Hi Rober, first thing I noticed was the Gibson.

Our garage/workshop resembles yours depending on how many projects we have going on at the time. Then we clean it all up and it's so nice. Then bee season happens..........

Good luck!

I had bees check out my swarm trap early last week, and then they were gone within an hour.  Two days later, scouts were back.  But they, too, left...
Those first bees may not have been mean enough to stay at your house.  You just never know about bees.   ;)

Earlier this year I had scout bees check out the box, then disappear, then two days later I had caught a swarm.  I don't know if they were the same bees or not.

Beekeeping 101 / Moldy frames - how much is too much?
« Last post by Lastfling on Yesterday at 07:59:00 pm »
I’ll be picking up two packages tomorrow and had planned on using some drawn foundation to get them off to a running start.  When I checked the foundation it was moldy to say the least.  I’ve heard the bee’s would clean them up but wondered if there was a limit to what they’d take on before looking elsewhere for a place to call home.  If it’s not a good idea to use it and or mix it it up with bare wax foundation I got enough plain to use and can recycle the frames from the other.  What say ya’ll ??  Any / all input appreciated. Thanks

They are curious.  I hope you catch a swarm!  Are you using any lemongrass oil or nasanov pheromone or old comb?
