GREETINGS/TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF / Hello from Athens and London
« Last post by beenotes on August 26, 2016, 10:07:57 AM »
Hi my name is Vicki and I work with beenotes, a startup of beekeepers and researchers working on an application for data keeping through voice. Maya is our artificial intelligence girl (sort of like Siri from IOS) that communicates with the beekeeper during his hive inspection and stores his data for further analysis.
Always looking to learn more from beekeeping enthusiasts!

   At looks like the original question is in the title of the Poll.
 
 I believe this is so you can put down your preferred way of handling this problem.
No, this is a poll that you can vote for option 1 or 2.  If you do not get the hive to convert to a queen right state it is a failure.  Please don't rewrite the poll.  Thank you.

Thank you for your clarification.

This won't be much help but I remember reading this a few years ago. Take a bale of barley hay, oats hay, or wheat hay - I wish I knew which one. Anyway as it decomposes it releases something in the water that's toxic to algae but won't harm the fish. Maybe www.gardensalive.com website will have it on there, or they may could answer your question.

Well turns out someone we know just bought a huge acreage in Bulla so might check that out especially as it's not too far from where I currently live so would be quite close. Just not sure what flowers around Bulla.

   This one takes very little time. Just shake out in front of a queen right hive.Put your extra equipment in storage or redistribute  throughout your other hives you have. Success rate hundred percent along with very little time. :wink:

Most newbies think there is only one laying worker that has replaced the queen and do not realize that laying workers exist in a queen right hive. 

The subject of Laying Workers seems to be yet another debatable area of beekeeping.  There appears to be two competing views: some authorities suggest that LW exist at all times, and that workers remove their eggs.  The other view is that LW will not exist until the colony becomes queenless (and thus brood-less), as the development of their ovaries is suppressed until that time.

For a short while now I've been using a Joseph Clemens Queenless Hive, a system which relies on a colony maintaining a continuously Queenless status, and thus completely free of any Laying Workers - the presence of which would sabotage that Queenless status just as any genuine Queen would. Using this system requires that open brood be regularly introduced in order to prevent the development of Laying Workers, and thus supports the view that LW won't exist as long as open brood (emitting Brood Pheromone) is present.

I start rehab tues. waiting and shaking at the agony of recovery.
