Rafael Aguilar: Hello don... Am Rafael Aguilar.. From central Mexico am a bee keeper bigenner...I have Ben in this field for just about two years now . And what I want to ask you.. It's about a trap.. It's almost like the propolis trap... But this one. It's used for keeping the queen bee. On the two first boxes.. So that the queen can't go up.. Only the honey bees... What's the trap called..? And where can I get few of them... I hope that you can help me.. And thanks.. Have a good weekend...
natserog: Im looking for a feeder that sits inside in its own body on inner cover for 5 frame nucs that bees cant access area and it is easy to fill with no spill.
Jeramy Stevens: can you use Liquid lecithin to make Epson oil bee feed
natserog: subscribed! newbie here. Trying to find the best method to feed my bees I just got. I have the tray frame now but there must be better ways without disturbing the hive. thanks don!!
Ants In My Eyes Johnson: Activate the bees........ That sounds fun.
Joy Gill: I'm a newbie and I have 2 hives under 2 months. I just added my first deep and removed the reducer and added a front feeder. I hated the top feeder. I had more casualties then I expected. I wish I could share a pic here but I cant. I switched out 3 filled combs for empty frames just to get them acclimated. Am I doing it right?
Nick Crites: Hi Don,
I made special "feeder hive top lids'. I use the feeder lids that fit on a mason jar and cut a hole in the lid. I used 3/4" plywood to make the lid. I can feed all 12 hives in 2 minutes. No bee jacket necessary even for mean bees. Dadant sells a jar that is comparable to a 2 quart jar. This will last 2 days.
marc bee: as allways you have made another great video,but my question is not related to that subject.I am wondering ,if I take a clump of bees maybe 200 or more and I take them within a 2 miles distance to a nectar source,do you think they will recognize the source and go back to the hive and give directions to the source?I thank you for taking the time to read my question.
doransignal: i have a question about entrances. there is 2 sizes on my wooden piece for the entrance. should i use the smallest one for a hive that i just started this year or the slightly larger opening? thanks
Andor Pasztor: I would think they either have no room for honey or they are hungry, cannot feed newcomers. Am I wrong?
Don The Fat Bee Man: if they need feed now is the time.lift the hives see if there light.
zombiebuggy51: Don I live in zone 7; I think the same as Lula. When do you start feeding in your top feeders. What month/day thanks
Don The Fat Bee Man: if no honey flow is on you run that risk.
Ben “beekeeper” Little: So when you put the 5 gallon buckets out, does it cause Robbing?
Don The Fat Bee Man: its possible they got into pesticide.
Elton Sanderson: i like this video and i would like ask what is wrong when i see my bees carrying out baby bees and throwing them out of hive
Darkwoods: I use 1 gallon chicken feeders,the water gets low the bees would crawl through the opening,and get stuck in the pail,so i cut scrape screen wire i use on btm boards of hives,laid it in the feeder,,(red lid where the sugar water builds up) I just laid the lid on the wire cut a inter/outer circle and it fit snug.The wire helps them climb in/out,i still get a few drowned bees,but not as many as before..Thanks for the videos,keep up the good work.
Don The Fat Bee Man: thanks for watching
Paul Rowland: Just left you the note about the Warre hive. I think you are on the right track. All my friends in Georgia experience winter losses in high per cent using standard 10-Frame Langstroth. My Japanese friends have almost no losses. They use hives that are similar in space to the Warre hive. Go Don, you are the man! And thanks!! Hope you address a natural hive size more in future videos.Go Don, you are the man! And thanks!!
Don The Fat Bee Man: @MrBeeman59 thanks for watching we made 6 more videos will post them soon.
