  1. I inspected my hive today and found some red in some of the cells. I noticed a bee with red pollen on it's legs so I'm assuming this is normal....but would have thought it should all be yellow. Can someone confirm if red pollen is ok? I didn't take a photo. Probably 6 red cells sprinkled about. I've never noticed it before today. I have had bayvarol strips in the hive for 6 weeks. I should have removed them today but didn't check the dates. The box says 6-8 weeks. Will remove them in 2 weeks time. I only have one hive. I am wondering about the honey bein
  2. Hi. I am in the process of assembling boxes & frames to begin my new beekeeping adventure. I live in Belmont, Lower Hutt. Could someone plez let me know where i can get my boxes hot-dipped in paraffin wax, and what might be the cost for this service per box? Many thanks in advance.
  3. Hey guys. I have a bunch of bees gathering at the front of the hive. About 2 cups worth. They have been for a week or so, but there are a lot more today. Any advice on what is happening here?
  4. I was going to requeen my hives this coming week. I opened all three to have a last check and found 2 to be queenless (they had queens last weekend). I triple checked and am confident there is no queen. One had a recently-capped cell (so may have swarmed, but their numbers didn't seem any lower) and the other had 10+ cells with various stages of growth, none capped. Both had eggs eggs, so there had been a queen there recently and it was a week since I'd last looked so don't think it was my doing. Both had very tatty queens that I wouldn't have thought were able to fly. I closed up th
  5. Hi Team i am based in Southland. I am trying to find a bee nuc that i can buy please. does anyone have any ideas or suggestion? or know anyone?
  6. Hello All Just looking for some advice/feedback regarding autumn splits. Finding it hard to find NZ information regarding splitting a hive at this time of year. Is it a good option to do at this time of year? Have extracted my honey and am currently running 1 hive, 2 full depth boxes on hive. Lower one has brood and top one is stored honey. Is it an option to split the hive by pulling out some brood and honey and putting into a Nuc box? Introducing a queen or queen cell into the nuc and letting them winter in this? Am I able to buy a fertilized queen
  7. When we bought our first hive-ware from a retiring keeper four years ago, and then attracted a swarm to put in a box from the collection, two of these pictured bases came with it. With experience has come curiosity, and we dug the bases out and cleaned up the best one. It appears to be a pollen trapping device with mesh ventilation openings and a variable entry set-up to permit free entry or entry through the pollen stripper and a minimal size entry option via the plastic tubes in the corners. The pollen falls into the slide-out tray shown, well, slid out. Can members recall these bases?
