    Re: What to do?

    The thing is, even after all the convolutions, this is still a very strong hive.

    Re: What to do?

    One looks like a virgin emerged. the others were torn down. I'm guessing the first one out killed the others and then the bees tore them down.

    Re: What to do?

    Well, a day late and a dollar short. I had capped queen cells on Saturday and today they are empty. Hopefully things work out. If not I'll combine with a weaker hive.

    Re: Formic Pro deadouts

    I have never had an issue with Formic Pro but I tend to be extra cautious with it. I only apply one pad even on a double deep with a honey super on top. Follow the first pad with a second at 10...

    Re: Plastic ????

    You could also try wax foundation with imbedded wires. They will probably hold up better during the extraction.
  12. Re: Rant: People really need to stop mowing lawns every single week.

    My town's ordinance says that weeds need to be kept below 18" so that leaves a lot of leeway for doing what you want to do. Also, they have a 20 acre park behind the town hall that they keep as a...

    Re: A hive swarmed and then..

    My experience is that I have had very few DWV infected bees. Not sure what point the researchers are trying to prove. The other viruses are plenty bad that are transmitted by mites and you still...

    Just commenting on the fact that I deleted my own post. Case of self censorship. I think I was violating the rules of the forum and it was a wasted comment anyway. At any rate good luck!
