  2. Re: I think today my bees swarmed today. Now confused!

    Should I pull 2 few honey frames out and put in 2 empty frames?

    I only have foundation, no full frames drawn.

    The just freeze the honey frames for winter feed or spring startup?

    Well, the brood nest box 1 and 2 are tight. Packed with honey and brood.

    When you say pull the queen? Can you clarify?

    Re: Harvesting Uncapped Frames?

    The 2 deeps below the supers are loaded.

    Hive weight is heavy.

    Do you leave supers on for the winter if there is honey unusable?

    I want to reduce the hive to 2 deeps for overwintering.

    Black Foundation For Honey Supers

    I have 20 medium frames with black foundation.

    Can I use them in honey supers?

    I know people prefer the black in brood frames, does it matter in the honey super?

    Re: Hive top Feeder Issues

    I went into my split hive today and a bunch of bees hatched and are busy at work sucking down sugar water from the feeder.

    I see some comb being worked on.

    All that worrying!

    Re: Help Identifying Frames

    Well the hive swarmed last Monday.

    I tried to keep them home, but no luck.

    Possible new foundation and they did not have the room the bees preferred.

    Missed the swarm so I couldn’t chase them

    Re: Hive top Feeder Issues

    1:1 sugar water

    Just checked again after cleaning it.

    It’s almost like there is bee repellent in there.

    Not a soul consuming fresh sugar water.

    I borrowed the feeder from a buddy.
