    Re: Bee hive in a water meter 2018

    I watched a YouTube video on how to make a bee vac. I already have a couple of shop vacs so it's a piece of cake to make one. I wish it was warmer that worries me more than anything.Thanks

    Re: My first Nuc

    I wanted to use it for producing queens and for other resources when needed. Surprise it's "the nuc" is expanding so quick. I think I'll move it to a 8 frame deep and do a split. Move the queen into...

    My first Nuc

    I split one of my hives a few weeks ago to make a Nuc. It's growing very fast so today I had to add another box. So now what should I do with it? Is it to early to split it again or should I just let...

    A lot of first today

    My biggest hive swarmed today and sat by helplessly and watched. It was a fascinating sight but depressing at the same time. So. I inspected the hive and found 7 large Queen cells. I split the hive...

    My Grandad was a bee keeper. That must be where I got the bug from. I think of him a lot when I'm working my bees.

    Queen excluder

    I checked one of my very stronghives today and found some brood at the bottom of a couple of frames. It was a clump of wax with larva all through it. Not what you normally see. I imagine it's drone...

    Re: What do you do about carpenter bees?

    I swat them with a broom. I'm not seen them boring holes in my Woodward. I'm not sure they would survive long once they got into the hive? Their pissy things for sure.

    Re: How do you keep track of your hives?

    I use blue masking tape and write down what I have found while inspecting. If the pattern is good and all looks well i just write the date and ok. Simple and works for me.

    Re: NeeBee in Georgia

    Stormy weather won't hurt them unless your hive gets blown over or a tree falls on it. They just stay inside on days like this. Your worst problem will most likely bee small hive beatles in Ga. Don't...

    I keep an eye on all my hives through the "winter" if you can call it that here in Georgia this year. I noticed two hives with less activity last week. I inspected and found very few bees in either...
