  1. Re: Is it normal to not react to a sting?

    I generally don't have much of a reaction to my fingers, but my face blows up horribly.

    Re: How's the flow going for you?

    Right now all of my hives smell of Poplar. Black Locust was heavy but short, wish I would have had more drawn comb. But I'm getting some comb drawn on Poplar, they are working it pretty heavy, even...

    Re: mated queen

    Longer and fatter then a virgin. I got a swarm a few weeks back, we found the queen right away, but you could see she was small. Now a few weeks later she is laying and fatter and looks longer as...

    Re: Scout bees measuring my swarm trap

    Multiple swarms looking at the site. I've seen that this year on a hive in my yard. The scouts were very defensive to other bees.
  5. Re: Anyone ever use a trap out to raise queens?

    In this case I'm going to graft to a frame and stick that in the trap out.
  6. Anyone ever use a trap out to raise queens?

    I've raised queens last year (grafts with a starter and finisher) and plan on raising some in about a month, but I've been thinking about making just a few for some splits that I want to make in the...

    Re: Carniolan Honey Production

    But my understanding of the Buckfast is that it isn't really a defined subspecies, just a constantly evolving mutt. Again, not an expert of Brother Adam, but my understanding is that he continued to...

    I think I would get a smoker and hive tool before I got the pocket knife!

    Re: Carniolan Honey Production

    This year I overwintered a carni hive and I've had a swarm that I got a few years ago that I think has carni in it. In the middle of the winter both hives had ridiculously small clusters, probably...

    Re: Swarm commander: Does It Really Work?

    I'm only posting my observations. I have a lifetime supply of LGO, not of SC. So in the end if LGO is just as effective I'm still good.

    Re: Swarm commander: Does It Really Work?

    The hive that I sprayed the Swarm Commander in received a swarm from another hive in my yard. It was kind of funny watching them swarm all of 30 feet right into the box.

    Re: Michael Palmer Book?

    Michael could probably do just a book on how makes and overwinters nucs.

    Today a hive in my backyard swarmed and moved directly into anew empty hive with some comb in it on the other side of the yard. Roanoke, va

    I haven't been to Thelma's since they moved, but it is really good food!

    Re: Queen Mating

    A queen will fly a mile or two to a drone congregation area to mate. She doesn't mate with drones from the colony. Due to the way the genetics work with bees, that would be like a daughter mating...
  16. Re: Surprised I saw my queen today, and some drones

    Could be she is looking for a place to lay eggs. Is it a package? If so, usually there are drones in the package. Drones just mill around waiting for someone to feed them.
  17. Re: from grafting to selling strong nuc, time period?

    I would be thinking you would be selling the overwintered queen. Once you raise your round of queens you split the nuc, putting in the overwintered queen in the hive you sell, and giving the other...
  18. Re: So I made a deposit on 2 nucs back in November

    Mike, I got a few nucs last year from a guy in Eden, NC. They were ready about the third week of May. When we picked them up we (him and me) went into each hive and pulled out the queen, three frames...

    Re: Swarm commander: Does It Really Work?

    I have a few boxes in my yard that I put a couple sprays of Swarm Command in. No luck on them yet, but I noticed that I had no activity at all at a dead out with about a dozen bars of comb in it....

    Re: What to do with all these swarms??

    I like Fergus's idea. We have a 4-H club that has a bee keeper contingent as well, so that is a good place to donate.

    Where I live you have to be inspected to sell bees, even swarms. Not that...

    Got a call for a swarm, about the size of a pineapple (hived). While hiving it my son spotted another larger one in tree about 40 foot in the air. Hope they find a home!
