  1. Re: TBH-Hybrid, Long Lang Advice Needed Pretty Please :)

    Move the hive? Um..not something I'd ever do once full of bees as I have a designated area on my property for my hives. Thanks for all the information, very helpful!!!
  2. Re: TBH-Hybrid, Long Lang Advice Needed Pretty Please :)

    The concept of the Thomas hive has bits and pieces that I want to include in a TBH but not enough for me to warrant the price. What I liked was the internal water/feed source, the addition of supers...
  3. Re: Robbed or Something Else?? Need Advice Please.

    The wire mesh that is over the ventilation holes now (and even what was there prior though it was plastic) I guess I should have referred to as 'screen' (like what you would use for windows) forgive...
  4. Re: Robbed or Something Else?? Need Advice Please.

    I promise it's not mice, skunks or birds. My TBH is on legs that make it roughly 42" off the ground. The entrance is on the side and is about the size of a wine cork. The upper ventilation holes...
  5. Re: TBH-Hybrid, Long Lang Advice Needed Pretty Please :)

    That is nice, my only concern for using deeps is the weight on the comb. This year was my first year with a tbh and we had a horribly hot spell some of the comb that was so full of honey detached...
  6. TBH-Hybrid, Long Lang Advice Needed Pretty Please :)

    So I love my TBH there are however things I want to have differently. I want a screened bottom board and the ability to put in a SHB trap. I want to be able to easily place a feeder or a pattie...
  7. Re: Robbed or Something Else?? Need Advice Please.

    Greetings all just sort of an update on my bees and some additional thoughts on my part in the off chance that it could help anyone else :)

    I'm still feeding a 2:1. Did a full inspection this...
  8. Re: Robbed or Something Else?? Need Advice Please.

    Dug through the whole hive and I'm not sure I'm buying that there was a swarm. The marked queen that I got this spring is in there, I saw her on one of the frames with the little silver spot on her...
  9. Re: Robbed or Something Else?? Need Advice Please.

    Before this happened there was a very actively laying queen and no sign of cells. As of Friday like I said, when I attempted to move the top bars where there are still bees and activity I was met...
  10. Robbed or Something Else?? Need Advice Please.

    I need advice. 5 weeks ago before we went on vacation I checked my first year TBH. The girls were doing great, new comb, new brood and capped and uncapped honey. They were doing just what I'd hope...

    Re: Greetings from Muggy Maryland!

    I've heard about the research but I also know that breeding things to be bigger is not always better and can present problems. It is logical that doing so with honeybees that weren't meant to be...

    Re: Greetings from Muggy Maryland!

    Thanks for the welcome and the info! I'm in no rush, I figured to order my nucs this winter and have everything set and ready for next spring. Right now I want to read and learn all I can before I...

    Greetings from Muggy Maryland!

    Hi all! I'm Angie and I'm in the research phase right now. I had a wonderful experience with a nest of honeybees in a tree and it sparked my interest, so I've been looking into this hobby.

    I'm...
