    Re: Good Luck...Bad Luck

    Maybe you could have taken a bar of brood from the strong hive and put it in the slow hive to see if that would stimulate the bees into action.

    Re: It rained in my hives....are bee's ok?

    A little rain won't Kill 'em. If it got heavy on the brood then their might me some brood death but with it being hot I don't think it will hurt them that much.

    Re: Old BSA Beekeeping Merit Badge Book

    Thanks. If someone comes across one I'd like to at least have a xerox of it. I'll keep checking ebay but those are being bid on by collectors and get very expensive sometimes.

    Without digging through and actually laying eyes on the queen, its hard to guess at this point.

    Re: Moving Hives

    The old 3 feet or 3 miles rule is not set in stone.

    Typically you should always move the hives at night after all the bees are in.

    Re: Let's stop Billy!!!

    Watching the show... he don't know what kind of bees they are either. Sort of a doofus. Some of the stuff he does on the show is totally RETARDED. But I guess it pays his bills.

    Re: moveing hive

    Move it at least 3 miles for a couple of days then move it to where you want it. I learned that a mile is not enough distance. Had to move the hive back to get all the bees back in.
