    Re: Nuc question for ya.

    Hi saltcreep, welcome to the forum. I am a new beek as well, but I do know that when I went to pick up a hive from my mentor, we had to switch out the bottoms. All he did was take off the hive lid,...

    @JohnV, yes I noticed today that when they started bearding again this afternoon, it was on the shaded side first. Interesting.

    Re: Bearding early in the morning

    It definitely was not ALL the bees, but they hang down approximately 3 inches below the entrance. Now that the sun is hitting the hive, there is a lot more activity, although still some bearding. I...

    Bearding early in the morning

    This morning I woke up about 5:30am and just out of curiosity, I went to check on my two hives. Interestingly, one hive had a "beard" of bees actually hanging off the entrance. They weren't really...
