  1. Re: Are carpenter ants a nuisance or big trouble?

    Like Mark, I've had them nest on inner covers before. Dumping them on the ground after I ran my hive tool over them a few times takes care of them and they don't return. I've never seen them do any...

    Re: Human Made Feral Hives

    OK, I think we're getting far off topic here. All this comparing bees to other animals is a bit far fetched. Bees aren't zoo animals. Bring it back to bees.

    Re: Human Made Feral Hives

    Can? All bees live in "the wild." How is it any different when my bees leave their hive to bees from a "feral" hive? They all live in the wild.

    They will, so I bend the ends out a bit so when fully closed there is about a 3/16" gap.

    I have found that brood is not as fragile as I had once thought. I don't use the shim. I put brood comb in a bucket if I'm up high. After the cutout is done or during, if I have another person...

    Re: how do you do it ?

    Hey, if I'm going to deal with a sting and take the bee's life, I leave the stinger in for 10 minutes and make sure I get every bit of that juice.

    Re: Apitherapy on ankle

    No, just an easy way to catch the bees off the sage. :) I still use reverse tweezers to get them out of the capture vial.

    Apitherapy on ankle

    Brief history. I tore my peroneus longus tendon three years ago. Had surgery to repair it. 18 months later it was still hurting with limited mobility. Had surgery on it again to repair the repair....

    Cutout in wall

    Did a cutout on Monday. Late in the season to be doing it, but the owner needed some exterior work done on the house and the carpenters obviously needed the bees removed first. Comb extended 8'...

    Re: Growing Hops

    Does anyone know how long the fresh hops will last once picked? I mean, can they be dried and kept for a long time and still be used in brewing?

    How high are your polls? How much hops does one plant produce? More than enough to use in a 5 gal. batch of beer? Did you start yours from rhizomes?

    Growing Hops

    I've decided to grow hops this next year. I was at a house yesterday looking at a cutout I will be doing today and they had hops growing on their fence. I figured if they will grow there, they will...

    Re: bees dragging out pupa. why?

    Doesn't appear to be off topic. Most beekeepers never see chewing out of pupa because they treat for mites. I think it's safe to say that nearly all bees will do this if treatment is withheld,...
