Hi All!I am going to be initiating a trap out and because of some cross combing and treatment issues with my current, only top bar hive, I am was wondering if anyone would be willing to sell me a couple of top bar combs of eggs/brood. You can reply…

Hello!The other week one of my hives swarmed, which is great, only, when I checked on them on Friday, they looked to be queenless, no eggs or brood but still lots of bees and honey. I'd like to get a queen in there as soon as there is one available.…

Hey Ya'll, I am needing to queen my trap out after two unsuccessful queen raising by adding comb with eggs. They don't seem bad off so I would like to give them a queen asap, so that they wont have any issues. It's strange because the last I checked…

Kate Viers replied to Christina Parlapiano's discussion How Often Should We Open Our Hives
"If you have top bar and it's early in the season, I would tend to check more often so that you can prevent cross-combing. Once a week or every 10-14 days seems to be good. Also, in an established hive, during swarm season, I also check often for sig…"

Kate Viers replied to Kate Viers's discussion Queen activity…?
"Thanks so much for your reply. I do believe the queen is still there because I saw her the last time I was in there and the hive was already dipping in population. I didn't spot any eggs but there was larva and capped brood… just not a lot, no queen…"

Kate Viers replied to John Lebsack's discussion Bees collecting at entrances at night.
"It is normal. This is called bearding the hive… or a bee beard. It's what the bees do when it's hot to ventilate the hive. It's not necessarily a bad sign as bees like the sun but you might consider, if they get nothing but full sun, providing a lit…"

Thank you Ted and Chantal, I can see why feedi…"
