    Re: oa dribble freqency

    What mix did you use? Could it have been that the treatment came to late?

    I'm looking to use the mix listed on scientific beekeeping.

    I found the part number on sears, but it isn't in stock. Any way to rig it? I have the ball and spring. The plastic is what is missing.

    Re: WHAT TO DO, IN NEED OF HELP

    It moths got your hive, it was probably weak from some other issue. Strong hives keep them out. Next time freeze all effected frames.

    Tree cavities is a growing problem in this area too. Many species use them, but people tend to cut the tree down when it gets a cavity. I know two people that did so this year and both trees had...

    Mine aren't using the syrup like I'd expect. There seems to be a trickle of nectar coming in. Lots of pollen all summer. I went into winter with 7 last year, one of which I didn't think would make...

    Re: 2018/19 Journal NW Florida Gulf Coast

    Sometimes it is good to be wrong. All but one queen made it back. I have reached my hive number goal and many of them are very strong. Once again we are running short on comb. Temps are still...
  12. Re: What to do with all the supers full of sugar syrup

    ditto JW. Also, I don't like to harvest honey off a hive that syrup on them because the bees can and do move the sugar around. When I harvest honey, I want it to be pure honey, not adulterated.

    One of our local guys suspects the same thing, but he is a small scale hobbyist. I suspect it happens more than we know.

    Re: 2018/19 Journal NW Florida Gulf Coast

    That is great that the nuc has a queen. Dragon flies are beautiful, but I now feel a sense of disappointment when seeing them and knowing queen rearing is at an end.

    Re: 2018/19 Journal NW Florida Gulf Coast

    At this point of the year, I suspect the dragonflies are snacking on mating queens down here. I had thought I got many of the splits in early enough, but I no longer think that. Looks like May will...

    It looks like my late June-July splits are all failing to return mated queens. I'm about to give up and start recombining.

    Re: Honey Tank Score!

    Are you referring to the stainless steel pot? If so, it doesn't look like it can be sealed air-tight, which could cause problems with the humidity level of the honey and with contaminants.

    Re: Mated queen taking 4 weeks to lay?

    Although this question doesn't require location, you may want to add it to your information and be a bit more specific, such as state. There are many East Bay areas in the country. ;)

    Re: Hive smell

    There are therapies that involve inhailing the hive air. In some places, people pay to sleep on a cot that is built above a hive. The hive vents into the small room.
