    Re: How much is it worth?

    What they are worth is what the seller can get for them. What I would give for them this time of the year is nothing.

    Re: Introducing A New Queen

    If you have laying workers they will most likely kill the new queen immediately upon release.
  12. Re: What am I supposed to make of these torn down queen cells?

    We have a hive doing the same thing. The queen is laying frames of eggs in nice tight, solid patterns. They are still trying to raise queen cells. We have found queen cells repeatedly. Usually...

    Oxy in this case is Teramyacin. The government is not so much behind these changes as the medical profession. The fear of antibiotic resistance is the leading factor in these changes. A big factor...

    Re: Strong Hive, No Honey

    Maybe robbing? Put on a robbing screen of some sorts and feed them. With no more feed than you say, if you do not feed them they are going to starve.

    Re: Can I take honey after feeding syrup?

    Your first years selling set your reputation for ever. If you sell honey that is not up to par it will haunt future sales. I would advise it is not worth the risk.

    Re: ok so I removed a hornets nest

    One thing to consider, if you bag them and freeze them okay, but if you spray or apply any chemical you are a pesticide applicator. That requires a license and liability insurance.

    When we re-queen we remove the old queen 24 -48 hours before the new queens arrive. Three days after the new queen is placed in the hive we go through frame by frame and remove queen cells. The...
