Jeannie Pace commented on Jefferson's group Topbar hive users.
"Sadly, I cleaned out my hive this morning. I suspected the girls had died or absconded so my disappointed wasn't huge.  Late summer I had to requeen.  The new queen was laying a great brood pattern.  When I winterized the hive,…"

Jeannie Pace commented on Chris's group East Mountain Beeks
"Chris and Eric,  Thanks for your feedback.  Sounds like I need to regroup for spring.  I have a top bar hive. I left the bars of comb in the order the bees had constructed them. I was a bit worried they might have to break cluster.…"

Jeannie Pace commented on Chris's group East Mountain Beeks
"Happy spring fellow Beeks,  Because of the cooler temps and the high winds, I have not opened to inspect my top bar hive. On the last fall inspection, the colony was growing and had 10 combs of food and I continued to feed them until they…"

Eric Bunnel replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Pattern? in the group East Mountain Beeks
"It shouldn't be an problem. The only issues is if the hive is still stong enough to raise a good queen."

Jeannie Pace replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Pattern? in the group East Mountain Beeks
"Eric,  When a bar of eggs from another hive is installed are the existing workers ok with a new brood if they are different types of bees? "

Jeannie Pace replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Pattern? in the group East Mountain Beeks
"Eric, your offer is very generous. I will inspect again this week and seriously look for brood and queen.  I'm usually hesitant to brush the workers off the comb but I may be necessary to uncover for a closer look.  It seems like a…"

"Thanks Jeremy,  This is encouraging. I plan to inspect again this week and do a more serious search for brood and the queen.  Jeannie"

Jeremy McKellar replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Patterns in the group Topbar hive users.
"I have had several queens that took brood breaks during the height of summer.  Not sure if its caused by forage or other things like humidity or temp.  Now that it has cooled a little and we got some rains hopefully there will be a nice…"

Eric Bunnel replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Pattern? in the group East Mountain Beeks
"The bees not drawing new comb is not a big surprise. Until the last week we have been very dry and there has not been much nectar available. If you need a bar of eggs, let me know. I also have an extra queen that I could let you have. She's an…"

Jeannie Pace replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Pattern? in the group East Mountain Beeks
"Thanks Eric and Chris,  When I put the bees in they were vigorous comb builders.  The hive expanded quickly. There has been no new comb on bars I added a few weeks ago.   The lack of foraging may have stressed the hive and thus…"

Chris replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Pattern? in the group East Mountain Beeks
"Hi Jeannie, I agree with Eric.  If you can’t find the queen, searching for eggs and larva is the next best thing.  Often times, I can’t locate the queen but I do find evidence that she was active in the past few days when I see…"

Eric Bunnel replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Pattern? in the group East Mountain Beeks
"Did you see any eggs or larva? If not you may have lost your queen. Look carefully and if you don't see any I would give them a comb of eggs or young larva ASAP and see what they do. This time of year they should still be able to raise their…"

Wasn't Olivia Carril GREAT?  I ran out and bought a copy of her book (so now I can return the library's copy!!)

If I see she's ever giving another local talk I'll be SURE to post it here!
