Annette...if you aren't in a good forage area.....why would someone drop 150 hives on a property adjacent to you?

They are in the process of sorting out now. Now that I have seen the superceedure and that the new queen is in and appears to have been mated (basing this on her movement pattern and the size of her abdomen) I am going to let them go for 7-10 days before I peek in again and see where that gets us. The colony while active has slowed considerably during transition but I think that was a case of the original queen starting out strong and then having her laying falter some which is why they superceded her. Who knows....only the bees.

I am kicking myself for starting with only one hive and not having a second one to compare progress to but it is what it is. and I will make it work.

Thanks for the responses guys.

I have not yet read all the posts but I can't seem to get past the idea that you consider anything above the freezing point of water cold. Good grief... My poor girls have to hold it for months on end. Do you even have winter? Last February the average temperature for Syracuse was 11.8F for those of you that use the metric system that is -11.22C. I will admit that last winter was the coldest on record but it is not uncommon to have months on end below freezing.

Well... On a positive note if your bees ever raise a new queen there should be plenty of drones to mate with.

I think of things I did as a kid. Many are illegal now. Why? Because I might get hurt. I went on a family trip from NY to Florida where my sister and I rode in the back of a pickup truck. It was great we could make all the noise we wanted. It didn't bother our parents at all. Now that is too dangerous. We need to be protected from ourselves. When my uncle lived between Reno an Carson City I went on a ski trip and he made a great comment about moving to Nevada. He said "in NY it wasn't bad enough that the government was involved in all sorts of things it had no business doing but worse than that the people think the government should do all of these things and more." I have a T shirt that says "if you can't trust people with freedom how can you trust people with power?" I don't trust people with power... But then... I do trust people with freedom.
