  1. Re: Consequences of climate change on plants, pollination, and bees

    It doesn't seem to be hypothetical according to the data that is cited in the article.

    Re: Documenting Individual Hives

  7. Re: Expansion and Contraction: Your tales of making increase and losing big

    I built up to around 30 a few years back. Now I'm back down to 2 nicely overwintered and 5 newly hived swarms, 2 of which I'm currently combining.

    Re: What to do with a bucket of bees?

    I would set it in conditions as close to those in which you found it and then devise a plan to move the comb into standard frames. I assume it was on the ground, and suspending it on sawhorses or...
