You're my hero!
I'd like to do a split but have no experience. For something that everyone says is easy, trepidation sure has set in me.
I will feed feed feed after the split, but am I too late to do it in Mid...
Mistakes happen, but I wanted to give the manager a chance to explain/apologize. He did not do well at either.
I would not trust Trugreen. Look what they did at my Apiary.
Sunny 68 degrees, wind speeds at 10mph. 9:30 AM
I heard a noise at my door earlier. A note was left that Trugreen had just treated my lawn. I read the note, expecting to find a scheduled...
How do you know that she's a virgin?
About 3 lbs of bees in another Lilac tree, seven feet off the ground.

About four or five pounds of bees, three foot off the ground in a lilac tree.
My 5 hives are within flying range of over 250 other hives.
All is well.
I would have liked to see your product, but as soon as the page loaded, annoying music started and I quickly clicked out.
We all have music on our computers. If we want to listen to something, we...
Why do I see telescoping covers covered in tin when the migratory covers I see are simply wood?
Why the tin?
I think she should be out of the cage by now.
Did your queen cage come with a cork or a piece of candy? If corked, did you remember to pull it and stick in a marshmallow or some sort of candy?...
I flipped one of mine today. The Top box was full of bees, some brood, some honey and pollen.
The bottom had mostly empty comb with a few frames toward the edges harboring honey stores.
Welcome to beekeeping!
Well, This is cool.
How important is it to rotate my two deeps?
I know about a wild colony in a nearby oak tree and I don't think their combs have ever been rotated. :)
Is this just a swarm...
I'm in Genesee County. If I can help, I will.
Still searching for an opinion -
I Winter my 10 frame hives with two deeps. With this nuc setup, which is no different than any other package that I installed, will two deep 5 frame boxes be my...
This was a new queen with a few bees stolen from three other new packages.
I bought a queen expecting to need her, only to find that I didn't. So I used her and a few of the stolen bees. We'll see...
I decided to experiment with a 5 frame deep nuc and a package of bees. My thought is to leave them in the 5 frame setup and expand upward.
What's your opinion on adding deeps? My other hives are...
I have no shortage of honey so I could leave a medium on without a problem, just to make certain that they have enough stores.
If I do that, what the heck do I do in the Spring if I find the queen...
I went from crush and strain to an extractor and a heat knife.
I HATED the heat knife.
I tried the heat gun method and I do not foresee going back to the knife!
The frames that I did were new, but...
I removed two supers yesterday and wondered the exact same thing.
I have more bees than I've ever had.
Buy the glue by the gallon.
same stuff used by catchmaster.
Interesting that you should mention yeast and bread.
Everyone associates smells just a little differently. My hives throughout the summer give me a hint of yeast or bread dough.
Right now, with...
I would not suggest using the firearm, as you don't seem to be real familiar with them.
Both of the rifles you described are probably single shot. The one with the MAGAZINE may be a semi-auto, but...
