    What? I never heard of that before. Seriously? Learn something new every day here.
  5. Re: Moved bees into hive, can't find entrance?

    They WILL stay at the bottom. Close the screen. They smell the queen easier through the screen.

    Re: Starting new over Wintering nucs

    The wait time to introduce the new queen is for the nuc to realize that they are queenless wildb. This increases the odds of new queen acceptance dramatically.
  12. Re: New Nucs; with all the dandilions, should we still feed?

    Nectar flow = no need to feed.
    You can over feed which will lead to backfilling, which will lead to a weak hive.

    I never lost that many bees if I added up all of my removal deaths. Maybe 20-30 at the most after a removal.

    Re: My cut-out left! What to do?

    My guess is that they already have a queen with them. Maybe the original queen or a virgin.

    Large plastic food grade bags is the ticket. Just place the comb in, crush with your hands from the outside of the bag, cut off a corner of the bag and pour into your filtering/straining system. No...

    Re: removing hive from a house

    If I could share one piece of advice, it would be to remove the honey comb last. If you remove any honey first, EVERYTHING will be a sticky mess.

    Sometimes you have to know when it's not worth it. Sounds like to me that you are doing the right thing.

  25. Re: Thoughts on collecting swarms at or near sunset?

    Once you get your first sting, the alarm pheromone is on you. Smells like bananas. The other bees hone in on that smell and will continue to locate you.
