Hello! I'm located in SE New Hampshire USA. A friend and I started this beekeeping adventure last year. It's turned out to be harder than we anticipated. We started with 2 hives. Entered the winter with one strong hive. The hive didn't make it through the winter so we bought a package and 2 nucs. Both nucs swarmed (no one told us this could happen!). We now have 4 hives in different stages. Two fairly strong hives, one doing ok (package bees) and the swarm we caught that is struggling to keep up. The hardest part of this whole beekeeping thing has been finding people in the area who are willing to mentor and help. We have a tough climate here and information on how to overwinter bees in cold long winters would be of great help. So...any beekeepers in NH hit me up!

Happy to have found this forum.

Thanks!

Hi I'm wandering if any of you have had your bees cover your out Sid lights before. The last time this happen I lost a hive to some kind of infection of sorts. They are acting normal other then at late in the night going into the morning. On my two lights. And now there's a hell of a lot of them on them. Moor then I have aver seen? :s huh



Would it be possible to turn off the lights?

If I understand your question. Just make sure the top slot is cut in the ends with the step. If you cut the top slot
in the sides there will be a gap where the step is. Is this what you're talking about? Or am I not understanding
your question?

Cut your rabbit in the end pieces, not in the side pieces to prevent a little notch at each end of the frame rest.

    Meanwhile back in Mississippi. ........

Yep.... Meanwhile back in Mississippi " The Mississippi Republican Party said U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran won the state’s Republican primary runoff over challenger Chris McDaniel by 7,667 votes.

The party sent results to the Secretary of State on Monday, the legal deadline."

So there you have it, as per the title of the topic. this is not unfortunate, but is clearly sour grapes on your part. It was a very nice letter to Preince though. You can get back to attempting to sabotage now full time if you wish, and do harm to the state and it's people. Although you can congratulate Perdue along with myself at beating Kingston in the Primaryin GA. Perdue is a good man, who'll do a good job there. The state and many others, as well as this country need a real business man and not a politician at its helm for at least a bit, imo.


    Perdue won because Kingston has been in government for what ? something like eleven terms ? Perdue wants less government. I'm fine with this outcome. The democrats will most likely attack Perdue the way they attacked Romney. They want this seat.
   Bottom line. Cochran lost in the primary. He got a second bite at the apple. The establishment realized they had a second chance to defeat the Tea Party candidate. With money pumped in they were able to bribe democrats and get them to vote against McDaniel. Something like 30000 more votes the second time around. Now it is clear where we all stand. As I said, this has been an important process.
    What is also clear, you made claims which were untrue. You also proved you did not understand the Tea Party movement.

Your problem is probably just the after dark light source but here is a reference to the parasitic fly:

The earth runs on cycles and everything on it does also pretty much. When I was a kid we had lots of them, then they disappeared and now they are back here also. We had a cabin up north on lake Erie when I was a kid, and they were there no problem. we of course did the whole catching them in jars things constantly.

We were on vacation, last month, in the Smokey Mountains. They have warnings in the park now that it is illegal to collect lightning bugs. There are thousands and thousands up there and the kids cannot do what we did for years.

It's illegal to pick plants or bother any wildlife in the national park. Not so in your backyard Smiley

I moved to lower Alabama about 5 years ago and there weren't any fireflies, last year we saw a few and this year a few more.

Is it a swarm? They land all sorts of places.

I am taking he means at night during dark hours being attracted to the light. Read where someone posted about this a few years ago. Don;t remember the specifics....

Do you have something going on in the hive that would get them out at night?  Did you just treat for mites? Do you NEED to treat for mites? Did they get into pesticides and are upset with it in the hive?
