    Re: BeeWeaver made good

    I bought a Nuc from them in April. When I got it home there were very few bees and no signs of a queen. 2 frames were not even drawn out. They sent me a 3 lb package to make it right. Can't complain...

    Re: What Am I looking At Here?

    I was trying to get them to draw wax on some empty frames in a honey super. Instead they filled it with drone comb. I pulled it off and will scrape all the wax off. They didn't cover the frames, they...

    Good, I was hoping that was what it was. Kind of a mess to clean up.

    I was doing an inspection on my hive today and noticed these white larva in the middle of the two boxes after I had removed some frames. There was a discussion here a while back about drone larva in...

  11. Re: Keeping the Grass Cut Around and in front of Hive

    I mow up close all the way around my hives with no problem. I just make sure the exhaust isn't pointed towards the hive. When I get close to the front they usually run back inside until I'm done.

  13. Re: Why so many bees on the top of my inner cover?

    That could be. It's been in the upper 30's a few times here at night and mid 70's during the day. Most of them just seem to be hanging out. Just a few are messing with the burr comb.
  14. Why so many bees on the top of my inner cover?

    I noticed a few weeks ago that I had a lot of bees on the top side of my inner cover when I removed the telescoping cover. I looked in on them today and they were still there in mass. Looks like they...
