I heard or read a while back that someone was supose to come out with a formic acid strip to use instead of the pads. does anyone know anything about it? Thanks,
Yep, even though I don't gear up, if you have a hot hive you need to, and requeen it asap. We do the same thing with our cattle, if I can't work around them with out having to look over my shoulder,...
I don't where any gear, if i get stung its usually on the finger or wrist. I usually work them on nice days, and on cloudy days it's pretty easy to tell if its not a good idea to go in them. I have...
It's the same with Ethanol, years ago when it was produced in the back yard you could run an engine better and longer than on gas, now with all the stuff they make the ethanol producers do to it,...
It's not to late, just have to wait until things die down a little and you should be able to get some shipped in as long as it dosen't get to hot.
Dennis Lohman sold OWC. Bought some three years ago. They did fine for me the second year, not worth a darn the first, they seem to make the winter just fine too. I've been using them for crosses...
Why do we always look at the calender, we deal with averages, and this year is a early year. Take advantage of the nice spring and make bees and honey. This has been a great spring up here, and if...
If your friend has had bees there with no problem then I guess that there must not be a problem. Have you asked what they are spraying? Or are you just assuming that everything that comes out the...
I'm in the UP, so if anyone is going down from NE Wisconsin, Marinette/Menominee area, I'd be interested in putting an order together if your headed down to get packages.
news paper or paper towel between the two outside piles works great for me. I like Michael Bushs idea with putting the whole bag in, would think it would work great.
This far north where I'm at the bees chew right through the paper and up into the sugar. I think I may of lost one hive that had the loose sugar above them cave in on top of the bees. Not sure if...
Ain't that the truth. :)
I have cattle on feed and bees, and there is no problem with either of them.
As long as it hasn't started to ferment, its ok.
I did that once with a semi load of hay, too about 6 weeks, but when there was enough $$ in their account I ran the check through.
Does he have a web site or catalog?
I've posted before about cedar glenn, unless you can pick up the bee yourself, stay away from them. I hope you can get your scam resolved.
Burning frames? Not needed for SHB. Next time just stick the frames in the freezer for a few days, then take them out and after thawing take a hose and rinse them out. That way at least you'll...
Yes!! or hold the check until your ready to ship.
Communication is the biggest part of what's going on. I bought two packages in 08 from long creek, was told they couldn't ship until the spring of 09. Got my two packages this spring with no...
Not all farmers spraying are applying insecticides, and if a crop is in bloom such as a seed crop like alfalfa, it might be something as simple as bt. We hit our orchard with a product to thin the...
I don't where a suit, gloves or veil. My 10 year old son works them right with me the same way with no problem, now my second oldest son can't work them with out getting nailed by the bees when...
