When the pollen flow is going good the bees will prefer the fresh pollen over the patties. At that point I return all patties to the freezer for storage.  -Mike

It looks good. But I am not sure about the QE. Every shaker box I have seen on videos looked like it was wide open. Not sure how they keep the queens out. I think that most of the bees will be on top of the excluder and not go through it. Watch your bees and see how hard they have to work to get through it. Maybe someone on here that has done it will pipe up with the answer.


Check the link below. This is where I'm getting the queen excluder from. I'm using this method to gather nurse bees and isolate the queen. Foragers just fly back home.

Thanks Vance, these patties seem to stay moist very well, so I think I will see if I can get them used up. I think that may be better than trying to store them.

My beekeeping "partners" (uncle and brother) and I drove down to Jesup, GA this past Wednesday and picked up 10 three lb packages of some lovely Italians (April 16 2014)! When we got back up to Thomson we began the hiving of these packages and one was sold to a "newbee" and we helped put them into his hive.. 4 packages went to a food plot hidden back in the woods. 2 packages went into two Langs (we build all our own equipment except frames and foundation) on an old man's property who has let us keep a Michael Bush KTB hive out there for over a year. 2 packages also went to hives that we've placed on my boss' property (ironically I work for an Extermination company) and one more went back on the property with the four packages in the food plot--only this last one was hived into another Bush KTB hive!

That, coupled with 4 hives that survived through the winter, puts us up to 13 hives! Next Saturday we'll be traveling to Comer, GA, to pick up 4 or 5 nucs from Mrs. Jennifer Berry.. ALSO I called a man named "Greg" at Z's bees in California and have two Cordovan Italian queens coming so I can give them a fair shake in some hives that need re-queening or splitting..

Anyone have any dealin's with Cordovan queens/bees? Pros and cons, please?

Just paint me excited!   [=!!!

My uncle, brother, and I recently purchased property by a creek. Would these trees be ok to plant beside the creek? I believe we have some black gum already growing out there. Maybe even some tupelo (which, isn't that black gum?).

Welcome Barry. Would love to hear as you go along about the differences you experience between keeping bees up North and down South.

They started the trapezoid so the goalies couldn't become a 3rd defence.   I always thought it had the potential to increase injuries with the races to the pucks in the corners.   Wings really looked good last night.  Bet the bruins didn't see that one coming

Not all pollen patties are created equal.  The ones I used to buy and then later made myself would dry out and the bees would stop taking them when something better became available.  The ones I buy now from Global Patties seem to get consumed as long as their is brood in the colony and they are not dried out and they take a long long time to dry out.
