    Re: Round black feeders

    I ended up going with half gallon mason jars. Since I'm running almost all 5 frame hives these days I figured out I can put 3 half gallon jars inside an empty 5 frame hive body on top of the hive....

    Eastern Kentucky honey season

    I was wondering when the main honey season starts in Eastern Kentucky. I have a friend who has some land I think around Whitesburg and he says the bees would do good down there. Is this area pretty...

    Re: Round black feeders

    Yep, that's it. Thank you. I was going to start some nucs in the spring and was thinking I could drill a hole in the migratory lid and put this feeder in and that would keep it from blowing away....

    Round black feeders

    Is anyone still selling the feeders that look like little black barrel shaped jugs? I think you invert them from the top of the hive.

    Re: Spitting overwintered nucs

    Good advice there, I will start feeding mine in a few weeks and add a third box with foundation in April. Once they draw out the foundation the queen will go up and lay eggs in it and I will take...

    Re: Why different color of honey?

    I am seeing the same thing here. There wasn't much of a black locust flow, I think that might be part of it. I pulled a little honey from 3 different counties and all the honey was the same color. It...

    Re: A busy weekend in the back yard!

    Yep, me too. Checked two dd hives both full of swarm cells and ready to swarm any time. I ended up splitting two hives into ten nucs, each with a queen cell. Hope they all get mated. Picked up my...

    Re: too early to reverse in Ohio?

    Reversed a few today, seeing some drones too. Peaches will be blooming in a week or less. Calling for 80+ degrees this weekend. Hoping for no more cold snaps.
  11. Re: Aggressive Splitting -- How many splits can I get?

    Why not keep one for honey production and split the other three as soon as they're strong enough to split them four ways. Then after you've taken some honey you can go back and split the other one....

    Re: golden rod / central ohio

    Lots of goldenrod down here but it's been dry and temps still in the 90's so not sure how much honey is going to be made. Never made whipped honey.

    Re: Pin prick test question

    Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. What I did was take a nail and prick 80 capped cells in a circle. Went back last night after 26 hours, pulled the frames and all but 3 or 4 cells had...

    Pin prick test question

    Yesterday I did the pin prick test on a couple of strong 5 frame nucs and have a couple of questions. Can a 5 frame nuc be expected to remove the same amount of brood as a 10 frame hive? Question 2...

    Re: Mason Jar in Migratory Lid with hardware cloth?

    Andrew Dewey, yes the jar is exposed to the elements. Not a problem this time of year. I plan to switch to a solid board just before winter. When moving nucs to a new location I save the masonite...

    Re: Mason Jar in Migratory Lid with hardware cloth?

    I'm doing the same thing but with 5 frame boxes, I bought some used boxes that already had the hardware cloth on them so I took them off and they're fine. Not sure if your lid will do this or not. My...

    You was all around it. The 5 didn't fire at all, looked like he wasn't gripping the track. That or he just wasn't fast enough. Watch out for Ice Box in the Preakness.

    Re: Imitation Honey sold in Ohio

    We have the same thing down here too. The word honey is twice as large as the word imitation. How would you get something like this off the shelves?
