    When the project was first posted, the project stated that the money was going towards improving the app. Then its updated to show its going to A individual. Kickstarter projects don't typically...
  2. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    On a related topic, I dont remember seeing this before. Did anyone notice that kickstarter is updated to say the proceeds are going towards "a data analytics professional". Interesting.

  3. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    I read the discussion on forums that SP linked here. Hilarious. Any issues raised by some Peter was blamed on "production team". No data there either. Why do I have to email etc ? OP is the one...

    Re: Queen Introduction & Conflicting Advice

    Bees are living, complex (relatively) and social creatures. There are too many variables, hence the variance in experience and advice. You can flip a coin between direct release, queen with...
  5. Re: Commiserate: Worst Advice You've Ever Followed, & Subsequent Disastrous Results

    I would treat for mites right away unless other pressing matters arise. I also advise to keep an eye our for any colonies close my. In my case, I lost two more colonies that robbed the one where...
  7. Re: Video of fighting bees, dead and dying bees

    OP, I have had three hives / nucs perish with similar symptoms couple of years back, but in September. If I remember correctly, I described it as "bees on frying pan". I had thousands of dead bees...
  8. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

  9. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    Oh they will pipe without being on comb, when banked or otherwise nearby other queens. My theory is either they can smell or one randomly starts screaming and others follow through.

    Re: The perils of giving advice

    Every advice I got here on these forums helped one way or the other, even it did not help AT THAT TIME. I often do something stupid, then remember advice of someone here or idea that was floated.

    I see you have been around since 2016 on these forums. Then you should know that there are no "enemies" or "agendas". Not atleast among the joe-blow-hobby-beekeeper like me. This has everything to do...

  18. Re: Smartphone app that listens to bees to tell you what health issues they have

    Timing was perfect. I have had two LW this year. One is a small swarm and the other hive failed to requeen. Everyday, I would walk by the hives and ask my bees how are they doing. Everyone said they...

    Re: Girls won't draw comb

    Depends on your goals, but I have had great success with Lauri method of "refreshing spring hives"....

    As soon as I did the method, bees get into high gear and build comb like no tomorrow....
  22. Re: Queenless colony; bees don't seem to want a queen

    I would give the hive a frame with queen cell (gentle with transfer) AND a frame with eggs. I would also notch few cells like I would for OTS (On the sport) queen making. Mark the frames so there is...

    Re: Laying Worker(s) 3 weeks after install?

    I have not looked for literature to confirm but my theory is LW progression depends on multiple things including, brood, queen cells etc.

    Re: Place Queen In Cage Dies In 10 Mins

    Did she really die or faint ? There are reports of queens fainting (especially when marking) and coming back to life. I had a queen die, but right after marking her. She fainted, I set back into the...
