    Re: Hi and help!

    I agree keep it as a hive.
    If the nuc is strong make a split, or let it grow another couple of weeks depending on flow there.
    that way you will have 2 hives.

  14. Re: Question for those that pull/kill queens at flow time

    why?
    If you are looking for a brood break , you are doing a walk away split anyway.

    Re: foundationless

    you do not need to put wax on there, they build it out great.
    but don't turn the frame sideways till it is fully drawn, if you're not going to wire it the fresh wax is way to soft.

    Re: Bee equipment

    Welcome Granny
    shouldn't be much of a problem finding the bees in Georgia.
    I believe that's where most of them (packages) come from for us northern keepers.

    Re: Where do I put my hive(s)

    lets see, no where near the school (throwing distance)
    not white and shrubs was a great idea.
    I'd be thinking a top bar.
    near the house or a shed, no one would know what it is.
