    Re: Turn Combs Upside Down in Hive

    there is just no end to beekeepers that know more than the bees. lol. keep the combs as they are meant to be. the old timer was probably laughing as that guy left.
  4. Re: Pattern between farming and success of bees?

    here in central ny with our different type soil we do best in a dry year mainly because the bees are able to work every day. no sitting in the hive due to rain.

    Re: Status Change For Antibiotics In A Beehive

    Re: Status Change For Antibiotics In A Beehive

    my problem is not so much the drugs but the fact that other countries are making our regulations here in the u.s. what's next? It's our business not theirs.

    Re: Status Change For Antibiotics In A Beehive

    the reason for this change is the wto. Europe is telling us what we can and can't do. nothing to do with our medical profession.
  12. Re: Will bees released into the wild survive?

  13. Re: Will bees released into the wild survive?

    the light will not bother them. any heat from the bldg. can be over come from the benefit of the heat in winter. snow always melts first 10 to 15 feet from the bldg.

    Re: Moving hives

    sounds like trouble to me. If it turns out the guy was sick or just not seen working them it could be theft. too much value to walk away.
