    What was happening

    http://youtu.be/ENMWEJqW2P4. Hope that works, the bees swarmed yesterday and I saw this today. Is it a second swarm? Only lasted 15-20 minutes and I never saw them cluster.

    Re: Need answer within 2 hours

    I got home and it was already getting dark, so I put the nucs on top of the hive and opened them so they could fly tomorrow and I think I'll give them tomorrow around 7pm.

    Re: Urgent? About hive stand w sbb

    So when the hive is stronger and the temp is stable ( June, July, aug.,) use sbb on open hive stand. Or put ply on stand so while sbb is on there is the ply 3"-4" below ond open to beard back?

    Re: Beginners Questions: Mulch below hives?

    I was hoping to leave grass around my hives. Thought I would cut as close as possible without making them mad and finishing up in a little darkness with a weed wacker. Is this a bad idea?
