    Re: Not catching swarms - what gives?

    I was curious and looked at the swarm bandit post. it is a swarm preventer not a swarm trap. other advise: be patient and try some other locations, like a few miles away.

    look for a queen breeder further north also not south florida. you do not want a queen mated with afrianized drones. I would suggest California or mid-south.

    too much feeding this time of year is when there is no space for the queen to lay eggs. bees seem to prefer to forage rather than take feed if conditions allow this. conditions are: weather, hive...

    the honey on hand can go down in a hurry as the nectar coming in slows or stops when the bees are in population increase mode. this is more noticeable in first year colonies with Italian type queens....

    Re: tankless water heater

    if and when a tankless heater screws up it is a lot more expensive to repair. if you use it daily it is usualy quite dependable, siting unused for months is not helpful.
