I hear you on the pain pills.  My brother was a kidney patient...dialysis, removal, recepient for nigh on 35 years...he went through a lot of pain with different operations.  He always said that's what that stuff is far.  Naturally, ya gotta quit'em sooner or later, but while your needin'em, use'em!

The reason I asked about the greens is due to the high oxylates which are conducive to kidney stones...kale, spinach, collards,...even okra and some nuts.

I hope your better soon,

I also understand why you would vote for Obama. A man who is not only extreme left but also the most corrupt president ever to hold office. A man who claims to be a Constitutional Law Professor, who never was a Constitutional Law Professor. Good job Blue.

On this I agree with you, and probably many other things as well.

Yeah, we have the Mountain Fiest here. I love hunting behind those little dogs. Looks like Im gonna have to borrow a collar too. My gyp decided that a wide open run for 45 min tonite without the inkling of respect for a command was in order. In fairness, I havent given her as much time as I need to, but whoa and come are a must for me and she knows them. Just chose to ignore. Shes on the right in this picture. Llewellin Setter. If the Highway wasnt so close, I could break her at home, but I cant have that activity within 200yds of a major highway. G chop chop

 Both of my hives have two deeps and three mediums. I suspect that one of the hives is using both deeps and a medium for brood. I believe Michael Palmer uses two deeps and a medium for brood as well. My own personal choice is, I try to keep a box ahead of the hives.

In the summer, I always find varying amounts of bees hanging on to the screen underneath. They never seem agitated or distressed, and sometimes I see them either being fed or passing on nectar (can't tell which) to bees on the inside of the screen. I have wondered if in part it might not be a shortcut for passing gathered nectar without having to pile inside the hive. I have noticed that some will stay there overnight, too. Keeping cool?

Here in the northeast, I'm wondering about adding brood space to an established hive - how do you know if it's necessary? I have a second year hive that did well in the spring but didn't swarm and is really booming. It now has two 10-frame deeps and two supers on (one of which I just extracted). How would I know if they needed more brood space? Is it likely with our season up here that a hive would ever need more brood space than 2 deeps?

If I leave on any outside lights facing the hives, I will get bees buzzing them at night - they will even do this at a window of a room where a light fixture is visible.

Get plenty of the rubber bands to hold the comb in the frames.  Be sure that you get the Queen.  Like Michael Bush said, once you get them in the hive and move them have a branch or two to place in front of the entrance.  I have moved some 10 to 100 yards with out any trouble, so far anyway.  Cut the comb to fit in the frame.  When I move a hive I have some aluminum screen rolled tight and a few inches longer than the entrance that I cram into the entrance with the hive tool.  I also put a tie down around the hive so it doesn't come apart, lid and bottom on.  Good luck.  I'm sure you will do fine, just take your time it will all work out.

I was at my hive on Sunday and checked the hive and added a second super.  After I put the first super back on the hive, which I sat on the stand right beside the hive, I noticed some bees by the bottom of the hive.  Took a peak under it at the bottom screen and there was a bunch of bees under there, maybe enough to almost cover the screened bottom.  I thought they must have come off the honey super and just needed to find there way back in.  Tonight I went back out to pull a sticky board off of another hive and took a peak at this hive and they are still under there? Is this a sign of something?  Not sure what this means.  Hive looked great on Sunday, seen the queen, found eggs, good laying patter, so far so good.  Also this is my first year and I have two hives, both hives seem great.
