    Re: My (alternative) theory of the Bush Miracle

    I agree Rusty. Someone got what I would consider pretty disrespectful on her FB page. If they disagree with her methods, why not just stay off her page? Don't ruin it for the rest of us. That goes...

    Re: Wintergreen for verroa

    I have heard this works. I also add lemongrass oil and spearmint to everything I feed. Spearmint is supposed to do the same thing.

    Re: My recipe/method for sugar blocks

    I had bricks over mine and it appears they had been eating them. They also had honey in frames. I am assuming they died during the 23 straight days of below zero temps we had.
  10. Poll: Re: Hive Overwintering Fools - Challenge 2013/2014

    Checked yesterday and both of my hives are dead. One carni and the other a buckfast. We had 23 straight days of sub zero temps. A new record for us. Both hives had food. The carnis were in a fist...
  11. Re: My Hive died. Why and where to go from here.

    SOrry I thought you said there were 5 on there. You should be able to keep the frames.
  12. Re: My Hive died. Why and where to go from here.

    You have drawn comb left from this hive and your package or nuc will be that much ahead of the game because of it.
  13. Re: My Hive died. Why and where to go from here.

    Why did you have 5 hive bodies on if their stores were light? It would have been easier for them to heat a smaller area. but if your cluster was that small, it they would have died anyway.

    I had to shut if off and walk away for awhile after watching the bees get nuked by the fungicide in California. It doesn't cast commercial beekeeping in a very good light. The bee operation...

    Re: My recipe/method for sugar blocks

    The best bet in Lauri's sugar brick recipe is to follow it to the letter. It can be halved and quartered if you don't have that many hives, but if its gooey, you either cooked it, or used too much...

    Re: Package Bees: 2 lb. vs 3 lb.

    Here in northern MN many install 2 pounders but the conventional wisdom is we need 3 pounders because our growing season is so short. 2 lb just isn't enough bees.
