id like to see some also
I got two gives from him 2012 and 2013. Low swarm and lots of brood and and tons of honey. I'm happy with the bees but was just wondering if anyone had heard of yellowtails
I got a couple hives from a commercial beekeeper in Lonoke Arkansas. He refers to his bees as part yellow tail. Anyone ever heard of yellowtail? They are the nicest colored bee I have ever seen!
on a positive note, blueberry farmers pay for pollination!
yes, it is awesome
extractor ordered Maxant 3100P, any advice before it gets here? I got about 20 hives and I'm tired of having the kitchen tied up for so many days with crush and strain. Any thoughts before I get...
i think you ordered the wrong foundation, maybe it was for split top bar?
I have wondered the same thing, it seems SHB are much worse when I use an inner cover.
first, maybe define what treatment free means to Solomon Parker. I've been following your posts closely since I am from Arkansas also. Beetle traps are ok.
I like this idea, it makes since and would assure you never had honey ferment. Thanks for the idea
some brood in it!
I think this makes sense
Maybe a little bit but they had to move or eat a bunch of it
I got a 10 frame deep and a medium that is full of bees, pollen, honey. I put a shallow foundationless super on it baited with one shallow frame that was full but not capped. Came back 4 weeks later...
I had this same problem and got rid of all my double deeps, problem solved. Went to single deep with all mediums above
make your move during the morning before it gets hot, top bars don't do too well over 100 degrees
I about give up on them also
then the wild bees rob all your hives!
easiest to find in a 5 frame nuc at sundown without the use of smoke, no smoke!!!! practice finding the queen in the nuc then graduate to the big hive
Richard Taylors book said it was for easy of manipulating frames. Meaning the RR may need to be moved around some to get the edges filled out. I'll try the double deep cut down to a single next year...
No eggs in the RR super. The bees would go in the super but mostly just stayed on the outside of the plastic frames. Maybe around a hundred bees in the frames but they never did anything
RT's book says it is for easier manipulation of the deep frames.
I had a 10 frame deep that was full of bees, beautiful brood pattern on all the frames, both sides except the outside frames and even they had brood on the inside, above it I had a full medium super...
pests are the main concern
