    Re: Versatex for hive components

    Also most plastic glues, especially the Weld-on variety actually melt and bond at the joint, like you see with pvc pipes, the plastic usually breaks around the joint rather than at the joint when put...

    Re: Versatex for hive components

    Cleo- As I left the lumber yard last week, I thought about trying this exact thing. I don't much care what it costs because I am a small hobby beekeeper and as you suggested there are some...
  3. Re: Fall Inspection - Single Swarm Cell w/ larvae

    Had a few days of rain and went back in today to find what looked like a new queen. My old queen was marked, this one was not. I could not find the marked queen, but that doesn't mean she isn't...

  7. Re: Fall Inspection - Single Swarm Cell w/ larvae

    This sounds like my gut speaking. I will check and see if it doesn't get destroyed.

    If I combine it with my other hive it will be a huge hive, like 4 Deeps. That seems big to me.
  8. Re: Fall Inspection - Single Swarm Cell w/ larvae

    My point is that, drones have been ejected from the hive for the most part for the last two weeks. So concentrations are LOW. To me that means I am taking a big chance that the new queen mates and...
  9. Re: Fall Inspection - Single Swarm Cell w/ larvae

    This queen is a supercedure queen from summer. She lays well and honestly it's the gentlest bees I have had yet so I hope she stays. It looked like swarm cell bc it was hanging off bottom of...
  10. Fall Inspection - Single Swarm Cell w/ larvae

    I did one of my larger inspections of the year today, breaking down each box. Checked pollen/honey stores, reduce entrance, mouse guard, etc.

    One thing of note during my inspection was I found...

  13. Re: Swarm or Supercedure Cells - Please Help!!!

    Bees are such a mystery. Turns out they were supercedure cells, I found more cells today and they were all chewed from side. Found eggs again, but couldn't spot the queen. My original queen was...
  14. Re: Swarm or Supercedure Cells - Please Help!!!

    I smell what your cooking...my thoughts exactly. Sorry but few last questions....I can't buy the queen till sunday. The queen cells i have were likely capped this past Sunday/Monday, do I make that...
  15. Re: Swarm or Supercedure Cells - Please Help!!!

    The guy I buy my queens and bees from agrees they are supercedure cells. His advice was let it ride, or pinch the old queen and replace with a mated queen. Not sure what is in my best interest,...
  16. Re: Swarm or Supercedure Cells - Please Help!!!

    They are definitely queen cells, I take no offense to the suggestion but just want to be clear.

    So the suggestion would be take the swarm cells and some bees, put them in a NUC or other hive box...
  17. Re: Swarm or Supercedure Cells - Please Help!!!

    The queen is marked, unless its worn off.

    She is there because I saw eggs.

    So swarm is imminent?

    Perhaps wishful thinking but I was under impression that if swarm cells there would be many...
