    Get your hive a foot off the ground. No more skunk problems. Open your bottom entrance again. Feed as you wish. Live happily ever after.

  16. Re: Can't find queen no brood and honey gone but lots of bees

    Get them all in one deep then put a newspaper between them and your swarm. You can shake them out of your second deep or use an escape board in order to clear the bees out.

    Well you should check all your frames for capped queen cells or a cell that is opened at the bottom where a queen hatched out. I would venture to guess that they swarmed and that you have a virgin...

    I use Boardman feeders for my nucs. You can also use an invereted plastic pail on top of the frames but you will need a spacer box to enclose it.
