    Re: Best type of feeders..

    The syrup stays in the pail/jar via vacuum. The bees do get in line and remove the syrup from the holes. It will puddle a little when there are temp extremes. They just get in line and suck it all up.

    A queen bee will have rust colored rear legs while all the other bees rear legs are black.

    Go through the roof and remove them. The repair is easy IF you are careful with the removal of materials.

    Yeah bud, definately check out youtube. There are many ways to install a package of bees. You make prefer one over the others. Common sense will filter out the incorrect install videos. lol

    Re: Depressing.. Gotta tell ya

    Use the frames of course. The next bunch of bees will appreciate that they can start storing and laying right away. It sucks to lose just one hive let alone multiple.

    She's off to the side and it looks to be the early flow going on. The bees could care less.

    This is the post I was responding to her0rz. Which is your post. I gathered when you stated this it was a COMPLETE hive operation. Maybe not? Minus bees? Confusing.

    Re: package install without comb.

    My opinion? Hive them straight into the 8 frame medium. Also, my opinion, get with a local beekeeper that can give you a couple of drawn frames (or comb that you can rubber band in your frames) to...

    Re: upper entrance?

    Are you running a telescopic top or migratory top?
    An inner cover with a 3/8" x 1 1/2" slot works well here with a tele top.

    Re: Stand question

    Hard to see, but it was built similar to garushers stand. You will need to add one in the center to keep it from sagging with the weight of five full hives I imagine. Or, you could repurpose pallets...
