    Re: Supers after Extraction

    do you leave them on until cool weather then push the bees back into the brood boxes? Maybe leave them till the fall flow is over? do you extract fall honey as well?

    Arkansas heat

    Have any of you in the AR area noticed the bees have all but stopped wrawing comb? Has the heat and dryness shut down the flow? What are you seeing in your area?

    Re: is this an acceptable set-up?

    Yea I wondered about the direct sunlight issue. Besides SBH what else do we need direct sunlight for? It seems the bees know it's daylight and are bringing in plenty of pollen so far.

    Re: is this an acceptable set-up?

    Yes shb did come to mind but since it's concrete under them they can't get to the ground to pupate right? They are also facing west and was concerned about the wind.

    is this an acceptable set-up?

    My concern is the bees will think its not raining and get out and get in the rain and die. This was an old dog pen and thought it might work out well.
