  2. The Queen & Bee Breeding
    Hello everyone, I need your input on the problem I'm having. The problem is: I have 2 hives that are next to each other. One is doing exceptionally well, and the other one is weak. I have originally bought the "weak hive" as a nuc. So it came with the queen that was laying eggs and she was...

    I have 8 frame double deep hives on 6 way pallets. Hives are healthy and ready to go. I've recently treated the hives with terramycin and routinely treated for mites. If you have any questions give me a call or email. 530-923-0942 [email protected] Noel Tinoco

    Hey guys, I have a new colony on the way but have a hive from last year with frames full of honey and everything else that my old colony was in. I did not harvest the honey from last year due to a few different reasons. Anyway... my question is can I introduce my new colony into the existing...

    Why the fuss over bees? Is the U.S. in the midst of a bee-pocalypse? The science says no. Bee populations in the U.S. and Europe remain at healthy levels for reproduction and the critical pollination of food crops and trees. But during much of the past decade we have seen higher-than-average...

    Hi BeeSource community, I have the unique opportunity to participate in a research project with the Canadian Light Source in Saskatoon. The Canadian Light Source operates the largest synchrotron in Canada that is used to analyze the molecular composition of substances. In order to get selected...

    My second cut out went into the first hive I built. I kept it at my Mom's property out of the city since I live where backyard beekeeping isn't allowed. The colony didn't survive for more reasons than i need to go into, so I cleaned it out and took it home since I decided to put hardware cloth...
  8. Top Bar & Horizontal Hive Forum
    Yesterday I pulled a colony of bees out of a water meter box. It was much larger than i expected. I wired up 4 large brood combs and even had to cut off each side a little even though my Top Bar hive is wider than most. The remaining small pieces were put between the wired combs under two top...

    Today, I was calling pest control people to ask for information of a swarm I could get. One guy said if I had called 10 minutes later they would have been dead. He was kind enough to wait 40 minutes for me to get there. The amazing coincidence (if you are a non-believer) is I got my suit and...

    I just got interested in beekeeping after meeting a beekeeper that wanted to use my land for his hives. I received quite a bit of one on one lessons and got my feet wet exploring the bee yard and hives. I decided this would be something I would like and it is also a good use of my land. I think...

    It is warm enough that my colonies are stretching their wings. (50°) If this warm stretch continues and the queen starts laying brood, will the colony save the brood by feeding them, or save the colony by clustering when the rigid Chicago winter returns? I remember reading something about...
