  1. Re: Old Brood Comb, with mold !? Can i use them for...? - (Photos attached)

    I'd say yes, but will let others with more experience chime in.

    I would put them outside in the sun, and flip to expose both sides.

    Re: hauling out fresh pollen

    Could it be old pollen by any chance? It's a protein that will break down over time, and I'm wondering if it's out with the old and in with the new?

    Edited Sorry, just reread where you say they're...
  3. Re: Caught and installed swarm from my hive. Now what?

    If you did put them back into the same hive, they haven't left, and you have the equipment, make a split.

    Find the queen and move some frames of workers and brood (no queen cells) into a new box....

    Re: What is your hive?

    All beekeeping is local. Join a local club (there must be one thereabouts, or up in Macon) and do as the Romans do.

    Getting input from folks in Massachusetts, North Dakota, or Canada won't do you...

    Re: Why do you keep bees?

    Ostensibly because I like honey, enjoy learning about new things and working with my hands.

    Re: Queen Excluders?

    I disagree. While I don't use excluders normally in my hives or nucs, they sure do come in handy when trying to isolate the queen.

    Re: Eco Wood Treatment

    Not if it's red or blue. Or green.

    Even when I just run the Eco Treatment straight (clear), I use and then recycle.

    Don't Cut a hole in the inner cover.

    A guy in our bee club took some 3" or 4" PVC Pipe, drilled a few holes into the side and then sawz-all'd the pipe in half. This creates a cradle for the 1/2...

    Re: Titebond 2 or 3

    II can be applied at a lower temperature, and dries faster - and since it's cold when I'm usually assembling the boxes it just made sense for me to use II. Read the labels and decide what's best for...
