    Re: Feisty bees are more hygienic?

    Russians can be aggressive, but they generally don't chase more than 50 yards.

    Re: How to deal with efb/ afb

    You could call your state inspector.

    You may want to scrape back the comb and take a good picture with flashlight etc.

    EFB larva melt, harden, and form scales that are easily removable.

    I...

    While I was out in the yard today taking pictures, I went ahead and gave all of the hives a Oxalic vapor treatment. Before I did that, I did run a mite test on the one hive that is still...

    Re: How to deal with efb/ afb

    30 mites per 200 bees?

    I think that's all I needed to read.

    What exactly did you do to treat for mites in the fall and winter?

    Could you provide us with photographs?
  9. Re: OSBN - Opening the Sides of the Brood Nest

    Bump. I've seen colonies put on a full super of honey and draw out 2 OSBN deep frames now without swarming.

    Other colonies have drawn out 2 mediums frames AND 2 deep frames and still have not...

    Re: Birds

    The biggest danger are people mowing their clover lawns down into the dirt.

    Mowers are the biggest danger to bees.

    If you're gonna go after anyone, go after the people mowing their lawns.
  11. Re: Why do drones congregate in certain hives in an Apiary?

    If we're going to make those comparisons, we can go down the road of the praying mantis.

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    I've lived in the Northeast most of my life, and I've never seen a year where the black locust didn't bloom.

    Temperatures got down into the mid 20s in the middle of May when the apples were...

    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    Anyone else getting a crappy year?

    We've had sunny warm weather and all the flowers on trees they used for honey got killed from the freeze in the middle of may.

    For example, black locust...

    Snow in June?
  16. Re: OSBN - Opening the Sides of the Brood Nest

    In a colony strong enough to expand the brood out to the edge of the box, I've found they're also strong enough to swarm without having to deal with OSBN.

    I've had excellent success with OSBN as...

    Re: Is Mann Lake operational right now?

    Their online site is working - I made an order and they shipped like they normally would.
  18. Re: needing help with diagnosis - is it okay to duplicate a post in another forum?

    When EFB develops into a serious issue, it'll be very obvious.
  19. Re: hive not healthy; how to diagnose? Are there any labs doing diagnostic testing?

    Maybe mites or a really crappy queen?
  20. Re: hive not healthy; how to diagnose? Are there any labs doing diagnostic testing?

    Can you take some pictures of the comb and especially the uncapped larva?

    More photos the better.

    Re: Spraying Apple trees near bees?

    It will absolutely harm the bees.

    I'd pick a day with zero wind and be very careful about making sure the poison doesn't drift. You don't need to screen the bees, but you need to to be extra...
  22. Re: EFB is a major pain, but it's easily treatable.

    I don't think it's wise to be remotely complacent about an EFB outbreak.

    My inspector in PA diagnosed my colonies with EFB and told me to treat with OTC.

    Re: Johno's Easy Vap - Vaporizer

    Probably still works, no?
  25. Re: EFB is a major pain, but it's easily treatable.

    Aggressive OTC treatment is the only method that I've found to work.

    It's incredibly contagious and infects nearby colonies like clockwork.
