  1. Re: red and orange liquid on the rear legs of a a bee or two

    Thanks for the compliment on my blog. I appreciate it!

    In answer to your question, I wanted to first clarify that I have TBHs, not Langs, so I don't add supers. The bees, as you know from your...
  2. Re: red and orange liquid on the rear legs of a a bee or two

    Re: New from Ct.

    An urban farm sounds amazing! That's so cool that you have rabbits, too! One day, I'd love to have some Flemish giants and some chickens, but I'm not quite ready for that yet. One step at a time.

    Re: Hi new here from SC

    Welcome to BeeSource! Definitely do lots of research before you get your bees. Also, most suppliers start taking orders in January, so be sure to get your order in early. I didn't know that and...

    Poll: Re: Is your Top Bar hive your first beehive?

    You mentioned building a lang/warre that fits your tbh bars. First of all, both of the other hives have standard dimensions, so you can't build those hives to fit your tbh. You would have to build...

    Re: how do I harvest

    That's cool! Thanks for posting. I love low-tech (and not having to store a lot of additional stuff that rarely gets used -- like escape boards).

  23. Re: Day 50: My TBH box is 90% full... I don't know what to do.

    True, but I'm not. I had a package, and not a swarm. He had nucs that were already established with brood and eggs.

    I've heard from many sources that bees build comb faster without foundation because they can build both sides of the comb at the same time. I totally believe that's true. I got packages for my TBHs 6...
