    Re: Combine colonies in August?

    Re: Combine colonies in August?

    Maybe you should ask first if the others have experiences where they say that a smaller colony can make it through the winter on its own?

    Re: Spraying for Army Worms

    Maybe there's more we can do about this?

    Maybe you could put up wind sheet screens (hang bed sheets?) between that area and along a line in front of your hives for example for a few days, and have...
  5. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    I'm very hopeful about this new tool and congrats to whoever is making it.

    But there is one concern.

    If this is a sound diagnostic tool, it would need to be able to not confuse or cross...
  6. Re: I dropped my queen outside my hive in the grass

    Re: Robbing???

    I like the wet towel idea!

    That idea could be good for more than one thing too. Its possible they might like the moisture just for itself, and for cooling. And this is the first time I've heard...

    Re: Bee grooming at the hive entrance

    Well I'm not an expert. I was hoping others would answer this.

    The bees have certain jobs they do. One of them is a cleaner. But another job is receiving the foragers 'payloads'. I'm not sure...

    Re: Hornet Nest

    If you do the garbage sack option, you could double bag it in case they try to get through while you are trying to secure it.

    You could also use a big 5 gallon bucket and lid to put it in fast...

    Re: Where to buy bulk sugar?

    My Walmart has good sugar pricing also, but not quite as good as yours. Ours is around 46 cents a pound. I checked this the other day to be sure.

    Re: Closing them in for a day

    And how far from the patio are the hives? Maybe you won't need to do anything, if they are a bit off. You could set a a bee drinker closer to the hive away from the patio also if you do it with...

    This is why all the gardeners always do morning work also.

    The heat isn't very fun, I agree.

    Re: New Hive: Risk of Absconding?
