  1. Re: Penn State "COMB" project posts Dec 2019 update

    Sometimes reading TF debates is like listening to the impeachment debates. Every bodies talking, nobodies listening.

  2. Re: Stimulative Feeding With Drivert vs Syrup

    My belief is either would stimulate, if and only if, the other was already in the hive in an adequate amount.

    Re: TIN FOIL HAT or REALITY?

    Very few people actually select what to consume. The choice is "where"; the "what" simply follows.

    Re: Help. Need my Bees to move on

    If you have a cardboard box you probably can shake that bush and have them march in. My money is the queen is on the bush.

    Re: Help. Need my Bees to move on

    If they are inside already the hose will not kill the colony.
    If the choice is $150 or the hose, on a warm day, it would be the hose.
    But on the companion thread the question is moot; a removal.

    If you do not want to throw your town out there you can PM it and I will look for a removal member if you have not gone that route.

    Not a good sign for leaving. Hit them with the hose and let us know what you see. Will be a hole or drawn comb.

    Your attachment shows now. It was waiting approval as it is your first post.

    Looks like a swarm cluster to me, not yet a beard, now that the photo shows.

    Re: Need Bees to move along

    Have you gone to the bee removal list in the bar above? Might find a more willing keep.

    They may move on but the longer they stay the less likely. Are you seeing any pollen coming back? If so,...

    Will be fine. A dab of polyurethane glue or caulk will fill any holes that you don't want.

    The advice you are getting is more of a nuance and preference than different. As much as from looking at photos not the hive. You say there are wet stores in the hive, then they have been taking...

    OK my questions;
    They look like they are working off stores, not seeing any wet cells. (that may be just photos) When would you feed from beginnings of natural flow?

    Unfortunately that does not leave a bee space. If you are going to just use on the bottom box just add onto your bottom board.
