    Well it means they took their "stuff" and split!

    verb

  2. It pays to be 'out' to your friends, or at least neighbors whose names you don't know

    Just now, my wife yells up the steps and says there's a present for me. Apparently, my neighbor, whose name I haven't a clue (we're new here and only lived here 6-1/2 years so we don't know both our...

    Re: Anyone use Masonite internally in hive?

    I just saw a bunch of DIY frame feeders, they were basically wood all around and I think the translation said to coat it with wax to make it waterproof. Something like this:...

    Anyone use Masonite internally in hive?

    Topic says it all. I know masonite is not good exposed to the elements, but has anyone used it for internal things within the hive? Perhaps for a separator or follower?

    Re: Use dogs to find bee trees.

    Shouldn't be hard. Dogs have a good smeller. Bet they could be trained to indicate on nasonov or qmh or whatever. An active hive should be full of such smells and dogs can smell for some distance....

    A little late for that :)

    I get the screw thing, seems to work great from what I could see. I was thinking more of the material as a medium in general. Maybe to even make full size equipment. The idea that it could be...
  17. Re: Quality Queen Cells with Small Nuc as Cell Starter?

    So, if I do that, then I should now have a queenless hive still, because the queen was removed to a nuc in the first place. Now, I have removed their supercedure and swarm cells if they had made...
  18. Re: Quality Queen Cells with Small Nuc as Cell Starter?

    So if I see swarm or supercedure on the day of the split, then I am just finished. Move the queen and not a frame with those cells on it to a small nuc, and close this one up and just do the split as...
  19. Re: Quality Queen Cells with Small Nuc as Cell Starter?

    Okay, so if any queen cells were started with larva > 2 days then they would be capped by the 4th day after queenlessness. I guess this also implies that I tear down anything I find that I see on the...

    Sounds encouraging. Do you think even for starting out? As in first split? So say you build up a strong hive, then instead of doing a walkaway split, just create a cell builder and graft? Would that...

  22. Re: Quality Queen Cells with Small Nuc as Cell Starter?

    Personally, I wouldn't expect to find much in a feral swarm here. I am of the opinion that the swarms around here are merely those leaving other keepers who didn't realize that spring starts in...

    Re: Irritating Vegans

    I am not 100% sure that is accurate. I think the time frame you are referring to is relative to "cultivated" grains and legumes. I would suppose in the hunter/gatherer aspect of life there had to be...
