    Re: Using wild, established colony?

    I second what others have said about letting them alone, and add that I would go foundationless with the hives you put them in, or go with the 4.9 small cell foundation for the swarms that you catch...

    Re: how close do you sit next to hive?

    a couple feet. I either set up a folding chair or if I'm lazy I just sit down on the railroad tie next to them. I always sit off to the side at my pet hive, cause they seem to like to come straight...

    Re: My bees are gone!

    Did you inspect inside the hives at all since you installed them?? 3 frames isnt much in that amount of time. Maybe your queen died and they dwindled away, but you should have seen this happening. ...

    I would look into what permits you would need to keep this bobcat. I think it's awesome and would hate for wco's to come and take him/her away. It may be costly keeping a wildcat so that would be...
