Re: NEW TOPIC . . sort of...Re: [beekeeping] Russian queens
- I put the second brood chamber on June 20, then checked the hive approx 3 weeks later. I was surprised to find it completely full! I was in a panic because I didn't have any supers to put on it, so I quickly ordered some and got them 4 days later. I put a honey super on last Friday (with a queen excluder between the deep and super.) I'll check it on Saturday to see how they're doing, if the weather co-operates. This hive is my first one ever. I started late April with about 10,000 bees. Italians. Judging from what little experience I have, they seem to be doing pretty good.Leah in Brockport, PA----- Original Message -----From: PalOfHim@...Sent: Thursday, July 18, 2002 12:37 PMSubject: NEW TOPIC . . sort of...Re: [beekeeping] Russian queensI will be going down to investigate my 2 hives sometime next week...
About a month ago we put the new deeps on.... removed the queen excluders..... the weather has been VERY hot and dry...but we have been having cooler days and some rain. I am gonna see if it is gonna be necessary to put a super on each. It would be nice to actually get some comb for us this year.. but.. being that they are new hives, I doubt we will. Anyone in Missouri getting their supers on yet ??? How do your hives look ?? I am near Sedalia.
