    Re: remove bottom box?

    Re: dead hive

    Can you describe the process in a little more detail? I've experienced something that sounds very similar. I haven't taken the hive apart yet, but they died out pretty early.

    Re: Lost a hive

    Thats exactly what I was wondering. I wasn't sure if they would take the stuff that had been frozen. Would it be a good idea to freeze all 20 frames just in case there are any small hive beetle...

    Re: Lost a hive

    Not trying ot hijack your tread, but I think I may have had the same issue. I started a hive in early may from a 5 frame nuc. I lost my queen at some point and the hive made a new one. She went...

    Re: Stores are bone dry

    yes I am. In the spring I had it on top of my brood box and they filled the whole thing up with burr comb. So I kept the inner cover on and put the patties on top of that. Like i said, they are...

    I put two tsp of pro health in the gallon of syrup (about 1.5:1). I heard that they may not like that stuff because of the thymol so I used a really low amount. They lemon odor is pretty prominent...

    Re: Stores are bone dry

    I'm in south jersey, and I've got no capped honey left either. I was queenless for a little while, but the new queen has been hard at work. I've got no drawn frames in my only super, and it looks...

    Re: Possible Queen less hive

    Ok, that might make sense. It was more than three weeks ago when I though she may have been killed, and I've noticed the amount of brood decreasing with every inspection. I just assume they are...

    Possible Queen less hive

    I did an inspection of my one and only hive yesterday, and am a little concerned that my hive is queenless. I've only been doing inspections once a week, but I take a look at the hive at least once...

    Re: Bee-Pro Pollen Substitute

    I have some in pattie form, buy haven't used it yet. I thought about maybe giving them some on top of the super I'm about to add to entice them to climb up. We'll see how that works out.

    Re: Compressor

    It'll work. The cfm is more important when considering continuous use tools like sanders or sand blasters or even roofing nailers. One staple every 5-10 seconds will be fine. Remember thought that...
