    Re: OAV or Apivar?

    I have been using Apivar during the last 4 years and have had a mortality by mites always below 1%. I have come to two major conclusions: is very good if applied at the right time (in my area in...
  8. Re: German Black bees in the Southeastern US actually Apis mellifera iberiensis?

    >>What confuses me is that they name some groups of this A group with capital C, like CT4, CT5 etc.

    Hello Juhani. If I read well the article the use of capital C does not refer to lineage C...

    Open the honey dome with a fork to expose the honey. The bees will tend to transfer this honey to the upper box.

    Sticky: Re: Want Swarm Prevention? Try the OSBN Method

    At this point, with already present larvae inside the queens cups 99% of my hives are in full swarming mode or in a queen replacement process. You have to discern which one it is.

    Yes, you can use it, no problem.
  19. Re: Growing upů at the entrance of spring in Portugal

    Not bad Matthew. :)
    I have not yet used OSBN. In these last two years I have managed to keep a good number of drawn comb for the next season. In the future I will use it as a strategy to prevent or...

    Sticky: Re: Want Swarm Prevention? Try the OSBN Method

    On my hives, by rule, it is a sign of a strong one that may enter into swarming mode in the near future (about two weeks later). But some do not go into swarming mode. It is not an unmistakable sign...

    Thank you Matthew for the explanation.
    What you say confirms my suspicion that eggs and worker larvae at the edges of the recently cut comb can become a stimulus for bees to make queen cells. In my...

    Thank you mtnmyke.
