  1. Re: Why the fuss over bees? Is the U.S. in the midst of a bee-pocalypse? The science

    Only 1/2 pound? When did it drop by 50%? How did I get the idea that the per capita annual consumption was 1 lb? Darn you, NHB!!

    Re: Move the hives to the bean fields?

    Don't poke the bear Haraga. Just makes things worse.

    No, no economic benefit to move your hives. But, next year move your splits closer to the soy beans.

    Re: speeding up filtering?

    Uncap frames, stick them in extractor, extract, and let all of the honey drain into a bucket. Then dump the bucket into a barrel w/ a bung hole on the side but near the bottom. Maybe you could build...

    Re: Sellable honey and moisture

    Does it get sold to a packer before it ferments? Is that "permissible" under NC's Honey Standard of Identity?
  5. Re: Why the fuss over bees? Is the U.S. in the midst of a bee-pocalypse? The science

    Don't we import a considerablly high percentage of the honey consumed in the US? Doesn't domestically produced honey account for something like 2/5 of that which is consumed? Not the right number of...
  6. Re: How can I make hive boxes that are perfectly stackable-a necessary requirement.

    You'd better be in tune w/ your table saw or, like a guy I know, you will be picking your fingers out of the sawdust bin.
  7. Re: Why the fuss over bees? Is the U.S. in the midst of a bee-pocalypse? The science

    No, what we need to do is stop eating as much meat as we do and turn modern agriculture on its ear.

    What was described makes me think of "biodynamic intensive gardening", perhaps taken a step...

    Re: Acquiring a large volume bees?

    If you buy bees out of almond pollination they may have already had a nuc pulled out of them before they get shipped to you. You may have to stipulate that they not before buying them.

  12. Re: How can I make hive boxes that are perfectly stackable-a necessary requirement.

    Do what you do best and pay for the rest.

    Are you in this hobby because of the woodworking or because of the beekeeping? Avoid the frustration and buy your boxes, unassembled of course. You'll be...

    Re: Measuring Average Yield

    I believe that when USDA ARS calls me they ask me how many hives I have, how many hives I took honey from, and how many pounds of honey I harvested from how many hives in which States.

    So the USDA...

    Re: Does fondant make it to the honey supers?

    Stavros, you really do already know the answer, if you think about it. You seem unsure. But just think. If the honey supers weren't there, what will the bees do w/ the fondant? Only eat it as they...
