Been away from the web but not the bees, been splitting and growing.

Hard to split, grow, be successful, and keep up with the web.

AS Michael mentioned,  as long as drawn running 9 frames in the honey is good option. I  run 8 in them and have yet to see a downside

As long as you have drawn comb it works fine.  It's not necessary, but it doesn't hurt.

 Couldn?t the o ring be replaced?

Alarm pheromone is iso-pentyl acetate.  Artificial banana flavor is iso-pentyl acetate.  The main part of the smell of an actual banana is iso-pentyl acetate.  If most bees went crazy when smelling it, we would be in trouble every time a bee gave off any.  Luckily only the F1 crosses of AHB seem to do that lately.

I do foundationless frames and my idea was to complete my harvest early July then start feeding 1:2. I leave them enough honey for the year and use crush and strain so there's no stickies really. There's not often a fall harvest, at least I've never seen sufficient flow at my apiary to warrant it. I was hoping by feeding them 1:2 or 1:1 they'd be motivated to build comb. They might store some of it which would be fine, I could then pull alittle more honey come fall perhaps.

GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Apiguard with supers on
« Last post by tarjoadi on Today at 01:13:31 am »
Hi everyone,

Last year in autumn I done few Apiguard treatments and at the end was not able to find a tray in one of the hives. I was able to find it recently, long after I placed the supers which now are full with honey. I know that is not indicated to have supers on during an Apiguard treatment, but considering the treatment was last year in autumn, can I still use the honey?

Please let me know your suggestions.

Thank you
