That would be nice.
I see people talking about weekly inspections, about rotating boxes
and it makes me wonder, does everyone
do this? Is there anyone else out there
that operates on the principal of just
We really don't have to worry about Africanized bees here in East Tennessee, so that is a non issue.
I for one am not doing anything to prevent mine from swarming. If
they swarm I will lose some production it is true but I will gain more
bees. If you split them all you are doing is making a swarm...
it states right on the instructions that it kills male and female.
You are not supposed to put them on top per directions, the go on top of the brood chambers.
I see no where in the directions where it states to add extra ventilation. You add them on top of the brood chamber
and leave the bottom entrance completely open, no reducers, no mouse guards. You...
What ventilation are you talking about? The only ventilation I have is an unrestricted bottom entrance the width of the hive.
And yet another really useful comment. I have used Formic and have no issues.
I cant place it(sorry 3 hours of sleep in the last 36...It haunt season), but some were there was a study showing FA contaminated the honey more the OA, penetrating the cappings and all that… 3 hours...
I would like to see a source for that , from what I can find thermal kills about 80 percent, another treatment 12 days later another 80 percent of remaining mites for a total kill of 95 percent. I...
Something to remember. The bees aren't your friends, they don't know you, they are not pets, and they can be mild one day and the next day they can light you up.
Also, I have know proof of it but...
I know this was started a long time ago, but you didn't get
a nuc. You got what probably was a 2 pound package in a
I have the deep frames, medium with foundation is
25.00. I don't think I want to paint Cyprus.
Found these online about 3 hours away. Quite a drive but they are complete except for frames. Almost forgot, 69.00.
I am between Lafollette and Middlesboro , KY. We are out in the county and have no restrictions either. As far as I can tell.
I never have seen any laws concerning the number of hives. What part of Tn are you in I am in East TN myself.
This is true, I used lemon grass oil, my swarm commander hasn't arrived yet.
I am thinking it is too early but just got through hanging a swarm trap. My mother said she had a honey bee flying around so I thought worth a shot. We will see what happens.
What I was wondering about was where people say pollen doesn't cause build up unless there is nectar coming in also. Then again, if they are bringing pollen in there is probably nectar available also.
I have been reading and see people saying pollen patties cause brood build up . Then I read and see it stated that brood build up won't occur without a nectar flow and until days lengthen. This seems...
I am sorry, I should have stated that I am assuming the brood box to be full. They have over wintered in just a single deep. They have been eating sugar patties all winter.Iwill be checking before...
I am still new at this and I am trying to determine when would be the best time to add a super to a single deep brood box. I am in hardiness zone 6 b. I am thinking in Mid March or I may add as soon...
There are not any commercial bees around me....to the best of my knowledge. The nearest bees around me I think are about 10 miles. No one here has any bees, I am hoping to be able to catch a couple...
Oh my Lord what have I done? I didn't think about it, but I have been building nucs, mini nucs, regular deeps.... it's like quick sand isn't it? I have 10 swarm traps ready to go and my wife is...
