    Re: Bee club blues

    When I read the subject I thought blues from not having meetings because of stay at home orders. I have those blues. The club I'm in doesn't have the problems you're going through.

    Caught my first swarm

    Unfortunately it came from one of my hives. My wife told me there were bees in a tree. I shook them into a new hive I had just painted. It rained cats and dogs last night. Will this help them to...

    Re: 2020 How was your winter?

    This is my first winter. On Sunday both hives were flying. Nobody was bringing in pollen. I made pretty much every mistake there is. I rolled one of my queens about a month in. The emergency...

    Yesterday actually. This is my first year with bees. Two packages on Good Friday. One of them I killed the queen when I was centering the frames in the brood box. Bees roared and I didn't know...
  11. How long to freeze frames from a laying worker hive?

    Re: When to remove the queen cage

    I'm inclined to wait ten days. What happens if the queen isn't released at ten days? I had two packages. One had candy under the cork and one didn't. I put a whole mini marshmallow in it. It...

    When to remove the queen cage

    I installed two packages on Saturday. I've read to check that the queen has been released in three days and I've also read to keep out of the hive for ten days. Which is correct?

    That's a big 10-4 on that. All the videos and reading don't really compare to doing it. The feeling of bees walking on my hand when I brushed them off the queen cage to see that she was ok was...
