    Re: multiple queens from production hives

    Yes MSL, just moving frames with cells to a Coats' or better yet in my opinion a 'Palmer type' split box will make queens... really good queens if you even remotely know what your doing.

    Re: multiple queens from production hives

    Getting back to this, bottom line is: the desired outcome did not happen.

    The goal was to raise two 'extra' queens in the supper while maintaining the original queens brood nest in the bottom -...

  5. Re: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times- wisdom and folly from 2019

    The worst of times: This spring I went and open up what I thought was going to be a queen I was going to breed from this year. I breed her last summer and her hive was exactly what I want in my...

    Re: Carl Killion's Honey in the Comb

    I'm amazed at how often he refers to CC Miller which I will have to pull back out and reread.

    Re: Bee Escape Not Working

    Some hive just do not want to give up what they consider their resources... can't really blame them.

    I set my wet boxes from last pull, back up over light hives and they clean them up nice.

    hot knife issues

    Went to a hot knife this year, but I am not sure it is working properly.

    Re: Buying an Extractor....

    Alan, there is quite a bit of good advise here....
    Personally, I never did C&S, I wanted the drawn comb as a resource to give back to the hive. For my first several years, we just did a 2F hand...

    Re: Single Brood Box Question

    The cluster will move up as they go through winter (though I bet here in the mountains it is much different than Florida) and you would endanger the queen being trapped below and outside of the...
  12. Re: Do you clean and reuse plastic foundation or throw them away?

    Well drawn comb is far to valuable to destroy.

    Badly drawn/drone on worker, smashed, really old, badly infested, yes. After scraping down and adding to melt, I scrub off what I can with a stiff...

    1. How to make a double nuc, exactly? Do I just nail a piece of wood in the middle of a 10 frame box? Before box assembly, I run a dado blade down the middle of the end set at 1/8 in, OR after...

    Re: New one for me... thoughts?

    Going back to revisit it. I am going to flex the combs apart and look for capped brood... if the queen is laying out there then there probably is no in there, eh?!

    Re: Extracting honey for comb

    Congrats on your first cut-out!

    MB nailed it, crush and strain.
    One idea for you- on cut-outs where there isn't much honey, I give it back to them but above the crown board in an empty box....

    kjmclark, beekeeping is very local, could you please put your location in your information.

    This time of year (for me), ALL frames go back on the hives ASAP, foundation in slots 3 & 7.

    Re: Todays Honey Prices!

    Sectional density! most of my honey hits 22oz+ at the fill line in a pint mason jar. However, I do have one apiary where I capture a tree nectar based honey that will barely hit 20oz in a pint jar!
