    Re: Purple Martins and Swimming Pools

    I have seen bees search out pools, hot tubs, and fountains as they seem to like the chlorine in the water; especially when no other water was established near the hive to begin with. However, if a...

    Re: hello from Illinois

    Hey from Missouri. See if there is a bee club up there around where you are. There should be. They will be an invaluable resource for you. Have fun.

    I am so sorry to hear about the poison seeds. I am afraid for our entire world, and the quality of existence of our children, because of stupid, prideful, apathetic people in huge...

    I'll have to get back to you as it is late here, but this one has been successful thus far.

    So nice to hear from you. My wife and I were just talking about you. She asked if I had heard from you, as to how the bees were doing, and I said I hadn't. We both agreed that if we ever get...

    Re: Don't see this everyday....

    I've never seen one in Missouri. That is really cool. We have had some cold wet stuff too. Amazing. Hope they survive in the hive this winter. How far is Butler from Springfield?

    Re: Laying Worker / New Queen

    Well, there goes $50. I have heard of different ways to rid the hive of laying workers, but what is the easiest, quickest way?

    Re: Wasps,wasps and more wasps..

    Wow. I've never seen them do that. Not sure if you can bee-line them like honey bees. You might try to see if there is a particular direction they head. Also, I am curious as to how far they...
  13. Re: Hive removal from garden. No experience!

    Wonderful! :applause:
    I must say, you all did very well. Patience is very important when extracting bees and placing them in a hive box. If you get more chances like this, you don't have to worry...
  14. Re: Hive removal from garden. No experience!

    Hahahaha. Sounds like a great guy you have. I like the thought process you have about using a frame of eggs from the swarm hive for the cut-out hive to make their own queen; if they need it. She...
  15. Re: Hive removal from garden. No experience!

    If it were me, and I was moving the hive tomorrow night, I would not get into the hive. My experience has shown me that the less intrusion we do, the better the bees will do. I would move the hive...

    I have contacted a couple of places, and I do realize finding a Queen right now would be difficult. If anyone knows where I could find one quickly, please let me know. Thank you all for your...

    November Queen - Yes or No?

    Finally gave up on a trap-out this year. No Queen came out, but I have several frames of healthy bees. What would be the value of installing a queen in November? Should I, why or why not? What...

    Re: quilt box

    I used clean straw. It works great. Wicks away moisture, breathes, and yet insulates.

    Re: Hive Stands?

    No. I have made them for all my hives, and I have rarely seen a purpose for them. The bees certainly don't use them much, and think about it, any hive I have removed from a tree, a house, or other...

    This is awesome stuff. I love it! Great to see someone doing this kind of craft. I can think of several things I would have you make, if you were closer to Missouri. Great job. :applause:

    Great videos. Hope all works well for them in their new home. :)

    Thank you for the video. The box is much larger than I thought it was. Did you ever figure out what the box actually was; furniture or something?

    So glad you were able to do this. Please...
