Thoughts on spraying bees and queen or not. I have two top bars completed. Bees will be here and ready to install the 6th of may. Nights right now are still fairly chill at or slightly below freezing.
I also thought about a marshmallow for a fairly quick bee release either suspended or laid on the bottom of my tbh.
I am brand new to keeping bees. I built two golden mean hives. Still need to finish the window covers up tonight. I have their video and keeping bees in western Canada book.
Also wanted to ask about size. The gmtbh seems small. Has anyone tried a super? If so will I need the spaces between the bars like in langstroths in the golden mean complete with queen excluder?
Lastly. I built the feeder shown on the "honey beats" website. I'd post a link if I knew how, using my cell right now. Anyways. Instead of screen around the jar I used some thin plywood. Drilled a hole with appropriate Forstner bit. Question is will this be ok? And about how big of holes do I need and how many in the mason jar lid?
Ps great site been reading the last week or so now.
