    Sticky: Re: a little scientific involvement with TF bees.

    No, so far I have left it queenless and given it a ripe cell later in summer. From that point it takes couple weeks for the new queen to lay, and then the inseminations are mainly done.

    I usually just put in one and have no idea how many rounds they make in a queen right colony, but when moved to queen less nursing nuc, the advantage is that inseminations are much easier when...

    Sticky: Re: a little scientific involvement with TF bees.

    Drone nursing colonies are easy to make, drone frames, bees, capped brood and pollen. Just let the strong ones make their drone frames and move them to a drone nursing colony.

    Sticky: Re: EFB options

    Looks familiar. :D Sometimes even holes in cells, but no roping.

    I had several hives with brood disease symptoms in spring. Now nothing. This is very typical for my EFB (or whatever).

    I...

  7. Re: Holding virgins for insemination - Bank, nuc or incubator??

    The mating flight is prevented with an excluder in the entrance. I mark with numbers the nucs and cages. This way the queens, when giving them the first round of CO2 in a bunch of 10, I get them...

    Insemination of the second round queens is in the work list.

    As planned I have taken bees to several yards outside our home.

    Re: Nicot queen releases

    Take the whole grid away. The larvae need to be fed properly, plus it is easier to fit between frames.
  12. Re: Caspian, or something, treatment free bees from Canada

    Some original Russians (from prof Rinderer to Josef Koller to me) had queens just like that.

    Colour of the queen tells very little, uniformity of worker/drone coloring much more.
  13. Re: Caspian, or something, treatment free bees from Canada

    They look very much my bees, although my queens usually have stripes, but not all of them.
  14. Re: Caspian, or something, treatment free bees from Canada

    Ok, I read that.

    There was a sentence: "They may or may not live better with varroa. Hossein makes no such claims."

  16. Re: Treatment-Free Beekeeping in Norway scientifically studied

    No.
    However beekeepers in Central Europe move a lot of bees, here and there to different crops. In the Nordic countries that is much less common, in fact in Finland there are very few (I know one)...

    Re: Different Approach, Same Results

    Professional skills of a beekeeper can be measured in long term average working hours per hive (in relation to honeycrop).

    Re: Drone cells in the Treatment Free world

    Drones are haploid and therefore all weaknesses show in their phenotype. Mite pressure affects drones in many ways: some donīt hatch, some are not able to fly, some have few sperm, some have other...
