Ah..a vegetarian...that's cool.
I make bio-diesel to fuel my trucks and HHO. Formic acid is not used. What are they using formic for in bio-fuel making? I use sulfuric acid, NaOH , and methanol to complete the transesterification...
Brushy knows the order comes over as soon as it's sent.
All of my products were in stock. I don't know about their back order policy because that didn't apply here.
They send you an email saying...
I contacted BM's customer service before making my post. I was told I can pay an extra $15.00 to have items that are in stock shipped on time.
This post was my second way of communicating my...
Check back when the cells are capped. I think you're fine based on what you've described.
Got stung 4 hours ago while sitting in my office chair! Apparently there was a honey bee on the underside of my forearm and when I placed it on the armrest of my office chair she tagged me. So far...
I had the exact same thing happen 2 years ago . The hospital didn't give me EPI shot because breathing wasn't affected. I talked to my family doc and she advised me against immunotherapy saying, "why...
Pete, same thing happened to me 2 years ago after being tagged in the head. I've been stung since without issue but now I wear a full bee suit, have Epi's, Benadryl, Pred, and Zyrtec on hand.
I have what I consider one of the best bee equipment warehouses on the east coast within 10 miles of me. I wanted to try some of Brushy's cool ultimate bottom boards with moats and didn't see them...
I have a suggestion for Brushy. I base my suggestion on this: whenever I need to order beekeeping supplies, I will only order from Brushy if the product I want is exclusive to them; otherwise I order...
I would imagine they would feel the same way about treating with powdered sugar, which is also unapproved for mite control?
I'm helping a novice manage his hives. He started last year with 4 packages and did nothing but feed them sugar syrup. Three died over winter. This year he contacted me for help and I found at least...
Right now it will be the maple tree flowers.

I know your teacher and I think you mis-interpreted him. He is the best bee man I know and is always looking out for what's in your best interest. I believe the point he was trying to make is each...

Is there any approved treatment for trees falling on hives? ;)
You can use a couple of frames as long as you're going to check for activity everyday.
Paint the boxes a light color and don't let them get too hot.
I've had foundationless frames on the outside positions collapse from the weight of the honey.
These are deep frames that had no...
Bees harvest skunk cabbage in February in my area (NJ)
I rip paint stirring sticks that I get for free and just tap them into the groove. They fit snug but a little wood glue in the groove first won't hurt.
Small Hive Beetles love apple cider vinegar.
I assume it won't be a problem in the winter?
Be quick and careful. Unless my weather maps are wrong it's only in the mid to upper 20's in your area.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
I got 81 lbs. from 3 nucleus colonies this year.
These same colonies also built up to 3 deeps each for winter and have their top deep full of capped honey.
This is my first year using 3 deeps for...
Like everyone else said, store them until next Spring in a mouse proof container. Inside the hive is fine if it's mouse proof.
Wax moth's won't be a problem this time of year.
