12 above here this morning.
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...
A lot of it is our fierce winters....hives died this year due to low numbers from a skunk late last fall. My fencer battery failed. First year they were down to a very small cluster in April...This...
I am hoping to get some good info here. Watched Michael Palmer's lecture on sustainable apiary and am really wanting to get away from buying bees in the future. Beekeeping started with my 12 year old...
What a cool find! I am looking forward to finding out what is inside...keep us posted!
late April if we are lucky. Last year we had 2 major snow storms in April a week apart.
I have heard this works. I also add lemongrass oil and spearmint to everything I feed. Spearmint is supposed to do the same thing.
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.
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...
SOrry I thought you said there were 5 on there. You should be able to keep the frames.
You have drawn comb left from this hive and your package or nuc will be that much ahead of the game because of it.
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've had really good luck with this company. They are heavy duty and come with a zip case and gloves. http://www.jawadis.us/
That scene struck me the same way....really disgusting.
Our club bees come from Oliverez in California.
Well after watching how its done in California and almonds. its no wonder the bees are dying.
Sub titles can be turned on Netflix
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...
It can only get better...2013 featured the winter that would not end. 2 major snow storms in northern Minnesota in April plus cold weather and snow in May. Then we got 2 months of no rain in the...
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...
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.
