    Re: Bee grooming at the hive entrance

    I’ve seen that activity before and always took it as the guard bees doing their thing. As in “you don’t have the right smell, you sure you belong here?”

    Re: Alternative design of a ventilated bottom

    Re: Does anybody reverse/flip bottom boards?

    They have enough air flow for the heat and curing honey Ollie? The only reason I ask is I run 1x2 furring strips w/ 3/8” cut out when nesc but run the full 3/4” when the flows on.

    Re: Resources on Nectar Flow Timing?

    Here’s a start. Over the years I’ve tried to pick up books that have native trees here in Michigan and talking to locals about when things bloom helps a lot too....
  12. Re: What are the bees gleaning from chicken feed?

    They’re after the corn powder, they’ll do the same thing for many things including sawdust.

    Re: What to do with deadout honey?

    That would be the best, honey trumps sugar water. If your putting them on empty comb and the queen starts laying right away they’ll burn thru it PDQ.

    Re: Winter Combining for Resources?

    I concur w/ GregV, if the bees are on the sugar it would be a major disruption to get it off and put the new box on. I just added a box to a hive but they had just moved up to the top bars and no...

    Re: Winter feeding and excess stores

    Ya, it sounds like your going to have some powerhouses down the road. Without knowing what you mean by excess, I would leave well enough alone, they can burn up a lot of stores raising spring brood...

    Ya, she might be a queen that’s failing, no telling how old she is considering it was a caught swarm.

    Re: Asian Giant Hornet
