    Re: My Bees died over the winter :(

    We were below zero for too long. The bees were all head first in the cells, 2 inches from a new patch of honey.

    My wife and I are planning a trip to New England this fall. We would like to time it so we can be there to see the fall colors.

    Can anybody recommend what dates would be good for this?

    Re: Hutterite beekeepers and treatment?

    What was the name of the documentary? I have a few Hutterite friends, but they don't keep bees. Other colonies in the area do, so I'll try and find out.

    Re: Using a Heat Gun for Uncapping;
