    copied it back and it worked. That filter is too strict. Will not allow the word "scrape". As in scrape wax off a frame.

    A queen that mothers a hive that gives seven supers of honey by season's end.

    maybe it's skyscraper that's the problem?

    4 hives: 1 Carniolan/Italian Hybrid, 2 Swarms from that hive and 1 Russian.

    Holey moley!!! A quick question if I may...why do you leave the honey supers all on...why not remove some before adding more? Is it to keep them all warm? Or what.....my question comes from not knowing, so please keep that in mind when answering my silly question.

    Often the bees are to busy bringing in nector to cap all those supers. I've seen one sky-s-aper queen and the hive starved during the winter, the queen just kept laying and laying , they starved by xmas
    I'm not tense, Just terribly, terribly alert!
