    Re: Help! i'm suffering

    Re: Spacers for migratory covers

    I put a bit of a stick under my tops. This gives about a 1/4" or so gap.

    Re: honey bound? What to do?

    I use filter screens that fit on top of 5 gallon buckets. I got them from a Bee Supply online. All three were about 15$. I filter down to 200 microns.

    I have found much the same thing. The more I learn the more I enjoy the bees. And I regret not starting sooner.

    Re: Worms

    Re: Bee Stings for treating Migraines

    Does she feel like it is helping? My SIL was involved in a bee attack as a young girl and ended up in the hospital. So stinging is not an option. But she is willing to try a salve or tincture.
