    Re: Mann Lake Alert

    As I mentioned in a separate post, check out PerfectBee.com. They are a much smaller company than Mann Lake but I have been buying from them for a couple of years and they have been transparent and...

    Re: perfectbee.com

    A bit late to the party, but I agree with the comments here. I've been using PerfectBee.com for a couple of years and they have been excellent. I originally signed up for their online beekeeping...

    PerfectBee article cell size question

    I am participating in the PerfectBee Through-The-Winter Beekeeping course (which is awesome, by the way). I am confused about something they bring up in relation to the use of foundation.

  4. Removing frames with comb attaching frames to box

    I am not sure why I haven't see this before (I became a beekeeper just last year) but I am having problems with my bees creating comb between the outermost frames and the box (8 frame Langstroth)....

    Re: What to do with my queenless nuc

    Unfortunately, my two new nucs got delayed by a week. I am actually pretty amazed that a great many of my bees (still 4-5 frames) from 8 weeks ago are still around. It will be interesting to see if...

    Re: What to do with my queenless nuc

    Oh, I am not overthinking. I'm just learning. I have already decided to do this, but just want to understand it a little better.

    Re: What to do with my queenless nuc

    Thank you, ruthiesbees. It seems that the underlying assumption is that the newspaper creates a temporary barrier (just buys the two colonies some time to get used to each other) and that, once the...

    Re: What to do with my queenless nuc

    Apparently I am a bit slow! There's one aspect of this that confused me. If I do this and place, for example, the new nuc in a box on top of the newspaper - how do they leave the hive? Is the...

    Re: What to do with my queenless nuc

    Thank you, Alex. What would you do with the "old" bees? Are you suggesting that they go into the new nucs as well? If so, would there be any potential issues between the old bees and the queen in the...

    Re: What to do with my queenless nuc

    Thanks to everyone for the responses. The point about eggs being difficult to detected is a very valid one. Last year I was generally able to spot them OK, but obviously capped brood and larvae are...
  11. Re: BeeThinking going out of business

    Can I ask what a "framed top bar" is? Is this basically a full frame (with foundation) that will go into a Top Bar (if so, it could be "foundationed top bar", I guess :)). EDIT: Sorry - was rushing...
  12. Re: BeeThinking going out of business

    It would take well under 5 mins to change their site that alerted their visitors to the situation. As far as I am aware, they have only announced this on a very locally-focused Facebook group...

    What to do with my queenless nuc

    I have a strange situation with a nuc. I'm not 100% sure what is happening but, more importantly, also not sure what to do next. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. I am a beekeeper who...
  14. Re: BeeThinking on Shark Tank tonight at 9 PM ET

    No, they were on Shark Tank two years ago. Even though the sharks declined, they were featured a year or so later in the follow up program, since Daymond John had an interest and installed a...
  15. Re: BeeThinking on Shark Tank tonight at 9 PM ET

    It's frustrating to me that Bee Thinking, which has pretty much ceased to do business and had a big closing down sale over the weekend at their store in Portland, continues to operate their web site,...
  16. Re: BeeThinking on Shark Tank tonight at 9 PM ET

    That's unfortunate. I have previously ordered Bee Thinking equipment through PerfectBee. They are a Bee Thinking dealer, I guess (I go to PerfectBee their since I learned about them first and their...

    Why no bees at the syrup

    I am just entering my second year of beekeeping and trying a few new things. One is using a hive top feeder like this one from PerfectBee:...
  19. Can a robbing screen act as an entrance reducer

    I am interested in getting a robbing screen like this one from PerfectBee: https://store.perfectbee.com/collections/hives/products/moving-and-robbing-screen

    I think I understand the way this will...
  20. An inspection, some photos and more questions than answers

    Earlier this week I posted here about my concern that the weight of my hive was dropping significantly. I got some excellent responses, which were greatly appreciated. I did an inspection today to...

    Too late to treat for mites?

    On a separate thread I documented how I haven't treated for mites because the mite count seemed low. But based on some comments on that thread, I'm rethinking that. As we head into fall / winter, is...
  22. Putting a box back on a Langstroth without killing bees

    Newbee question number 737...

    This bugs me every time and I've been meaning to ask here. Every time I take off the upper boxes from my Langstroth, by the time I put them back on there are bees all...
  23. Re: Have I screwed up (hive weight has dropped dramatically)?

    Thank you, Dave. I have learned already that for every firm opinion in beekeeping there are 100+ equally firm contrary opinions :) On a more serious note, is your suggestion to treat regardless i.e....
  24. Re: Have I screwed up (hive weight has dropped dramatically)?

    Thank you, Alex. That looks excellent and I will consider that.

    In the meanwhile, my bees have got through another three mason jars of syrup. So, that's five jars in less than 48 hours. I remember...
  25. Re: Have I screwed up (hive weight has dropped dramatically)?

    Thanks for all the responses everyone. I appreciate that.

    I haven't treated for mites. I checked a couple of weeks ago and saw no indications I needed to do so. As to the inspection, I did one...
