    Re: Feeding honey in winter

    it would be awful hard to make honey into candy without scorching it as thereís little moisture to bring it up to soft set temps (240F).

    Re: Queen Flew Away Today (Nov 30)

    Hope for the best, expect the worst. When queens fly they do a quick orientation, thatís why you want to stand by the hive with the lid off for a while. The scent is raising off the hive and you are...

    Re: Well this might change things!

    I have to disagree. With fresh comb it’s not a problem, they’ll work the wax to their liking. Older comb has to have the layers of cocoons broken away to form a ledge for the bees to start the cells...

    Re: Well this might change things!

    Ya, thatís what I like about Mel Disselkoenís method (OTS) of raising queens. Make notches in the comb where the right ages larvae are and let the bees decide with little intervention.
