    Re: Feeding honey back to the bees

    Bigfish

    If it is warm enough for the bees to fly just set the deep hive box out side with a frame or two in it.
    They will clean it up fast and you wont have to open the hive.

  3. Re: in need of a used beekeeping suit

    Go to your local building supply store and get a $5.00 Tyvec painters suite.
    Most used suit,s are stained or need repaired.
    I don't use a suit but keep one of these in the truck just in case.

    Re: Documenting tools

    That is one f the reasons we went with the Go-Pro.
    With the push of a button you can go from video to still pictures and back.
    You can also edit the videos and copy still shots.

    If the Health Specialist get there way we wouldn't even be able to do it that way. We will have to take our honey to a (certified kitchen) to have it extracted before we can sell it for resale.

    Thanks Rader
    It's close to what we need for honey but it prohibits selling for retail and the internet.
