MT Bee Girl, sorry aboit hijacking your string.

How old is this place, which brings the next question -- what kind of insulation?  When inspecting, have your husband check that insulation.  It could be bad stuff, particularly in an older structure.   Remember, too, you'll be wearing a bee suit and two feet could get real tight and there could be things to get snagged on.

Lol ok thanks for the discussion on contacts.

What about weather wise. It's going to be in the low 50's and dreary outside so they'll most likely be inside. Will they be more aggressive? The home owner also talked about a 2' crawl space filled with insulation I'd access them through which opens up towards the gable end. This has me baffled after thinking about it. From my experience, there are rafters up there and should be pretty open. I'm leaning towards doing a pre inpection like John mentioned to see what's really going on and how much space I'll have. I mean, I do need room to move and have room for my equipment...i don't THINK I'm claustrophobic...it just sounds tight.  lol

I think that's a good idea about the extra $100 like iddee said.

Jim, I am going to guess that if he has a lot of nectar rolling in there are drones present.

If 50% of my two children miss school on a given day it is no big deal. If 50% of all the children at a school miss on a given day it is a big deal.

If 50% of my two bee hives die I am the only one that cares.  If 50% of the commercial beeks hives die it is a big deal and it is the news papers and every one cares.

It all depends on what side of the fence you are on.

I wish.  Lots of money in being on boards, but I retired 26 years ago and want no part of any of that.  After I retired, I became a Master Gardener and then added beekeeping to my "work" load and those things and travelling keep me going..

You do realize in some cases this whole process could take six weeks. Do you even know if you had your drone bees that were of the age to mate ?
This may help you next time you ttry to raiser Queen. One thing to remember drones are not ready to mate for about the first five to seven days of their life

Two reasons I don't wear a veil.
I sweat even in the winter. Don't need another layer.
I don't get stung much, and it's just nicer to work without one.
Here's a video of my youngest daughter quite a few years ago, and yes I titled the video "Child Abuse" figured I'd get a rise out of somebody.
