    My experience with foam hives was that I had a lot more moisture than with wood. Significant enough that the inside was always wet and the bees did not survive. I'm sure it's working for some...

    Sticky: Re: Successful Queen Introduction tips.

    Old queens are too valuable in alcohol to pinch them. Put them in a jar of alcohol... then you can lure swarms out of trees and get cutouts to settle down in the box you are putting them in.

    At one time or another the queen is in every inch of the colony where she has access. She just spends MOST of her time in the brood nest.

    Re: oa dribble freqency
