    Re: Well that was quick-Lost queen

    I wouldn't panic just yet. First the queen don't start laying as soon as she gets out of the cage and when she does start to lay it might be just a few. And with that many frames and eggs being very...

    Re: Double Nuc Question

    Do you mean a 10 frame box on top of the 2nd level of the double nuc. I use these double nucs and would like to better understand how to do this. Thanks.

    Re: Three dead hives...

    If you have a problem with the thought of treating bees then think of it as killing mites. If you have something in your hives that is going to kill the bees and do nothing that is mistreating bees...

    I don't think anyone mentioned this but don't try to mark or handle queens with gloves on.

    Re: Mating nuc question

    Do like Michael Palmer says and use 5 frame nucs. Those small boxes are just a mess. The only thing they are any good for are queen banks and not real good for that. Hive beetles like them and other...

    Re: Winter's Here to Stay

    On the far side it would be 3/4 inch. I see what you mean that they would build comb in that area. If I put excluder on the other side that would prevent that. The reason I did it that way is I...

    Re: Uncapping roller...do they work?

    It works very well if you lightly roll it over the honey. If you push down hard it plugs up like the guy said.

    Re: Double Mating Nuc Boxes

    The queen excluder keeps the queen out of the feeder so she won't drown. The sides of the feeder has a texture that the bees are able to walk on and not fall in the syrup.

    Re: Nuc boxes

    You could shave 1/8 inch off the end bars of the frames and 5 will fit then. That's what folks do when they run 11 frames in a 10 frame brood box and that's what I do in my 4 frame nucs.

    It sounds like its just cold. Let it sit on the table and get room temp and it should get softer.
