    Re: Well I did it...

    Do you have entrance reducers on? It may be robbing since your feeding 1:1. It may not be but with new hives it can happen sometimes and you want it to stop asap

    If they started building they are less likely to abscond but it is still possible. I think you are doing everything right. The bees may have gotten so active because rain is coming. Remember if you...

    Two swarms on 4-1-15 and 4-2-15. One left before I got there and the other was to high in the tree. Helped the feral bee population this week and not mine 😞. San Antonio near 78250.

    Look to make sure she is laying. See how to comb look... Storing pollen, nectar, and where she is laying. Other than that just feed them to get them going and close them ip

    Re: First sting ever

    Inside of the nostrile??? Wow. Can't say that would feel great. I have been stung more times than I can count but never inside the nostrile. 3 consecutive times in the ear was a doozy for sure.

    Re: ANGRY Bees

    Look for a queen. It may be a good problem but I would start there. I don't know your area but it seems as though feb would be a little early to do what you did. Just a thought

    Re: Spotty brood pattern VS hatched cells?

    True. I was assuming that they had a brood break up in Canada. Generalizing early in the year you are more likely to see a better pattern from the inside out. Once she gets laying it gets a little...

    Re: Spotty brood pattern VS hatched cells?

    The queen will usually lay in a spiral pattern from the middle out. Follow that pattern and you will see if something is out of order

    You say it isn't reaching larval stage? What is your reasoning to thing that?
