    Question

    On the 19th I installed a hive, I was looking at the hive this morning and the rubber band that was holding the queen was hanging out of the hive. Is that a problem? If so, what should I do?

    I went to Brushy Mountain Bee Farm in PA yesterday and went to their demonstration and picked up my bees. It was a very good installation demonstration. So exciting!!! :)

    Swarm INSIDE tree (with pics)

    I have a swarm of bees inside a tree in my yard. My Dad talked to a guy who said that it would be really hard to get them out of the tree. Is there anyway I can lure them out? Perhaps putting a hive...

    Honey Bee Healthy ?

    What do you all think about it? I heard when I get my packaged bees that I can spray this on them and the queen and let the queen loose write then. Is this true?

    Re: Beginner's Supplies?

    Oh, I was wondering... If I varnish the hive, will that harm the bees? (I won't be getting the bees until May 19th.)

    Just Getting Started

    Hello, I’m new to beekeeping (actually getting started next month). I heard that I can use 3 medium supers, because they’re not as heavy as the deeps, and therefore would be easier on my back – will...
