    How long to bees live?

    How long do bees live? How long will the queen live? If I re-queen an aggressive hive, how long does it take to "breed out" the aggressiveness?

    Re: Aggressive Bees in an Old Hive

    Great idea Peter. Between waiting until spring, using the wire, splitting the boxes and re-queening each, I have a very good plan for the spring for this hive. Thanks again everyone!

    This farm is not that far from where I live, probably less than two hours. I looked at the website, and it doesn't appear that there has been much activity on it since last March. Regardless, I will...

    Re: Aggressive Bees in an Old Hive

    I did use smoke. Further, it is still so warm here that I didn't think that opening the box would be an issue. I really don't want to lose this hive, so I will wait until next late spring when we are...
