GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Re: Ants
« Last post by GSF on July 05, 2015, 10:24:39 PM »
The ants around my place just walked right on top of the cinnamon. So I put the stand legs in butter bowls filled with water. They made a bridge and walked across other ants to get in the hive. So I put burnt motor oil in the bowls instead. It stopped the ants. When it rains the oil comes out I have to remove as much water as I can and refill with oil Ditto on the tall weeds or grass - great ant ladder.

I like the cinnamon approach. The ants are already in the empty end of the hive.

I've seen it occasionally with my hives.  It looks to me that the one bee is cleaning the other.  Maybe someone else knows for sure.

It won't kill the ants but they don't like cinnamon.  I sprinkle it on my inner covers when they decide to take up residence between the inner and top cover.

Depending on where you are and the amount of available nectar(Flow) it would not be unusual to begin seeing Drone evictions. They kick them out when times get tight. You should add your location to your profile. It will make it easier for members who are close to you to answer questions. Locality is huge with bees. Welcome to Beemaster. Good Luck. G

They know when to stop making them. I wouldn't worry. They are just store wasters anyway. Until it comes time for rearing queens. My hives are still loaded. I took half the surplus yesterday, I expect they will start evicting drones soon. G
