    Re: When (time of year) to move hives

    Sorry, what I meant was that you can move a hive anytime during the year. In terms of actual moving, I would wait until all foragers are home and then close up the hive after dark. If there are bees...

    Re: When (time of year) to move hives

    Move them anytime you see fit. Bees always adjust to new location.

    Re: Mouse Guard and Entrance Reducer for Winter

    I buy metal strips with 3/8 inch holes from Home Depot. Cut the strips so that just 4 holes are left. Put that in the entrance and cover the rest of the entrance with wood and secure with screws.

    Re: Honey in dead hive

    Temperature of -10 in the winter kills off wax moth eggs and larvae, but as soon as weather warms re-infestation can happen. I don't see why a Michigan winter makes honey not suitable for harvest. If...

    Re: Mediums for Brood?

    2 deeps for brood nest. Bees like it, easy for inspections as few frames to go through. Shallows for honey, try lifting a medium box full of honey when it is sitting 6 feet up.

    Apivar in November could be too late. I prefer September. I have never got consistent results from OA. Too many variables.

    Re: marked queen missing?

    Your marked queen has been replaced by a new unmarked queen. You must not put her in a cage, she has to mate.

    Re: Capped drones from newly mated queen?

    You made a split in mid May with a capped QC but did not see eggs or larvae till mid June. A QC hatches in 8 days, so 22 days are quite enough to see eggs. As you did not see eggs or larvae in June,...

    Re: My bees are jerks.

    Try to find a beekeeper who is willing to give you a frame with eggs. It can be transported without bees attached so in 5 days you will know if the hive is queenless and if so, they will make queen...

    Re: New Comb Looking Very Unruly

    The best thing you can do for this hive is to leave them alone. Hive is too weak to draw foundation. If you destroy comb they built, you must provide them drawn comb.

    Re: Dormant Queen

    I think it is risky to put a full frame of bees to a hive that only has 150 bees. More than likely queen will be killed. You need to cage the queen before doing the transfer.
