    Default Topics for Beesource Reference Section

    Barry has asked me to collect info on different topics i.e. pollen patty recipes, queen rearing techniques, etc. to post on the resources section of this site. If you have any SPECIFIC subjects that you would like posted, please post here. If you have info you want included, please post the beesource link.

    Thanks

    To be one step ahead of the future posted questions I believe some Spring preparation topics would be in order. Maybe reversing, swarm prevention, checker-boarding...

    Checker boarding is a method of swarm control. Imagine that you have a hive in a single deep and the colony is expanding and getting crowded in that box. You need to do something or they will swarm. One thing you can do is give them a new box and hope for the best. Another idea is that when you do so you can remove half the frames from each box and then alternate the new with the old in both boxes. If you had glass ends on the boxes and the new frames were fresh white wood, perhaps with just foundation, and the old frames were dark aged wood then the hive from the end would look somewhat like the first two rows on a checker board.

    Don't put your bees in harms way. Children throw rocks and upset bee hives. If a stinging incident occurs, are you negligent? Did you put up a sign warning of the dangers posed by your bee hives? Did you have a fence to prevent the children from getting up close to the hives?

    Generally, you probably would not owe duties to trespassers. However, an exception applies to kids, when there is a condition on your property (called an "attractive nuisance") that you reasonably would expect to attract kids. I seriously question that a beehive would qualify as an attractive nuisance. (I also can't ever remember how to spell nuisance). However, if there are kids around, fence off your hives.

    OK, I see what you're saying. Yes, once we get the page up, it would be a good spot for the glossary.
