    The Dregs,

    If you need somebody to come help you look at your hives, I'm relatively close over in NE Paulding County.

    Re: Split of a Colony

    Phil,

    The nurse bees will stay as they have no idea where the original hive is, they will orient to the current hive once they become field bees. You said the frames were capped brood. Are you...

    Re: March Hive Check - post them here

    7 out of 10 have made it up to now. Had to pull a bunch of brood out today so they don't get too crowded and decide to swarm. Put in some foundationless frames for the wax builders to work on in...
  6. Re: Georgia Beekeepers - anyone seeing swarms yet?

    Just NW of Atlanta about 45 mins. Just got into my 7 remaining hives from the 10 I went into winter with. All are booming with brood in all stages. All have capped drone cells, but saw no drones...

    Re: Attacked by bees in SE AZ

    How is it a pain? I just throw in some pinestraw, get a good bit of fire, close the lid and I'm all good....when I don't do that, yeah they always seem to get me right where my veil touches the scalp...
  9. Re: Installing wax foundation without it warping???

    Let them build their own, use a starter strip of foundation (1" of foundation at the top) or use a popsicle stick/paint stick cut in half glued to the frame. It's a lot cheaper in the long run for...
  10. Re: Advice for new hives and swarm for upcoming winter

    I'm not much further south than you (Atlanta area) and I got a small swarm last september. I didn't think it would make it through the winter, but I fed it and it did and it was my best hive this...

    Re: My Small Swarm Has a Queen!

    Re: Swarm prevention

    Peter,

    I didn't put the cappings out for them to reuse, it was so they could get what little honey was left in them back.

    Re: Swarm prevention

    They're still building comb on foundationless up near Lake Allatoona. Ignoring all the cappings I've left outside for them after harvesting some frames as well. Something is still flowing for them...
  17. Re: Swarm/Re-queen delimma I could really use some advice on....

    You could add a frame of eggs/larve from your hive that has a laying queen to the one that has no eggs. If they start building queen cells off of that, you don't have a queen. If the don't, you most...

    Re: the beetles won

    Yeah, I almost lost a hive to them earlier this year. They're still recovering, but they'll make it. Amazing how fast those bugs can take down a hive.

    capped queen cells and laying worker?

    Went to check on one of my new packaged hives today. Found some beautiful capped queen cells, they had lost their queen some how, maybe killed her as her laying pattern was horrible. On the next...
  22. Re: HELP - Keeping Bees off Neighbor's Trailer (ASAP!)

    If all rationality is gone, tell him to spray the bees on the awning with hornet killer. They'll die right there and it won't make a difference in your population of bees.

    Re: 1 week package check: no brood

    If you blow on the frame, the bees will move out of the way (they don't like the carbon dioxide), although they do seem to get a little upset but it doesn't hurt them.
  25. Re: Have you ever seen a newly packaged hive swarm?

    Move a frame of or two of brood up into the new box to encourage them to move into it.
