  1. Re: "asconded", ditched, deserted, left, whatever...

    The term “hatch” or “born” are not accurate, so I always used the term “emerge” to describe the arrival of a fully developed bee after the pupa stage. Only recently I learned the correct term is...

    Re: Trying To Save A Hive Question (Noob)

    If available, spend a little time watching an observation hive. The queen’s movement is more readily observed, and learned. When doing the initial gross examination of a frame, I look for any...

    Re: Trying To Save A Hive Question (Noob)

    Adding a frame with eggs appears to be your best solution, and it cannot hurt.

    Re: Generator use for Oxalic Acid

    I use myATV’s battery as the electrical source. Fun to drive, and serves second function without lugging batteries.
  6. Re: New study looks at quantity of food in caste determination

    Thanks for the link. I was especially pleased when I read the source of bees came from nine (9) hives near Fargo, North Dakota. So far as I know, no publicity about this study was generated in our...

    Re: Snap decisions in the apiary

    May sound strange, but whenever one of those questions pop up, ask yourself the posed question out loud. And then answer out loud. It tends to make you first think about all of the variables, and...

    Re: Jars Made in China

    Covid-19 is already in Illinois, and I have never heard of anyone getting infected by contaminated glass. Everyone would be better off understanding it is a virus, not Chinese. Never hurts to wash...

    Re: Giving queens names

    I tell kids that I name all of my bees, and then I make a few remarks, using their names or names known to them, like, “Oh, there’s Sarah 124”, or “Watch Rachel 435 bring some pollen to the hive”. ...

    “If you see eggs”, you should be good to go; “no eggs”, no go.

    Re: Shed honey house

    If it’s on YouTube, why ask legal questions? Or questions concerning health or hygiene?
  15. Re: Recommendations for a ventilated suit with a round veil?

    It’s Easter, and I try not to offend Catholics - ever. I suspect there is more than a little difference between “Jesuits” and “bee suits”, but auto-correct should not be forgiven. It was a fun read.

    Re: Orienting question

    Orientation for bees is the onset of the last stage of colony tasks - that of a forager, the most dangerous job. They would be the equivalent of sixty (60) year olds getting their driver’s license...

    Re: Should I split? Will it work?

    Welcome again, but I believe your course of action should be re-locating the queen (and bees), not queen cells. Let me explain as if I were the old queen: “I have quit laying eggs, and slimmed...

    Please edit your profile to identify your location. All beekeeping is local; your location helps understand both inquiry and answer.

    Re: Langstroth 8-Frame space question

    Fight the urge to use nine (9) frames in an eight (8) frame box. It might seem appropriate for about six (6) weeks, and then the reality of added propolis, drawn comb, and burr comb will cause...
  22. Re: Will lack of early morning sun negatively affect an apiary?

    That early morning light, and appropriate temperature, gets my hives going in the morning - just like necessary coffee.
