    I had a similar experience this past Spring. New queen laid great for about a month, and then I started noticing multi egg cells. Several days went by and they killed her. The laying worker...

    You will likely notice a decrease in brood production. This is normal. You’ll want to have the appropriate amount of honey stores going into winter. We usually have some goldenrod nectar flow going...

    I guess my color perspective is limited. I have always considered it lighter because it about as light as I get around here. It’s about the same color as the early spring honey I harvest in April....

    I like to think that the lighter colored (clover, privet, holly, Chinese Tallow etc. around here) honey sells faster than the darker honey from my honor stand, but every fall I'm proven wrong. The...

    I haven’t sold any that way. I’m not really sure how it would taste if you mixed it up. My guess is not as good as the tallow honey by itself, just my opinion. That tallow honey is hard to beat. ...

    You’re very welcome. Just don’t let the crystals run out. When you’re ready to put the supers back on next spring or whenever, let the supers air out for a while to get rid of the moth crystal gas...

    Hi Brad. Don’t replace the frames. The bees will clean everything for you. Let them take care of it. I assume moths and other insects can’t get into the basement. If that’s correct, you should be...

    Sorry to hear that. This time of year I would suspect varroa as the culprit for causing them to move out. Did you treat them? You may check the bottom board for dead mites.

    Similar story - several years ago, I had several hives in the middle of partridge peas. Never saw a honeybee on them. I don’t think it would be worth it. Just my opinion. Plant white clover!
