  1. Re: Just did 1st split ever! 50/50. Nervous.

    Why do you think that the queen would be killed by bees of her own colony?

    This argument doesn't seem to be well thought out to me...

    Re: My medium frame Ulster Observation Hive

    I'm not sure. When I have the time I'll check to see if I have any pictures.




    Again, it won't be right away, but I'll take a picture of the dowels with the hanger bolts and try to get a...

    Re: What in the world are they doing?

    Who knows? I would certainly not be shaking any bees anywhere. It would have been interesting to know which queen they ultimately ended up with. But as you said, the queens aren't marked.

    I have removed the supports for the hood, and slid the rolled up hood into one of the sleeves for machine washing.

    Re: Screws or Nails?

    Really?

    From "your experience" you've decided that nails are more secure or are you simply stating (in a brief manner) that you use nails?

    Re: Weak hive...new what?

    I would give a frame with eggs and swap positions of the hives.
  18. Re: Spring feeding in the north, When and how?

    When the entrance is noticeably crowded I would open it up more.

    In general, I always have my inner covers notch down... Year round.

    Re: Screws or Nails?

    Use screws with TiteBond II or III glue....

    I seal over the exposed end grain with TiteBond as well. Same for the heads of fasteners.

    The local supplier is selling fondant for $40 a block.
  21. Re: Spring feeding in the north, When and how?

    After two years of trying out the sugar-in-the-bag, over the inner cover, as an "insurance" feed source I wouldn't recommend it. Baker's Fondant is much more attractive to the bees...
