  1. Re: Undercover Boss - Orkin killing bees

    I love how Orkin used the words "treated the bee hive", is that what was done? I am never treating my hives again, if this is what happens when I am done:lpf:

    Re: New Nuc dead with 4 days

    That's the understatement of the day:D I would suggest getting a hold of your supplier & show him/her those all telling pictures;)

    Re: Queen?

    The one on the wood, top left? Her abdomen to me says it's her, & her size is consistent with a virgin.
  4. Re: Props to all you that do bee removal service

    Sounds like this one will be a fun one:D. If they are that aggressive, I would consider vacuuming most of them off the comb, & then remove comb. I am not a big fan of this route, but they can't...

  6. Re: Are These White Spots a Problem?

    I wondered about this back when. It is actually pollen collected from sticking their body/head so far in the petals of the flower that pollen residue is collected on the hairs of their head;)

    Re: More swarm advice needed

    I have never tried to "lock" them in so I would never recommend it. On the excluder, what if it is a virgin queen who needs to get out and get mated?

    Re: Running Out of Room

    Actually, you probably lost the hives due to Following the "poor" advice given & not knowing anything different:D. I would hope that no matter how many years experience beekeepers have, they are...
  12. Re: Can you go treatment free after treating?

    Another reason to START treatment free from the beginning with treatment free bees? Pass on treated packages and put the money away for treatment free bees. I would imagine you are treating them...
  13. Re: Inexpensive 5.5mm Borescopes: Are They Useful?

    I don't know about the quality of the ones you write of, but I have one in the tool box and it gets many uses in the year. They are great for drywall, but even better for stucco and brick after one...

    Re: any tips on doing a cutout

    And an infrared camera is even better, if you can't get a hold of one, consider renting one.
  16. Re: cutouts- free, or who pays to repair

    "Normal" is what you make it. As pointed out, if you don't have the "skills, insurance, &/or license", it is best to walk away. If it is within my ability, I give an estimate based upon exactly what...

    I don't find this to be true, or to be that simple.

    Re: Burr Comb in Nuc

    If they have started swarm prep, it's already in their bee brains;), and even though they now have more room, they could still continue/finish the process. However, they may also stop/destroy the...

    Re: Burr Comb in Nuc

    Normal for a strong nuc (count your blessing):D. It is a sign that your nuc is almost out of room and have nothing to do except full all the empty spaces. Did you look at the bottom of the frames for...

    Re: Should i re-queen a swarm?

    No you should not, or I should write, I would not. If you like wasting money & time, then maybe. What would be the point/purpose? Your not even sure of their laying pattern yet:scratch:

  24. Re: Heeeelp!!! new give swarmed. wife caught them. now what?

    I am not so sure about that one, after all she was in there (with eggs & brood?) before they swarmed, which technically they absconded. Somehow the inspection and absconding may be related. There is...
