Or will the zinc harm the bee?
I have four frames like this from a hive that died. They are about two weeks old. I put them in the freezer for a day.
I think the hive went queenless and got robbed.
Can I put these frames into a...
Might be fun to see some beeyards from above.
Here is my little one from Goggle Maps. Six hives right in the center.
I'm not worried about that, this place has been an eye-sore for over two years and a druggie flop house haven for the last ten years before that.
I have one of these. It works OK on uneven comb where the knife cant reach or if you need to feed some honey back to the bees. I would not use it instead of a knife because it makes too many little...
Does anyone know how deep a retaining wall should go? Is there supposed to be a footer of some kind?
The guys who built this dug a trench about two bricks deep started stacking bricks then filled it...
Here are a couple more pictures just for fun.
Huge gap between my wood fence and new brick wall. What do you think is going to happen when the gap gets filled with wet leaves?...
Not sure about a block wall permit. There are two posted in front, one for the house and one for the driveway tear-out.
Someone bought the house next door and is fixing up to sell for a profit. That's what he does.
He dug out under the house to make a new room. All the dirt and broken pieces of old foundation went in...
Please bee safe...
That is awesome!
Can everyone please post a picture of your mating nuc robber screens?
Yes, I carefully dig up sample seeds in every garden I plant.
I have one of these and love it.
You will spend more than $200 building one yourself.
I have a Sundance ll top mount. I love it and highly recommend getting one or two!
I plan on getting a couple more for next spring. It takes the bees about three or four days to get used to it....
Made my first cell starter the other day with 8 cups of fresh pollen. After 48 hours all the pollen was gone.
I had two frames like this, 4 cups of pollen each.
I'm no expert. I had this same question two years ago and never asked it. Found out the hard way. :(
I would give them some light syrup in your top feeder so they can put it where they need it.
Are any of you using Top entrances?
I am thinking they cannot drag them out.
Is this too many dead bees for a two week period?
I just want to know if this is a normal amount of dead bees for a two week period?
The hive is three medium high and the queen is laying wall to wall on about 12 frames in the two bottom boxes....
I was planning on putting my Pollen collector on tonight.
Will the drone be able to get out of the escape tubes?
If they make it out will they beg their way into another hive?
I used this...
The brood pattern is solid and it is all worker brood. There is some open brood and a few eggs. The whole area is about 6" in diameter.
I put one medium frame full of mostly capped and some open...
Thanks for the replys.
I was thinking about doing that but the borrowing hive is in medium frames and the Italians are in a deep. Can I put a medium frame between two deep frames?
My only Italian hive is not doing too well compared to my non Italian hive. This was my strongest hive going into winter and it has a mid summer queen that was laying awesome in the fall. They are...
Thank you for the reply.
I want to get these deep frames out of circulation because I'm going with all mediums.
I don't want the queen to move into the deep. Will the cluster move down and leave...
I lost one of three hive yesterday. It left behind several deep frames of partially caped honey.
Can I put this under the brood chamber of another hive with a queen excluder between them?
