    Feed 2:1 sugar:water syrup and pollen patties to build up stores for winter.

    Thanks. I needed to know the ratio. Doing it tonight.
  2. Comb hanging from topcover

    I had a big enough space for the bees to hang two lobes off the top cover where the queen must be laying eggs.

    Should I leave them there for the winter?

    Also, I don't see any pollen cells. I...

    wriggling abdomen

    This is not a thread about Britney Spears.

    I can usually see bees off by themselves contorting their abdomen in a circular motion. They OK? Any ideas about what they are doing. It looks bad and...

    So what do you think. If I live in an area where the temperature will usually range 20's to 30's for a large part of the winter will 2 do or (my guess) 4 frames of pollen?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the advice.

    "Queen-right" to me means she's alive. That's it I assume, true?

    Any rules of thumb on how to gauge if they have enough pollen? If they don't have enough, how much...

    48 miles is spitting-distance. If I had a beek club, I would pass it on to you. I am sure others can give you several leads. Thanks for the tip about sugar.

    It's Autumn. Now what?

    One small hive

  10. Kelly Bees (Kelley?) still good seller

    They are prompt in my experience with them and shipped some equipment I needed in 2 days. Simple stuff: hive tool and a screened bottom board with a sloped entrance.

    I have had 2 out of 2 good business dealings with Kelly Bee,too. In fact, they did me an unasked favor and shipped me an order when I was not able to make a pick up for free. :D

    Really, My hive is just starting to come to life

    I was queenless (except for some failed supercedures) till June 5. She is just now starting to build up. I only have 4 frames drawn out. I'll expect I'll be keeping them on life support over the...

    Laughed out loud

    Thanks CP

    We need a myth debunker thread. You all had a thread on here for some mystic new age mist to spray around hives to cancel out karma from the colony. Great stuff.

    You shouldn't worry about the wash-boarding then RMH. The big wigs are saying we have bored bees.

    What are they doing?

    RMH, Are the bees "washboarding" or walking in a horseshoe?

    I think you're asking if the Styrofoam hive is making your bees washboard. Is that your question RMH?

    Evidence that washboarding is due to new bees

    Since I jump to many conclusions which are later debunked I'll be happy to make a leap of judgment.

    I introduced a new queen to my dying hive on May 31st. Could these be brand new baby girls...

    Yeah, the hive is weak. When it starts looking crowded I'll make a larger entrance. Good observation and I thought some wise soul would see it. Kudos.
