  5. Re: Bees Swarmed Today, Captured My First Swarm

    Now today the bees swarmed for a second time out of my overwintered host hive.

    Always use smoke ,always in a full suit and gloves.

    I don’t mind the suit on hot days. The suit lets me work; carrying boxes, bending down, slight bumps in the boxes.

    Gloves: leather. I’m a...
  8. Re: First Check After The Winter. Holy Cow!!!!!!!!

    There is about 6 frames of capped honey still in the boxes.

    I’m sure they will rip right through it once they start needing it.

  13. Re: Too late to start feeding sugar syrup in Jersey?

    I made a gallon of super sugar water
    And the bees sucked it down in 2 days.

    I know I was late, but the bees took it this week while it was relatively mild.
  14. Too late to start feeding sugar syrup in Jersey?

    Went in today to remove a honey super to keep the bees from swarming.

    Some of the outer frames were a bit light with honey.

    Can I feed for a week or 2 to get some more food in the stores?

    Or...
  15. Re: I think today my bees swarmed today. Now confused!

    Went in today and found the queen in the 2nd deep box.

    No swarm cells. Who knows what my wife saw.
  16. Re: I think today my bees swarmed today. Now confused!

    Should I pull 2 few honey frames out and put in 2 empty frames?

    I only have foundation, no full frames drawn.

  17. Re: I think today my bees swarmed today. Now confused!

    Well, the brood nest box 1 and 2 are tight. Packed with honey and brood.

    When you say pull the queen? Can you clarify?

    Re: Harvesting Uncapped Frames?

    The 2 deeps below the supers are loaded.

    Hive weight is heavy.

    Do you leave supers on for the winter if there is honey unusable?

    I want to reduce the hive to 2 deeps for overwintering.
