    [QUOTE=little_john;1820141]They look bigger because they're fully exposed, whereas with grafted and emergency cells, somewhere around 1/4 to 1/3 of the cell is hidden from view. The same is true of...
  3. Re: Inducing Swarm Cells for Quality Queens?

    I don’t know much about queen rearing, having never done any, but swarm cells are so much bigger than grafted or even supersedure and emergency cells. All honey bees swarm, so why the worry about...

    Re: Freezing Frames

    Wax moths can infest whenever they can, even after you thaw out your frames. It depends on how you store your frames.

    Hi Robert, it is difficult to discern n. cerana spores from n. apis spores. N. apis is the poop one, where as n. cerana is different, dwindling etc.

    Re: Very hot hive advice needed

    I just watched a video of a beekeeper in NJ that euthanized a VERY HIT hive; I mean aggressive. He taped it up at night and put a screen on top in place of the inner cover. Next day he poured diary...

  15. Re: Why is my honey settling at the bottom of the jar?

    Re: SBB question

    I use all screened BB; I don’t use them for ventilation at all, but use them to monitor the hive and mite drop after OAV.

    Re: Spun (Creamed) Honey issues

    Well, spun honey sounds like it was spun somehow; I associate spun honey and whipped honey the same, with similar results, but will eventually separate because of the air whipped in. Creamed honey is...

    Re: Spun (Creamed) Honey issues
