Another good one JP , keep them coming, I would have not though of cutting the column open like that, give good ideas on getting the bees,
As always, a great learning experience. Just one question: I noticed on one of the frames, the sections of comb that you banded in were about an inch or two below the top bar---do the bees fill in that empty space with comb or do they just connect the blocks of comb to each other and to the frame's sides and bottom?
Enjoyed it as always. Got to see you with that high tech device to light the smoker too
good question Efmesch. I was also wondering if you leave the comb in long enough to let the brood emerged and the bees to start drawing new foundation, and then cycle the transfers brood comb out of the colony? Or leave it in the colony as brood comb?
The bees will fill in the empty spaces. After a while you cannot tell if it was a cut out frame or one naturally drawn, except for perhaps a piece of a rubber band here or there.
awesome and........ thank you!
enjoy watching you work! errr and dance a little too.....:lol:
Good stuff! Thansk JP!
couldn't watch the video permissions were restricted.
It must be the settings in your computer. I just clicked on it and it started right up.
no. computer, lol smart phone
Don't sound like it is too smart....
galaxy S3 maybe I just need to figure it out lol
Barry, all my videos can be viewed on a PC. Some can only be viewed on a PC. I like to add music to my videos (like millions of others in youtube land) but youtube restricts viewing on mobile devices on about every other video that has music borrowed from musicians. I have nothing at all to do with this and have no say nor the ability to change these settings.
oh I wasn't blaming you never thought you placed any restrictions.on anything lol would be rather counter productive...
Great video, thanks.
I couldn't help but notice that you were standing on the top rung of that step ladder, it looked like the porch was pretty high. Could be a pretty nasty fall if the bees were to give you a little push. Hate to see a beek get hurt while enjoying his craft. :wink:
