    Re: Bloom moving north, pear, plum, and peach

    Lots of pollen blowing here. We missed the heavy winds Sunday but got a lot of driving rain. I'm not sure it got as cold down here as they were predicting. 48 and sunshine right now.

  5. Re: Did I apply it right and what to do now? Swarm commander.

    i used the spray last year and this year but i just sprayed a little on a frame before setting out the trap and then one spray on the entrance. I think i was 3/5 last year (1st year trapping). i'm...

    Swarm

    One of my hives is on the edge of a field that stays pretty wet and since we have been getting steady rain for the past 3-4 weeks I haven't been able to cross the field to check them. Today, I was...

    I'm not doing anything special with mine. I always leave a brick on top of them, so it will stay on but I'm not doing anything else.

    Re: Swarm Caught

    Re: Getting bees to draw out honey supers

    i'm having the same issue with one of my hives. I removed the queen excluder (have heard them called honey excluders) in hopes that may have been stopping them from going up.

    Re: Small Queen

    She looked just a little smaller than the queen in your picture. Thanks for posting that. I'll give her a couple weeks then check in on her again.

    Thanks for all the advice!!
