So many questions from the newbeek

18 May

More for my own reference than anything else, here’s a brain dump of questions I have 3 weeks into beekeeping:

  • For the summer, should we remove the bottom board leaving only a screened bottom?
  • Do drones buzz louder than worker bees?
  • Is it possible that workers built a supercedure cell but didn’t move an egg into it?
  • Do bees like cacti? They’re not on most lists of bee-friendly garden plants, but in the Southwest we’ve plenty.

If any of you bee sages out there have answers, I’m all ears.
