    Re: trapout with no brood?

    I never got any bees from the tree. I placed the trap with no funnel to let them get used to it, but when I went back to check it after a couple of weeks, the bees were gone. I put the funnel in...

    Re: Dog and bee rescue

    The bees are not aggressive under normal circumstances. I took a start off of the barrel in June, and gave them an All American queen from R Weaver. It is now my strongest hive.

    Re: Moving hive in winter?

    I moved a hive about 1000 feet this spring. I filled up the entrance with grass and changed from a top entrance to a bottom entrance. Hundreds of bees went back to the old location. I put a box at...

    Re: cutout comb orientation

    Every time I checked the hive sine then, I only found drone brood. They were still alive but weak (only 3 frames of bees) in June. I needed the hardware for another cutout, so I dumped them out. They...

    Re: Queen cage candy hole or no?

    I never would have thought to puncture the candy except I saw it on several YouTube videos. I am glad I asked here.

    Re: Queen cage candy hole or no?

    I am going to introduce a queen to bees from a trapout. I guess I should leave the candy in tact.

    Queen cage candy hole or no?

    When introducing a queen, how important is it to poke a hole through the candy in the queen cage? Will it take them a lot longer to eat through the candy without the hole?

    Re: trapout with no brood?

    After I install the funnel, will the bees in the trap act queenless, or will they still feel part of the hive in the tree?

    Re: Dog and bee rescue

    The family has only been there a few months. They didn't know the bees were there. I need to go evaluate their temperament, and then I can decide to trap or remove.

    Re: Dog and bee rescue

    I haven't heard about the dogs yet. I will post when I hear about them. When I left, one of the dogs was fine, and the vet was hopeful about the other one.

    Re: trapout with no brood?

    I was planning a hogan style trapout, but I don't have any brood now. There are no bee clubs in my area and no other bee keepers in my county. I talked to a couple of guys an hour away, but they...

    Bee droppings

    Every time I put honey equipment out to be cleaned by the bees, I end up with lots of tiny dots on the equipment. Is this bee waste?

    Re: Sources for DIY extractor barrel

    You can cut the bottom off a 5 gal bucket and place it inside another one to make it taller. Just don't fill it past the bottom bucket.
