"With the weather changing to triple digits this week, does anyone have any ideas on avoiding broken/melted comb? I know that the KTB hive people have this problem on a regular basis but I have yet to see a solution, even anecdotal."

"After watching how rough the Lang beekeepers are with their frames I decided to give my comb stibility by going with a modified version. It's a topbar with 3" sides, no bottom, wax starter strip, and no foundation. This…"

Wm. Epps replied to Lisa Moss's discussion combine a swarm with weak hive
"I answered your other post before seeing this. If you have a weak hive and no queen, by all means combine the two. It takes the stress out of trying to start a "new" hive with limited resources and you are almost 100% certain that the…"

Wm. Epps replied to Lisa Moss's discussion Swarm in East Mountains
"That's exactly what you do with swarms, put them in full size hives. Do you have honey, pollen, and extra brood that you can use to get the new hive started?. It would be the same as if this was a divide that you created! It's good that…"
