  1. Re: Lots of eggs, no capped brood, very little forage (low workforce)

    I thought I'd post about how this all worked out so far. I did reduce this hive to 1 box. I had added 2 frames of last years honey so they'd have food and there was some pollen in the hive too once...

    Re: Customer concern

  4. Re: Lots of eggs, no capped brood, very little forage (low workforce)

    First year beek myself, so I'm looking for answers on treating with OA vapor, too. My nuc supplier said the OA vapor will damage the queen and didn't recommend using it. Was he confusing OA with...
