    Re: Top bar nucs

    I just put 'Nuc Hive #1' into commission this past week. Here's a brief clip of them doing orientation flights (Dec 19th, 2014).

    I have four barrel hives currently in operation in addition to my normal top bar hives.

    I love them and all, but they can be a bit cumbersome to work - especially closing them up and/or...

    I guess too late for this one, I would have to assume.

    Wow, thanks so much for the kind words.

    I'll have to show my wife so she won't think
    I'm quite so insane and what I'm doing may
    be somewhat worthwhile.

    Here's a photo the homeowner texted me today, FWIW.

    Hey, as long as the party is on, in or near the new hive, that's all that matters to me.

    Beeman, thanks for the chuckle this morning. Your scenario is probably the most plausible though.

    Yes, I thought about all the other possible scenarios and they are all very possible. I'd love...

    It was only about 5-10 minutes after I had placed the cone on the wall and setup the hive that the (or a) queen flies in.

    I'm assuming it's a new queen flying back from a mating session, as...

  16. Re: Swarm removal from apartment wall - they just moved in (video)

    I know. And again, I had a vac. But I wasn't in a huge hurry. I know this sounds hippie-ish, but I just didn't feel like traumatizing them that much just to save a bit of time.

    Even if the vac...

    Inspection of one of my barrel hives

    Although the barrel hive I inspect in this video seems to go very smoothly, I have another one
    in my backyard that's bigger and badder. I probably won't be filming that one anytime...
  18. Re: Swarm removal from apartment wall - they just moved in (video)

    I had a bee vac on hand.

    I thought it would have been overkill for such a small swarm.

    The Honey B Gone worked perfectly.

    I've found myself using the bee vac a lot less lately for some...

  20. Re: I will help provide your fall/winter bee-removal entertainment from Florida (vide

    I do have a place to take them. But it really is a pain-in-behind to move them down there, especially since I don't have a truck.

    Would anyone like to come to Lakeland to help move them and I...
  21. Re: I will help provide your fall/winter bee-removal entertainment from Florida (vide

    My wife was laying out in the sun yesterday and some curious bees were checking her out, but not attacking her.

    She wants some hives to disappear.

    The party ALWAYS has to end.

    So I inspected this hive today and found that they had built several queen cells from the supplies I had given them from other hives, which obviously means they were queenless.

    By the way, I still haven't confirmed if this swarm has a queen or not. The small bit of comb I saw recently only had nectar, but that doesn't mean she's not there.
    If they don't have a...

    The feedback is much appreciated. I often get annoyed by my own voice in the videos, so I'm glad
    someone is enjoying my quacking-out information.
