    This is the reason I've always used hive top feeders, they're more expensive, or build your own as I did. In the spring, even if the temp. dips, when it comes back up, the syrup is there...

    Re: Distance to move a split hive

    I've only done three splits, all moved two feet away and all were successful. As to which one ended up with more foragers, it's kind of a moot point isn't it? I thought the idea of a split was...

    Re: Gonna sell out

    Yeah, grew up on and still own a farm, if you get to where you can't take care of your livestock properly, it's time. I'm kind of on the fence about selling to a newbee, agree it would be nice to...

    Re: Found an abandoned hive

    Question is, what do you want to do? Order a package or Nuc in the spring and get into beekeeping? You should be able to scrape and paint the boxes, SBB, and top, that's part of beekeeping anyway. ...
