    Thank you for all the work you do, raisers of queens!!
  11. Re: 5 weeks since package installation -- don't see any eggs or larvae

    Thanks for the update. There are few things that are as satisfying to me (and I suspect all of you) as a colony of bees thriving by simply being bees. Are you doing any mite treatments--there are...

  17. Re: Three 8-frame meds filling up: should I just keep adding boxes?
