  5. Re: Leaving two queen cells in a hive!

    Are you sure the swarm is from one of your hives.
    The reason why you destroy all but 2 queen cells is so the hive doesn't swarm out and leave you with no bees.

    Re: Harvesting honey

    The bees don't want you to take any of their honey but you can take the frames as they are capped it won't hurt anything.
  7. Re: Swam and Supersedure at the same time?

    I would not leave all of the queen cells. get rid of all but two or three. if not they may swarm several time leaving you with no bees.
  8. Re: Swam and Supersedure at the same time?

    Swarm cells can be any where on the frame so they are all swarm cells .If they were supercedure cells there would only be a few in the middle of the frame. Sounds like they are trying to swarm.
  9. Re: Massive, colossal nuc failure. What are our options now?

    If they don't have laying queens in 10 days give them a frame of young larva an eggs they will make a queen.
  10. Re: Adding 2nd Brood box to Walk Away split

    You can check them in 10 days after you split .by then they should have caped queen cells.they know they are queenless as soon as you move the queen.
  11. Re: Adding 2nd Brood box to Walk Away split

  15. Re: Weird mites/bugs in supercedure cell?

    If this was me I would make a split with the queen and also get rid of all but two or three queen cells to make a new queen.
  16. Re: Will a swarm take over a weak hive?

    Yes they will I had one try to take over one of my hives but the hive was strong enough to fend off the swarm.
  17. Re: adding queen but top super full of honey

    You could extract the honey and put the empty frames back in the hive.but the bees will likely use the honey to raise New bees.
  18. Re: bought new queen, but queen cells present

    They won't accept a new queen unless they are hopelessly queenless. You need to destroy queen cells and then in 10 days go into hive and destroy cells again. If they have a way to make a queen they...
