  1. Re: Recommended coffee brands (fine, tea brands too)

    Hubby's a Folger's guy, but I really like the various blends from Mystic Monk Coffee in Wyoming. Very flavorful. :)
  2. Re: Question for Denver area beeks re: new swarm

    Wow everybody, thank you so much!

    My blackberries are also done blooming, and all the raspberries died (I just can't seem to get raspberries to grow). But we do live within a mile of Lake Rhoda,...
  3. Re: Question for Denver area beeks re: new swarm

    Lol, thanks :) I think the hive is probably okay - it's a 10-frame double deep Langstroth, which they chose over a single deep sitting right next to it. (I'm hoping that means the swarm was big...
  4. Question for Denver area beeks re: new swarm

    Hi all,

    We lucked out! A swarm moved into our deadout hive Sunday afternoon, so we are back in beekeeping! (Last year I'd had one hive and had attempted a split, which failed, so we had one hive...

    First year trying; 1/2 (although it took several months)...

    These were bait hives from deadouts, southeast-facing, one double deep and one single deep, both baited with Swarm Commander. The swarm...

    Re: Front Range roller coaster - 2018

    Just wondering, are you guys seeing a lot fewer bees flying around in general this spring than, say, last year? I'm still hoping for a swarm or two, but not only have there been only a very few...

    Re: Front Range roller coaster - 2018

    A few days ago we were hit by our first hailstorm of the season. No damage that I can see, fortunately - it wasn't like last year's May hailstorm - these stones were only about nickel diameter,...
  9. Re: Best ways to prep a deadout to become a swarm trap?

    I have enough boxes for two hives, wasn't able to get them both buzzing at the same time though (without buying two packages... kind of outside our budget... and my attempt at a split didn't work). ...
  10. Best ways to prep a deadout to become a swarm trap?

    Hi all,

    So the second year's try with package bees failed too, and I can't afford another package :( But - reading some other threads, it sounds as if some of you have had success with swarms...

    Dec. 12 and it's 67 degrees!! Hubby came in (he's retired and I'm home sick from work today) and said "the union is agitating out there... their feeder is empty", so I mixed up some 2:1 and...

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    Checked the hive for the first time in quite a while. (Mid-60s today, so I figured it was safe.) We've had a warm dry fall so far and I was concerned that the bees might be going thru their stores...

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    Weather forecast is much cooler for the next 10 days at least, highs to hover in high 70s/low 80s, so I seized the opportunity to put a MAQS in the active hive. Cleaned out the empty hive (ants but...

    Re: Bee genetics question

    Could the yellow drone have come in the package? The one I installed last week had a number of drones in it that I saw while hiving it.
