    Early Drones in the Northeast

    Is there a good way to get drones for mating, early in the season in the NE?

    With our short season, I'm looking to get any time advantage I can.

    My 4X4 nucs out of winter built into 4 deeps this year. I used them to make deep frames of honey in case I needed to feed frames for my new nucs before winter.

    I've heard good things about those kits Barry. This one is made from scratch. The only thing I didn't do was resaw the thin pieces for the sides, back, and soundboard.

    John,

    I made my first foray into sourdough last month. I began my starter Thanksgiving week and baked my first loafs with it last week. I'm not much of a baker, I'm more of a chef around the house, but I...

    Re: Double Nuc Swarm: Both Sides at once?

    It looks like this was just one side of the nuc, a regular swarm. The hive is left well provisioned with capped, and just about to be capped, queen cells.

    This one just got away from me I guess,...

    Re: Double Nuc Swarm: Both Sides at once?

    Michael,

    Weird in that there were many more bees outside than usual for this hive.

    Double Nuc Swarm: Both Sides at once?

    One of my double nucs swarmed. A side by side Palmer style, but, from the size of the cluster, it looks like both sides swarmed at once and joined up?

    Is this something that happens with these?

    I was more wondering about using them to make an escape board. I have way to many and was looking to re-purpose them.

    #6 Hardware Cloth

    Can bees get through #6 hardware cloth?

    I want to use it below the #5 in my pollen traps, for the pollen to fall through, but keep the bees out of the trapped pollen.
