    Re: Bulk quart and pint plastic jars

    I can't help you but I'd like to try to persuade you to stay with glass. Quart and pint jars are great multipurpose jars. Not only are they recyclable but there reusable. Also keep in mind if the...
  3. Re: Bees are rather frenetic in package installed last Wednesday

    Give it some time, they'll settle down and get into a grove. Are the blackberries blooming?

  5. Re: How do you preserve sugar syrup solution?

    Thank you Roland. Looks like I need a lesson or two in chemistry.

    I was talking to a gal at Lebermuth and she was telling me they tried running Honey Bee Healthy through a machine they have to...
  6. Re: How do you preserve sugar syrup solution?

    I read somewhere about feeding thymol to kill mites. Would this amount work or does it need to be stronger? Thymol solution? I have thymol crystal that I use after I melt it down. What is the...
  7. Re: Bees are rather frenetic in package installed last Wednesday

    The 15th or the 22nd?

    If it's the 15th then it doesnt sound right to me. I'd really be surprised if that queen is any good. I wouldn't wait to open it up and have a look and call your supplier...

    Re: Lots of swarms

    I've heard bees will swarm to free them selves of mites. Do you think this might be the case? Maybe to many mites in the hive.
  9. Re: rookie: install on a windy day or wait?

    Looks like your going to be getting some great weather starting tomorrow. You can hold them in the garage or some place cool and dry till then. It sure wouldn't hurt to make up some sugar syrup to...

    Re: Swarm commander: Does It Really Work?

    That's really interesting! How long have they been there? What have they been able to do with the moths and larvae? How does the hives look now?
  11. Re: What am I doing wrong? Why can't I get the bees to make honey.

    Some are drawn and some are not. I pulled some of the excluders off today and willl do the same with the others tomorrow. A couple of the hives did start using the top entrance so for those I just...
  12. Re: requeening / making splits on 4-way pallets

    So how did it go? I made up 32 about 20 days ago and haven't had a chance to check them. I laid mine out with about 10' between them and off set them in a zig zag pattern.
  13. Re: How do you preserve sugar syrup solution?

    Hi Roland. So what would that equal per gallon or better yet for 275 gallons?
  14. Re: What am I doing wrong? Why can't I get the bees to make honey.

    Thanks Ray.

    If I'm right then we're in a pretty good flow right now. I also think it'll get better as it heats up. Am I right? If we don't get any more rain today then I'll go around and pull...
  15. Re: What am I doing wrong? Why can't I get the bees to make honey.

    Good suggestion. Thank you. The excluders are coming off unless someone can talk me out of it.
  18. What am I doing wrong? Why can't I get the bees to make honey.

    I agree. I bought some from a beekeeper here close by that had a friend bring him a barrel from N. Dakota. Great honey!
  20. Re: I'm starting to think that black plastic frames and queen excluders are from sata

    I'm at a loss, it seems I just can't catch a break.

    Re: Other uses for poor tasting honey?

    It sounds to me like you got into some orange blossom honey. It has a real floral taste to it in my experience. I picked up some comb honey from a guy down around the Fresno area that was from...
