    I'm curious if landowners in Ohio are eligible to get a tax break or credit on their property tax if they have beehives on their property?

    I think so. It seems like the larger the area the bees polish out the better the queen will be. It's always a good feeling when you open up the hive and see a large area polished out and a week or so...

    Queen excluders/fall honey

    If I run singles deep 10 frame hives with a queen excluder and one drawn shallow super in the fall will the bees work to fill the super or will they ignore it and backfill the broodnest?

    Re: Empty Hives

    What did you see when you opened the hives? Was there any cappings on the bottom boards? Any chance they got robbed out? I lost a mini nuc a couple of days ago to robbing. Maybe look for mite...

    Re: 4 way mating nucs?

    I cut my own down too. Do yourself a favor and steal a few frames of capped honey during the summer and put it back for winter feed. I probably would've lost mine if I didn't give them a frame of...

    Re: 4 way mating nucs?

    Re: How's this for a trap location?

    I've caught a few downtown myself. I think some of the chefs and hotels keep hives on the roof. Most of the ones I caught look Italian probably from packages but not all. There a few good dark...

    Re: Late June nucs....pollen pattties?

    I use megabee and feed it in liquid form. If I use patties here in the summer it will cause the small hive beetle population to explode.

    Re: Package bee funnel

    Hey, whatever works. I was thinking of doing something like that with a 5 frame nuc box. Maybe putting something slick inside so they can't grab on. Nothing like red neck ingenuity.
