    Love his videos and have learned so much from him! He is probably the reason that I took the plunge and bought my first bees!

    I still want to travel up to Lula and meet him! Might as well buy some...

    Re: Queen laying in supers

    Joseph gave some really good advice.

    One thing that you can do to find your queen is use the excluder. Put it directly above your deep in the current configuration, with your supers on top. Wait a...

    Re: when can i split

    You can split, if you have a good flow or are willing to feed. How good are you at finding the eggs or just hatched larvae?

    Are you planning on buying a queen to add to the split or are you...

    Re: Queen right hive going nowhere

    Sounds like you need a new queen. If you have a frame of eggs to add you can move the queen and a frame or two of bees into a nuc. Then add the frame with eggs in your hive and they can make a new...

    Re: Queen right hive going nowhere

    How many bees are in the hive with the queen? If they don't have enough to cover more brood, then she won't lay there. I had a hive that over-wintered, but had a small amount of bees. I added some...

    Re: Test grafts

    I believe that those are for mating nucs. Some partition a 10 frame deep to hold four queen cells for mating.

    I have some of the same hives. I just center them up and leave the extra space on the outside. I may shave some frames down to have 9 frames in there with a little wiggle room. If there is not enough...

    Re: First inspection

    Okay, that makes perfect sense. It seems that you could make contact with your supplier and let them know what you have/haven't found in the hive. It may help you in case you do have a queen issue.

    How long has the nuc been installed? did you install it into a 10 frame hive? It was really hard for me to spot the queen at first, not to mention eggs! Looking for the smaller wet brood may be an...

  24. Re: After a Split, How long should it take a Queen to start laying?

    Sounds about right, I was going to say 2 to 3 weeks. I would leave the new queen alone for two weeks or so.

    Re: what are they doing

    Sounds normal. Bees just do that from time to time. They even walk back and forth kinda like a little dance, at times.
