    Re: cut out under a shed

  13. Re: Are you ready for the Odfrank overwintering challenge?

    Took 3 into winter. Came out with 3. All 3 in double deeps busting with bees. Treatment free. For me it seems harder to get through the summer and fall because of the SHB. I lost 5 hives last fall.

    Re: Lawyer bee swarm

    Batman, I looked through both swarms and couldn't find a queen. I may have missed her (or them). She could have come along with the 3rd group that came a couple of hours later? Or maybe not at all?...
