  1. Re: New package - bees moved in next door and left queen!

    A tiny drop of water might be appreciated too.
  2. Re: New package - bees moved in next door and left queen!

    You could try putting a frame of bees, and maybe a shake of bees in with the queen to see what happens. I always hate pinching a queen, even a useless one.

    But at times they need to go....

    Re: Feeding the Bees. How necessary is it?

    I'm not too far from Ossining, and the maples are in full bloom.
  11. Re: Question on hand cranking a radial extractor

    Re: Why plastic in the brood nest

    Experienced beekeepers are simply moving the entire frame and not fumbling with q-cells on plastic frames.

    Re: Unsure of how to help cold bees

    Dobeedobeedo,

    I think that everything is still "swell".
