I moved them from one yard to another, about 20 miles. I typically move splits from one yard to another yard but I need to get them back to the location of the parent hives to catch the willow flow...
How long should splits be moved before moving them back to the parent hive bee yard?
I split two a couple weeks ago. Both were large hives making drone brood. It will depend on drones in your area.
I agree with whatís been stated. I think I would compress them down a nuc box apiece and see what happens. They might do better in a lot smaller area but if thereís no eggs or larvae Iíd doubt it. ...
If you donít mind me asking, what are you paying per queen delivered to you the next day?
This is what I do. I have and have had people keep bees in my yards. One guy wanted to be treatment free but his hives got treated when mine did. I finally told him so he wouldn’t think that his...
You have $9000 in 12 hives? Those are some expensive bees! Thatís like $750 a hive. Hope theyíre good ones.
Where in Florida?
What type of wand?
I passed your info on.
Where in Marion County? Iím in Ocala and have had several people inquiring if I had any to sell. (I donít)
Better be careful doing that. I tried it and it scorched the end bar on the frame in front of the hole.
I would make sure that youíre registered with the state. They can be very helpful in situations like yours. If you want the inspectors name and number PM me and Iíll get it to you or just call them....
From the dates it sounds like the queen thatís in there now is probably not the one you put there.
When I get home this weekend. Uncapped some drone brood last week and wasn’t happy with the results.
I believe I heard 12 volts in the video. A google search showed Ä480. Pricey and back to having a battery. Iíll be interested to see what other people have to say.
No not first year hives but they are this springs queens
Usually get two or three per hive like this.
Yes one did better. The one I left. I had two different brood nest though, one on each side of the excluder. When theyíre both in the same box I let them work it out. Iím checking a double queen hive...
What would your price point be?
Agreed. If theyíre in the same box theyíll work it out. I did have a hive with a queen above and one below the excluder. I left the best looking one and put the other in a nuc.
I have been running a deep/medium brood set up for a few years now. I like mine to end up in the spring with the medium in the bottom. I feel that the brood does better on the deep frames up top....
