Ventilation

This a.m. I found one hive with three mounds of bees clustered & hanging under platform entrance. 1st thought––bearding; 2nd thought––swarm, but why 3 groups? This hive has solid bottom board. I deduced it was ventilation issue. I propped the lid with small stone. By 4 p.m., the mounds had moved to one side forming one mound (down from 3), and it appears as if the # of bees has diminished. Can I safely keep the lid propped open through the night and not fear for their wellbeing?See More

Pesticides

Hi Everyone,  I thought I should share this. The bees were acting drunk today and many crawling out of the hive. When I went out front to find that some company has sprayed pesticides in the parks surrounding the house. I've fired off a letter to the mayor. The company that did it is called The Brickman Group-  I left them a message asking for the pesticide name. I'm further south-  Miami Lakes.  Has anyone had any experience with towns doing this and how to handle it? See More
