  3. Re: bees mixed with honey to be crushed and stained

    During robbing times, I place supers and or frames inside these heavy duty Brute containers. Keeps all the bees off as your pulling honey. You can put two supers inside one container.20698

    Re: bottling honey

    You want foam in jars. All my retail customers love it. One retailer even instagrammed foam in one of my jars and she sold a case in two days.

    Ollie,

    That's the third one, (most healthy) of the three that you have not seen on BeeSource. I am watering at the risk of going to jail because of the drought.

    Re: All Mediums: Was Brother Adam wrong?

    A swarm moved in underneath one of my strong hives. Apparently swarms like screen bottom boards. I have to remove it like you would a cutout.

    Re: All Mediums: Was Brother Adam wrong?

    I've never taken honey out of the bottom brood box. They always seem to use it. The only honey I've ever seen in a bottom brood box is in the number 1 and number 10 frame so who cares. If he's just a...

    Re: All Mediums: Was Brother Adam wrong?

    Although I use all mediums now, I think bees do better with deep brood boxes. I think they like the extra room. I don't think honey super size matters that much.
