  1. Re: Finding some queen cells with the queens upside down

    The only thing I can think of is they lose contact with the jelly and fall out just before pupating, or they run out of jelly and fall towards the tip of the cell, forcing them to pupate facing the...
  2. Re: Help with Expenisve Breeder queen introduction problem

    I take the original cage, open the escape/entry port, push it into the comb, then put the push in over it... queen walks out with her attendants when she feels like it, easy enough, but makes seating...

    Re: Surprise under a telescoping cover

    I've got them under most of my bottom boards, they don't bother me and I don't bother them. I have found a couple under the telescoping covers, but black widows are generally very mellow spiders. ...

  12. Re: Deformed wing virus in a treatment free hive.

    How sure are you it was a swarm from that hive? You could've lost the swarm and some other bees moved in? Anyways, seeing crawlers is a bad sign but not the end of the world. You need to look at...

    Re: Laying workers or overzealous new queen?

    I had a laying worker hive that had capped brood emerging last year. I don't know what happened to the queen either, but they didn't even make queencells. I gave them a frame of brood which they...

    Doubt it, it sounds like they were superceding her anyways, not swarming. It's always sad when you find this happening, but it's the way of the hive. I had a queen mated last year late, but got...
  23. Re: Capped queen cells all over the place, no queen, no eggs. What to do now?

    No, don't do anything. Give her two weeks to get mated and laying.
