    Re: New swarm moved under existing hive

    So, do you think they'll move off the cluster by themselves once I put the debris board in or will I need to relocate them to the inside of the hive myself?

    New swarm moved under existing hive

    Several weeks ago I collected a swarm and hived it successfully. A few days later I collected another swarm, but did not hive it successfully; within a day, it flew away. I was told that putting a...

    Re: what to do with extra comb/frames

    Swarm traps...good idea. Not to get off topic too much, but what do you use for a bottom and top on your swarm trap? Also, where's the hole located, front center?

    Re: what to do with extra comb/frames

    I would have made nucs if I had bees to go in them. These are all from my hives that starved/froze over the winter.

    I'm changing all my equipment from 10 frame deeps to 8 frame mediums and going down to 4.9mm bees. I've reused most of the wooden ware by cutting it down to size, but what can I do with my leftover...

    Re: Did my bees starve?

    Thanks for all the replies so far, I really appreciate it.

    I had not done a mite count, nor any treatments, and no sign of a queen (dead or alive).

    From my best guess, it looks like they had...

    Did my bees starve?

    It was 60 degrees today so I decided to pop the top on my hives and see what was going on. 2 of my hives looked like the pic below; each hive having only 2 adjacent frames that looked like this. ...

    Re: Should I get Bees

    I have 7 hives that are 50' from my back deck and I haven't noticed an increase in bee activity on the deck at all. I'd say go for it.

    Re: Putting price on honey bottle

    All my honey is sold in the same size jar so I don't price them individually, I just post a sign nearby with the price per jar.
