    Re: Quilts and Candyboards

    Just a reminder that the Maine bee inspector did a study that indicated that the Mountain Camp method might cause high nosema counts. My experience is that bees winter better with candy boards, sugar...

    make sure there are a couple of honey frames over the cluster. Put the sugar blocks on the top bars. You'll need to check them a couple time this winter. You should be ok - Vancouver doesn't have...

    Re: Consolidated hives to 3 mediums today...

    i avoid pollen sub during the winter. Too many days with no flight in our area. I believe it contributes to dysentery. Bees don't need much pollen in the winter. Put that patty on in March or April....

    Has not been my experience. I have a yard at an organic farm and I can't use Roundup there. I have other yards that I spray Roundup to control weeds along the fence rows and in front of the hives....

    Re: Fall feeders

    I get better winter survival with fondant or candy boards than I do with sugar. I think the sugar gets inverted with those methods and the bees do better. Just my experience. Also, a study reported...

  10. Re: Experience with liquid Sevin dust and roundup

    I used the 365 roundup this year. It kills everything so I am careful where I spray. Really great on the electric fence rows, leaves a nice line for the fence that doesn't short out as easily. I also...
  11. Re: Experience with liquid Sevin dust and roundup

    Re: Glenn Apiaries - Pol-Line queens

    I'm only running around 40 with Pol-Line or supersedures of a Pol-Line right now. Only had one swarm this year. I don't use excluders and run 2 deep brood boxes with them. Very happy with them.
  16. Re: workers tossing dead greyish bees out of hive - sign of starvation or??

    saw lots of drone brood in front of the hives this morning. Lots of dead drones in the grass a little further out. It's that time of the year.

    purple loosestrife is in full bloom and there seems to be much more around this year [maybe the cold winter killed the bugs that attack it]. Goldenrod is just blooming and Japanese bamboo is budded....

    Re: Combining Hives

    If there is a flow I don't bother with the newspaper. I just combined 2 weak nucs this afternoon, just put on on top of the other. Bees will sort it out.
