    As an alternate option, you could just let them swarm and catch the swarms. Lazutin "Keeping Bees with a Smile"

    Re: Bearding

    It aint much.

    For reference: 51643

    In fact, at other points this summer the bees were covering the east and south walls of the hive (twice as much as the picture).

    pre-dawn ants

    Dear all,

    my weakest hive doesn't "plug" the entrance hole at night. This morning around 6 a.m. (dark here) I noticed a single column of ants going in through the entrance. They weren't there...

    Re: Minor flow in the Atlanta area?

    Hi, Dan,

    this is a good point, too. I didn't think about it much. Would appreciate any thoughts you have about when to have a hummingbird feeder up or not.

    regards,

    Re: Minor flow in the Atlanta area?

    Hi, Dan,

    While I do agree that there would be more water foragers with the current temperature,...

    Minor flow in the Atlanta area?

    Hi, all,

    I've noticed a pickup in the activity of my hives over the past couple of weeks and the goldenrod are starting to bloom. Anyone else seeing a "minor" fall flow?

    Thanks,
