Re: I have A Situation.... Please Help!
Putting honey out next to your hive is something I'm always telling people not to do, but they keep doing it.
It's like living in a ghetto, and putting your most expensive belongings outside the front door, with a sign saying "there's more inside guys!!'
If someone feels they just "have" to let bees rob out some comb, at least don't do it right next to the hive. Do it at least a hundred yards away, but more's better. But best of all, don't even do it.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
