  1. Re: Help! I think I have a honey bee hive in my shed wall.

    No, unlike wasps, bees overwinter. In GA, they stay active most of the year. Wasp venom and bee venom are different, but enough people are allergic to bee stings that it is best not to take chances....
  2. Re: my baited swarm swarmed; did it split into two?! Could it?

    Yes, as in "this here hive ain't big enough for the two of us"

    Re: Any beekeepers sick w CV-19? SURVEY

    So, we know that as a nasal spray, it seems to work, at least in mice. Problem is that most of my bee venom is sub-Q or IM. Some of the bees have what seem like really long stingers!
  4. Re: Help! I think I have a honey bee hive in my shed wall.

    Well, that is a honey bee. Try washing the area you sprayed with soap and water and then rinse well.
    With luck, not too many of the bees will die. If the bees do survive, google bee clubs in your...
  5. Re: my baited swarm swarmed; did it split into two?! Could it?

    Most likely two virgin queens in the original swarm. When I checked on the swarm I caught last Saturday, they had divided into two distinct clusters in the hive with no bees in between. Fits the two...
  6. Re: Feeding a new package with last year's super

    I put out a medium super frame of honey that was left over from last year last night A mouse had found it and opened some cells. Today, total devastation. Most of the wax ended up on the deck and...

    Re: Cut Out Question From a Noob

    Chances are really good that that "empty" comb is actually full of eggs. The swarm may have only been there a few days. Put the feed on them and they will draw the comb out really fast. What you see...

    Re: Cut Out Question From a Noob

    Most of the bees while stay with the brood in the new location. A few may fly back. When I make a walkaway split, (brood, bees, no queen), the nurse bees stay with the brood and do not fly back to...

    Re: Any beekeepers sick w CV-19? SURVEY

    Hmmm. With a number of beekeepers still using other forms of treatments, it may be hard to show that such a correlation even exists. And then there are the treatment-free folks, would they be left in...
  10. Re: why doesn't swarm fully enter the bait box?

    Treat them like a swarm collection and get them into a clean box. Methinks it smells awfully lemony around that trap. Give em a spritz of sugar water and brush them into a shallow collection pan to...

    Re: A sign of the times

    And we wre just talking about queens at work today, not the bee kind and not the royal kind, the "other" kind. Apparently the word drag comes from Shakespearean times when all the actors were male,...

    Re: Any beekeepers sick w CV-19? SURVEY

    I liked the 1967 film adaptation of this novel, never read the book though.
    Jonsl, while correlation and causation are indeed independent, correlation leads us to design experiments to determin...

    Re: Cut Out Question From a Noob

    If you are not familiar with the 628 Dirt Rooster, spend some time watching his Y tube videos to get an idea what to do. Your plan is basically sound with the exception of the bee brush. Quick way to...
  15. Re: why doesn't swarm fully enter the bait box?

    How much LGO did you apply and how long ago? Sometimes they will be attracted to the box but not move in if the scent is still too strong.
  16. Re: Thoughts on locating captured swarm back into same bee yard?

    Last year I hived four of my known swarms (shaken out of the trees) and put them on a stand just a few feet from their original hives. All four stayed put on drawn comb only.

    Amen. That is what communities do, help each other out. The willingness to help though is instilled in us by our upbringing and life experiences. It is not something that can be forced.

  18. Re: How to be bee friendly while excluding small birds

    Jim, I am not sure about the bumbles, but honey bees can easily navigate through 1/2" mesh openings or #2 hardware cloth.

    Usually package orders are placed much earlier to assure getting bees. Mountain Sweet Honey appears to have packages still available so you are in luck. I do not know how your weather is in the...

    Re: Strange bee poo

    I would say normal too if you are feeding pollen sub patties. Weather here has been good, but with rain and all, not every day is a flying day. When the temps come up, the cars are covered in poop...

    Re: Understanding varroa treatment

    Sorry, got the chicken/egg thing backwards. I guess the ProVap is also a knock off of the Sublimox too?
