    I can't answer your question specifically, but I can say that I have 5 colonies. 4 of them are very docile. They move about normally. Sometimes I'm not even sure they know I'm there. But, the 5th...

    Re: To make a queen

    I was wondering because I placed a brood frame in a queenless hive on the 8th. They had no brood. I installed a caged mated queen on the 16th and she was released yesterday but I inspected them on...

    I'm new to beekeeping and just had a hive requeen itself. My 6 year old son and I actually got to watch her emerge from her cell on 8/12. I don't want them to requeen so I have ordered a queen that...
