  1. Re: Will bees pollinate fruits an vegetables inside a.....

    Very briefly, this is how smell training works:
    - you feed them with syrup stimulant which smells like the flowers that need pollination (inside the enclosure, in your case); not much, but...
  2. Re: Will bees pollinate fruits an vegetables inside a.....

    Sure.
    Your apiary maybe a very desirable destination - for some bees.

    We need to start putting some numbers here.
    Right next to the hives == virtually 3-4 yards or closer.
    In and around the...

  4. Re: Will bees pollinate fruits an vegetables inside a.....

    Well, train them.
    Bees are trainable.
    There are methods of bee training to somewhat less desired pastures (for pollination).
    Pretty sure you can train them to pass through the hardware.

    Heck, my own kid now wants ME to buy HIM a "flamingo hoodie" for $44.95 because this is how he want to supports his favorite you-tuber (them you-tubers sell some cool hoodies, you know).

    I don't know, Russ, why there is a perception of top bars being "bee friendly".
    They are not anymore bee friendly than full frames.
    Either will direct the bees to build strictly parallel combs...

    Re: Two untreated hives in my bee yard

    This a perfect case of needing and reading that stupid simple, one-page general "TF to-do list" that even a child can understand.

    Rust is not iron.
    Rust is Fe2O3, primarily. Some FeO.
    So you know.

  9. Re: Will bees pollinate fruits an vegetables inside a.....

    This is different from - (right in front of the hives).
    Which is what I stated.

    My raspberry patch is 3-4 yards north-east from the row of the hives - this is directly in front of the hives.

    I would verify this by actually observing the traffic and the bees.

  17. Re: Will bees pollinate fruits an vegetables inside a.....

    Your honey bees will not forage under their noses, regardless.
    They don't forage in a blind-spot (immediate vicinity of the hive).
    Be it covered or uncovered - does not matter.

    You can not say the same about a dump called - Community Apiary.
    We tried to do one - "chem free".

    40 litre volume has more flexibility built-in, so that you can run it as compressed 5-6 frames if desired OR expand to the max if needed.
