    Re: Propolis problem

    Thanks for the suggestions/replies. I'm slowly learning to live the excess glue. Guess it just takes time.

    Propolis problem

    I have a hive that really puts out the bee glue. It's almost impossible to pull a frame in the brood box without destroying it. I've never had a hive that produced this much glue and stuck...

    Re: Some bee always on porch

    Thanks for the ideas. I was afraid to smoke them for fear of them just flying around. Guess I'll give it and the water a try anyway.

    I want to move a hive but cannot find a time they are all inside the hive. I check before daylight and around 10 at night and there are always around two dozen bees on the front porch. Is there a...

    What is the best way to clear out a super that the bees have built comb across frames instead of lengthwise (some had starter strips and some were foundationless)? It's completely full and very...

    Re: Hanging a queen cage

    I believe (on the one like I pictured) it should be horizontal with the tube at the top. That way, if any attendants were to die, they would not block the exit and the queen could still escape.

    Hanging a queen cage

    What is the preferred method for hanging a queen cage like the one pictured below and exactly where in the hive would you place it when re-queening.

    Thanks,

    Re: Hot Hive Re-Queening?

    Thanks for the reply. The hive is definitely as bad as the one in the video. Guess he'll just have to suck it up and give that a try.

    This past spring my son trapped a swarm that when moved from the trap to a deep got real busy about building up. In very short order there were 2

    Re: Theft

    I like the idea of the game camera/cell phone. That would allow both realtime monitoring as well as pictorial evidence if it was needed to identify the culprits later.

    Thanks. If they had stores in two boxes, do you think the cluster could extend from one box to the other?

    Clustering?

    When it gets cold enough for bees to cluster, do they cluster in any specific place in the hive or is it random during the cold weather?

    Cure Time

    Is there a rule of thumb about how long it takes the bees to cure honey? I would assume weather plays a part but have no idea as to how long the process takes.
