    Re: Rookie trap-out question!

    Unfortunately I think your right. Last night, after writing this post, I did some more research and found that to be a bad idea. I wish I had the option of doing an inside cutout, but I don't think...

    Rookie trap-out question!

    Alright, so I got a call from a lady the other day about some bees living above her second story window. I looked at the hive today and found that her house has cedar siding and is about 20 feet off...

    Salvageable?

    Ok, so I'm going through some old frames that I had lying around for a while. I have already replaced them, but I hate to throw em away. Can the bees repair these if I decide to keep them or are...

    Re: First check of the year

    I didn't take many pics of the combs, but many of them were full of honey. There were at least two frames in my 2 deep hive that were still uncapped. The single deep had half a frame uncapped as...

    Re: First check of the year

    Thanks! I used a Canon Rebel XTi with the standard 55mm lens. I had to crop most of the closeups.

    Re: First check of the year

    Thanks for the compliments everyone! Yes, these hives are pretty rough. I got them from an old field where they sat for years and years. I hope I can fix em up a bit this year sometime.

    I wish I could answer your question beepro! These hives were sitting in a fallow field for 10 years untouched. A friend I worked with was talking to me last fall and said "Yea, we have some old...

    Found the queen! (pic)

    Today was super warm, so I decided to check my three hives that I rescued last fall from a derelict field in Northern New Mexico. The two deep hive made it, as well as one of the one deeps. The...

    Re: Hive body question

    That really depends on where you are at. In Alabama I kept two deeps for overwintering, although I know a lot of people use one. I felt that if the year was a reasonable one, then two deeps would...

    Re: Bees building comb in a jar?

    Thats cool. I may give it a try myself anyways. I think it would be cool to have my own personal jar of this stuff. Definitely for novelty.

    Re: Questions on re-queening

    I don't mean to bump this, but could I put the old queen in a cage for about a week before I get my new queen? That way by the time the new queen came in I could have pulled the old queen out the...

    Bees building comb in a jar?

    I was just browsing bee stuff when I cam across a fundraiser site for a film crew. They had jars turned upside down with the openings fitted into a board. This was on top of a langstroth and the...

    Just talked to a local beekeeper that has a lot of experience in this area. The nectar flow is coming to an end. Maybe that has something to do with it. I'm glad I found these hives, I've missed...
