    Re: Queen excluders or honey excluders?

  7. Re: Effective to simply keep cutting out swarm cells?

    That’s funny, because I wasn’t trying yo be rude or anything like that, just making a statement. :)
  8. Re: Effective to simply keep cutting out swarm cells?

    I don’t believe I said anything regarding last years queen inhibiting swarming.
  9. Re: Effective to simply keep cutting out swarm cells?

    This is a first for me; capped and empty. it was suggested by Clyderoad that maybe the hive swarmed and the hinged cap for whatever reason the bees saw fit was reattached; but, there was more than...
  10. Re: Effective to simply keep cutting out swarm cells?

    I just posted this question to Bee-l I inspected a hive yesterday, healthy, strong, packed with bees, had eggs, open brood, and empty CAPPED swarm cells with last years queen still present....
  11. Re: Effective to simply keep cutting out swarm cells?

  12. Re: Effective to simply keep cutting out swarm cells?

    Re: LaunchAmerica

    I missed it but will watch it somewhere. I was feeling a little apprehensive, I was reminded of the Challenger, but did not want to dwell on that at all. I believe human beings living in a space...

    Today in the apiary in one of my favorite hives,MP queen, two full supers of honey, needing to be capped. Also in another hive I found something I have never seen in my apiary, full size capped swarm...

    Yes, we forget to think like a bee!
  19. Re: Why haven't more beekeepers been inspired by The Sustainable Apiary
