Hello Jerrold, did you find homes for all your virgin queens?

Putting on your wires tight is OK in this freezing cold weather(sub 30F here) put when working in hot weather remember the wires will tighten up when cold weather comes. In either case, there really is no requirement to make your wires so tight they break the insulators.

Thanks for commenting on my honey super question. We are going to continue to feed them 1:1 and leave all capped honey for them. That was our initial plan and we are sticking with it! Is a 2:1 ratio 2 parts sugar to 1 part water? How do you feed fondant in the winter? We were going to try a thick sugar syrup on a paper plate and place them in the hive over winter. Are these the same ideas?

Thanks,
Michelle

Thank you Bruce for the advice. I saw a local had the same problem as us (his was 14 days w/o capped brood) and a few people told him he either had a failing queen or virgin queen who never came back. They recommended purchasing another queen.

We will wait another week and I'll be back with an update!
