    Re: Hive Split Too Soon?

    With a strong overwintered hive I always prefer to take the queen out of the strong hive and put her in the split and let the hive make the new queen. This takes care of the problem of not having...

    Re: yellow diarrhea

    Your in Latrobe and making a split already. Even with a mated queen that seems early for this area. If this works out for you I will need to re-evaluate my timing of things. Wish you the best.

    Watched a presentation from a researcher at Penn State through my bee club today. They took package bees with known varroa and did OA dribble, vapor and spray during install. While all three methods...

    Re: Flash Player Fake Update

    I have had this happen also a few times in the last couple years. Seems to fix itself after a few days.
  5. Re: Let's just be honest: This spring is historically early.

    I don’t think my memory is faulty on this one, my junior year in high school 1975-76 the winter was mild, the ponds never froze enough to ice fish or play hockey. This year was mild, but I don’t know...

    Noticed on your You Tube video you had wood glue out in your shed. There are minimum temperature for using Titebond glues that are around fifty degrees, I, II, and III are slightly different. This...

  9. Re: A series of interviews from commercial beekeepers

    I looked at their web site. That is some expensive honey!! Maybe that is why they can afford to keep everything so clean.

    Re: Prolific Propolisers W/Photo

    I didn't take a picture, but I used apiguard in a couple hives this year and when I went to take it out the entire little tin was completely covered in propolis. Couldn't even tell if they carried...

    Re: Urgent Varroa Mite Question

    How long was the sticky board in the hive? Looks like it may have been in there for awhile. Looks like the apivar was doing its job of killing the mites. The mistake you may have made was installing...
  12. Re: Too late to add frame of eggs to queenless colony in MD?

    Yes, it's too late to try to make a new queen. Need to be 100 percent sure the hive is queen less though. It's common for queens to shut down egg laying at this time and not all queens are equal. The...

    Re: Global Warming

    Wow grins, what hypocrisy. You claim that we are in a mass extinction and everyone needs to wake up to this fact. Then we find out you have been burning wood and then claim that you will use what...

    Re: Global Warming

    From someone who has been hit by too many fence post. First science has been wrong many times in the past. Even in beekeeping, every researcher said Varro mites feed on the bees hemolymph. Well what...

    Re: Beginner Question (Emergency...maybe?)

    I highly doubt the hive was swarming, but even if it was,what was the purpose of running out to the hive and tearing it apart. How were you planning on stoping the swarming from happening? Your hive...

  20. Re: formic pro/MAQS cause the shotgun pattern?

    Have used MAQS/formicpro in the past and sometimes the queen has stopped laying for a week or so, but I've never noticed a shotgun pattern after treatment. Hard on queens means that the treatment...

    Re: Free beehives for Virginians

    The article says the number of beehives in VA. is down 50%. Is this really true. Figured with all the new save the bees people and flow hive promotions that the numbers would be increasing.
