    bees with white stripes

    I've just been checking on the bees. There seems to be quite a number of them coming in and out with white strips on the back of their heads. I fairly certain that it's pollen. Can anybody tell me (or have a guess) at what type it is?

    petrol to drive swarm from roof??

    just a quicky. dont forget petrol vapours (which the bees smell) are heavier than air and flow down and out. I personaly wouldn't use petrol, people under estimate how dangerous it is. (I work with it).

    Bees on crown board - silly ?

    It seems like the same old thing here, ask 4 beekeepers a question and you'll get 6 answers. Saying that, I do agree with Rab, because if you put mesh over the hole in the cb, the bees will propolis it up (that speaks volumes to me)...

    Wintering with a super

    sorry Oliver, Im new to this too. but won't all the bees including the queen cluster in the warmest part of the hive and if thats in a super on top of the bb then any brood would be left in the bb at the bottom?

    Wintering with a super

    or they will all go into the super with the queen and the brood will be left to die
