    Re: It has not been a good year

    So, say I buy a dog from a pet store and somewhere down the road it develops serious health issues and dies. If I find out it's because it had bad genetics, parasites, disease, etc. when it was sold...

    It has not been a good year

    Third year of beekeeping and despite setbacks, I'm still enjoying it. I started the year with three top bar hives. First one was started in late March, three days after buying and installing the...

    Re: Where bees go to die...

    I've seen them dropping the dead ones on the ground just a few feet from the hive. The ground around my hives is covered with pine straw so when they drop a dead bee on the ground they blend right...

    What did you use to cover the roof? Looks like it's all one piece.

    Re: Hives cleaned out - help!

    Were you feeding them? Large hives need a lot of honey. This time of year there's not much for them to bring in while foraging. Sounds like they depleted their supply.

    Re: Bearding

    Mine were bearding last week when it was in the 50's and raining. I put the hole reducer in and they all went inside. I don't know why.

    I'm originally from VA and we called them Japanese Hornets too. Mean little buggers.

    Re: Roach problem

    I keep a flyswatter by my two hives. Have it ready when you raise the cover and be quick. It also works well on hornets if you can catch them sitting still.

    Re: How much is it worth?

    Based on what? Someone has already said it would depend on what kind of wood it's made from. It could be warped, drafty, rotted, or eaten up on the inside by wax moths. Does it have a viewing...
  12. Re: Is it a bad idea to inspect a hive while the bees are bearding?

    The top of my TBH flips over toward the side of the hive that the bees are bearding on and hangs there while I work. If there's a lot of bees hanging out there you stand the chance of squashing some...

    Re: How much is it worth?

    If they're in good shape and built well buy the empty one (if it has bars included with it). It's probably not worth more than $70. Clean it up, paint it, seal it good, and wait until next year for...
  14. Re: What a difference between flow and dearth in behavior.

    Every spring there'll be all sorts of comments from people about how their bees are so docile and how they don't need to suit up or use smoke. By the time fall rolls around you don't see much of...

    Re: Regular Corn syrup

    My wife had a bottle of regular Karo corn syrup (contains no HFCS) that she was going to throw out so I decided to try it in one of my top bar hives. Initially, I put about a half of the bottle in a...

    I think they're drawn to sweat. They follow me around all the time and don't attack me but they want to land on any bare spot they can find.

    I've seen very few SHB so far. Keeping my fingers crossed. However, I'm seeing a lot of big black hornets catching honeybees. They usually grab a bee and then land somewhere close (on top of the...
