    Re: 2018 OAV treatment on Observation hive

    For the large hives I don't measure, I fill the cap with as much as it can hold and leave it in place until I see a satisfactory vapor escapement from the entrances and cracks. That allows for...

    Re: 2018 OAV treatment on Observation hive

    I agree, they seem to suck at grooming and don't see the dead mite as a threat. I'd like to snatch one up (thorax & attached mite) and put it under my microscope. I'd like to see why it's still...

    Re: No Brood Leaving the Winter Shed This Year

    WOW!

    I saw the video of your bees going to town on the dry Ultra bee. No lacking for appetite, that's for sure.

    My guess is your broodless state may be related to day length.

    With all my whining about the cold weather and concern for my bees, I FINALLY got a decent day today to pop a few lids and try to get some feed into them. (Still in the 40's, but no biting wind and...

  20. Re: Is there a trick to introducing a virgin queen
