  1. Re: How many bees actually investigate new home

    A swarm will issue an ever increasing number of scouts to investigate a new nest site. At some point, and I wish I could tell you exactly when but I can't, they "decide" on the the new home and all...

    Re: Wolf Creek Bees, any good???

    I bought a couple of packages from them 5 years ago. They were good bees and did very well for me. I hadn't realized they sold out. A business is only as good as the owner.

    Re: Asian Giant Hornet

    Had a run in with European hornets a few years ago. They built a nest in my house wall. I found a few dead ones on the bottom boards of hives so they were raiding. When I got stung on the hand in my...

    Honey Bees love garbage as do other insects, (yellow jackets, wasps etc..) It's a ready source of minerals and moisture.

    Re: #8 Duck Cloth Inner Cover

    I can attest to this. I have used this for two years with migratory covers and find it helps the bees to control SHB numbers.

    Re: Warre novice in need of help!

    BeeBoise,
    You will want to winter the bees in as small an area as possible and still have enough stores to get them through. Any box that is empty, pull out. I assume you are in Idaho. I do not know...

    Re: Bananas and bees

    I had a similar experience. I ate the whole banana in the apiary. A few curious bees came around to check it out but there wasn't any hostility. Perhaps smelling like alarm pheromone to us (humans)...

    Re: How to know if you have been rejected

    You may want to consider opening your entrance to a wider setting. When the days and nights are warmer the bees will start hanging out outside to help keep the nest heat down. I'd say if your nights...

  16. Re: Both Hives Queenless And No Eggs, My Plan OK?

    Fivej,

    The two queens will likely be cheaper. Either way will work but there is a risk of laying workers the longer they have to wait.

    If you go with the nuc, I'd install the queen and one...
  17. Re: Do beekeepers actually get feral bees removed from homes?

    You bring up a lot of concerns, especially the Africanized issue. Only a local beekeeper can answer that. I can say that if the hive is killed out with pesticides without removing all the comb and...

    Re: problem or no not really

    One possibility is that the colony is queenless. It's not unusual for a queenless hive to get defensive.
