  2. Re: Feed or No-Feed - That is the question

    I would agree with J.Lee. Do you know if you have a queen or brood? If you only saw one frame of honey, that could be due impart to the lack of bees from being queenless. Also have you treated for...
  3. Re: Weak hive... 5 over 5 nuc for wintering option?

  11. Re: Device to sweep of bees - interesting

    Thinking out loud about this... Couldn't you use air in the same manner as a Dyson hand dryer to remove bees as well? Obviously not has forcefully as those dryers are.
  12. Re: What actually works to convince Newbees to treat mites ?

    Yes I think you have pointed an interesting topic. The water, nectar, pollen sources all have a great potential to contaminated by their environment. There are some people...
  15. Re: Sap Beetles - should i be concerned?

    Re: Should I extract bees now?

    Too late in the season to really be fooling with getting the bees out. You won't have great success getting them prepped for winter. They would have a better chance with their own hive that they...
