    Re: need advice

    Re: Hornets killing my bees

    Dale, what you have is most likely European hornets, make some traps using the recipe provided by beemartin. It is always best to kill off the first few queens that show up at your hives in the...

  7. Re: Not seeing much discussion on harvests- how's everyone doing?

    I am more than ready for a decent spring flow and harvest, I haven't seen one for such a long time that I am forgetting what they are like. Next year has just got to be the year, all I have now are...
  8. Re: Not seeing much discussion on harvests- how's everyone doing?

    I am not far from cg3 and I am seeing the same thing he is, my hives gained their wintering weight by the end of our spring flow then it was over, we will see if the Fall flow brings anything.

    Re: Slow to build comb in honey supers

    Yeah, probably being too impatient, you may well be experiencing the summer dearth in your location as I am here in Southern Ohio. For me to get comb drawn it needs to be done in May during the heavy...

    Re: Noisy extractor motor

    Ian, assuming you are running 3 phase your motor may be running backwards, you will need to check the direction of motor rotation. If indeed your motor is turning the wrong direction all you need do...
  15. Re: How long after a swarm should you see eggs/brood

    There is no set way that they will look, it can vary, you could find any of the things you mentioned or none at all. If you found the queen then your hive should be okay. Check again at 3 weeks I am...
  16. Re: How long after a swarm should you see eggs/brood

    I had a nuc requeen and I found small larvae in a small patch about the size of your palm at 2 1/2 weeks. :)

    That type of scale would be a lot less bulky for sure, nice.
  18. Re: Why the tall stacks of supers, why not take some and process??

    There are probably as many reasons for leaving them stacked as there is for processing fewer of them throughout the season, both ways work so whatever floats your boat. I personally prefer less...

    Re: Buy queens?

    I agree with Wolfer, I had a nuc hive re-queen recently and I checked in on them at 2 1/2 weeks to find a very small palm sized patch of larvae. Give your new queen some time :).

    Re: best way to draw out medium super?

    Dr. Todd;
    swarming is an issue when you feed them fast and heavy, however if you keep the feeding pace at no more then 1 quart per day you should be okay, bear in mind the bees will fill every...

  24. Re: I weighed my hives today....not at all what I expected

    Mike, Assuming your hives are 10 frame double deeps I would think you would want them to weigh at least 150 pounds each including equipment weight. Perhaps someone from your locality with can chime...
  25. Re: I weighed my hives today....not at all what I expected

    Thanks Mike;
    This information is excellent insight into the 1 to 2 pound weight variance occurring between lifting the hive from the back only and then lifting and weighing the whole hive.

    Thanks...
