    Re: Save my beehive!

    I would agree with TSK. That bee is definitely a queen to me. Maybe 2 or 3 lbs package will be the shot in the arm to propel what bees Radu has left over the winter.

    Re: Weights on labels

    @Charlie B, I think in 10-15 days the virgin queen should be mated and laying eggs. Otherwise, I wouild terminate her and raise a new queen. Good luck.

    Re: How do you tell is a Queen is mated?

    Aside from being smaller, a virgin queen scurrys around the frame in a faster pace. The mated queen moves at a much slower pace, regal, almost. My observation.

    Re: Harvesting Uncapped Honey

    I would tend to agree with Pokerman11. Spin the uncapped cells first and use either for mead or even home consumption. I would also extract frames having only 10% or less
