    Re: Split Timing

    If you see drone cells but no swarm cells;
    Then lift up your top and set on a new bottom. Move your queen body to a new spot. Put the top at the old location. Basically you get your swarm, a brood...

    Linda,
    Respect you for the step back. Doubling down on a misstep is so in vogue today.

    Re: Trading Resources in Mating Nucs

    You can move frames and bees around quite freely. You can shake bees in front of a hive. The bees know the difference between a lost bee and an invader. They accept orphans / dropins very readily....

    A bit more at 5.1.1.1.5 but not what I was remembering. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK200983/

    Re: Queen Not Laying Coming Out of Winter

    But that is not the whole story or northern beekeepers would come out of winter with a pile of LW hives.

    There was an earlier post about a chemical in pollen or royal jelly that also suppressed...

    Re: Queen Not Laying Coming Out of Winter

    What is young? It does appear to be true that a hive can refuse to raise a queen and still not go LWs. Maybe the cutoff is middle aged. As young as they feel.
    Still an interesting observation that...

    Cotton Gloves for PPE

    If you are at the point of wearing gloves to shop is cotton a good layman's choice? Not there yet, but closer county by county. Leave them lie for a few days or throw them in the wash. Medical...

    Re: Queen Not Laying Coming Out of Winter

    What have you got now? A queen you have no faith in and some bees of limited value.

    Re: Queen Not Laying Coming Out of Winter

    It is not brood that suppresses LW in the winter. Brood might kick her off laying, it seems to with an introduced queen that is slow or with a newly mated queen.

    I am not saying there is no shared fault. Local fault goes down to individuals as well. Been to the hardware store, Lowes, & Walmart myself.

    The Feds cannot respond fast enough to local problems, and should not be expected to.

    In what sense is Covid a local problem?

    Pandemic team question is a bit of misdirection itself. What was done or not done with warnings is a valid question.
