    Re: Brazil: 500 million bees die in 3 months.

    Psm1212,
    I understand what you are saying. A few days ago someone asked me how many bees I have. I said, "about a million." They looked at me as though I was lying. Then I laughed, clapped them on...

    Don't worry, the Chinese will take up the slack, somehow.

  4. Re: Crowdfunded Smart hive for helping bees, beekeepers, and bee researchers

    "This represents the canyon that separates those who care about bees from those who take care of bees."

    I'm not quite sure what the difference is between the phrases, "care about bees" and "take...
  5. Re: Not sure how to manage these hives, photos included

    That looks to me like what happens when shallow frames are used in a medium box.

  6. Re: OA vaporization is probably safe with honey supers - here's my calculations

    I read somewhere that the decision to not allow treating with honey supers on was to avoid the delays testing would incur.
    The liability issues mentioned above probably weighed it down also.

    Re: How Much honey?

    Well, Dan, I guess I can blame my upbringing. When I was a kid, we were not allowed to make demands of adults or talk back. We also joked around a lot and teased one another. Shame on the ones who...

    Re: No Beetles

    I'm still not finding many beetles. I made some very weak splits this Spring to keep for insurance, they don't have beetles either. Usually, I find a few beetles under the inner cover of all hives,...
  9. Re: According To This, I've Done Everything Wrong, & My Plans Are Not Good

    I am wondering if you checked the ejected pupae for mites. The reason I ask is because I often find Drone pupae on the landing boards of my hives the next day after inspections. My bees build Drone...

    Re: 1: 1 sugar syrup recipe?

    I have a pitcher that is marked off in quarts. If I want 2:1, I pour water up to the 1, then pour sugar in until the water rises to the 3. Simple.

    I've just never understood how breeding for varroa resistance could succeed if neither parent had been affected by them.

    Re: Drone cells in the Treatment Free world

    I have always wondered how many Varroa affected Drones make it to the DCAs and mate? If they don't, then they wouldn't be passing on the ability to survive mites, or would they?

    Re: What causes burr comb

    Sounds like the smaller nuc is set to catch up. If your Queen doesn't have anywhere to lay, I would give her an empty frame of drawn comb if you can. It doesn't even need to be fully drawn. She...

    Re: What causes burr comb

    I would take a frame of capped brood and a frame of drawn comb out of the strong hive and put it in the week hive. Just make sure you don't get the queen.

    I think it is because our ground around here has been saturated since September/October. That's the only thing different that...

  25. Re: OK to put harvested comb back into a hive (for brood or honey, etc)?

    If you are harvesting a few frames at a time there is a lot of cleanup involved with extraction.
    You could go with thin surplus foundation or none at all in your honey supers. That way you could cut...
