    Re: Queen Introduction

    So the first queen in this video wasn't accepted. I split the hive down single deeps, added several frames of brood along with lots of nurses and a couple Sunkist queens.

    These ladies were so...

    Re: Queen Introduction

    Thanks Michael! That actually solves a lot of questions, bees from the earlier queen introduction were difficult to move.

    Re: Queen Introduction

    I suppose I can't tell the difference between chewing on the cage and trying to feed the queen just yet.

    I'm going to move the splits to a cotton field about 5 miles away, where it is in bloom. ...

    Re: Kudzu and Bees

    I'm really interested in watching this thread. Those of us in the south could have back-to-back bumper crop years on this wretched plant.

    Although I hate kudzu, you have to admire the tenacity of...

    Re: Queen Introduction

    After 8 days of the queen being released from her cage, I see no new eggs, larvae, or capped brood. I'm assuming that she didn't take. I have two spare queens and will break the double-deep down...

    Re: Slimed! Now what?

    Kick the top off a fire ant mound and set the boxes and frames on top. You have fireants in Missouri, correct?

    I have to credit Robert Russell on teaching me that tip.

    Re: Queen Introduction

    Hey Robert!

    I did go ahead and stick the cage in the hive right after I turned the camera off. I'm not sure if I messed up or not, but I also added a clean frame of open brood (no bees attached)...

    My apologies, I forgot that I did add a frame of open brood on June 26. They made an emergency queen cell, but never capped it. This frame of brood may have eliminated any laying workers at the...

    Re: Ants and my hives

    I agree with Timer on this one. Use AMDRO granules (active ingredient is fipronil (sp?))and it should take care of your ant problem. Wear gloves and spread it by hand in approx. 10 ft diameter,...

    Re: What are Buckfast bees?

    I have a colony of Russell's Buckfast. I started the hive as a split with a Buckfast queen added. They don't seem too bad thus far, they got a little angry when I transferred them to a full size...

    Re: Salvaging and Storing Damaged Frames

    Try putting the slimed frames on a fire-ant bed (if you have them in NC), they will pick them clean! They won't do much for cleaning up the webbing from wax moth damange, but they will eat the WM...

    Is that not the queen in the middle picture? Almost dead center of the picture.

    My eyes may be playing tricks on me, but she looks longer than the rest.

    I have been dealing with one queenless hive for some time now.

    I pulled a frame of brood and eggs from another hive and put in the QL hive (just as described in Mr. Bush's article). After 5 weeks...
