    Re: Homemade bee repellant

    I tried this tonight and it didn't work for me.
    My bees looked at me like there were trying to say is that all you got lol :(
  2. Has anyone heard of adding foos coloring/dye to sugar water?

    Has anyone heard of adding food coloring/dye to sugar water?
    I recently heard/read it somewhere that people have used dye in sugar water to tell where in the frames the bee's are storing it.
    Does...
  3. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    I hope so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
    I am sure I spotted the new queen and wanted so badly to mark her but I figured it was best to leave her and let her lay some more eggs for a while.
    I will...
  4. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    Just an update.
    I checked both hives today and found eggs in both of them. :banana:
    The supersedure cells on the one hive hatched I'm guessing and I didn't see the queen we marked last week so I...
  5. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    I heard back from the seller.
    Seller ->He told me a few things I already knew then said he had no frames with eggs or spare queens to sell ???? :scratch:

    I wonder how a seller can not have frames...
  6. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

  7. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    I guess that's the other side of the story, but still, it would be nice if he offered help to fix the screw-up.
    I have been nothing but nice to the seller, I have not demanded anything but I will it...
  8. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    One other thing is how will I know if there are enough drones in my area for the new queen to mate?
  9. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    At this point, I would not recommend the guy even though the bees are really healthy. He still has not responded :(
    I think he just flipped someone else's nucs and just told me what he was told by...
  10. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    4814148143I had a more experienced association member come over Saturday and we went through both hives.
    There were a total of 4 Supersedure cells on the one hive. One was capped.
    The others were...
  11. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    My plan is going to be to resist going into the hive till this weekend.

    I'll give the bees and myself a few days to recover from the experience.:)

    I will have all day Saturday to go through the...
  12. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    Good morning, my plan is to go back into the hive this coming weekend and try and look for eggs.
    I was going to do it tonight but its not looking very nice out. Predicted Overcast with possible...
  13. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    Ok let me say this first :
    When I picked up the Nucs the seller told me to leave them alone for 4 days then I could transfer them to the new hive bodies.
    He said after transferring them leave them...
  14. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    Hi All,

    As soon as I got home from work and got everything organized I transferred both Nucs into 10 frame hives today.
    The first Nuc I opened were very calm with some smoke on them.
    I...
  15. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    Hi Michael,
    I got to keep the nucs they aren't the best, it actually looks like they're all pieced together.
    I can take a photo of them after I transfer the bees to my hives.

    I decided to do the...
  16. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    OK thank you.

    The thing that baffles me the most is why would the seller tell me to wait for 4 days to transfer the bees to their new hive?
    From all the videos and what I have learned you should...
  17. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    ok thank you.
  18. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    The NUCS are sitting on the stand, I removed the hives and will put them back in place where the NUCS are currently when I transfer the frames.
    The bees were out yesterday orienting and searching...
  19. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    You may be right about the temps.
    Maybe it was the cool nights that he was worried about. It dropped to 41 degrees last night I think.
    It is supposed to stay over 50 degrees at night from now on.
  20. It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    Hi all,

    It's official !
    I finally have my first 2 NUCS !
    I was told not to transfer them for a few days to my 10 frame deeps.
    I dont get why not and that makes me wonder.
    The lids are screwed...
  21. Nuc Supplier is pushing pickup date yet again.

    Hi everyone,

    So I am a noobie and found several local people selling NUCS.
    The one person nearest to me keeps pushing the date back and keeps saying the bees aren't ready yet.
    They aren't strong...

    Ok Thank you Nancy.

    Some are double coated.
  23. Re: Division Board or not as spacer to reduce 10 frame to 8 frame hive?

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for your response.
    I plan on running two 10 frame deeps for Brood boxes and then 10 frame mediums for honey supers.
    I did build a couple 5 frame NUCS last year but I was...
  24. Division Board or not as spacer to reduce 10 frame to 8 frame hive?

    Has anyone reduced their 10 frame hive down to a 8 frame hive to help a NUC installation?
    Is it really needed?
    Or is it better to just give them 5 new frames and let them have at it?
    Noobie here...

    Re: Can you partition a deep hive box?

    I think using a division board is the route I may take.
    I guess you could use a follower board as well.
    Thanks everyone.
