    @Ian
    You will have many dead bees on the floor. Bees begin to crawl at about 8°C under the cluster. I am not sure. Maybe it was 7°C.

    Re: Using entrance reducers when indoor wintering

    @JodieToadie
    It is good to be able to protect an apiary.
    I would like to know more about forces that stimulate change or progress within a system. That's all.

    Re: Using entrance reducers when indoor wintering

    "No entrance reducer = much more hive activity and looser cluster."



    The hives are so near to each other. Without entrance reducer the neighboring bees stimulate each other and feel annoyed.

    Re: Noisy extractor motor

    Is it a capacitor induction motor ? Electrolytes in these capacitors change over the time and they lose their ability to shift the phase.

    Re: Honey % questions

    The magic 18.6%.

    You read 81.4 % on the Brix-Scale of a sugar refractometer.
    Then you need to do math: 100% - 81.4%.
    You get 18.6%.

    Are you aware that it is not 18.6% on the...

    Apparently, the inner cover is the coldest place in your hive.
    Why not the bottom board in the vicinity of the entrance?

  25. Re: Bees stopped building comb in TBH--should I worry?

    Once they are hatched out, they will look for open honey cells.
    These young bees will compete for food with the older bees. Older bees are stronger. It is good to have fresh nectar coming in.
