    Re: Could I have a laying queen already?

    I find it doubtful you have a laying queen, but it is possible. I find it interesting they would have a cell in there with two laying queens if that is the case, albeit, they did tear it down.
  4. Re: Warning: Some of these images may be disturbing to younger, more sensitive viewer

    Young queen will lay anywhere, when she found them big cells, she was more than happy to pop some eggs in there probably.

    Re: How to release a bee from a spider's web

    I've got a bumper crop of black widows underneath most of my hives this year, some real beauties too... I don't mind them, figure they get the sick and the dumb ones wandering around aimlessly.

    Re: How to identify a laying worker?

    It's not just one laying worker... you can't identify them either.
  8. Re: I've got brood back! Comments welcome on ANYTHING you see!

    So, I didn't read the whole timeline but Square brought up a good point, might of had some drone laying before introduction, if she made it, hopefully she took over the hive, if not, she probably got...

    Re: The latest jar queen addition!

    How many hives you up to Fin.
  10. Re: First Hive split. Wondering what to do next...

    There's no robbing, they're drawing frames and storing a fair amount. Here's Soar's new baby, I'm quite impressed with this new queen for a walk away. We did cull down the runty cells at day 7. ...
  11. Re: I've got brood back! Comments welcome on ANYTHING you see!

    Might be a drone laying queen, which is why you need to find her and see if you actually have a queen or not.
  12. Re: I've got brood back! Comments welcome on ANYTHING you see!

    Looks like all drones...

    Re: Typical pattern for young queen?

    lot of drone brood too
  14. Re: First Hive split. Wondering what to do next...

    Hehe, I don't mess with them at night, unless it's to move them, and i make sure they're screened in really well, except it didn't work out very well with them in the back seat last time....
  15. Re: First Hive split. Wondering what to do next...

    Can probably come by this weekend to help you look and see if we got a new laying queen. The split had most of the capped brood, which is why they're dropping more mites probably.
  16. Re: New single deeps in CA: feeding, Apiguard, and fall/wintering?

    Jeremy has some nice queens, even saw his book at Mann Lake a few weeks ago. Mine are on the darker side, but seem to be heavy brooders so far, time to put them in singles, had them about two...

    Re: Wood eating larvae in my hive

    When they go to pupate or sometimes even as a larva, they'll bore a hole or make that indention to spin their cocoon in.

  20. Re: Warning: Some of these images may be disturbing to younger, more sensitive viewer

    I've had similar experience with OAV, I can't say exactly why, but my theory is all the treatments just lined up with mites being able to stay protected in capped brood

    Re: Queenless again,,,

    If they were capped when you found them, you should have a laying queen by now, I'd give a looksy.

    Re: Why aren't Drones clones?

    Don't forget about recombination. Drones cannot be clones of the queen(because they're haploid) nor is each drone necessarily identical to their 'brothers' due to recombination events between sets...
  23. Re: Can you please sign this petition regarding Neonicotinoids

    That's why they were spraying worse stuff this year, more of it, with poor results since a lot of the pests are resistant. Also, saw quite a reduction in yields, especially in Canola.

    Re: Can Someone ID this worm?

    Looks like fly pupae and maggots. Can grab some of the brown pupae, put them in a jar, keep at room temperature, see what kind of fly emerges.
