    Have learned a lot these first 3 years. Lost 5 of my 8 hives. Not going to be swayed from my TF production though. I've been studying Kirk Webster, Michael Bush, Michael Palmer,and Larry Connor this winter.
    Will be using deadouts and frames of honey to make increases this Spring. Have been building Nucs all winter.
    I'm looking forward to Spring.

    10 hives, 3 years, TF for 3 years and going to stay that way. Have 10 Queens from 3 different TF apiaries ordered. Going to mix my genetics up and do a better job of winter preparations.

    Have a great season!

    I am a new backyard beekeeper with a very small apiary in Monterey County, CA. This is my second season and I am at 1 hive (started with two from packages). My hives have been TF and foundationless. I want to learn to produce local TF queens and share the genetics with other beekeepers in the area (long-term, ambitious goal).

    And where can I get some yellow tf bees to keep?
    Any available source?
    Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?

    Is burning a hive that has AFB considered a treatment?

    How can you treat a hive that you already
    burn down? This is silly!
    Treating to me is like a possible cure later on.
    Something that already been burnt down has
    no survivor therefore there is nothing left
    to be treated. So no, it is not consider a
    treatment but rather write it off as a loss. Now if AFB has a cure and you
    give them something to treat then it is consider a treatment. No cure so far I have read.

    No. It is complying with the law.

    Never treated and killed a lot of package bees my first 3 years; wasted a bunch of $ with a lot of frustration. Began trapping swarms and making my own queens from survivor stock and that has proven be effective for getting bees to overwinter.

    Running 300 hives in SE Texas. First year of TF - lost 90% of my bees. (8 years ago) Had 1 yard of 20 that saved my *****. Been running TF ever since. Been running bees the better part of 38 years. Not an expert but I do know what I'm doing. Getting setup to start selling queens, nucs & singles next season. Not on a massive scale. These will be quality verses quantity. Direct contact my name @ yahoo.com.

    Currently holding 68 hives in southeastern UK, 6 years into a bond program using local ferals. See my thread 'Natural Selection Management' https://www.beesource.com/forums/show...42#post1249742 for my methods. Gearing up this year to produce nucs for sale next spring.
