For once, I'm actually interested in a wearable outside of +Google Glass    #moto360  I'm really hoping to see some NFC functionality, too.

Howdy! I have a package/new hive I installed this May that was a very slow starter. The hive re-queened itself about a month ago now, and is slowly catching up, but they're only just now drawing out comb in their second deep (which has been on for almost three months, since they've had 8 of 10 frames filled for that long).

Problem is, 6 of their 10 frames in the bottom box are mostly capped honey, with a tiny bit of brood in the middle. They're not honey bound - they've had a second deep to move into for months, so I'm not sure what to do. Move the honey frames up into the second box where they're just now starting to draw it out?

When you add a new box you should move a broodless frame from the box below it into the center of the new box to encourage them to move up into the new box quickly. At this point, your colony doesn't have enough bees to take care of extra brood and they don't consider the second box their space yet, so they are clogging the brood frames in the bottom box with nectar, effectively making them congested.

My advice right now is to move 2 or three broodless frames (with nectar/honey) up and replace them with frames of sealed brood from another colony if you can (put the sealed brood right next to their existing brood, so the brood is contiguous). This will both increase their population quickly and encourage them to move up. I would place empty frames in between the honey frames in the second box, hoping the queen will move up to lay eggs in the empty frames when the workers move up to work on the nectar/honey frames.

Good luck, keep us posted.

Hi All. I started my first two hives in May this year. One seems to be doing well. They received their first honey shallow last weekend (after rapidly filling the second deep in ~2 weeks), and things seem to be cooking along there. The other hive, though...

This other hive started off the stronger of the two, and had 8/10 of their first deep filled in about 5 weeks (faster than the other hive). I added the second deep, and checked in on it two weeks later. The hive hadn't grown at all, there was spotty brood at best, and a couple of supersedure cells. I figured I'd let nature take it's course, as they seemed to be replacing the queen for a reason. Two weeks after that I checked in again. No brood, no eggs, no visible queen, but roughly the same population as before. The still haven't moved into the second deep.

Is it way too late to save these guys? If I take a frame of brood from the good hive and place it in the failing hive, and they somehow raise a new good queen, is there even enough time left in the season for them to store up for winter (I'm in Michigan)?

Hey Nick, if you have had no progress I suggest you follow through with the idea of putting a frame of young brood from the healthy hive into the weaker hive.  The hive I believed that had no Queen appears to have just raised one and now she is laying and appears healthy, etc.  It's never too late!

You absolutely MUST wear the one shoulder unitard while performing these tasks. Bonus points if you somehow involve a pennyfarthing.

My wife and I used Townsend to re-carpet most of our house, and could not have been more pleased. The first time we stopped in to see what they had available and poke around was great. The salesperson that helped us was not pushy, was up-front with pricing (it's actually printed on the walls near the samples you're looking at), and answered every question we had. Getting the estimate was similarly easy. They came out, measured, and called back the next day with pricing based on the carpets we chose. Installation was also great. The two installers and assistant completed the ~1700 sq. ft. we bought in *one day*, including our ridiculously complicated rounded upholstered stairs. Pricing was fair, service was amazing, and installation was perfect. I highly recommend these guys.

My wife and I had our wedding reception here on March 23, 2013. I can not speak highly enough of this business. The building is phenomenal, surpassed only by the incredible service staff. The food...I don't know what I can say about the food to do it justice. We have had at least ten couples tell us it was the best wedding food they have ever had. I heartily recommend River Raisin Banquet Center to anyone, for any occasion.

Clean and packed with craft brew. Pretty much everything and anything from a Michigan brewery you could want, and a lot of other craft beer too. A good liquor selection, and even some of the rarer New Holland liquor.
