    Re: Foundationless and drones?

    I've let mine draw out foundation less on their second deep. My suppers have plenty of foundation-less but I also use queen excluders so the supers are all honey comb without foundation.

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    Made a couple splits from swarm cells. Hopefully saved another weak nuc by adding a queen cell from another hive. There is a flow going on because my mean hives weren't nearly as mean.

    Re: Hot hives

    Sounds like you're pretty good at making a fool of yourself as well. When a feral hive kills another "hillbilly" who do you press "negligent homicide" against mother nature? Second, no prosecutor...

    Re: Hot hives

    That's a tough one. I have one really hot hive but dang they produce some honey. I have a new house that's being built about 150 ft from 13 hives. There hasn't been an issue yet except that one...

    Re: Slovenian Beekeeping Museum

    Thanks. We did a tour of an apiary. The beekeeper was great and extremely proud of their beekeeping culture. He didn't have very positive things to say about the hive we commonly use in the US....

    The first picture is of old queen cages.

  14. Re: when does main flow hit in Houston TX area?

    Like Joebrad said, the Tallows are a big flow in Houston. That doesn't start until the end of May if I'm not mistaken. However, the wild flowers are out early up in Grimes and Montgomery County...

    Re: Foundationless?

    I'm in the midst of transitioning to foundation-less. Let me correct myself. I'm not throwing away my plastic but all new frames are just frames with no foundation. I'll let the girls work out the...

    The wife and I went into the boxes yesterday. The temp was about 73 and cloudy here in Texas - at least on my little farm. The bees were aggressive and would follow us after wards. All ten colonies...

    I looked for the queen but didn't find her. I didn't take any brood with me. I opened up the siding and started removing the paddles. The paddles were large enough so I just placed my frame over the...
