  1. Wintering down and some progress checks and found 2 hives with capped Queens. No drones about so tired speak of so either they know something I don't or a tad confused. Have been caught out a bit and lost a couple to robbing. Had entrances about quarter open as they were finding a bit of nectar somewhere, cold snap hits and bang. Varroa counts were good so don't suspect that so won't do that again. All down to a small gap now
  2. Well bit of a disappointing result from asure quality. First email was of picture and number and location. Reply was it's probably a super dump and can you supply number so he can contact and see if a registered site. I resent number on boxes and shared my concerns about robbing and what was the policy. Reply was looks like empty supers. Resent blow Cleary showing exposed frames and restated strong smell of honey and cloud of bees. So will wait and see. But if this is what is expected when someone raises concerns then it's no wonder we have an issue
  3. In a pretty sad state. Would have to be a bit desperate to pinch them
  4. Yep sorry kind of hijacked the March diary. But interesting as I would of put mine back on but reading this I like the idea of a quick boost for them in spring. When are people changing older Queens? Before winter or in the spring
  5. Message said Marco no longer works for a sure and to contact Tony roper
  6. Have sent Marco an email of roughly where just can't do picture for him yet. Looks like 250plus 3/4 boxes. Turns out Marco no longer on the job
  7. Turns out my phone has a paint function to blur it out. Just having issues with android to share it Any advice
  8. Moderators?? Il report it when I get back to my laptop
  9. Could go old school and print it off and cut a piece of paper to blank it
  10. I'm a simple man and technology evades me james
  11. What realistically can you report that for unless you know matter of fact that disease is present
  12. I got detoured down a back road 2 days a and saw a site the gave me the chills. A mountain of supers sitting on the side of the road with clouds of bees surrounding it. Some boxes had a side broken off and wide open I could smell the honey from in my car. Got a picture but it will show beekeepers number so moderators may not be impressed???
