    Off Center

    This my first TBH and my first experience in beekeeping. Is it normal for the bees to start building comb over to one side? They've started three combs and they're all on one edge, away from the...

    I have a new TBH and they're just starting to build comb. I don't want to open the hive for a couple more days. They've just been in it 9 days. Will bees bring in pollen if a queen is not laying...

    Are they leaving?

    I went out an hour ago to check my hive. It looked like a bigger than normal cluster of bees on the outside (like all of them) so I opened the observation window and there were only about ten bees...

    Baggie Feeder

    I've seen this type feeder mentioned several times. Is it just a ziploc bag with some holes in it? Sounds messy. I also read to sand down a couple of bars to give the bees access to the area on...
