    Disappointing Fall Inspection

    I've been feeding 5 strong hives for the past 4 weeks. The strongest hive of the group hasn't taken any feed. I've tried switching containers twice, but to no avail.

    Re: I'm stuck

    Thanks for the offer! I'm going to have to make a nuc for this primo queen I have. I like overwintering some nucs anyway!

    Re: Simple Harmony Farms Uncapper

    I use it. We have 4ish hives, so no need for high capacity equipment. It can be a little tricky on uneven frames, but overall I would recommend it

    Re: NYC terrace - attracting bees

    I have a better idea; why not keep a hive on your roof? Let me know if you need help, I'm on the UWS

    Harvesting honey

    I know this sounds like a dumb question..... does it matter to the bees if you remove frames of capped honey as they are made, or is there a reason to allow them to complete an entire box?

    Re: getting bees to work plastic

    Nancy, I just received my Lyson solar melter. Do you use it for cappings as well? Do you do any type of filtering or cleaning first?

    I don't have any italians. 2 Palmer hives, one VSH Carny, 1 WV Mountain queen, 1 Anarchy.

    Re: New River Honey Bees in West Virginia

    I had ordered from Dan O'Hanlon in the past. He is retiring, and recommended Jason at New River. I have had good experiences with the Mountain State Group, and would trust Jason to be a good breeder.

    New Seek Thermal camera; Whoops!

    I finally gave in and got a thermal camera. I figured it's better than peeking! But apparently it's not foolproof!

    Re: Anklebiters
