    Re: Well that was fast.

    The queen was not my favorite, she was steadfast but never really overly productive compared to my other queens. I caught the queen in the hive, and moved her and 2 frames of brood to the nuc. ...

    Well that was fast.

    Roughly 3 weeks ago, I made a split into a 5 frame nuc. 2 frames with brood, 1 with honey, and two drawn frames. I dropped a queen in there that was from last year. I did not open them up again...
  4. Combined the Hive Via Newspaper Solution?

    Have a 2019 package that the queen is only laying drones. She was tiny when she arrived so maybe she wasnt bred well. I have another hive that overwintered and the queen is just slow. Last year she...

    Re: Single deep

    I overwintered two 8 frame hives in North Alabama. One was a double deep with a medium honey super. The other was a single deep. The Double deep died out with the last winter cold snap, the single...

    Re: Dividing a 3# package between two nucs

    Crap that Barnyard bees video makes it look so easy. I did notice he has a ton of hives so he could pull resources pretty easily if need be. Hmmm.

    I think I will install and split after the flow. That seems like the better idea.

    The package was ordered as a gift, by a family member for me.

    Thanks!

    Dividing a 3# package between two nucs

    I have a three pound package coming the first week of April. I can get an extra local queen. How bad of an idea would it be to split the package between two 5 frame nucs? I have enough drawn comb...

    Size reduction

    I have a hive that still has two deeps and a medium. No doubt they can fit in one deep. I was hoping they would explode and fill out at least the second deep but our weather has been wet and cool. ...

    Locally here you can get 4 frame nucs with frame swap for around 135.00. Or last year you could.

    Re: Where did my bee's go?

    The one sure thing I have learned from Beesource, is that Mites are the cause for nearly everything.

    I have never heard of using mineral oil for mites. Very creative.

    Re: queen in the mail

    I bet she will be fine. I got a package in on Monday that was shipped Friday and the queen was just fine. Of course she had 3 pounds of bees to keep her warm. I will stay positive and just have to...

    My Queen lives!

    Did a complete tear down last weekend and did not see the Queen in one of my hives. No capped brood, and I didn’t see any eggs. Honestly my eyes have a hard time seeing eggs. I was pretty worried...

    Inspection & OAV same day?

    Temps will be low to mid 50’s today. Wanted to look for the queen and thought about doing an OAV treatment today as well. Or should I do one today and one tomorrow?
  16. Re: 1st Full Spring Inspection. Not Great.

    After the Apivar I did a mite count. Got 2 mites in the alcohol wash. I also hit each hive with a single OAV treatment in January on a +50f day. I did not do a mite wash after the OAV.

    I use a product called Starsan. It is a sanitizer and easy. I fill up a bucket with water add Starsan and do a dunk with the jar/bottle and then let it drain. Same with the lids.

    Re: Hive color question

    My hives are cypress, I just coat them with MinWax Spar Polyurethane. I like the natural look and the bees seem to be fine with it.
