    Re: Broke-T Queens

    I've purchased queens from Johnny and would agree with you. Here's one of his queens:

    Re: I think we're barking up the wrong tree,

    I know, you can always claim you're the only one with bees in NYC which makes it a genetic bottleneck. And those temperatures on the roof, whew! Kids don't have school today?

    You've backed yourself into a corner, WLC. We all know you have Weaver bees now. If you fail to keep your bee numbers increasing without treating, we'll bring you back to this thread.

    Re: I think we're barking up the wrong tree,

    At this point, it's clear that WLC believes all of the US has influence from Weaver genetics. They've been spread far and wide and all beekeeping successes can be linked to them!

    Re: sudden cold spell

    I think you'll be the owner of dead hives. You should be feeding them where they are sitting right now.

    Re: I think we're barking up the wrong tree,

    I tried Beeweaver queens about 12 years ago. Queens were initially accepted and then about two to three weeks later found them dead on the ground in front of the hive. Pretty little dot on their back.

    Better be careful, you start beekeeping and you just might enjoy it more than painting!:D

    Re: sudden cold spell

    Don't put the comforter away just yet. It's been snowing here for the last 2 hours. Nothing you're going to do except have a smile on your face the next warm sunny day and bees are out flying again!

    Re: My first hive

    Next time you should remove the queen cage before dumping it and the bees into your awaiting hive. You don't want to risk injuring the egg layer! Have fun!

    Re: Pollen Patties

    Cam, do you typically feed patties late winter, early spring? I'm guessing if one does this, they get an early expansion in brood. I can see how that would then require one to continue feeding pollen...

    Mine have packed several combs worth of pollen. Plenty there for those rainy days.

    Actually, if you go to www.thebeerace.com, it's quite clear that Pennsylania is the biggest when it comes to American beerace.

    Re: I think we're barking up the wrong tree,

    Yet according to what you wrote, you explained it first (wrote your article), produced the data (tried it yourself and failed), but haven't been very subjected to intense scrutiny.

    And now the thread has turned another corner and we're discussing objectivity! At least that's my objective view.

    Re: My TF Trial is over - for the time being

    If you have something in English that is a true study, I'd love to read it. I find dead winter bees to be a poor specimen. There are many elements that can affect the dead bee.

    Fluvalinate in wax

    Joe mentions fluvalinate on the top of the list for chemicals found in wax. Better be careful where you get your wax from.
