    Re: Got a swarm today

    I would put as much drawn comb as you can find in a single deep, put the worst looking to the outside positions. Use another deep with no frames on top as a shaker box so that the bees end up in the...

    Re: What to do with mold/mildew in hive?

    Aren't bees amazing? When presented with a problem, they work together to fix it. A little teamwork and it is as if the problem never existed. Glad that things worked out .
  3. Re: new hive, do I have to check the lower frame

    It could happen in the cut and paste process, especially if there are multiple quotes. I fixed the name to show the OP.

    Re: What to do with mold/mildew in hive?

    Agree with the others. Mold is not a big issue. But, if there was pollen on the frames that got funky, I would wash it out. I soaked some really nasty super frames in an ice chest full of water and...

    Re: Bee Traffic in a Dearth?

    To the best of my knowledge, the bees are pretty good about energy conservation. If there is truly nothing out there, they will just hang out at the hive. But they will forage an increasingly larger...

    Re: Why No Forum On Harvesting Honey?

    Maybe plannergwp does not realize that I actually did modify the description. I thought it was a good idea. That does not mean your are not crazy though. We keep stinging insects, lots of them, for...

    Re: Harvest with Apivar?

    I would not put all that honey into a weak hive as there are probably not enough bees to defend it. Consider marking the frames and then moving only 2 or 3 to the weak hive and distribute the rest as...

    Re: Durability of plywood in Layen's hives

    River rat, I use regular 3/8" B/C plywood for inner covers and telescoping tops. The tops get a coat of primer and two coats of a high quality latex exterior grade paint. So far I have not had any...

    Re: Apiguard treatment on 2 deeps

    Can't help with the Apiguard question, but you should treat your apiary as a unit. If one hive tests high, all hives should be treated. I was just having this same conversation with our state...

    Re: New to Bee Keeping in Virginia

    Welcome to Beesource Craig. The Sunkist line was a hoax. Sorry to be the bearer of the bad news if you had your heart set on building your apairy around them.

    Re: Different color cells?

    Buzz, were the frames exclusively undrawn foundation when you put them in above the excluder? There is no doubt that the most likely explanation is that the pattern is due to the darker cells having...

    Re: Delayed sting response?

    Rob, I have been bitten by spiders several times, black widows I think as they are prevalent in the apiary. Usually the first indication is the intense itching, often followed by swelling that...
  17. Re: So, what did you scrounge today? Braggin encouraged

    It's a no-brainer Greg. Tell the wife that the two of you are going on a short road trip. Get the wood, and treat her to a nice dinner after you pick it up.

    Re: Over-wintering in Nucs

    Do not discount Kamon's age. He has been a beekeeper since he was a teenager and knows a lot more than many beekeepers twice his age. I hope to get him to come to Virginia and give a presentation for...
  21. Re: Screened Bottom Board - Open or Closed in Summer Heat?

    In Richmond, I open my screened bottoms during the summer. The inserts are in right now as I am doing my fall OAV treatments. Very little bearding now that temps are back into the low 90's.

    Re: Bubbly honey

    Greg, last year some of my honey developed pressure under the lid. No bubbles so to speak, but the honey had a slight tang to it. I thought it was pretty good and so did the folks that bought or were...
  23. Re: how long will cutout last without food - I don't want to kill any more

    The bees need ventilation more than they water or honey dumped on them. They are not going to starve over a day or two if you do not feed them, but you really should get them out of the bucket and...
  24. Re: Late August mite treatment options Upstate NY

    If you are not going to be harvesting fall honey, I would use Apivar strips. Easy to get than setting up for OAV.

    Probably too late for spits in NY state and you definitely not want to induce a...

    Re: Wintering in 1/2 in nuc boxes

    Harry, since Apopka rarely sees temps dip below 32 degrees, 1/2" would be fine. I assume you are making something like the D Coates nucs to grow your apiary inexpensively.
