    Re: Late swarm

    Just another update. The bee numbers are growing on this late swarm and they have a nice 6" diameter or so brood nest on 3 frames to produce some new bees to get through the winter. Bees cover 5-6...

    Re: Acebirds one hive

    Hey thanks Ace. I knew you could get the guys going again. I almost asked you to do something to save the tread. It was spiraling down to evolutionary thought hopelessness.

    Re: Please Stop...

    Good response.

    A good way to be a 'self proclaimed expert' is to look down your nose at a novice that tries to help with what they think they know. A genuine expert would also humbly, gently,...

    Re: Acebirds one hive

    Hmm........ That creates a few questions. Does the lady really need to cross the street? Is it the right street? Will she just go back where she was if you help her across? Can she handle being...

    Sure. I appreciate your investment in him, but it's a bit like helping an old lady across the street using a baseball bat.

    That's what I was thinking. If someone can't handle a particular simple question, it probably isn't meant for you to answer. There's all kinds here, which makes it more interesting. The one thing...

    Re: How to capture a misguided colony?

    V Bee, I know the stinger doesn't have to be left behind, it just didn't sound like honey bees to me in such a location. Interesting that a honeybee hive was found nearby.

    Re: How to capture a misguided colony?

    No stinger left behind? I would guess it's something other than honeybees.

    Re: Late swarm

    I checked the new late swarm a few days ago and found the queen and eggs. They are doing very well. Hopefully it's on the way to booming in the spring.

    Re: Lawnmower and bees...problem

    One thing I think of is that it sounds like the mower has become a known enemy since you mow close to the hive and arouse them sometimes. It probably was a particularly bad day and they may have...

    Re: Late swarm

    The bees look like they are settling in, coming and going and being busy. I will open them up after having them a week. Looking forward to that.

    Re: Late swarm

    Here's a couple photos from my new hive location and my property. I hope there's forage in all the red clover, etc. I don't really know for sure what kind of forage is here for them right now.

    Re: Late swarm

    I plan to either make a path/tunnel to allow them out in the winter, or carry them out when it's nice enough for flying. I prefer the first option since I did the second option last time and it's no...

    Thanks for the encouragement. I really don't have any resources to give them. I hope there's a little fall forage out there for them for a while. The bees have been clustered for at least 3 days...

    Late swarm

    I got a swarm today, which is very late in the year. It was 3 ft. off the ground and an easy catch. I would say somewhere around 3 pounds. I have enough drawn comb and will feed like crazy for a...

    I don't know for sure what made me think about beekeeping one winter, but I spent the winter studying beekeeping. One day in early summer the same year, I got out of my car at my shop and was...

    I agree with you John. Man is unique to all other created things. If you were to conclude that man should be like the bees and be 'efficient', then you would see brutality, slaughter, suffering,...
