    Two colonies in hives

    ok so I fully intend to go down to 3 or 4 hives , as I got a bit carried away this year and I wont be able to cope with this many, whilst doing a full time uni course and also rebuilding a house. I also have a nuc that I would like to sell, this years dark queen, laying well in a 7 frame box...

    Pigs anyone

    We had seven landrace x large white recently, they cost around £25 as weaners, and luckily enough we had an agreement that we could have all bruised, damaged and unsold fruit and veg from a local supplier for nothing, which kept the bags of food needed low. When they went to slaughter they all...

    Two colonies in hives

    I'm looking to sell 2 full colonies in hives (roof , brood box, omf floor, crown board). both are laying well and are this years' queens. I need to thin out as I need to spend more time on my uni studies. £250 each.

    How much spare kit do you keep?

    I've filled all my spare gear, I bought double what I set my colony limit at and I have already filled everything so that's 10 colonies instead of 5, plus the damn swarm that I accidentally received yesterday.....

    Brought a nuc box home last night after rehousing the colony in a hive, only to find a swarm in it this afternoon. Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 4 Beta

    Scam Paypal Email.

    :iagree::iagree::iagree: And the fact that the majority of those companies won't email you anyway, so anything to do with accounts, ignore it, block it and delete etc. Don't click on any links either. And never reply as your email address is then flagged up as live.

    Strange one?

    Fair enough , it makes sense I suppose, I thought I'd took enough bees with the queen and that the brood break would have helped but oh well.

    Strange one?

    I performed an AS on Friday with one of my hives, not a problem the queen was removed and put onto fresh foundation and moved to another apiary because I had run out of room, they have drawn out a couple of frames and she is laying already. The old hive, I left in the same location, with two...

    What did you do in the Apiary today?

    Performed an AS on one colony, that now takes me up to 11, and I had set a limit to 5 or 6, need to really think about the situation now before it starts running away with me.

    Actually looking at others the price may be a little ambitious so it'll be £125 with your own box Sent from my GT-I9100 using Tapatalk 2

    What did you do in the Apiary today?

    I know how you feel, I started with 4 colonies this spring and now have 10, this is after setting myself a limit of 5-6. For me its time to start drawing the line and nipping queens to reunite. I have 2 hives who are starting to get swarm fever again and I feel like just letting them get on with...
