    There a lot of threads regarding splits, and I've read several, but my question is pretty specific, so I'd like to ask it. I'm a newbie and just did three Carniolan package installs a little over a week ago. My third package had a dead queen in it, and while my package source gave me a new...

The entomologist is speaking of honeybees, bee mating being her specialty, and she knows the dauntingly steep odds drones, the males, face in fulfilling their urge to spawn.

    I'm new to all this and don't really know what I'm talking about, but have an inquisitive mind and just wanted to start a discussion. From what I've heard, Italians (and some other races I'm sure) tend to raise brood all year long (including during the winter), while other races such as...

    I'm a complete novice, starting up with two hives this spring. I've just begun reading about beekeeping basics, but I'm leaving on a trip in a couple days and I need to order my bees before I go. Then when I come back in mid-February, I'll have time to figure out woodenware and so on before...
