    Hi Folks, I am new at this. I bought a 5 frame nuc just over a week ago and transferred to a box. I think the colony is reproducing rapidly. There are bees in 6 frames, a decent amount of brood, some nectar, but no honey and no pollen. We are open feeding them, with the feeder some 20' away bc...

    The more I learn, the stupider I feel... :( We got into bees from watching "Elementary," where the Sherlock Holmes character had a huge, 6' tall, ornate, Observation Hive on the roof of his building. It was SO beautiful and the bees SO fascinating to watch, even for their short screen-time...

    Hello Beesourcers! I feel like calling you Bee Sorcerers because this knowledge is truly incredible and seems so remote from everyday work life for most people. I'm grateful for this forum and all those of you sharing so generously. We moved to Chicago 4 years ago from beautiful upstate New...

I've read a lot here on bees clustering under a screened bottom board and also combining a laying worker hive with a queenright colony, but can't find the answer to this one: What to do about bees from a laying worker hive we shook out in front of a queenright...

I have 10 colonies, mostly top bar hives, although I run a teaching apiary so we also have Langstroth hives and a Warre hive for demo, along with my hybrid top bar hive. This is my second year of beekeeping. Love my bees. NE SARE...

    Hello all, we have recently convinced the city commission here in Alamogordo, NM to allow urban beekeeping. It was quite an achievement. Now we have been asked to help draft rules for urban beekeeping. I realize in a city environment, rules are needed to prevent abuse, so I am looking for...

    Greetings, Put my order in for two nucs. About to get a storage shed built, at which point I'll order the hive bodies. Got my suit, my hive tool, my smoker, some assistant beeking under my belt, and a lot of book learnin'. I've alerted the neighbors to my intentions. Come spring, my back yard...

    Is it too preposterous? I have a 20'x5' balcony that I would like to keep bees on in the spring. My biggest concern is that it might bother my neighbours My balcony is seperated by my neighbours with a thick concrete wall that blocks out most sound and if I put a hive in the center of the...
