    Re: Swarm management in urban hives

    Join a local bee club, there are always members looking for bees if and when you have a swarm, if you keep your bees alive you will have a swarm one day.

    Re: Add another super?

    Ask 10 beekeepers get 8 different answers. This late in year with foundation less frames, I would leave them alone, they'll never draw them out and fill.
  3. Re: Greenbeehive.com anyone buy from them in past.

    I purchased from them before, boxes are well made, I have some 4 years old and are as good now as the first day I used. I really like their covers, heavy enough so wind cannot blow off.

    I would not split this late in season unless you can purchase a mated queen. In South Carolina they will not need that much honey to carry over winter, I would extract some of the honey, two deeps...

    Re: Backfilling

    Is cup on bottom of frame ? I would not consider only one queen cell swarm prep. They may be building just in case they need to replace the queen. They often build but may not use.

    Re: When do you stop adding supers........

    I agree with Vance, why not extract as they go? Start selling honey now, place supers right back on hives. Spreads out the work for you and produces you the chance to get honey to customers before...
  11. Re: What? Swarm left hive, tornadoed around, then went BACK IN. What?

    The queen was not with them, they will swarm again real soon
  12. Re: How do I encourage a new hive to expand into the second super?

    Not sure I would move brood unless there is lots of brood, but I would move a couple of drawn frames up to encourage them to move up.

    Re: straining honey

    A paint strainer is just fine, that is always what I use. Forcing thru may cause air bubbles , but the paint strainer will not make the honey taste strange, that is unles it was already used on paint.
