    Re: Obnoxious guard bee

    I noticed, she will not sting.

    I have a couple of ears and an eye that beg to differ.

    Re: Inducing Swarm Cells for Quality Queens?

    Those that I choose to call superceder are what I would view as a little bit hidden from the queen. On the other edge and laid in a normal patch of worker brood.

    Re: Obnoxious guard bee

    I blame it on the father. With multiple drones there are bound to be a few troublemakers. Two handed swat. When the yard gets a little testy chasers can cause a lot more trouble than necessary.

    Re: You don't know til you look

    ill the queenright hive draw bees into it from the queenless hive? almost always
  6. Re: Put undrawn honey super BETWEEN brood boxes to get drawn?

    If the box was drawn in a week it probably would have been drawn above as well. Take a little longer, I would expect. Drawn frames as starters, from another source, has close to the same effect as...
  7. Re: Put undrawn honey super BETWEEN brood boxes to get drawn?

    There is a little more inducement for them to draw frames between boxes. Some bees in particular do not like crossing into the next box, hence the usual advice to pull up drawn frames into a new box.

    Re: Inducing Swarm Cells for Quality Queens?

    I would call that a vertical split, not a swarm cell.

    What I do not get is; "I removed the swarm cells." Then describe the plans to make splits. It is like rounding third and going back to first...
  9. Re: Walkaway splitting double deeps...keep the queens? Throw on honey supers?

    "this is my opinion, may or may not be yours."
    Pretty much mine as well. A queen in a nuc is valuable, if not to you, than many others.

    A flyback split or four will get you plenty of QCs. A...
  10. Re: Walkaway splitting double deeps...keep the queens? Throw on honey supers?

    Back up and decide where you want to end up. Then make a plan.

    An extractor will un bind a honey bound hive at any time of year.

    Why are the supers off?

    Kill the old sounds like a lot of...
  11. Re: Bees Making Cross Comb on Plastic Foundation!!

    "I gave them 4 frames of capped brood." And a frame of eggs/ young open brood?

    " leaving the queen in the original location and moving the new hive 20 feet away." You will get less drifting doing...

    Re: I blame LJ for the Rose method.

    So my plan for a three day visit became a 8 day visit. Nice cell of three in the correct section. Made a 3 frame split. Found the two frames added last were stuffed with nectar not brood. Put it...

    Re: Learning Grafting

    Plenty of jelly in any drone cell. I would think from a QC is better but I am no chemist.
  14. Re: Bees Making Cross Comb on Plastic Foundation!!

    But adding a frame to the brood nest is un-natural and disturbs the brood nest. LOL
    do not try that in cold weather.
  15. Re: Quality Queen Cells with Small Nuc as Cell Starter?

    Interesting comment above.
    I can't think of a superseder cell from a cup that I've seen. Few cups that get started get torn down.

    It is possible to raise a poor queen from any method used, that I...

    Re: I blame LJ for the Rose method.

    "Dont put your heart in a box of pine!"

    We must grow them crooked in Maine. When the heart is in on one end and out on the other. You can't go wrong and you can't go right at the same time.

    Re: Ubuntu

    Apparently your ground is closer than mine.
    The hardware is fine, it's the software that gets windmilled through the money machine.

    (If it ain't broke buy a new one)

    Re: I blame LJ for the Rose method.

    I really do not blame LJ, nor the method. It is a vertical split with a little more isolation or a Snel with a little less.

    In fairness, the swarm is on me, and I have still gotten at least (2)...

    Re: I blame LJ for the Rose method.

    Best to work with your successes before experimenting.

    I am working with a 1 hive sample, hate to extend observations too far.

    I blame LJ for the Rose method.

    Well for setting me off on it anyway. It seems there is not "a " Rose method. I have played with it a bit am wondering what others are seeing. I am using a stand alone hive as a victim which has it's...
  23. Re: Help, Do I have Laying Workers? What's going on?

    Thinking just a swarm. Photo 1 &2 have something in the bottom of cells, but too fuzzy. Pollen or larva? If larva are they healthy looking? Not seeing LW eggs.
  24. Re: Why do drones congregate in certain hives in an Apiary?

    Virgin queen will attract a lot of drones.

    Will follow field bees in as well. Play follow the leader.
  25. Re: Split- Removed queen to resource hive, were they supercedure cells?

    Only when you learn to ignor the fact you should be worried!
