    Re: Unusual behavior?

    I thought that they were marking their turf.
    I found this link on it.

    Re: Unusual behavior?

    I could be wrong but I think they do it to mark the hive with their scent and I notice that they are usually filling the gaps with propolis when they do that as well.

    Re: Are these swarm cells?

    I only see capped drone cells and worker cells. I think you are okay. The queen cells will look more exaggerated and stick out like the tip of your pinky sticking out.

    Re: Salt Blocks for Bee's?

    I was chain sawing wood this weekend and bees kept coming to the fresh cut logs and gathering something from that. I guess the moisture or sap. It was notable how that interested them. I forgot about...

    Re: What is chewing on my hive?

    I thought about this today at work :). I am intrigued by the mystery:) When the bees get stronger whatever it is may be in for a surprise.

    Re: suprise for my fiancee

    This is an exciting read. I think if the two of you get suits and go into it together on some level that could be exciting for the both of you. Sometimes it is nice to work on the bees alone but it...
  12. Re: Any problem with soybean oil in beetle trap

    I don't think it will matter because the bees won't get to it.
  13. Re: Electric Heat Gun for "burning" out used hives?

    This is me taking that Harbor Freight torch to a Queen Excluder :) I got a bunch of used stuff when I started. Bee careful with that torch

    I probably won't even use the excluder but I have...

    Re: smoker question

    The eye hook for the chain and cork is a good idea. I need to add that to mine. Good tip Riverderwent!

    Re: smoker question

    I have taken green grass and twisted it and folded it and stuffed it in the end of the smoker and that smothered it. I used a clump of wax also and stuffed that in the end. I lost my corks. I need...

    Re: 2 new packages - not queened right?

    I'm glad that this is helping. Since I have one with a bunch of queen cells that was a package that is queenless now I must have though that you had the same thing happen. I'm glad that jbraun read...

    Re: 2 new packages - not queened right?

    Oh, I didn't read it correctly. There is a queen in hive one still. Great point jbraun! Yes if you cage that queen and re introduce her to the queenless hive that would be a solution. The hive with...

    Re: 2 new packages - not queened right?

    If you have wax frames you could cut one of the queen cells off of the frame that has several of them and attach it into the queenless hive very carefully. That queen cell should re queen the...

    Lauri, what you showed in your picture is what I was trying to convey. I was told to put a queen excluder at the bottom of the empty box then shake some bees from frames into it. Incase there is a...

    Tillyandroo, they make beesuits for kids. Maybe this was meant to happen so that your son can meet the neighbor beekeeper and check out the bees up close and see how awesome they are. Honeybees are...

    I highly doubt that those bees will sting anybody unless you stepped on them barefoot. I am around bees quite often and don't get stung unless I am working in the hives. Cleaning the wood with...

    Hopefully your package install will pan out well and when young bees begin emerging they will be very pleasant.
