off a lid and the top box, then...
  8. Re: My 9-year-old retrieving rather large swarm - takes hit to forehead

    Your son must be so proud, as he should be. I noticed in my colonies too, some of the smaller ones suddenly started booming in about a couple week period.

    Particularly 2 small swarms I got from...

    johng, did you lose any hives due to spraying? I am envious of your good OB crop! Nice going!
  12. Re: putting a swarm trap next to a swarm trap with bees

    I have bait boxes within feets of each other. I just had a swarm move into a 5 frame nuk bait box right next to an established hive. As it's swarm season, it's likely I will get one in the other box...
  13. Re: Care to chime in about your 2015 Florida citrus yield, losses etc?

    I started a new yard this year that has a grove within 1/2 mile, and other groves within 2-3 miles. At the beginning of flow I placed empty drawn mediums on all the hives. Mid March they were maybe...

    Re: Pseudo Name on Bee Source

    My name is Beverly and over the years I had a few friends call me Bevy. So, got bees, then thought it would be a good name with a bit of a play on the word "bevy" with honeybees. It's the name I use...
  15. Re: How about some procedural input for collecting honey

    With today's heavy rains and more to come, Orange bloom is probably done. Each hive is 1 deep, correct? I am in Lehigh also, and what I see now is a big build up of brood and it seems much of the...

  18. Re: My 9-year-old retrieving rather large swarm - takes hit to forehead

    That was my thought too as I watched the video, the bees leaving either at that time or later. I had a situation like yours and I ran something along the tree branch at the base of the swarm to try...

    Funniest bee question ever asked

    At work yesterday one of our supervisors stopped to ask me a question about bees. She said, "now…do you release your bees this time of year so they can fly north for the summer???" After I blubbered...
