    Drones and tape

    I taped55107 off the entrance to my hive to do an oxalic acid treatment. I forgot to take the tape off. I checked the hive today and found that the tape had caught almost exclusively drones. I don't...

    Re: Epi-Pen

    Dchap, that’s what I did. Don’t accidentally draw up the wrong dose. If you are going down that road then get some diphenhydramine too. Much less risk. No heart attack. I still think the risk...

    Re: Requeening above an excluder

    I had success with using a box above a queen excluder as a cell finisher. I put hair rollers on the finished cells to prevent conflict on emergence.
  6. Re: The use of 48hr queen cells to spread resistant genetics

    This is out dated, But punctuation CAN make a difference. I already wrote so I’m posting it! LOL!!

    Don’t discuss “16 drones.” It confuses the discussion since there are 16 chromosomes. Use a...

    Re: Simplest Way to Build Frames

    Or use the deep boxes like a top bar hive. Just put a vertical piece in the center of each for added comb strength. Not good for spinning honey out but good for brood comb and honey comb.

    Re: Queen banking

    A couple of questions:
    Why do you cage the queen of the colony?
    How long will banking work?
  14. Re: The interesting way this Russian man builds his bee boxes.

    Mucho trabajo just to incorporate reeds. I think it’s a harpy avoidance technique.
    Once I saw a Russian guy who wasn’t wearing camouflage or a track suit or a leather jacket. Just kidding, it...
  15. Re: Splitting the hive up completely into new nucleus colonies

    Why do you want to find the queens? If you don’t plan to requeen all the hives you could just split them. Or just split a few colonies and move the queen cells that are formed to nucs with some...

    Re: Laying worker?

    Had the same issue. If no worker brood then what? You have already said what I think is the only possibility. Now what do you plan to do?

    Re: Too early to split?

    Consider how much more difficult it would be to deal with this purchaser. I rented a house to a woman who took an hour to read a boiler plate rental agreement. She was a pain in the neck. You might...

    Re: 2020 How was your winter?

    Perfect winter. 100% survival of both hives. Until a week ago.

    Then:
    Drone laying queen in hive 1.
    Then missing queen in hive 1.
    Then new queen which flew off when I marked her in hive 1....
