    My year old hive swarmed 3 days ago. Half left, half stayed I caught and rehived. Today the same year old hive swarmed again. Half left, half stayed. I am not expericenced enough to know if this is ok. Is there something wrong with my hive configuration? I have 2 deeps and 2 supers on...

    Hi! My significant other (SO) and I are beginning beekeepers (he more than I, to be honest). For some context, this is a new hive we obtained the first week of May from Bee Weavers in Navasota. The hive was doing really well, so much so that we needed to add a super 3 weeks ago. I am posting...

  4. Swarms, Cut outs, and Trap outs
    Started last Wednesday, seems like every hive in North Texas is sending off a reproductive swarm. We got rain twice, and blooms are coming on and the bees are optomistic. Got one in Southlake yesterday, one a mile north of me this afternoon I suspect might have been my bees. (did swarm pickup...

    Hi all, I have been watching beekeeping for a while and finally took the plung. Last week I had a friend deliver about 2 pounds of bees with some cone from a meter box swarm. I took what brood cone I could find along with a bit of other good stuff and rubber banded the cone into empty frames. I...

    Is anyone else having trouble with the phone app? I can't view any forums. Ive tried updating it, deleting it, turning my phone on and off. I miss using it on my phone. My empty hive attracted a swarm today! Im so excited. I hope I didn't disturb them by looking in the view window tonight with...

    I have two hives next to each other. The stained hive lost a queen about a month ago (robbers I think). The white hive swarmed six days ago. I came home today to find a cloud of bees in the air and landed up in a tree about 40 feet off the ground. I couldn't tell which hive the bees had come...

    I moved a hive into a Top Bar Hive with a queen excluder (1/4" screen from Ace in the entrance). This included all the honeycomb which had brood on it. The next evening they went back to same place so as I was moving them again, they swarmed into a nearby tree. I used a ladder and knocked the...

    Here's a quick question for some beekeeping experts: I caught a swarm today from a tree in someone's front yard. The swarm was quite small and I suspect that it is a secondary swarm with an unmated queen. When I first approached the swarm, I observed them for a minute or two. I swear that I...

    I came home early today since I am way over on hours with the Florida State Fair and bees going to California. There was a swarm in progress going into a column of the carport on our farm. Stacks of supers wiith comb and they pick the column?!?! Videos on Dropbox...

    In almost every hive I have inspected from Marion County north to the Georgia border there are signs of swarm preparation. Don't be afraid to check when the weather is even close to good. You may be surprised how much pollen and honey they are bringing in or have brought in recently also. The...

    There are bees and a hive in our well house. They were discovered today and we need them removed this week. Please give me a call on Thursday some time between 9:30 AM and 7:30 PM. They attacked the pest exterminator man today when he opened the lid on the well pump. Kenneth Sumerford 333...

    Don't you love those evening knocks at the door!..."Would you like some honey bees?" A local farm had a swarm - easy, low to the ground tree, at a soybean field a mile or so away. They even did the wave when I snipped the first branch! :yahoo::yahoo: It is nice the word is getting out that we...

    Hi, Everyone, I'm relatively new to beekeeping (second year, second hive) and I'm having some issues with my newest hive. I have a couple questions about what to do, but I need to give some background first. Bear with me if you can, I would really appreciate any advice I can get. I had a...

    The observation hive swarmed yesterday in the rain from the Apiary Inspection Division. We hived them this morning. If you want to know if you can catch swarms in Florida Cathy or I will answer the phone, but a picture is worth a thousand words. Ryan is on the ladder. Ryan inspects for several...

    A swarm above the queen excluder, virgin queen and all! When Steve yelled from the beeyard, I said that sure looks like a swarm! Look for a tiny virgin queen. She would be able to get through the excluder. She is in there ... The are covering her up, caramel colored long skinny girl! It...
