    Re: Storing used frames

    I freeze all mine then store the ones that have brood cocoons/pollen bits in them with Paramoth, then the empty ones I just stack up in the light. I dye all my sugar syrup blue, so you know it's not...
  2. Re: Introducing emerged virgin queens in mating nucs.

    I think you just drop her on the comb, my YouTube buddy John made a good video about it.

    Re: Swarm Without A Queen?

    My first swarm this year had no queen, could have had a virgin, that never came back I guess, I never saw it.

    Re: Saskatraz....any feedback?

    I bought 10 OHB Saskatraz last year, I have one left, they don't get mated as well I don't think. I made plenty of daughters from em, and they rock.
  10. Re: Think hive swarmed, what can I do with all those queen cells?

    no matter I've got a queen, can put it somewhere else, sell it, add frames of brood to it etc.
  11. Re: Think hive swarmed, what can I do with all those queen cells?

    How many frames of bees you have left? I make 2 framers and put a frame with a cell and bees in it, come back a month later to a laying queen usually.

    Re: How to boost a swarm?

    I do all the time, just make sure there's no queen on it, and smoke heavily to mask the scent of the new nurse bees, or just shake them all off.

  15. Re: New bee package all dead within two weeks of putting in hive.

    I'd say moth balls, you might try a nuc out, Bruce's Bees on Youtube is in Dothan, He might sell you one, has 5,000 subs on YT.

    Your lucky, or there's a sorry beekeeper a mile away:) I never caught a thing till I put drawn comb in a box, but only in my 2nd year, I never even saw a scout bee without it.

    Re: Does dong a bunch of walk away Nuc splits count as queen rearing?

    You'll never catch bees without drawn comb/ propolis, wax.
  20. Re: Does dong a bunch of walk away Nuc splits count as queen rearing?

    Now that's the way to do it, can you just throw her back in there without reintroducing her? and will it stop the swarm impulse?
  21. Re: Does dong a bunch of walk away Nuc splits count as queen rearing?

    That would be crazy using a 2 frame to do it all,I was thinking the way I've been doing it was right, those 2 framers are awesome if you keep a robbing screen on them.
  22. Re: Does dong a bunch of walk away Nuc splits count as queen rearing?

    I pull the queen and a couple of frames of brood to create a swarm effect, I put her in a nuc to start over. There's a whole hive full of resources to make a new queen out of countless options. after...

    Re: Buying nucs is hit or miss

    Makes sense, when I opened it up, I expected a 1000 bees to rush out, I saw maybe 5 and they just stayed there, I saw a few doing orientation flights later on, not many.




    Thanks, I still...

    Re: Selling five frame Nucs.

    I would probably sell them on Craigslist, just get a box and sell them for $150-$180 or what everyone else is selling it for around you.
