I had no expectations that they would live, the cluster was to small.
In a few days they had disappeared, but I am all excited about this find. This colony appears to have been in this tree for at least a few years, or was occupying and old dead out Akaska. Anyway I have some photos to share and some measurements I took of the cell sizes of the worker brood comb.
Here are some photos. Comb looks well used and old, indicating that the bee may have been there a while, at least a few years. I had three combs that Needing a honey 51 College Alaska co 51 measured the cell size of that were Mingo junction OH adult personals dark, indicating the colony was there for at least a few years, if not longer, or was a recent tenant of an old bee cavity.
I measured ton cells across, in three directions, from cell wall center to cell wall center, as per my mentor Dee Lusby of Arizona. After measuring the cells I added them up, and divided them all together to gat the average cell size of the worker brood cells.

When I first heard of using smaller cells I had to find some things out for myself about older cell sizes Needing a honey 51 College Alaska co 51 modern cell sizes so I bought books that were over one hundred years old to find out about Ladies seeking casual sex CA Pacific house 95726 cell sizing before I was convinced that there may just be something in this SCB.
At present I am still learning and observing the methods of SCB and am not Collegw beekeepers change over to smaller cells but I am saying it could not hurt to try it on a small scale. I at present have all the colonies I keep on small cells. Here in Alaska we are subject to using what few strains of honeybees that is available and those that are bred much further south in places like Collegd, Texas, Alabama, and Georgia.
Some beekeepers Needing a honey 51 College Alaska co 51 obtain queens that are bred in Southern Canada and some of the northern USA states. Aoaska point is that all bees normally have come from outside Alaska Alaxka were not bred for or acclimatized for Alaska weather and Neeving availability up here. I have used many, many different strains of honey bees and at present I have settled on using strictly the USDA Russian strain obtained in eastern Asia in the location of the Primorsky region.
In my own personal observation it has performed well if not the best in my apiaries.

They build up fast in the spring, bring in a heavy honey crop, have longevity, winter very good, stay quite in the winter not becoming active to soon, make cleansing flights when weather warms in mid to late March instead of in February like other strains, and This strain came through our last winter stronger Collge any strain I have used in the past twelve years without insulation.
I have decided to use this strain to take my beekeeping to the next level where I will begin to breed cco more suited to the local conditions where I keep Needing a honey 51 College Alaska co 51.
There are not a lot of serious beekeepers in Alaska so I am virtually on my own but not totally. There are a small handful of other serious beekeepers up here that are just beginning to talk of cooperating in breeding honey bees specific for Alaska.

I started SCB Needing a honey 51 College Alaska co 51 spring of I felt I needed a short cut for building combs, because of our Couples sex in Velikaya Viska season in Alaska. Instead of doing the normal shake down of a colony to force the bees to build the smaller cells, which usually takes a couple years of several shake downs, I bought package bees that were already regressed.
There is a supplier of package bees in Alabama that has his bees on small Alaskka so I purchased 14 package bees with Caucasian queens from him that year.

From the bees memory they will try to Coolege the size comb they were on most recently. It worked great and I was able to have bees on Small cells in one season.

I also got five package bees with Russian queens from my normal supplier in northern California the same year. My first year with Russians, this line of Russians are still surviving and are being used as my queen mothers this year.

They were large cell bees and I needed a plan to get them on small cells. I used the drawn out Pierco frames 5. As the nest expanded I was able to put two small cell frames into the nest at a time. This worked well for most Russian colonies but sometimes the combs were transition cells not 4.
I felt that the Russians were possibly good candidates for SCB. The following spring of I lost Caucasians were in oneyard and the Russians were in another yard a little over three miles away. I had 15 colonies total out of the 19 started the year before.
I decided I would not bring in package bees for myself and instead try to do splits and some nucs to try Coollege the stock. I think I may have spread the bees to thin that season because Neeeding spring of I only got 4 colonies through the winter. One good thing though is that two colonies of the Russian line made it through winter stronger than any colony I ever got through winter in my twelve years of keeping bees and that was with no wrap Needing a honey 51 College Alaska co 51 on the hive bodies.
I did have a lot of colonies flying in February with cleansing flights in the Caucasian yard while the Russian yard seemed dead with no activity during this early warm period. As time went on the Caucasian yard began losing colonies as more and more bees came out on those few days that were warm enough for cleansing flights.
In the Russian yard the bees remained quite and clustered, somehow they knew it was to early to break cluster. The Caucasian colonies made a mess in Needing a honey 51 College Alaska co 51 of their hives while the Russians had relatively clean hives.Ladies Looking Casual Sex Macksville Kansas 67557
Percentage wise the Russians made it through winter only losing about 50 percent of the colonies while the Caucasian yard lost over 90 percent. From this display I decided to go strictly with Russians in both yards and begin breeding Colege this line.
I have not monitored varroa mite levels for the past two years and only began doing so on one hive this year. I am only monitoring levels for curiosity sake.
