    Re: What does everyone's hive look like?

    Dan,

    Are those his and her hives?
  2. Re: Late Summer Swarm Trapping... any value? (Please read before responding!)

    If you wait for bees to move into a swarm trap this late in the season that's never been used with no drawn comb, you'll be waiting a long time. Best to try next spring or just buy some bees.

    Re: What does everyone's hive look like?

    Yes, yes, I agree. A dropped exit is a "must have" for the season.

    Re: Measuring Average Yield

    You're comparing apples to apricots. My Golden Gate Park honey is like a very fine expensive wine compared to your crappy San Mateo mud!

    Re: Collecting cool apiary photos - care to add?

    Your BWeaver queens probably have a crappy laying pattern or have already pooped out on you. I don't now why you don't listen to me and get Z's Bees queens. Those big fat girls are laying machines...

    Is that your bee yard?:eek: No wonder you didn't submit that pic on the "Show us your apiary" thread.
  10. Re: Can you usually keep more hives in a more urban area?

    It's easier to do two or three hives at the most in different locations all around the city. You cannot have 20 hives in an urban location without someone noticing. The bee poop alone on cars and...

    Re: Pool House Roof Good for TBH Location?

    Make sure your roof can handle a heavy honey load. Your asking for trouble using a ladder to bring up and down stuff.
  12. Re: Why the tall stacks of supers, why not take some and process??

    You're right Jack, they will make their own honey supers eventually without any help from me. Sure the queen will lay a little in the bottom super but eventually they will fill it all in.

    If you ever get out to SF Chris, I'll let you taste the best honey in the world made from Golden Gate Park flowers.
  14. Re: Why the tall stacks of supers, why not take some and process??

    I don't use queen (honey) excluders so the queen likes to sprawl resulting in 6 or 7 boxes high. The upside is the more bees, the more honey.

    Re: hello from Richmond, CA

    What's up with the bee emblems? Is that ceramic tile pieces you used? It's all going to look like crap in 6 months after your bees poop all over it anyway. You're just making those to get women to...

  24. Re: Is the failure rate of N. California queens higher than normal this year?

    I'm also ashamed that you're a Californian!

    Our club ordered over 100 packs and 48 queens from Z's Bees in Orland Ca. We had only 5 duds total in which Z's replaced at no charge.
