    Re: Could there be two colonies in this wall?

    Re: How's the flow going for you?

    Northwest Louisiana is terrible. Too wet. Last year's spring flow was terrible because of the long winter.

    Re: Swarm commander: Does It Really Work?

    When I use LGO and go to hang a box this time of year, the bees are streaming through the entrance before I get it hung. I like LGO.

    Re: Brushy ventilated jackets?

    I've had one for a few weeks and like it. It's light and, paired with the zip-on clear vue veil, it's a good combination. The fabric is thick enough that you will NOT be stung through it. I worked a...

    If not, why?

    I have read that some put the queen cell in as soon as the bees, pollen, and nectar are inserted and I have read that some make it up 24 hours ahead. What do you do and why?
  16. Re: This is what a queen that produces MEAN bees looks like.

    The other five hives at that bee yard are very gentle, and their queens mated in the same area.
  17. This is what a queen that produces MEAN bees looks like.

    We finally decided a hive was too hot and needed to be requeened. About three weeks ago, we put queen excluders between the boxes. Two weeks after that, we moved the box with the queen fifty yards...

    Re: Honey Container Prices

    Thanks, SilverBack. I contacted Dahletch and can get the same number of containers and lids with caps and shipping for .38. That's so much less expensive than either Sailor or Gamble.
