    Re: Apiguard in the spring

    I do. My over-winter setup is a deep & medium.

    I move the queen down into the deep (if need be).
    Excluder is placed between the deep & medium.
    Apiguard goes on top of the medium.

  2. Re: What, if anything, does it mean to spot the queen here?

    Looks like a frame of brood from the bottom half of a double brood box setup. Hopefully it is spring time. If not, they better have some food stored for the winter!

  4. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    Do you mean $13 or $15 a quart? Your math translates to $39 or $45 a quart.

    Re: Mite Treatment

    You just want the bees to be active enough so that they remove the Apiguard and distribute it throughout the hive. Even if they cluster at night, when it warms up during the day, they'll get to work...

    Re: Mite Treatment

    Others have stated that formic acid treatments can result in brood death and even queen death. With it being mid-September, the hive needs all its brood and definitely the queen.

    Re: healty hives that refuse to store food

    Are you sure they are not getting robbed? I have tried to feed small hives using top feeders. Robber bees just go in the front door and take the syrup. No fighting to speak of.

    Re: Queenless and broodless hive, need help

    If they have rejected twice you supplying them a queen, it would suggest that the bees think they already have a queen. Either there is a queen in the box or laying workers. Instead of capped brood...

    Re: Mixing a few (5-12) gallons of syrup

    Re: Frames with drawn comb

    Say a 5 frame nuc is $175.00
    Subtract $10 for the box
    Subtract $125.00 for the bees (i.e. package)
    Subtract $10 for food & brood
    Divide remainder ($30) by 5 frames

    Answer would be $6 per frame...
