    Re: Weak Hive

    I did lose two other hives over the winter. They almost made it, but it got down to zero in February, which is rare, and that got them. I knew I had to feed them, but was afraid to open them up. ...

    Re: Weak Hive

    Hi again,
    Thanks for the advice. I don't have another hive to pull from, but it would sure help if I did.

    Hi again,
    In Georgia, the Indians used red clay for dye. They also used gum balls. We called them "ink balls" and they were different from Sweet Gum balls.

    Weak Hive

    Hey Guys,
    The hive I had that made it is very weak. It has a queen and some emerging brood, but there are no new eggs.
    It has only two frames of bees. They are hardly foraging, even though we...

    Thanks for the heads up on the dangers. I am very aware of that. I read in a wild foods book that if you ate, say a toadstool, that it would be the most violent, painful death you could die. So the...

    It sounds like y'all had a rough winter up north! It held on here as well. We had zero in February, which is rare. The late spring got one more hive.

    Hi Lenny,
    Yes, from what I've watched on youtube and read on this website, a nuc is better for catching swarms. However, the only time I've done it was with a 10 frame. Everyone should have about...

    Hi Lenny,
    I'm really sorry about you losing your bees. It sounds like you did everything right. I would rob the honey for sure. That is yours.
    The ants and robber bees will just take it. As far...

    I'm sure there are pros and cons either way, but I would say this time of year that it would be good to give them the room. I'm anxious to hear the experts advice though.

    Hey thanks!
    I think I will go with option one. Just because I have to choose one. The original queen will be more apt to make it.
