    Re: HoneyBees and Appletrees

    Plant varieties that are suited to your area/zone. Lots of antique fruits (not just apples) bloom over a longer period and give fruit that tastes better than what you see in the supermarket plus...

    Re: Checking hive during winter.

    Re: Swarm today in Northeast Texas

    I would put in at least one frame of drawn comb, will give the queen room to lay if she wants to. The drawn comb also would give cluster space with room for bees to get in cells and warm the cluster...

    Re: Swarm today in Northeast Texas

    I would leave the entrance small and close the SBB. I had a couple of spring swarms that didn't like the bottom open, too much light I guess. If you have the honey, keep giving it to them. Do you...

    Don't know what your temperatures are right now but you could research mite away quik strips (MAQS). They kill mites inside the cells but sometimes have an adverse effect on the queen. Like enjambres...
