    Re: Collecting cool apiary photos - care to add?

    Wow, that's a lotta hives!
  3. Re: Dead out came back to life once it warmed up

    LOLOL!
  4. Re: Dead out came back to life once it warmed up

    Ditto that. Took the one day above freezing temps opportunity yesterday to make sure the sugar blocks were still okay, which they were, but 4 hives looked alive, one looked dead. I didn't see it, I...
  5. Re: Dead out came back to life once it warmed up

    LOL!
  6. Re: Anyone know when queen will start laying in New England?

    Early spring? We'll be lucky if we have a spring at all.
  7. Re: Dead out came back to life once it warmed up

    I wonder how many "dead" hives have been tossed when really they were just "dormant". Kind of scary.

    I did reduce the size of some of my hives in late fall, brought in the excess boxes, assumed...
  8. Re: Anyone know when queen will start laying in New England?

    Amazing to think the colony can take care of brood when they must be clustered like crazy. It's supposed to be in the negatives tonight & tomorrow night.
  9. Re: Anyone know when queen will start laying in New England?

    Wow. Really? I may have eggs in my hives as we speak then. I hope they have their pollen stores okay, I did put winter pollen patties in there so hope that suffices.

    How exciting that there may be...
  10. Re: Anyone know when queen will start laying in New England?

    That works out great then! Just when the queen is laying, pollen is available.

    From online, I'm seeing maple flow is usually by end of February here, so just a couple more weeks. I guess it would...

    I see you're getting delusional too. There will be a new category in the mental health DSM for New Englanders.
  12. Re: Anyone know when queen will start laying in New England?

    4 ft. is a vicious rumor designed to keep people away. :D I'd say there's no more than 3 ft. out there, tops.

    So the queens don't lay if the snow levels are too high? :)

    Aha. Another month? Is...
  13. Anyone know when queen will start laying in New England?

    I can't remember the last time it got up to freezing, so I'm not interested in peeking in there, and it keeps snowing one storm after the next, I don't know when I'll finally be able to lift the lids...
  14. Re: Dead out came back to life once it warmed up

    Too funny! Bees' Near Death Experience. Makes you think twice about giving up on your hive.
  15. Re: Is 1.5 miles to a pond too far for a bee water source?

    :D Yeah, but it can get really dry here in summer. At least above ground.
  16. Re: Is 1.5 miles to a pond too far for a bee water source?

    Thank you, Lauri! I'm in the market, I had an Olympus but it got attacked by conditioner in my luggage and never worked after that. Apparently oily things kill electronics.

    Radar, thanks for the...
  17. Re: Is 1.5 miles to a pond too far for a bee water source?

    Once again, stunning clarity in that photo Lauri. I have to ask you again - what kind of camera do you use?

    I have an above-ground pool here in the yard, but for some reason, the bees have never...
  18. Re: Is 1.5 miles to a pond too far for a bee water source?

    I'm not seeing how the cotton towel would work, without constant readjustment to water level? Seems if you let it sink too deeply, the bees will drown anyway, and if you keep is somewhat taut, water...
  19. Re: Is 1.5 miles to a pond too far for a bee water source?

    Good to know. I have a a plastic pan with rocks in it they can stand on. Floating things seem to get waterlogged and sink too far down, but maybe I haven't found the right type of floaties yet. As it...
  20. Re: Is 1.5 miles to a pond too far for a bee water source?

    Enj. - I have 2 stacked hives with double screen boards, and so far they are working, but the proof is in the pudding in March, so I'm not bragging yet. I won't stack again though - too difficult to...
  21. Re: Is 1.5 miles to a pond too far for a bee water source?

    Corn in Kansas? Say it isn't so...

    :D
  22. Re: Is 1.5 miles to a pond too far for a bee water source?

    Good point, Enj. The closer the water supply, the easier on them. Last summer they always went to my water pan which is right near their hives, so they must prefer that over going the distance. I...
  23. Is 1.5 miles to a pond too far for a bee water source?

    I just realized there's a pond about 1 to 1.5 miles as the crow flies from my house. I put water out for my bees in the summer, but I wonder if that's too far to expect them to go if they run out of...

    Re: Worst mistake of 2014.

    Very scary, Hiwire, even upside down.

    I just had my annual slip on the ice so don't feel alone. Thank goodness bodies are fairly good at healing.
