    Re: bees scratching?

    They're washboarding. Mine don't get any paint off, but it is a type of scratching with the head down. I don't think it's any sign of entrance being too small.

    Re: Easy Outside feeder low death rate

    My bees would be scuba diving in that syrup real quick, also like Dave A. says promotes robbing. I know I can't always help my bees but I try to avoid doing them harm. Get a mason jar feeder or a one...

    Re: Missing queen in mini nuc.

    Make sure there's no Honey Bee Healthy in that syrup. Why the 1/4" wire cloth? Also your cat is going to learn the hard way about bees stinging!
  4. Re: Removed entrance reducer last night, lots of dead bees outside today

    Could be some robbing going on. I doubt built up dead bees behind your reducer. Maybe you could reduce the entrance with some screen so you would preserve the ventilation, or place a simple robbing...

    Re: 12 volt BEE hive ventilator

    I doubt more ventilation is beneficial to the bees... might be counterproductive.
  7. Re: EMERGENCY BEE HELP! THEY THINKING OF SWARMING??????????????????

    Well, it's possible yours or some other bees are looking for a home, or just looking around. Put some frames in that one hive and see what happens. Maybe they have confused the hive with a swarm...

    Re: Shoplifting

    I agree with larryh, and I didn't miss anything. I would not move the nuc and feed only with syrup, no honey. And let your bees back in their home if they haven't taken up with a new hive... Oh and...

    Re: Is this sealant safe...

    Don't use anything that is not listed as aquarium safe. That has an antifungal chemical which might disrupt the internal biological balance of the hive.

    Re: What kind of bee (or fly?) is this?

    Some flowers attract bees and some less sweet smelling flowers attract flies as pollinators.
    I thought family Syrphidae, many are bee mimics... or rather Tachinidae. Here's a Paradejeania...

    1. Ditch the HBH.
    2. No open feeding anywhere near your hives.

    To me it looks like orientation flights by new bees. I don't see any wrestling/biting on your landing board, make sure you're not accumulating dead bees below the landing board. Also I don't think a...

    Re: Can ya'll look at this?

    Looks normal to me. Washboarding and maybe some bees orienting. Washboarding is "like they are licking up honey but there is nothing that I put there". I've never seen this "waggle dance" and I don't...
