    lol as a general rule I make 2 spring reversals about 30 days apart after that no need so long as your adequitely supered if not the bees will rapidly plug every cell with nectar, honey or pollen--this constricts the brood nest, this ( amoung other factors ) causes the swarming impulse.

    maybe it wasn't new2it's hive jack............:lol:

    (ps new2it, i don't reverse or rotate unless the girls can't figure out where they are supposed to be in the spring or at some other time for some other reason....the bees move up, the bees move down, well, usually! and btw, very funny thread!)

    Finally Barry answered the question no one asked. And with a good answer at that.
    reversing causes the bees to re-evaluate the hive, move some poorly placed stores expand the brood chamber to its full potentual and can be a means of swarm control.

    :oops: I found what I was looking for in another post, but couldn't delete this post. But thanks for all the input. I didn't reverse. BTW: Why did everyone just assume I was a "He"?

    We assumed? us Drones need to stick together especially at this time of year. the workers are going to gang up on us and try to put us out for the winter. They will take over the forum discussing hand creams, lip balms, candle making, fruit cake [FONT=&quot]recipes and[/FONT] Potpourri.
