  1. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    Curious about the results. I was firmly in the skeptic camp.
  2. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

  3. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    I work for a manufacturer. Our environment is noisy. I tried several apps on my smart phone to read the sound pressure levels at various points within the factory. The results from testing at any...

    Re: Frost in hive

    While it is noble to leave the bees their honey; 3 deeps and a medium is quite a substantial volume particularly for western MA. I think this could potentially contribute to the amount of moisture...

    Supercedure

    Hello. Thanks in advance!

    1. How old in days does a queen have to be for the average hobbyist to recognize her as such?

    2. When a supercedure queen emerges, she kills any queens still in...
  10. Re: As a beginner, is it really "best" to start two hives?

    I know it is a tough decision. But I learned the hard way. Get two hives. It is your best chance at sustainability. You will pay the cost one way or the other.

    Re: Supercedure cell? What are my options?

    Unless production is vital to your operation, why not go with their instincts as a great learning opportunity?

    I have a neighbor who has kept bees for 50 years. He also happens to be a Vermont game warden. He says he's seen momma bears teach their cubs that the electric fence hurts. But once you get past...

    Re: Maybe thier just real quiet........

    I am in the NEK. I am adjacent to Coos county. I've never lost a hive over the winter. I've never got one through the spring. Three different locations. The bears came through. What is...
  16. Re: Building a couple of nucs, confused on dimensions

    Do the sides overlap the bottom board instead of sitting on top of it?
  17. Re: Two Months Before I would Even Consider Opening the Hives

    Talk to me about cleats... How do you connect them? Wood glue? Wood screws? Bisuits? If you use screws, do you screw from the inside out, or the outside in?

    Re: Brood in the super

    I never thought of this. Per your recommendation in the past, I too use two deeps and a medium as the default volume. Two question:

    1. Rather than exchanging the top and bottom; would there be...

    I am keeping busy. Built this out of wood shipping crates. Note lower deep. Upside down handholds. <sigh>
  24. Re: Lost hive, all the bees were on the bottom board

    It leaps out at me that the dead bees are so uniformly located across the entire bottom board and that they were squishy... When I clean out the entrances during the winter to keep them free from...
  25. Re: Hobbyist Beekeeper: Death, Swarms and new queens?

    When I started I wanted just one hive to keep things nice and simple. It turns out that a sole hive makes things complex. Two is the minimum and three is your best bet for sustainability.
