    Yep, which was my point.
  2. Re: They say Americans are getting grumpy about the never ending rising prices these

    Re: spliting into MPs nucs

    One framers-two framers....Do you mean starting a nuc with one or two frames of brood?

    Re: Blueberries and EFB

    Joe, I was taught years ago that the EFB problem with bees on blueberries was because an acidic environment was created within the colony. Any truth to that?

    Re: Cell Builders and Brood Factories

    Not really. Most of the brood is removed to set up cell builders or make additional nucleus colonies. I treat once in the fall.

    I love this apiary. It's my office. During the cell building season, I'm here every day, sometimes for a few hours, sometimes all day. Because I work quietly, the wild turkeys and Whitetail deer have...

    Re: Cell Builders and Brood Factories

    Most are in 3 stories, because they get too strong for 2, and have lots of honey in the top two. Actually, I took off honey from them, so they were 4 or 5 stories tall in August

    Cell Builders and Brood Factories

    Took a panoramic of my cell building yard, just before wrapping up for winter. Yesterday was a workshop day with my county bee club, and we wrapped three of my apiaries. This one is so large that I...

    Re: Should the hives be combined??

    The cluster isn't 40s-50s. And, I don't mean drown them. Just enough to get some on them, but not so much it runs out the bottom entrance.
