    Re: Fleet Farm Beekeeping Supplies

    It will be interesting to see what "brand" they sell. I fear for all the honeybees that will be put in harms way without their beekeepers having a clue.

    Re: Feed Buckets

    Radar, this seems large for the circular screen in the cover of a feeder pail. I am thinking it is something like 20, 40, 100, 150 mesh ...

    Re: Wisconsin Honey Producers Waupaca, WI

    On the way into Waupaca, just stop at Fleet Farm, pick up a Green Bay Packer Sweatshirt and Cheesehead hat. You will fit right in and stay warm at the same time. :) Have a safe trip!
