    Re: Queen but no eggs

    I moved the queen to a nuc as I mentioned but when I put the lid on she must have walked up on top of a frame and the lid mashed her so that nuc went laying worker and bottomed up. Figures of all...
  2. Re: Plastic Drone Combs - are they worthwhile?

    I usually just stick a couple foundationless frames in and let them draw those out and fill with drone and then once they are full of larvae i just put them up in a higher box so that when they...

    Re: Well that was fast.

    Sounds like the queen may be dead unless you saw her or eggs in your most recent inspection. I wouldn't think a new nuc would prepare to swarm that fast unless the queen didn't have enough room to...

    Laying Workers

    My best hive from early spring went laying worker on me after the queen died or swarmed. I just noticed it yesterday and there were probably 4 frames with eggs and larvae in some cells so I took...

    Re: Moving Hive

    Thanks, I actually did mark these dates on my calendar and plan to do just that. I guess they could have swarmed and I wouldn't have noticed. Sucks if I missed 2 different swarms within a couple...

    Re: Moving Hive

    Last year I had 2 hives and split those into 4 hives. I purchased queens that they killed even after letting them release the candy plug after a few days. Since they did this, I gave them frames of...

    Re: Moving Hive

    That wasn't the plan. My hives superceded for whatever reason so I took some of the cells from two hives and made splits and am letting them raise queens to keep from buying 5 queens. I did the...

    Moving Hive

    I currently have 6 hives but only one has a laying queen due to 2 being splits off of hives that either swarmed or had their queens killed by either me or the bees. The splits are in different...

    Re: Queen but no eggs

    Thanks for the input. I've tried doing that and giving them eggs and larvae and nothing got her going. I moved her into a small nuc and stuck a recently capped queen cell in the old hive to see...

    Re: Queen but no eggs

    Oh I see, I think it is actually just a glare on the nectar. I had some other images from other angles and that seems to be the case.

    Re: Queen but no eggs

    Sorry, that was from the couple frames of brood that I put in the hive a week or so ago. I was trying to get them to raise a new queen but they apparently saw no issues with the current queen which...

    Re: Queen but no eggs

    The queen is still in there and still a good number of bees relatively speaking so I took her out and marked her and put her in a small nuc to see if they get her going by chance. She looked fuller...

    Re: Queen but no eggs

    Thanks, the population did drop but adding the frames with nurse bees has helped. There are actually more left than I thought there would be. The whole thing is weird to me but I haven't been at it...

    I wondered if that would work. Is that just to get rid of the old queen if shes in there and I'm just missing her or what exactly does that do? Haven't heard of anyone local with queens yet but I...

    So I've given them sugar water and theyve barely taken any over the last few weeks. Still no eggs. I couldn't find the original queen so they may have killed or kicked her out but I added two...

    Re: Treated and Untreated in same yard

    Thanks, I'll probably try to get some MAQs in. I'll see how many varroa dropped from the OAV over the next few days. I was surprised to see any since I treated last winter after no brood and they...

    I live about 30 minutes away but we both actually get our bees from the same guy who is treatment free but doesn't recommend we continue treatment free without good experience in it. Therefore, I've...

    Thanks for the info. I made sure she was ok with my treatments since I knew she was untreated but according to her it is only because she never has had to before although I would think that probably...

    Treated and Untreated in same yard

    I recently had a lady allow me to place a hive in her yard where she has kept bees in the past but they all recently died and she says she doesn't treat and is getting 2 nucs soon. Are there any...

    Re: Queen excluder on bottom?

    Hadn't thought about the drones or that the queen would thin down before swarming. Good info to know! Thanks all.
