She's a beauty.
A couple of weeks ago I received two caucasian queens from John Jacob of Old Sol Apiaries out of Rogue River, Oregon...these were a limited release. I am looking forward to see how they will fair in...
Hambone, theses folks are some of the best.. I've been using JBJ's queens for quite awhile now.
Love it when some of my favorite beeks make the news......https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=aGWU0EQKpag:applause::applause::applause::applause:
Even though I have been beekeeping for several years, this year I had a lot of drama going on in my bee yard. I learned a lot of new things I had never had to deal with before....this board is...
Pics are great...don't delete...
Yeah, thanks for posting...
I had no mentor except Beesource and all of the great beeks who helped me when I first started. The videos are like going to school....makes it so easy.
Just want to thank you Don for the great videos. Been beekeeping for 10 years and never thought I could raise my own queens. You make it so easy.:applause::applause::applause::applause:

Harry is right on with his advice. I use his method and it works like a charm every time. I will reiterate works every time I have used this method. I have tried other methods with no success. Thank...
Thank you for this info everyone. This is very enlightening.
Pic is worth a thousand words. Thanks Michael.
Thanks, Ernie. Chick, I personally use for human consumption the Gray Celtic Sea Salt. It still has the minerals in it. This is what I use for the girls. I could be wrong.
So which is better to use essential oil or flavoring????
In the upper left hand corner it looks like a piece of mouse dung.
I just love that history.
I only caught yellow jackets in this trap--no baldface hornets (which I have been having problems with) and not one wasp. Did get a few of my honeybees in it also.
