What doesn't seem right?
I would strongly suggest that you find an experience mentor.
I have little doubt that our...or at least my understanding of the process is incomplete. Any number of things may well enter in.
Actually, unless I'm mistaken it is brood pheromones that suppress the development of worker ovarian development.
Another ‘old school’ method for correcting a laying worker colony included shaking all of the bees out.
One of the claimed theories was that the laying workers would not be able to find their way...
Not necessarily. If the last bees to emerge become laying workers then they might only be a couple of days old.
I believe that I remember who told me that…during a lecture and someone knowledgeable..... but I am not certain enough to name them as I could be mistaken. If I get a chance I may try to dredge up...
I have one beeyard just south of Athens in the town of Bishop. Supers put on in mid March were practically full last Friday. Here in my home yard….about thirty five miles north of Bishop….zip.
I expect there isn’t anything I could suggest that you haven’t already considered.
Having said that, it is pretty rare, in my experience, for a colony to come out of winter with an apparently...
They have plenty of honey?
Ha! Funny that this thread was resurrected today. If I took a photo of that yard right now….it’d look pretty much the same. Queens arrive Wednesday.
I bought 8 25lb bags at SAMS Saturday. They had full pallets of 10 and 25lb bags.
This appears legit. Florida is going to crack down on people traveling from the NY city area.
Urgent care and emergency care here are two entirely different things. Urgent care clinics take non emergency patients without an appointment. Either weekends, after hours or people who don’t have...
That's part of the point I was trying to make as well.
I think that you missed my point. Regardless of which side you are on....if you believe that the other side are a bunch of drooling morons....then you are likely the drooling moron.
Mine are beautiful!!!! I started splitting today. I love the spring!
I caught my first swarm last week. Huge!
Not particularly interested in the politics but am curious about where you got your education?
Is there anyone posting their political opinions here who believes that the half of the electorate in this country who voted for the opposing candidate are universally drooling idiots?
Does anyone posting their political opinions here believe that the expression of those opinions will change a single opposing opinion?
Trust me….not a soul has been swayed. This is futile.
You can find pretty much anything you need to know about varroa on Randy Oliver's website scientificbeekeeping.com
Two weeks ago when I was in SAM'S buying sugar there was no bottled water. One of the workers told me that when a pallet arrived they would take it to the floor and it would be mobbed and emptied in...
One of my biggest complaints about the Mann Lake feeder is that has an open cavity underneath. If I want to use it to supplement a new hive at the same time there is a nectar flow on, the bees will...
I have several of these and have been happy with them.
The main issue is that the center cap can be removed if you want to use them for dry feed. I glued them on using aquarium caulk as I would...
I wonder if they can set up a tablet in the room and have family 'visit' via skype or facetime or something similar.
I suppose it would take a boatload of tablets and clinical staff time getting it...
