    Re: Bt - Safe to use near bees?

    So the BT available from Home Depot and/or Lowes, etc. is not the right stuff?

    thanks

    Re: Timing on a new split

    well... here's the rest of the saga. Sorry if this seems like a trivial subject, but in case any other new beekeepers out there get themselves into my predicament, perhaps my story will help.

    Re: Timing on a new split

    Thanks for the replies. I was able to dodge the rain today and checked the nuc when I got home. Queen cage empty and spotted the queen right away. Transferred the nuc frames to the hive it was...

    Re: Timing on a new split

    So here's what I really want to know. I find all sorts of good instructions on installing a nuc in a hive whether from a split (also lots of good instruction on how to do that) or from a purchased...

    Timing on a new split

    I got a free nuc full of bees this morning from a neighbor beekeeper (nice, eh?). I bought a new queen yesterday. I have the bees in a cool spot in the closed nuc box in the garage and I want to...
  8. Re: Don't worry too much about the location of a bait hive / swarm trap

    Excellent replies, all! Yes, i'm interested not in a swarm coming from my colony to a nearby baited trap, but the potential of a swarm coming from the bees i know are within a half mile of here...
  9. Re: Don't worry too much about the location of a bait hive / swarm trap

    I just wondered if there was any scientific or semi-scientific guidance as to whether swarming bees will take up residence in close proximity to an existing colony. I know I can get my neighbor's...
  10. Re: Don't worry too much about the location of a bait hive / swarm trap

    Guess i'll just have to keep it baited and wait. I'm in the middle of downtown Orlando so who knows what these "city bees" will do? I know there are other registered hives within half a mile of...
  11. Re: Don't worry too much about the location of a bait hive / swarm trap

    Thanks, Tim. I'm not so much looking to trap a swarm coming out of my own hive as luring a swarm from a feral hive or another bee yard some distance away. I was thinking maybe they wouldn't be...

    Re: Swarm Trooper?

    Interesting discussion. I have one in my guava tree out back right now. I worried about the fact that, even though the exterior is corrugated plasticized stuff, (like a yard sale sign or an EzNuc),...
  16. Re: Don't worry too much about the location of a bait hive / swarm trap

    I'm new to beekeeping (1 year and change). I got a Swarm Trooper for Christmas and put it out with some old frames and lemon grass oil. My question is, I have the bait hive in a guava tree about 10...
