    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    Am I missing something here? ND = “Not detected” however they have a number after it. If this isn’t the number of what they detected then what is it? It’s under the

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    If you put peppers in your eggs then you are probably eating not only round up, but many other chemicals. Unless you are using organic peppers. According to Nurishing Traditions it's one of the...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    This is sad in my mind. (I'm not trying to fight, but I'm being serious) Everyone of us has a bias of some sort. What we need to do is look at facts and seek to discifer them for ourself. ...

    I'm sorry I used the wrong term. Not GMO, but according to this article Genetically manipulated. Sorry for the mis statement. Check out this article. I have no idea who the author is, but it's...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    GMO isn't just "roundup ready". They're modifying things for all sorts of reasons. Roundup ready is only one. (Corn has pesticide for that worm that eats them, I've also read of them putting...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    I know of one of my hives that I had at a farm in strawberries 2 years ago where they sprayed roundup inbetween the rows to kill the weeds there and I could smell it the next day. The bees wern't...

    Sticky: Re: Please Post your Swarm Dates?

    If you have a bee vac (or if you can borrow one) you can use it. Attach some PVC pipe to the end of the hose. To go 30' you'll probably need at least 2 lengths of PVC pipe. Get the lengths and a...

    Re: swarm takes over nuc?

    sounds like robbing to me. If they're fighting and they're balling your queen those could be the robber bees. That's my first thought. Just before dark see how many bees are in the hive. That...

    Check out this method. I used it 2 years ago . (I hope to use it again this year) using a top bar only. This year I hope to make special frames to build 3 rows of queen cells, but I think it would...

    Re: Colony update here in Pa

    I'd at least give them a frame of open brood before combining. It'll go much better. Give them the open brood (including eggs) wait a week or at least 4 or so days, then combine. in my experience...

    I agree with the concern here as well. However I can see the wisdom of moving them so that the foragers don't all leave. Perhaps a remedy. . . Move whatever hive / hives you're going to be using to...

    Re: Colony update here in Pa

    John I have no idea what it comes from, but mine has always tasted that way. I've chalked it up to being "raw" and not pasturized which kills and removes all of that flavor that is actually good for...

    "more chances" presupposes that there are multiple queen cells in the larger hives. Is this the case? I had one hive where I found several queen cells (2 were bad / drawn on old comb) but the...
  14. Re: Should I give new swarm a full super to eat?

    Justin, I assume that you still have a flow on there right? If so there's no need to feed. They're bringing in plenty. I would get in there and check things out though. They may be making a mess...

    One of my larger hives had queen cells a few weeks back. I took the queen and split off the cells into mini nucs and left one with the large hive. I still wanted to get honey from this hive. Well I...

    caught a tough swarm tonight. It took 3 times catching the queen in a clip before I finally just gave up and left her in there in the bottom of the box. They're now nicely at home. Swarmed this...

    Last Thursday there was a swarm in Oxford. I only was told about it yesterday because the home owner wants them removed.

    Re: Bee Tree Trap Out HELP

    If there's no queen in the outside box then they're a "queenless hive" and will be quite ticked off. If you put a frame of open brood in there they'll calm down a little, however the best way is to...

    Re: Bee Tree Trap Out HELP

    TO do it as Cleo Hogan mentions you only put the funnel on once the queen is out and if you want to kill the hive. The queen under normal circomstances won't go through the funnel into your box.

    For me the few swarms that I have caught I have moved them far enough away and that made them stay. There was a swarm last year where I couldn't get all of the bees so I left the box at the bottom...

    It looks like the top portion will just pop off. It seems like there's a spot to get something to pry it up. Perhaps a screwdriver or something similar. The only thing I've seen like this is a...

    Thanks Michael!!! I learned something today. I had no idea that they would make a "queen" out of a drone egg.
