    Re: adding comb pieces

    yes they will tear them down and repair but really what are you trying to gain by this. Unless the comb is full of brood dont bother. Feed the new hives and they will build comb fast
  13. Re: Caught and installed swarm from my hive. Now what?

    I always have the best luck moving the new swarm to a new location. You can always move them back in a week or 2

    Re: Your favorite brew supply store

    Shipping is always a big expense so I look for flat rate. Northern Brewer and midwest brewing compete for customers so usually have deals. They both give me a 10% veterans discount.
