  1. Re: Walkaway splitting double deeps...keep the queens? Throw on honey supers?

    "this is my opinion, may or may not be yours."
    Pretty much mine as well. A queen in a nuc is valuable, if not to you, than many others.

    A flyback split or four will get you plenty of QCs. A...
  2. Re: Walkaway splitting double deeps...keep the queens? Throw on honey supers?

    Back up and decide where you want to end up. Then make a plan.

    An extractor will un bind a honey bound hive at any time of year.

    Why are the supers off?

    Kill the old sounds like a lot of...
  3. Re: Bees Making Cross Comb on Plastic Foundation!!

    "I gave them 4 frames of capped brood." And a frame of eggs/ young open brood?

    " leaving the queen in the original location and moving the new hive 20 feet away." You will get less drifting doing...

    Re: I blame LJ for the Rose method.

    So my plan for a three day visit became a 8 day visit. Nice cell of three in the correct section. Made a 3 frame split. Found the two frames added last were stuffed with nectar not brood. Put it...

    Re: Learning Grafting

    Plenty of jelly in any drone cell. I would think from a QC is better but I am no chemist.
  6. Re: Bees Making Cross Comb on Plastic Foundation!!

    But adding a frame to the brood nest is un-natural and disturbs the brood nest. LOL
    do not try that in cold weather.
  7. Re: Quality Queen Cells with Small Nuc as Cell Starter?

    Interesting comment above.
    I can't think of a superseder cell from a cup that I've seen. Few cups that get started get torn down.

    It is possible to raise a poor queen from any method used, that I...

    Re: I blame LJ for the Rose method.

    "Dont put your heart in a box of pine!"

    We must grow them crooked in Maine. When the heart is in on one end and out on the other. You can't go wrong and you can't go right at the same time.

    Re: Ubuntu

    Apparently your ground is closer than mine.
    The hardware is fine, it's the software that gets windmilled through the money machine.

    (If it ain't broke buy a new one)

    Re: Ubuntu

    I have not taken the time to actually use it beyond making mirror images. I have mint version installed in a separate partition. Bailed me out several times to boot into mint when windows 10 is...

    Re: I blame LJ for the Rose method.

    I really do not blame LJ, nor the method. It is a vertical split with a little more isolation or a Snel with a little less.

    In fairness, the swarm is on me, and I have still gotten at least (2)...

    Re: I blame LJ for the Rose method.

    Best to work with your successes before experimenting.

    I am working with a 1 hive sample, hate to extend observations too far.
    I am toying with giving her more space by putting another box under...

    I blame LJ for the Rose method.

    Well for setting me off on it anyway. It seems there is not "a " Rose method. I have played with it a bit am wondering what others are seeing. I am using a stand alone hive as a victim which has it's...
  15. Re: Help, Do I have Laying Workers? What's going on?

    Thinking just a swarm. Photo 1 &2 have something in the bottom of cells, but too fuzzy. Pollen or larva? If larva are they healthy looking? Not seeing LW eggs.
  16. Re: Why do drones congregate in certain hives in an Apiary?

    Virgin queen will attract a lot of drones.

    Will follow field bees in as well. Play follow the leader.
  17. Re: Split- Removed queen to resource hive, were they supercedure cells?

    Only when you learn to ignor the fact you should be worried!
  18. Re: Laying Workers-They don't read the same books we do!

    Welcome HoosierBee,

    You were right on top of the situation, I do believe length of time spent LWs matters.
  19. Re: Neighbor contesting our beekeeping permit - advice for the upcoming hearing?

    brudosd,
    Welcome for post #1.
    Glad you made the garage work for you. Not all locals are the same, neither are all garages or beekeepers.
  20. Re: Any reason to actually use "box joints" other than aesthetics?

    Is this the bragging encouraged thread? LOL
  21. Re: Neighbor contesting our beekeeping permit - advice for the upcoming hearing?

    Sarcasm that got away from me. Thought I hit "cancel".
  22. Re: Multiple splits from the same colony for better success?

    You want a large hive to raise the QCs, 4 is plenty to mate a queen, if I get your question correctly.
  23. Re: Can Laying workers be active in a hive with a virgin Queen?

    As the laying workers get suppressed it would become a better pattern.
  24. Re: Neighbor contesting our beekeeping permit - advice for the upcoming hearing?

    I disagree. The best way to convince someone of your wisdom is to punch them in the nose.

    Re: Galvanized honey extractor/sealing

    Brushed one, worked fine. Ended up two coats because I could not reach all spots with it wet. I would say spray with a brush touch up any spots you can't get. If you can hang the basket I think it...
