    Re: Storing built out frames

    Last year I had been playing around with some "outside storage". I have no real storage space in our freezers and can only put in a frame at a time. So last year I stored some trial comb outside in...

    I saw one of Tom's chats once but honestly had trouble getting through the first part of the book. I'll give it a try. As for why all the bees disappeared ... keeping with the Democracy analogy ......

    Re: SwarmTrapCam is live for 2020!!!

    Just speculating but I wouldn't have expected it to plummet... maybe the swarm got caught ... with all the activity I wouldn't have expected them to leave that quickly.

    Re: Applied Apivar today

    Better late than never! Not to change your IPM strategy but "Formic Acid" available as Formic pro is approved for use while honey supers are in place. Just remember to look at the label with regard...

    Re: 2020 How was your winter?

    So far so good, 10/10. The nice weather has really helped some of the weaker hives but I still expect to have some losses. 3 out of the 10 didn't get up to weight in time for winter so they may not...
