    Question about hive top feeder???

    I currently have two growing hives and having been feeding them 1:1 sugar syrup for a little over a month. I suspect that I will be adding a second deep by the end of this week as nearly 7-8 frames...
  15. Re: I shook the bees off these frames... I'm thinking this is bad!!

    So I just shake the bees off of the frame of eggs and replace like you mentioned? Also, will this weaken that hive of Russians?
  16. Re: I shook the bees off these frames... I'm thinking this is bad!!

    Will this weaken my nuc hive? There are 5 frames in there with hone, eggs, larvae, and a queen obviously. If I accidentally take a frame of eggs that has the queen on them and put it in my other...
  17. Re: I shook the bees off these frames... I'm thinking this is bad!!

    I am picking up a replacement queen tomorrow. Will that colony still kill the queen if she is introduced in a queen cage and let them release her?

    I have two other hives, one is another package I...
  18. Re: I shook the bees off these frames... I'm thinking this is bad!!

    I don't think there is a queen in there??
  19. Re: Installed package on May 18th.. No brood????

    I can get a new queen quick, do I just put her cage between the frames and let the bees naturally release her?
  20. Re: I shook the bees off these frames... I'm thinking this is bad!!

    I have a new queen I'm picking up on Monday. What do I have to do to introduce her into the hive? Can I just put the queen cage in there and let the bees naturally release her?
  21. Re: I shook the bees off these frames... I'm thinking this is bad!!

    I have another hive, but it was a package installed on the same day as this one, May 18th. I just posted another thread where I was concerned that I hadn't seen any brood in that one either.

    I...

  23. I shook the bees off these frames... I'm thinking this is bad!!

    I posted a few pics the other day of these frames of what I suspected was drone brood. I did not see any worker brood among the drone brood, nor anywhere else on the frame. So, after taking your...

    I see larvae and drone cells????

    I see quite a bit of larvae and what appears to be drone brood? Is that what the raised cell areas are? Anybody see anything suspicious here, or is it normal?
