I was wondering if you know what may have happened to the honey that was entered in the State Fair. We won 2nd place, but forgot to pick up the honey yesterday. Do you know what may have happened to it?

Hi Megan,


My mom and I are 1st time beekeepers and have a top bar hive. We are noticing a few things and want to discuss these things with a pro. This is why I am writing you. Is it possible to talk on the phone or for you to come up to see our hive?

This is what we are experiencing:

1) the 1st few combs at the front of the hive are now completely empty.

2) we have seen what we think is a queen cell. It's empty, waiting for implantation. We will look at it again tomorrow morning and see what is happening. It is fresh, and white, brand new.

3) We have about 8 combs with partial honey, partial brood.

4) We have some cells that have baby bee larvae by are not "capped" off. Is this normal? I haven't seen this previously.


Thank you for your time,

Hi Megan,

I'm wondering if you still have nuc hives avail?  I ordered one from a company that wasn't able to supply this year.  I'm hoping it's not too late to get one from you.  I have a top-bar hive.  If you have one available, what would be your cost?  (Tried to call your phone number, but your mailbox is full.)  :-)

Oops... I mean "the cutting diagram must be one of Les C.'s"... not TJ's...

Thanks Megan, for the time frame on the split... and your thots on how unwieldy nucs can be.

I also will incoporate your suggestion (at Pollinator Awareness Day) on making top bars Lang sized to make for easy trades between the two styles.  It makes a lot of sense to me.

 I DID find a "cutting diagram" for a 1"X10"X14' TB somewhere on the net.. and printed it out this time... it must be one from TJ because of the "quarter round cleat's nailed to the top bars".. he's the only one that I've seen that does that.. I can figure out the math to reduce the sizes to Nuc's and smaller hive sizes, so no problems there..  


Thanks So Much for taking the time to answer my questions.. I know how busy you must be at this time of year..


Take Care,

Megan...   Thank You for putting on an Entertaining and Enlightening Meeting This Evening.  I enjoyed it greatly. I'm wondering if I missed a point, or if it wasn't asked...    Q: When you do a division or split, move the NUC away, and THEN bring it back.. is there a rule-of-thumb as to how long to keep the two hives separated??? Also, and this one's driving me nuts.. I could have sworn that I saw on the Beeks site (with TJ's plans?) a cutting diagram using a 1"X12" of X" length to make small TB "Traps" (seems like I remember they were 5 bars) that you'd hang in a tree, for example, to coax feral bees to take up residence, and could also be used as NUCs.. If you're aware of where that is... or.. something like that, could you please point me to where it is!!! Thank You!!!

Take Care,
