    Re: Wintering Nucs - When to start feeding?

    I have an additional question. If one was to start feeding trying to get comb drawn out, would you feed 1:1, or 2:1?

    Re: What Have You Learned This Season?

    I learned all kinds of things as this is my first year, but still feel like I know nothing.

    Most notably: Try really hard to not get stung in the face.

    Re: Organic honey?

    Doesn't seem possible. I think a lot of people will say that you can't label your honey as organic, but you can label it as no chemicals used in hive.

    Re: beekeepers in nova scotia

    Everywhere says to start with 2 colonies so you can compare them. From my very limited experience, all of mine are wildly different. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    I have a top feeder, and I had it on with the inner cover above it (so when I took it off, the bees couldn't get in easily).

    The top feeder is this type:
