    Re: Assistance in Identification

    I've got feral bees like those in California too. They sometimes rob in the fall, not really aggressive stingers either.

    Re: Unusual Scene in BeeYard

    If there was usurpation going on what would be the proper way of controlling it? Would it be the same measures as robbing?

    Re: epic fail

    They probably thought there was an usurpation going on. How about just a frame or two of brood with some nurse bees. Does the queenless hive have good stores of honey?

    Re: Queen marking

    Some people do with a stick (like a wooden match stick). Need to let them dry for a time before being returned to the hive from the odor.

    Re: Robber Screen Entrance Question

    I agree, just make the entrance away from the smell of the entrance (through the screen). When I'm being robbed my entrance gets put down to 1/2" by 1/4" or less.

    Your bees are a lot stronger than mine then if they can lift one side of the hive up to create a space for an exit. Or really, really small bees...

    Re: Robber Screen and drone removal.

    Yes, they can still evict the drones with the robbing screens on. I believe it's better to have the robbing screen on and not need it than not have it on and need it.
