    Re: Swarm catcher boxes

    I've had a terrible year, 1 for 36 boxes out. There were just not many swarms this year, but the one I did catch was a biggie.

  3. Re: Newspaper combine with 2 queen right hives?

    This is what Allen Dick had to say at honeybeeworld.com.

    On a nice day, I'd just stack them u and walk away. The less you interfere, the better the bees do.

    Mine were doing it the other week during a flow which is still going on. I caught it on video, it starts about the 1:30 mark of this link.

    Re: How did you get into beekeeping?

    Three years ago my wife and I started feeding some feral bees that visited our acreage in the spring. Then the following year we put out 5 swarm traps and caught 2 swarms. From that point on we were...

    Re: Putting topbar brood in medium langs.

    I used Phil Chandlers design so my top bars are only 17" long. The hive itself is 11" deep so mediums just won't work for me. This winter I'm going to build all Lang style traps so I won't have to...

    Re: Feeding in the fall?

    That's what I do, I feed a lot of feral bees besides my own and there are no commercial guys close. But because sugar is so cheap it doesn't bother me to feed a few extra ferals.

    Re: Putting topbar brood in medium langs.

    Because of the depth of top bar comb you will have to shorten it to fit in a medium frame. I just moved a swarm from my top bar trap to a Lang Deep. All I did was screw a 1"X3/8"X19-7/8" piece of...

    I started in Beekeeping by catching 2 late swarms. They were small and didn't make the winter, but what I learned from those bees I will always be thankful for. It taught me how to handle bees and...

    Re: Top Bar Langstroth Frankenstein?

    When I started Beekeeping I built top bar hives, so my 36 swarm traps are all mini TBH with 17" top bars 1-1/4" wide. Now that I've switched to Langs I just screw a 1" by 19-7/8" piece on the top bar...
