Re: [beekeeping] COURSE I CAUGHT IT
- Read it, a pretty good book. Give em lots and lots of space. Got 2 of those Snellgrove boards (BetterBee), never had any luck with em though. When bees take a mind to swarm sometimes it seems impossible to stop . Had three hives that looked VERY VERY healthy, like it would be a sure bet they'd be swarm material later on. So I pulled one frame of partially uncapped brood from each hive and put em in 2 frame nuc boxes. Put an empty frame beside the broodframe, shook a bunch more bees on top of em and closed it up. That ought to take a little pressure off things!! Might be pushing the spring weather (If it gets too cold the brood'll die) a bit though.----- Original Message -----From: david flathmanSent: Tuesday, March 30, 2004 9:45 AMSubject: Re: [beekeeping] COURSE I CAUGHT IT"swarming" by snellgrove.
a really good read on the causes and steps to deter
the urge to swarm.
