    Re: Brood swapping/requeen struggle

    I'd bet you have a young queen in there somewhere, only been 10-12 days so eggs should show soon.

    To hedge your bet, I'd put in a frame with as young of eggs as I could find, doesn't have to be a...

    Re: How dangerous are hay-field herbicides ?

    Fert and herbicide are pretty "normal". My 1st of the year was sprayed liquid just to allow the herbicide to be mixed and applied at the same time as the liquid fertilizer. Never needed herbicide...

    Re: Push in cage mistake

    That is one of the reason I use a push in, that and I can have some ornery hives that need re-queened. I never removed a frame since my 8 framers have enough outside space I can steal for it, but...

    Re: How dangerous are hay-field herbicides ?

    This^^^^

    When I had hay fields and AW showed up, you had to act fast and the insecticides can be bad mojo for bees. Most times it depended on what the ag store had ready to put out, but I recall...

    Re: Push in cage mistake

    Bees outside the cage will also feed them, I wouldn't worry about it as long as outside bees have room to get around the outside of the cage for only 4 days.
    I have never had to keep a cage in...
  13. Re: quick install advice: queen cage has no candy, keep package as-is for 3 days???

    I agree with Saltybee. If any complications arise, you want to be able to say you followed their directions to a "T".

    Re: Giving queens names

    LJ, I must have a few of those dames.:D

    In solidarity with my "fortnight" friend, I will name the next queen to swarm, leaving all she had "Meghan":pk:
  15. Re: My first inspection of the year, would you have acted differently?

    Since all the eggs/brood are now in the bottom box and most of the nurse bees likely made the swap with the bees, I'd let it roll as is for now.

    Re: How soon can I introduce new queen

    You can do as you're thinking just fine. A couple of things to consider to "hedge your bet" so to speak.
    1, cork or tape off the candy for a day or so to slow her release for a extra day or two. ...

    Re: Bee friendly garden pesticides?

    For chewing pest, find some treatment with Spinosad, Spray in evening after bees are gone, harmless to them when it dries. Clay powder also works (forgot the current term).
