    Re: Queen noises?

    It looks like I was right. Nice queen in the nuc laying eggs. I checked the queenless hive and it still looks queenless.
    I gave them a brood frame with eggs to capped cells out of another hive....

    Re: Making Sense of Water

    At least the water isnt being injected into gas and oil formations as frac fluid. That water is perminantly removed from our atmosphere.
    Water used in the almonds can retun another day.

    Re: Queen found in empty Deep

    You most likely had a hive with 2 queens and number 2 just got the boot.
  9. Re: Easiest type of cell builder for a beginner

    What's the best ratio of feed? 1:1 Plus pollen patty? Or do you go a little thicker on the sugar? How often do you rewet the sponge? Every day?

    Not sure it's just a sheet rolled into a tube shape. A hose clamp keeps it in that shape and snug but still movable on the hap eat gun. I treat my TBH through a bottom feeder hole and it works better...

    Re: My verroa smoker

    The fitting is your standard 3/4 to male pipe thread. A garden hose cap fits on good enough to seal. I would say a 1/4 bleed hole is what I have ( 3 smaller holes). If I have it apart I will take...

  25. Re: Pulled Queen off of hive. What to do now?
