    Re: Making bricks using anodized aluminum pans

    When I was in the store I couldn't remember "silicone rubber muffin trays" so ended up with the aluminum ones. Thanks for reminding me--- Where so you get them?

    Re: Making bricks using anodized aluminum pans

    allniter- Thanks for the additional info

    FlowerPlanter- How long do you air dry them? I've already heated my first batch but have some in a cupcake pan that I didn't heat.

    Re: Making bricks using anodized aluminum pans

    Thanks, Lauri. If it works for you just using the aluminum pans, then I'm OK with it.

    Paulemar,
    Those smaller ones I'll use after the other larger bricks are used.

    What are the affects of this warm weather on the hive? I'm in the north east and was wondering if they will be needing more food for "possible" :rolleyes: winter weather. Are there any other things...

    Re: What an odd season...

    Pollen coming in here too. Mine is orange and some is off white. A neighbor beek also found some drone cells in one of his hives about a week ago. Yes, really odd.

    Re: Winter wrapping with bubble wrap

    The idea for using the bubble wrap was to keep the upper hive box warm, especially towards the last part of winter when most of the bees are in the upper box. Also, it was to cover the edges of the...

    Winter wrapping with bubble wrap

    Has anyone wrapped their hives for winter in bubble wrap? A beekeeper friend is experimenting with this. He plans to wrap about 1 and a half inches from the top of the 2nd hive box to a few inches...

    Peter,

    I too would make the exchange-- but these were alive and being wrestled out in the front of the hive by several bees. Forgot to mention that they were alive. I guess there isn't an easy...
  19. Re: After treatment- bees removing others- just curious why

    Michael and Phoebee,

    They were neither pupae/larvae. One thing I did notice, but not on all the bees in an hours time, was that some had a darker body, and several looked like they might not be...

    These were not drones. I used formic acid with no noticeable brood mortality, though I had expected some. I just noticed thisa on the front landing board. Since there is a good nectar flow on I don't...

    I just finished treating for mites in my 5 hives and noticed that some of the bees are wrestling other bees out of the hives. I was wondering if this was a result of the treatment or the time of year...

    Re: Bearding all day and night

    OK I'm at the "calming" mode now. It's interesting that they also don't go inside even though we've had some deluges overnight.

    I guess that was my original question. They have one empty super on the top of each of the 5 hives now. I know it won't hurt them but maybe I could add another super to the ones that have a huge...

    Re: Bearding all day and night

    jjohnsind,

    I may just tilt the top lid to get a little more air movement in the hives.

    What do your slatted bottom boards look like? I have too many critters of all sizes that could make that...
