    Re: Do I have a Problem?

    Bees normally build a few, pretty much any hive you look in will have a few empty queen cell cups, they are of no concern unless they contain an egg or larva.

    Re: Do I have a Problem?

    They are unlikely to have laying workers in only 7 days. You can also take comfort that new queens sometimes lay a bit funny (2 eggs etc) if they are short of room.

    All you can do is wait till the...

    Re: Package yesterday, Hive invasion today

    Well thanks for explaining it.

    My remark though, was not condescending at all you have taken it way off the mark. It was meant to bluntly present to you the reality of what will happen if you do...

    Although will say, taking the syrup out was the correct thing to do, if there is nothing for the robbers, the robbing will stop. There is some chance the hive will survive. For the next attempt at...

    Re: Opinions/Advice on Removal

    Unless the entrances are very restricted I would say 3 different colonies, it would be highly unusual for bees to walk from one end of the house to the other.

    Re: Native American Honey Bees

    OK didn't read the whole thing.

    The other ones it claims they come from a mine, so it could be feasible they keep an eye out for anything with insects in them and they are genuine fossils.

    Other than argue just what that fossil was, how old it is, and when they died out, there is another argument.

    I am absolutely positive, that had social honeybees existed in the US within the last...

    This is an interesting view, and one that is quite common.

    Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow" - Flow Hive

    OK well now the penny drops why no commercial beekeepers on Beesource think it will fly commercially.

    There's a few issues getting top bar hives to work supers. Please post a pic of it with the lid off (showing the top bars) so if it's not going to work people can give suggestions.
