Maybe she was visiting friends when some beek came by to treat with powdered sugar?
Maybe Colombian friends?
That may explain why they're so hyper...
BlueBee, I started that hive from a split in June. They just now got to the point where they had the numbers, so I put them in this with 5 empty frames. Feeder is out now.
Yes, the SHB can go through the #8 diagonally. I don't know the mechanism, but they seem to not be a problem this year. As for falling
through, no they don't. The bees chase them through.
buzzbee, I hope not. I'll have a lot of explaining to do with my neighbor. All three colonies are coming in with this stuff.
Yes Please! BeeV! All I'm seeing is ragweed.

It's a polystyrene lid. I don't like it. It was Dad's. The bottom boards and tops are warped badly. I put the top on without an inner cover and crushed about a dozen bees on the top bars. I have since put it on upside down and covered the hollow with some sheet aluminum. It's only saving grace is I can cover two 5 frame nucs at once.
