    Re: 2 new packages - not queened right?

    I'm glad that this is helping. Since I have one with a bunch of queen cells that was a package that is queenless now I must have though that you had the same thing happen. I'm glad that jbraun read...

    Re: 2 new packages - not queened right?

    Oh, I didn't read it correctly. There is a queen in hive one still. Great point jbraun! Yes if you cage that queen and re introduce her to the queenless hive that would be a solution. The hive with...

    Re: 2 new packages - not queened right?

    If you have wax frames you could cut one of the queen cells off of the frame that has several of them and attach it into the queenless hive very carefully. That queen cell should re queen the...
  4. Re: Don't ever get to big for your britches or count your chickens before they hatch

    Lauri, what you showed in your picture is what I was trying to convey. I was told to put a queen excluder at the bottom of the empty box then shake some bees from frames into it. Incase there is a...

    Re: epipens?

    My wife got some a while back. She just asked her doctor. The insurance is different now so she said that she doesn't think it is covered anymore but if she was willing to pay for it the doctor would...
  6. Re: Help! Neighbours bees attracted to our Ipe decking

    Tillyandroo, they make beesuits for kids. Maybe this was meant to happen so that your son can meet the neighbor beekeeper and check out the bees up close and see how awesome they are. Honeybees are...
  7. Re: Help! Neighbours bees attracted to our Ipe decking

    I highly doubt that those bees will sting anybody unless you stepped on them barefoot. I am around bees quite often and don't get stung unless I am working in the hives. Cleaning the wood with...

    Re: Installed package. Pain ensued! Help

    Hopefully your package install will pan out well and when young bees begin emerging they will be very pleasant.
  10. Re: Pennsylvania: first bee scouting or just curious?

    Thanks! It would be nice. The bees were very active today. It was nice to see and hear them all around:)
  11. Re: Don't ever get to big for your britches or count your chickens before they hatch

    I learned a trick to prevent that from an awesome beekeeper but I haven't actually tried it yet. You put a queen excluder over the top of the cell starter that you shake the bees into. Maybe this...
  12. Re: Pennsylvania: first bee scouting or just curious?

    Awesome. I need to set up some swarm traps also. Things are finally looking good weather wise. May is definitely the month for swarms here in PA
    I hope that you catch some bees!
  13. Re: Robbing from old hive/package install

    A couple of days before the packages come I would take a break from leaving frames around for the bees to rob.

    Now that you have that hive closed off the bees will get over robbing it. Once you...

    Re: Drones Everywhere

    This looks super healthy to me. There is plenty of worker brood and drone cells. That is a sign that they are doing really well and may even be planning to swarm not too long from now. I would guess...

    Re: Beetle larvae

    I keep a torch on hand when working my bees and when I see that larvae around the bottom boards and what not I blaze it with a torch. I also kill any that drop around the hive with the torch or just...

    Re: Orientation or Robbing (again)

    I had a hive getting robbed like crazy last year because there was a crack in the box that I didn't catch when I was feeding so I moved it like 15 feet and made the entrance to the size of one bee...
  17. Re: Hive set up correct for new package arriving?

    The second box is used to make space for certain types of feeders that sit above the bottom box. If you are using a hive top feeder than you can start the package in a single box with the hive top...

    Your not alone Woodsy. Several of my friends and I lost bees this year too.

    Today I moved some candy over and gave my remaining hives a mason jar of syrup each. The weather is fluctuating quite a...

    Re: Weather for mating flight

    As long as there are some days for the bees to fly and there are drones I think it will be fine. I had some cells that I moved when it was freezing in May and the take was not that great but some...
