    Re: My hive wants to be queenless

    I've been there. I also started with two hives. I'm up to 6 or 7 now. When you have more, you can do splits and divide up resources and not worry about an individual failing colony.

    You could...

  6. Re: Would a optimal inspection time service be of use to a commercial beekeeper?

    I put my location in and the temperature was 20F higher than actual.

    Thanks folks, sounds easy. Hopefully this works out and I'll get a few supers of goldenrod honey out of this.

    Re: Moving hives

    You don't have angry bees all over the place at a red light?

    Re: Ceracell hive top feeders

    I have one 10 frame version. I really like it; one odd thing I've noticed is that random colonies refuse to touch it. I can move it to another colony and use a jar in it's place and then both hives...

    Where are you located?

    I think I will go with them. They let me buy now and pick my shipping date. I like that.

    Thank you, just what I needed to know. Now I have to find someone who ships queens that early.
  21. Conditions for early splits w/purchased queens

    I want to do splits the 3rd-4th week of February. I'm in central SC. I did splits last year and had the bees make queens. I want to give them more of a head start this year for the flow which begins...
