    Re: What's going on with the swarming?

    I though 'afterswarm' myself. But, the original colony must be huge to provide so many bees for four swarms. The man that owns the house keeps asking me if the first swarms are still in the boxes, or...

    About a week ago a woman called me about a swarm at her house. It was very big...I'd say 5-6lbs. The next day another, about 2/3 the size. Then the next day another one. then another. I just went and...

    Queen cells

    Re: What defines mean bees?

    I consider a bee mean if she's always calling the queen a fat, old beetch. Or if she's always tripping her sisters as they try and take off the landing pad....once is funny, after that it's just mean.

    Re: bearding in cool weather?

    I added the super because we still have a lot of goldenrod, also the tail end of the knotweed, and the bees are working like crazy. I have never seen much problem with SHB here. In fact, I only saw...
