    Some friends of mine didn't have very good luck with their nucs. They were new beeks though. The bees "looked" healthy when they got them. All 4 nucs didnt make it. Not trying to say anything bad,...

    Re: Can bees fix this?

    Another thing is the wax moth webs. If there's any on the comb, try to get as much off as you can. They have a hard time removing thick webs. I didn't see any in the picture, but not all frames were...

    Re: Robbing?

    I can only reply to your second question. I think your syrup was actually too thin. Ratios are pounds (sugar) to pounds (water, which is about a pint.) I would have fed 2:1, sugar to water. It's...

    Re: When to start supplemental feeding?

    Lift the back of the hive and see how heavy they are and get back to us. You don't have to look inside to check stores.

    Re: New Hive, might be Queenless...

    They don't stop based on temp. They base it on hours of daylight and incoming nectar. Are there any empty cells? I still lean towards being honey bound.
