    I made a set of boxes 2 years ago with viewing portals on them. Went out in the snow today to clear the entrances and check for activity through the windows. VERY encouraging to say the least!

    I am working for a non profit in Puerto Rico that is funding bee research, education for children, and the building of new hives. We are curious if the domesticated AHB would survive outside of Puerto Rico. And if so in what states? Feedback, opinions, ideas are all welcome! Thank you, Devon

    Sadly this is the third fall in a row losing both our back yard hives (for various reasons) :( Past two years I brought the boxes inside to harvest what I could and then stored them in my basement. The supers seem light so I don't think we'll be harvesting, but I'm wondering if it's ok to just...

    I have 3 new single deep hives and a double nuc made from an old 10fr deep. I also have 3 big hives double deep and 3 supers or more. I am wondering the best placement or spacing for them in the apiary. My concern is robbing, now and especially later in the summer. Yes, robber screens and yes...

    Hi all! Sorry if this is the wrong sub forum. I have a hive that had a lovely colony in it, until it was gutted by a bear. The hive has been shielded from weather over the winter, but the left over comb bits have developed mold on them. I've scraped off a good deal, but the plastic foundations...

    First off: Poochie is fine. She got a trip to the vet out of it (which she loves), so she's happy. Beekeepers on the other hand are very worried. We're also going to be asking these similar questions to our regular vet (who is an experienced rural/farm vet), but we'd like more information to...

    This particular hive was swarm arrived Easter morning. Always tried to go in at the top of the trap, so I assume feral. Any smoke on their hive makes them come boiling out aggressive. They are not aggressive at other times - just when the smoke is around them. Not my other swarm or other 2...

    Have read/heard many comments about using HBH and or other EO in 1:1 syrup for feeding hives that robbing would be started. Even if all the hives are being feed the same syrup? Is this a fact or is it just another rumour that has turned into "fact" If it is true than what is the cause of the...

    This is probably a simple question but need to make sure I'm correct. Today I replaced one if my old broken hives with a brand new hive. The new hive has 10 frames. The old hive had 3. Looking at the front of the bee hive I took out 3 empty frames on the RIGHT. I replaced these frames with 3...

    What is the best season to get bees? I am interested in getting bees and have read, and read, and read up on almost everything bee related. Also I made a list of everything I need to keep bees. Now, what time of year should I get bees? Also, I was wondering, should I build my own hive or buy...

    Looking at lots of hives trying to learn what I can. I am puzzled by roof angles. Most seem to have any rain running off the roof going right where the bees come and go. Yes, I do know they don't fly in the rain - but you still have dew and maybe mist or between showers times. Why not angle them...
