    Re: Colony update here in Pa

    I also have had a good year for honey. I extract a few times during the season to get seasonal honey. I have 3 big hives now from 4 frame NUCS new this past spring, and they gave us well over 300...

    Not taking syrup

    A question regarding feeding: I had made a split from a Buckfast hive earlier in the late spring with a supercedure cell. The cell hatched, queen mated and was laying just OK, not great. They were...

    Re: NYS over wintered nucs

    We people are so imperfect and have such high expectations of others; there is always an exception, always a "but". I personally don't care for "buts", but they are always there. Some excuses "buts"...

    Re: NYS over wintered nucs

    Thanks Mark, it sounds like BetterBee would be good if they have M.Palmers bees. Bob B. sounds good also being that he has Russians. I'll ask on the Facebook page of EPSHA; I like to see what is out...

    Re: New Bees

    Speaking from my own experience, which isn't much, I took to reading and, yes, classes, getting to know and talk with other local Beekeepers. We just started a club, very informal, just to brain...
  16. Re: weak colony, something amber in a few cells

    Yes, pollen/ bee bread is good...if you don't have a queen, the bees will make a queen with new eggs laid by a queen...workers should not lay eggs or you will have a laying worker hive which will be...
