  2. Re: Queen not laying after relocation of hive

    Grozzie2 - I just wanted to share with you that I do believe you were right on the money about my queen. I checked on that colony yesterday and found they were doing great. The queen was laying well...
  3. Re: Queen not laying after relocation of hive

    I did not think about that possibility. If that's the case I hope there's still enough drones around for her to mate. I guess another couple of weeks will tell.
  4. Queen not laying after relocation of hive

    About three weeks ago I moved a couple of hives about 30 miles to my daughter's property. When I checked on them yesterday two were doing very well but one was not. When I removed the top cover,...

    Re: Can I cut out and move queen cell?

    I was pretty sure I didn't have the queen in the split and today when I checked again I did not find the queen in the split. I also checked the hive that the split came from and did find the queen...

    Can I cut out and move queen cell?

    I did a couple of splits earlier this week. When I checked today one has not made any queen cells and the other made over a dozen. They are on plastic foundation - see photo. What's the chance of...

    Re: Be careful where you store your supers

    Did the same thing today. Took two honey frames from a colony so I could add empty comb the queen needed. I set them on the picnic table "for a minute" while I put some things away. About an hour...

    Re: How is my OAV treatment logic?

    That's the schedule I started following this year and I believe it to be more effective in reducting in mite loads.

    Re: Homemade bee repellant

    You are right, it is cheaper to buy the bee quick and next time I will. This time I didn't have anything on hand and needed to get the last of the honey I was taking before doing OAV mite treatment. ...

    Re: Homemade bee repellant

    To move the bees off honey supers I made a mix of 1 oz. tea tree oil, 1 oz. almond extract and about 6 oz. rubbing alcohol. I sprayed it on a home made fume board and it worked like a charm clearing...

    Re: Hive to water - best distance?

    I have 2 bird baths filled with rocks and water located next to each other about 25-30' from the hives. The bird baths are pretty much identical except for one being made of metal and other plastic....

    Re: Scouting Behavior

    Most likely they found a location that suits them better. Other scout bees returning to the hive probably gave a stronger waggle dance for another location so activity fell off at your location and...

    Learned that myself this year, going from 2 to 9 in about 3 months.
  17. Re: how to make the bees drink the water?

    I have 2 identical bird baths, both with rocks and pebbles in the water, sitting about 8' apart and both about 20' from my hives. One is heavily used by the bees and the other almost never. Only...
  18. Re: Drawn Comb- how to get more as a new beekeeper?

    This is probably obvious (except to the absent minded like me), but be sure you have a good supply of bottom boards and tops too. When I went to do splits I thought I had everything I needed only...

    I've too have read this and heard it from others, that honey supers should be removed before doing any OA treatments. I also read an article in in the American Bee Journal, September 2016, “Keeping...
