Timing with requeening - Hi again, I have six mated queens arriving next week. I plan to split six strong hives using the new mated queens, I am a little confused the timing of splitting and introducing the new queen, there appears to be differing ideas from what I have read. I have all of the queens marked except one, can I split and and introduce on the same day?? and for the unmarked queen if I can't find her (I am going to look for her again the week end) how long i... http://ow.ly/2X87Qg

QUEEN LAYING UP TOP - Hey Guys My new queen that i purchased a few weeks ago is laying in the box boxes not the bottom full depth brood box. Any one know why this is happening? Do I need to get rid of the full depth box and use 2 3/4 frames boxes as my brood boxes? http://ow.ly/2X7EgP

Blank canvas radial extractor - If you had a blank canvas for the design of a commercial grade centrifuge capable of working the full range of honeys, and cost wasn't really a major consideration, given that in this case I will build it myself. What features would it have and how many frames would it spin per load? http://ow.ly/2X70Lz

something different...... - had something a little different to day, removing bits of a car out of honey, frames/boxes. a few weeks ago a transport company lost a pallet of honey off the truck onto the road and it was hit by a car. so todays fun job was sorting out all the broken frames/boxes. plastic frames turned into shrapnel. wasn't much left of some of the frames. big waste of rather good honey. http://ow.ly/2X551K

Wasps - Hi new beekeeper/member here, I have noticed a few wasps around my hive and the odd one entering it. I have installed an entrance reducer and have this evening watched my bees drag a wasp or two out of the hive. The hive is two full brood boxes and two honey supers. I want to winter them down but am nervous opening hive will attract more germans! Is there a best time of the day to do the work and is there any more I can do to help the bees apart from finding the... http://ow.ly/2X4HHz
