    Re: First stings delayed reaction

    I agree Aerindel. Epi can be a potentially dangerous drug and I would caution anyone thinking about keeping one around to administer to someone to whom it was not prescribed. Prescription drugs are...

    Re: Walnut tree trap-out

    Checked the box today 24 hours after introducing open brood. Bees have moved our and covered the brood but did not see the queen today. I have a screen trap ready to install if I can catch her out...

    Yeah, those old couch cushions came in handy. The foam compressed nicely and molded around all the rough edges.

    Started a trap-out yesterday morning. The folks didn't want to kill the bees, but they feed the squirrels on that tree and the bees have been getting after the tree rats. They were very excited...

    Re: Should I worry about wax moths now?

    I would say it might be a problem. I removed bees and comb Tuesday from a tree that had been cut down for a few weeks. It was being robbed out and there were dozens of wax moth larvae crawling...

    Re: Cleaning House

    I would leave the honey for the bees and yes, some in both boxes. It will delay the cost of providing sugar water and it is better for them. If most of the cells on a frame are capped it should be...

    Re: Hive location

    If you like the spot then it is the right spot. It sounds as if you have thought it through and it is a fine space and the bees will do fine. Good luck on your new hives!

    The problem with Chapstick and similiar products is that they contain petrolatum or petroleum. Not the best stuff to be putting on or near your mouth.
