My thought as well.
You look like you belong on the Red Green show! :lol:
A for perseverance.
I think there's a slice of pie in your near future. :wink: (pictures seal the deal)
Hello from way up here too! :hi:
This a friendly place to hang out and learn. Ask questions when you have 'em, offer answers when you are comfortable.
Give it a week to 10 days.
My hunch is that you have a secondary swarm, and they were just resting, with scouts out looking for a new home when you picked them up. I doubt it had anything to do with...
Just wait until you're in your 12th year of beekeeping!
Or like Iddee and tec, in their 92nd! :wink: :lol:

Hey Richard and Linda. Thanks for sending those pics of you installing your bees.
A bit of a backgrouind folks. I met Richard and Linda at "Bee School", a fundraiser put on by a neighbouring...

Seems like fatbeeman was victim as well.
My only concern is that it is a 2 year ban.
If any of these chemicals are now in the ground, how many years might it be before any difference can be detected?
Congratulations, nothing like doing a cut-out to get the heart beating faster, that's what keeps us looking younger than the non-beekeeping community. :thumbsup: :lol:
Depends on if the swarm was a prime swarm (actively laying queen) or a secondary swarm (virgin queen). It sounds like it may be a secondary swarm, they are usually not that big.
If it is a secondary...
Now that was a good way to start my day!
And Slim left town.
Are you kidding me! :shock: That looks like a honey super! :eek: Are you telling me your bees are already up into a honey super, drawn comb, filled and capped it?
Weird about the non-use of...

:lol: :rolling: :rotfl:
I would agree with you Ef, but I'm thinking with this young lady only being hours old, might they not be tricked into thining she had hatched in their hive to begin with? Heavy smoke, and a queen...
I need you to take my pictures for me!
Well done! :thumbsup:
Darned camera, not happy with the quality of the pictures, but anyway.
So I checked today and sure enough, one of the cells had hatched and there she was marching around in her cage. I removed the...
Still a good catch. Haven't seen you for a while. Glad you posted. :thumbsup:
I always find those deals hard to pass on, even when I know I shouldn't.
Good catch G3! :thumbsup:
I think these cells are ready to hatch, the only problem I have now is rain everyday until Monday! :roll:
I guess I may have to check these in less than ideal circumstances. :|
So if I'm reading...
This is the part that puzzles me Jack. A queen hatches from a cell and is OK, but one that hatched from that cell elsewhere a couple hours later is a no go?
I may be just wasting my time but hey,...
OK, I gave it a try. Here are some pics.
I am just going to pop them into introduction cages with candy and a couple of attendants (if this even works).
I am having a hard time trying to figure why...

Hey Jack, I really want to know how this turned out for you.
I have a bunch of nucs that didn't accept their queens and all of them have cells on the go.
On the last one however, I tried the lemon...
