    Re: Why?

    With all due respect, from the pictures shown, there is nothing that can/should be salvaged except drawn comb.

    Re: Why?

    Mite crash and a colony robbed dry. :(

    Sorry, there's pretty much nothing you can do now.

    Re: Need advice on brood pattern

    Don't feed too much yet unless you wish to risk restricting the queen's laying. Keep a close eye on em'.

    Good luck.

    Re: Adding a super

    It was stated that 7 of 10 frames in the upper deep are drawn out. Should cgeronimo rotate those frames into the middle to get them drawn out, first? Before adding a super.
  8. Re: I caught a pretty big swarm yesterday. should i have let them fly?

    If you have an old dark brood comb, let the queen out on it so she can lay right away and anchor the colony. (If the queen is mated.)
  9. Re: I caught a pretty big swarm yesterday. should i have let them fly?

    If they really do want to leave now, what will stop them from leaving in 2 days?

    Re: Hate this new format

    The desktop ads are perfectly fine by me. But the new banner ads in between posts on mobile is a bit more than I'd wish.

    (the old ads related to beekeeping are great ... just so many new trashy...

    Re: Confirmed Killer

    We call those insects "Bee Killers."
    But dragonflies still do eat bees. I've seen it!

    Re: Drawing comb

    I've found that the bees will always do what they want with the syrup whether or not I agree. If they're going to backfill, they will. If they're going to draw comb, they'll do so.
