    Re: Thymol effects on queen rearing?

    Great info - thank you! Our temps are in the mid 90s right now, so it is definitely hot (though probably a lot dryer than your climate). What do you prefer to use if you have to treat during hot...

    Thymol effects on queen rearing?

    Hi all,
    I have heard some things about effects of thymol on the queen, such as making her stop laying for a few days. I'm curious if there are any concerns using it on a split that is raising their...

    Sticky: Re: Shrinking population - what do I do?

    Thank you all for the responses and insight!

    Just an update - I got the tests yesterday, and unfortunately they came up positive for EFB. Trying to do the tests was difficult because there was...

    Sticky: Re: Shrinking population - what do I do?

    Thank you so much! I saw that there was a vet listed on the CBSA website who is also member of the Mile Hive Denver club (which is the one I go to). My test kit didn't end up coming in the mail...

    Sticky: Re: Shrinking population - what do I do?

    I actually can't find ANYthing about state inspectors or reportable diseases for Colorado, so I don't think we have them. Most of the Denver-area suppliers import their nucs/packages from the south...

    Sticky: Re: Shrinking population - what do I do?

    We were too excited & nervous when we first got the nuc to remember to get pics of the individual frames - but we did take videos we took of install and based on those, it looks like there were bees...

    Sticky: Re: Shrinking population - what do I do?

    Yes, I'm very worried about the winter for this tiny little group of bees, even if it doesn't turn out to be EFB.

    I understand, that does make sense. If it is positive, I suppose the best thing to...

    Sticky: Re: Shrinking population - what do I do?

    Good point - I certainly don't blame the nuc seller if this does turn out to be diseased! Understand it could come from anywhere. But I probably will get my next bees a little closer to home!:D

    Sticky: Re: Shrinking population - what do I do?

    Thanks for updating my location and the warm welcome!

    The experienced beeks in my club think it's unlikely that that it's EFB, but I ordered a couple test kits from our local store anyway and...

    Sticky: Re: Shrinking population - what do I do?

    Oh nooo... Thank you all! I didn't even think about that - was focusing solely on potential queen issues. I will check out the EFB threads. It doesn't have a bad smell at all, but looking at pics I...

    Sticky: Re: Shrinking population - what do I do?

    I realized I had some better pics of the frames zoomed in - in the attached you can see that I definitely have different stages of larva and eggs. I have circled some questionable ones though - the...

    Sticky: Shrinking population - what do I do?

    Hi everyone!
    I am a first year beekeeper in the Denver, CO area, and am hoping someone may be able to give me some advice.

    I picked up and installed my nuc back on June 1st, so it's been almost 6...
