    Re: Honey Container Prices

    Thanks, SilverBack. I contacted Dahletch and can get the same number of containers and lids with caps and shipping for .38. That's so much less expensive than either Sailor or Gamble.

    Re: Looking at a 35' high removal.

    We have a 20 foot extension ladder. If that won't do it, we don't do it. Anything higher than that isn't worth the risk to us.

    That Queen Excluder Sure Works

    When we went to pull honey from one of our hives, we found loads of brood ABOVE the queen excluder. And NONE below it. Oops! Looks like we sequestered the queen on the wrong side of the excluder....

    Re: Be Careful What You Ask For.
