    Re: Big, inconvenient swarm....

    I wondered that as well, but once they were all in the box and back in my apiary, i figure let them fight it out. They are already loading up frames.

    Big, inconvenient swarm....

    This is the largest of the three swarms I boxed over the weekend. This one took me three tries in two days! Finally I made a scoop from a gallon size syrup bottle I had laying around and scooped...

    Re: Aggressive Bees Attacking!

    Could have aggressive genetics. Way up here in Idaho I do not see the same bees as you do in Texas. I'll leave advice to those who know better...

    Re: Aggressive Bees Attacking!

    Re: Definition of "Artificial Swarm" ??

    This is how I do it, except i just shake a few frames of bees into the box with the queen. And foragers will go back to the mother colony, and the nurses will soon become foragers. I feed sugar water...

    Re: splitting hive myth

    Agreed. With all the fruit trees blooming here right now, the foragers don't have time to rob the little neighbor next to them.

    Re: New member question on tools

    One more thing, when you spin the frames, spin one side about half way, then flip the frames to extract from the other side, then flip them back to finish the first side. The reason for that is to...

    Re: New member question on tools

    That looks exactly like my extractor, and mine is older than me, and I am 52. It was my dad's. I still use it.

    Just guessing, but I believe all the parts are there from what I see in the picture....

    Re: When was the first time you saw a swarm?

    I understood because my dad was a beekeeper and I grew up around bees.

    Re: When was the first time you saw a swarm?

    I was about 10 years old. Back then I spent my summer days at the Umatilla river. One day we heard a loud buzz and watched a large swarm flying and swirling around just over our heads and flew away. ...

    Re: Robbing Activity after Split?

    Agreed. I call them "displaced entrances" (probably picked up that name from elsewhere). I take #8 hardware cloth, bend it into a "Z" and put it over the entrance. Have seen weeks after removal home...

    Re: Queen excluder on bottom?

    I saw a little box you can put on the entrance that has a QE, and if you are able, you check it every few days to see if the bees are bunched up in the box, which means they are swarming or the...

    Re: Vermont Bill Before Legislature

    Does this include hobbyist beekeepers? I live in a community in the county, maybe 50 properties of 2 or so acres each. At least 10 of us have a few hives, and more have some of the commercial bees on...

    On an unrelated note: you being from the NE area, you rooting for the Pats today? I just hate the Rams (Seahawks fan since '78), so go Pats!
