    Re: Top entrance OB hive

    A few more photos. One shows a slide in cartridge with a metal shim laying in front of it.

    Re: Top entrance OB hive

    I finally got the ob hive in place and the bees installed. The hive is similar to the one from here in the observation hive forum by rookie2531, in the thread: My observation hive, best design? I...

    Top entrance OB hive

    I have my new 5 frame, single wide, ob hive nearly done. Was going to be a bottom entrance, but I'm now thinking I'll go with a top entrance which is necessary due to where I'm thinking the hive is...

    Re: Confine queen 3-4 days before pinching her?

    Recently I had trouble finding a queen in a very aggressive hive. The bees were very runny on the combs and I searched every comb several times over three days with no luck. I had a hive with drawn...

    How much vinegar do you add to a gallon of syrup, and what difference do you notice between with or without using it?

    Re: Requeening Africanized hives

    I'm trying to get started in bees again, but just as a hobby, after about 35 yrs without them. I built the woodware for about 6 hives because I had the wood, tools, and the time, and just because I...

    Re: Requeening Africanized hives

    Wow, I guess that's to be expected, that the queens daughters are as evil as she is. It makes me wonder how long the drones live, and if the workers might still kill the new queen after she lays an...

    Requeening Africanized hives

    I have read that it can be tough to get Africanized bees to accept a new queen and would like to hear from you that have experience with this. What has worked, what has not, and what specific step by...

    Re: How to add frame of brood with adhering bees?

    Would it matter if the frame was open brood or capped brood? Wouldn't nurse bees be more likely to be hanging out on open brood?

    So, in managing nucs that are growing fast, to keep them from over populating and swarming, you pull brood frames to be replaced with empty frames and utilize the brood to boost a weak colony or make...

    Re: My observation hive, best design? I think so.

    Yeah, I caught that, I was just commenting that they couldn't be pried apart. Is there anything you would do different?

    Did you finally get the new bees to get accepted?

    Nice job, by the way,...

    Re: My observation hive, best design? I think so.

    I've thought about building something similar myself. I see so many positives in the design, and it seems workable, but I see it being a bit problematic with the bees gluing the sections together....

    Dan, how prevalent does the AHBs seem to be in the Verde Valley? Did you get your bees from local swarms?

    Re: it was a swarm on Sunday

    Is that a well known common problem with using bee vacs for catching swarms or cutouts, that it disturbs the bees so much that they abscond?
