    Re: Queen cells Please analyse my pics

    I would put on a second brood box instead of a super right now. Take off the excluder and let the queen move up and give her more room to lay. The bees don't need more room, the queen does so she can...
  7. Re: What price to charge for strong beehives I have to sell?

    It is funny how people say they wouldn't pay 3-4 hundred dollars for a hive, but they turn around and buy the bee keeping kit, 200.00 - 250.00 and then a package of bees, 100.00 -150.00 depending...

    Re: White clover yields with honey supers

    Like has been said, it all depends on your area and the flow that is on in your area. I have had bees here fill a super and cap it completely in 1 1/2 to 2 weeks. Now that was in a perfect condition....

    Re: Wax Moth question

    Just the old comb. I have heard the bees won't work it after it has had wax moths. I am not sure so I am asking. I am not burning the boxes. I should have clarified that. Sorry.

  13. Re: Second Year Bees....not much honey so far. Is this OK?

    That is the thing about about honey bees. Sometimes you don't get the cake and get to eat it to. Or get the honey and get to eat it to. Like said before, if you want them to build comb then you have...

    Widdy,
