    Re: Laying worker help

    Thanks! Should I put the nuk on top of the outer cover of the LW hive until she is accepted? That way when I do the combine the field bees will be able to find their way home.

    Queenless in CT

    I have a hive that has a decent amount of bees but is queenless. Is there a way to get a queen or is it a lost cause.

    Thanks
    John

    ID this plant

    I have this bush near me and the bees are all over it. Can someone ID it for me? It has pink flowers with green circular pods, about the size and shape of small grapes.
    Thanks!
