Kathy, I'm glad you had the breath to take care of that. I couldn't.

Kathy, I'm glad you had the breath to take care of that. I couldn't.
OK I will try an explain myself a bit better.
Forget the swarm, that has long gone.
The reason for the topic question is because I thought I may have seen some new capped brood.
I may just have another look in a couple of days and take some pics and post them on here.

says you moved queen cells up into the top box. At the time of reading that I should of replied.
I'm not sure what your thinking was in that but it's done now.
The queen Cells I moved were left in the brood box for several days before I moved them and it was well after a couple of them had hatched so time for a maiden queen to hatch.

As for another hive, I do not, that would of made my problem a lot easier.

I am afraid to tell you in four weeks the hive is queenless no matter what happened.  This is me now, I would take the honey and dump the hive.
Thanks for the advice but I will wait awhile longer before I get that drastic, it has been an ordinary Spring here so far, just about rains every other day, or seems like it.

You read so much conflicting information on bee forums and it can get very confusing sometimes for a newbie.

Anyway we never stop learning and I will get the hang of this beekeeping, I don't give up that easy, I am a farmer  :grin:

Thanks Ando and Ace

I do like what Obama has done in his term as president.  He took over after a trigger happy alcoholic imbecile and brought the intelligence of the presidency up ten fold.  He, Obama, was handed an economy the likes of the great depression and dug us out.  He saw a basic need for health insurance for a population that lost their jobs (THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN).  Unfortunately, he was stonewalled by congress on everything that he thought the country needed and that always means you have to make concessions with the devil.

I don't think Hillary is as intelligent as Obama but I know she is quite intelligent and has a rapport with leaders all over the globe.  The other moron is a pea brain (Biggly) and couldn't be a friend to a hooker, although he has married a couple.  Hillary is not my first choice but she is the only choice this term.

I think you make these posts just to yank chains.   :wink:

Trigger happy (the rest no worth comment):  We are deployed and fighting in more places now, than when Bush was president.  Obamas precipitous withdrawal from Iraq, handed ISIS a base of operation they had not had, and we are now back there taking care of what should never have happened.  If the intelligent one had listened to his experienced military advisors, we would not be back there fixing his mess.

Recessions and depressions happen.  Clinton handed Bush a bad economy too and UBL to sweeten the deal.  I don't remember Bush ever whining about the economy or the fact that Clinton failed to deal with UBL when he could have.  As for recover, if we are having one, and economists debate that, it is an extremely weak recovery.  We are predicted to go back into recession by next year and there is no wiggle room left for doing things like lowering interest rates.  The next one will be worse.  Is that Obamas fault?  Not really, but a large part of the weak recovery can be laid on him and it includes Obama care. 

Obama care.  Failure.  A few people have gotten insurance.  All of us have seen our insurance go up.  Many could not keep what they had and have ended up paying more for less.  Insurance companies are pulling out of it.  States are shutting down exchanges.  I can't think of any federal program in my lifetime that has been a bigger failure.

Stonewalled by congress:  How about some examples of that?  Not only has congress not been able to stop what he's doing, he has ignored the courts.  Meanwhile, he has been allowing 1000s of illegals to stay, 1000s of "refugees" to come here, has blocked things like drilling on federal lands and the pipeline from Canada.  He has had appointed military leaders that further his social agenda to the detriment of the forces.  Seems to me, he's been pretty successful in his fundamental change of the country.

Meanwhile, Hillary has failed at everything she has attempted in government, except maybe as senator where she did next to nothing.  The world is less safe because of Obama and Hillary.  The world likes and respects us less because of them.  We are in more conflicts and there are more conflicts around the world.  Both China and Russia are saber rattling, and Russia is taking action not only to take over other countries, but has threatened us.  They now have their sights on Finland. 

There is not one thing that Hillary has been involved in as a private citizen, or public, that has not been corrupt.  Her law firm dealings, investments, her time as 1st lady, the foundation, the server and emails, the money she has taken from the people she claims to want to rein in.........you name it and it has been corrupt.  I am not a Trump fan either, but Hillary is the textbook definition of sociopath, from the way she conducts business, to the way she treats those around her.

Well I might not raise the sweet potato beds but just outline them off. The soil itself is pretty poor. Now my other garden spot is fantastic soil but it just to be the spot that cows were fed out for over 30 years and I add manure to it every year.

I am not sure what my crop will look like next year either. I am highly curious. I am in a field and there is lots of clover so it will have that going for it and might make it be a lighter honey but my fruit trees often break before the clover big time so perhaps they will add some unique twists to it.

Sourwood honey is my favorite.

I grew up in southeast Tennessee right above the north Georgia mountains.  I never appreciated local honey (mainly sourwood) until I moved away from home.  Now I get a pint jar from my mom for Christmas.  Best present each year.

I have gravitated towards the darker honey's recently.  Not sure what my first crop will be next year.  Although I am 99.9% certain that it won't be sourwood, I sure am looking forward to it.

I would like to try some lavender honey one day and other exotic honey. I tend to buy honey from places I visit though. I have to try this sourwood honey one day.
The fact that an individual can sell a gun to an individual is what they are really referring to

All 3 west coast states have made private sales against the law along with gifts.  CA has the most repressive laws.  OR is basically ignoring it because the gun shops don't want to be involved.  WA is somewhere in the middle.  It sucks.  CA is so bad you can't loan a gun to a friend for target practice even if you are right there.

You have a right
...No, all the things you listed are privileges given by states and licenced to bring money into states.  Your real rights are protected, not given, by the constitution.  By definition, a right requires no permission.

Following your line of logic, you could be required to be licenced to speak publicly or post on the internet.  You could be required to register the type of church you choose to attend, or secure prior permission to attend group activities.  We all know of people and places that are up to no good, and for the order of society and the safety of the people, it makes sense to have a better idea of what people are up to.

Freedom is messy and sometimes dangerous business.  The other option is for the government to keep everyone safe by controlling everything.  They can do a pretty good job of it.  You didn't have a lot of riots, shootings, etc. in E. Germany, the USSR, or even Communist China.  When something like that did happen, like the mass killing by knife in China, the government is there to swoop in and make sure it doesn't happen again...although the methods they use are a bit harsh...but hey, everyone ends up safe.
