GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Re: Laying worker question

Not usually. Take the hive away from its spot and shake the bees out on the ground. Put the empty hive away. The bees will beg their way into other hives.
Don't waste much time on a laying worker hive. It's very seldom that you'll have any success.

HONEYBEE REMOVAL / Re: How to remove bees from property

"In Arizona, as you know, there is colonies of Africanized bees, if it was them, you would know it."
Actually, unless you are close to the hive, there is no difference between European bees and African bees that are in the field. They are  very defensive not aggressive.
Being
Arizona, there is a good chance that they are Africanized bees.

Hi Jim,

Understand and fully agree.

GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Laying worker question
« Last post by LKBruns on June 22, 2017, 09:27:56 PM »
If I have a laying worker hive can I place it over a queen right hive with brood (using a double screen shim in between hives with entrances opposite each other).  Will this suppress the laying workers to accept a queen after 14 days or so,

HONEYBEE REMOVAL / Re: Attic removal question

Thanks psparr. I'm am trying to attach a picture to this comment. This is the day they moved in. A little over 2 months ago. My plan is to not use smoke if I can avoid it, carefully remove comb, place it into my hive with rubber bands, and hopefully spot and cage the Queen. Then place the hive at the entrance to hopefully catch any stragglers. After dark I'm going to plug the hive and take them home. How's that sound? I've done a couple this way and it worked out good.

The comb will be about as big as the cluster you see. If you have access to them as you described, it should be a nice easy removal. Getting the stragglers might be tough though.

I see it continuing. Only because these aren't terrorist attacks. It is a jihad. They aren't trying to scare us, they are trying to start a holy war to bring about the Cala fate.
This jihad will easily build upon itself. Muslims have proven through history that they like a good fight.

Does anyone think this will spiral out of control soon?

Possibly.  I think the loan wolf attacks are more psychologically damaging to the general public.  You can convince the people that a small group does not represent the larger group.  It's harder to convince the people that the larger group is OK when it spins off attackers that don't seem to have an organization as motive, but are attacking because of ideology alone.  At that point, all become suspect and retaliation against all is going to seem justified. 

Solution?  IDK.....
