    Re: Making NUC out of single Medium?

    A medium is what I use as you suggest. I prefer to have my bees in a couple deeps and then use the mediums for honey but sometimes they have a different idea. When I get a full house in several...
  6. Re: Mating nuc with virgin queen and queen cells in it

    I've read where the virgin queens do not develop adequate pheromone until after about three days so maybe this is part of the issue. Please keep us updated on how they progress. My guess would be...

    Dave, same issue here. I pulled a nuc from each of my four hives early and now am up to 9 but they have been very very slow to build up with all the rain. The 4 hives are building a little surplus...

    I think it's great you plan to do this type of thing during your summer off. I have been thinking about building a few of these like "fat bee man" talks about in his youtube video. ...

    Welcome, I'm just south of you across the river in KY. I have four that all survived and are booming. Hoping for a good year.
  15. Re: uncapped queen cups- do they have eggs in them?

    Bees will make queen cups in anticipation of their natural swarm instinct. In some instances, depending on the hive, they will keep some queen cups ready (on standby) just like they have brood comb,...

    You might want to try the local bee club in the county near you. I'd bet there are several beekeepers in or around Danville, they just may not be on beesource. Try emailing the contact and see what...
