    I push mid September in the Northwest. I never see drones kicked out until sometime in the dead of winter. I guess it depends on how fast you think you can feed them up.

    Robbing usually goes away after a day or two after feed is removed, entrance is reduced and a top cover lays across the entrance. I'm guessing it works the same way as a robbing screen... I never...

    Mine are off for most of the year. Only time they aren't is if it's a weak hive when robbing season starts and or in winter.

    Just an update with that hive. They pulled themselves out of the gutter and are doing well. I didn't supplement with anything but a quarter of a pollen patty and sugar syrup... They even had the lid...

    Personally I prefer swarm commander and I'm guessing this is only one of several factors to why I'm having success.

    I'm still yet to catch anything with LGO, although a lot of people have great...

    Re: CBPV Solution?

    Curve balls galore, for sure. My course of action for now is going to be to move about a quarter of the frames up to the second brood box and open up more entrances above as well. Didn't use pollen...

    CBPV Solution?

    I've been dealing with this since mid spring with one hive. They are clean from mites, this looks like a legit case. Is their any real solution for it this late in the year?

    Apiguard/Honey Super

    New to apiguard, I can't seem to find information on how long before I can replace the honey supers. Immediately after treatment is finished?

    Thanks!
  13. Re: Portland Oregon Nectar flow and question

    Pulled most of mine a week ago or so. Still waiting for 1 hive to cap a box. This year has been weak sauce for honey in my area compared to last.

    Re: A very swarmy year. You too?

    This year was a suck fest for swarm captures here. 3 swarms trapped. 1 captured from a tree which was my own. Had my name in at 10 pest control companies. Zero calls. I'm guessing it had something to...
  15. Re: Got to get on top of this swarm stuff!!!

    Depends how strong of a hive you are taking it from and how much resources you want to take to start another hive, nuc or nucs.

    Taking a frame from one of my strong hives once in a while around...
  16. Re: Got to get on top of this swarm stuff!!!

    Yeah. This year was beyond brutal for getting ahead of things. I had one of my hives with swarm cups going and it was mid March. It was barely warm and dry enough to do anything.

    I found that it...
  17. Re: Got to get on top of this swarm stuff!!!

    I was going to graft this year. But I ended up splitting so much into 3 4 or 5 frame nucs that it didn't even matter.

    I'm having no problems with honey production after splitting in time. Of...
  18. Re: Got to get on top of this swarm stuff!!!

    Gotta make hay while the sun shines. Really gotta eye ball those semi nice semi dry days in March and April, then split the hell out of them imo. I had two really strong hives coming out of winter...

    Re: Apivar and honey supers

    Is it safe to extract frames that have been in contact with apivar after X amount of time or is it once the damage is done it's permanent?

    Re: how about beeline Apiaries

    No complaints here. They do a painted brood box for about the same price I can for materials but they do a better job and do the work for me.

    Spring is here along with our main summer honey flow. Haha. The swarm prevention has been real.
