    Re: Driving with bees

    I made it!
    There were a few stragglers. It was a bit of a dance to shoo them away while putting the box in the back, but I succeeded.

    Re: Driving with bees

    Every package I've ever got, there has been "stragglers" hanging out on the outside of the box.

  10. first sting of the season, the treatment works!

    I got my first sting of the season. A forager whacked into my kneecap, and stung me through my pants.

    Good...

    Anatomy of a hive

    Hey, everyone,

    I have been experimenting with different hive sizes and I made a 17" by 17" hive. I had installed a swarm in it last year, that my friend had caught. I realized it probably died...

    Hey, Kate,

    I'm not familiar with the broodminder, but it appears to me it would be taking a spot temperature, so it probably matters greatly where you place it. I would echo what JW is saying. ...
