My hive swarmed again yesterday - very large swarm, I captured them and gave them to Brett. My question: is the queen that's replacing the queen that left with the swarm mature now, or is she still…Continue

"Good call, I smoked em in, didn't see the queen. Took the inner cover off the new hive body, a lot of wax being drawn on the inner cover above the frames. I had put a fully drawn frame in the center of the new body, they were drawing out the…"

Trap out/ Cut out

DRHorton homes called me a few minutes ago and has a colony in one of their spec homes in Huning Ranch (Los Lunas across from the Walmart). They want to give us an opportunity to remove rather than exterminate. If anyone wants to look at the situation, call me at 505-975-4500 and I'll put you in touch with their superintendent. The sale is pending removal, so time is of the essence.See More

"Absolutely! I removed some last year and it really hurt my feelings.  I was actually thinking of starting another hive, I need to order some boxes. I will let you know what I find out about the queen cells shortly, I think I'm going to…"

"The swarm usually leaves just before the new queen hatches.  I wouldn't remove the additional swarm cells unless you can confirm that you have a fertile queen.  You could try to move them to new hives and grow more queens.  If…"

Replacement Queen

My hive swarmed again yesterday - very large swarm, I captured them and gave them to Brett. My question: is the queen that's replacing the queen that left with the swarm mature now, or is she still in the queen cell? I want to go in and remove any additional swarm cells, but I want to make sure the new queen has hatched. I will look for her, but want to wait to open the hive if she likely hasn't hatched yet.See More

"Interesting, I knew the swarm urge was strong but am surprized they did it today.  I guess swarms are like babies, when the time comes nothing else matters! "

"Thanks, Stacy. No worries. I'm glad Chase got them before they moved on or succumbed to the weather."

"Hey Brett, Chases' number is 505-803-4309. Give him a call and he'll get you a colony. They were really starting to get active and I was afraid they would move on so we captured them. Thank you for calling."

"Hi all, I've talked to Brett, we're going to send them home to one of his top bar hives! Half my children are moving out to start their own life away from Daddy - I think I'm gonna cry!"

Brett Rimer replied to Stacy Warden's discussion Swarm
"I can take them. I could be there by one if that works. Could you keep them in a box until then? Brett 450-5204"

Swarm

I've got a pretty good size swarm here above my garage - easily accessible - I've got no place to put them. Let me know if you're interested or have a place to put them, I can cut them out. You know how it goes, they'll probably leave soon after it warms up today! Stacy 975-4500See More
