    Re: Depth of hive box

    Re: North American ox-eye 'Light of Loddon'

    That looks like Zinnia Profusion. I just planted some in my bee yard in Ben Lomond Ca. The nursery guy said that bees love them for nectar.
  4. Re: How successful are double screen boards for overwintering a small hive on a big o

    In addition to nucs, you can divide up and eight frame box into four 2 frame nucs for a queen bank over a strong hive. I let the queen just roam around on the two frames until I need her.

  5. Re: How successful are double screen boards for overwintering a small hive on a big o

    It's the only way to over winter nucs. I use 8 frame mediums divided in two to make two 4 frame nucs over a strong hive with a DSBB in between. They do extremely well this way getting the heat from...

    I think we all can agree a monkey could do that. You just need a strong back and a weak mind which you seem to excel at. You're just trying to divert my attention because you think I'm a threat to...

    Since everyone out of state was whining last swarm challenge that it was unfair because we're in California, I think I'll start another OD swarm challenge next spring just for this forum.

    I want...

    Re: Customer concern

    Farmers markets are such a pain that I stopped them completely and just sell wholesale now.

    I've never had such stupid questions asked of me:

    Is your honey certified? (Whatever that means)

  20. Re: Late Summer Swarm Trapping... any value? (Please read before responding!)

    If you wait for bees to move into a swarm trap this late in the season that's never been used with no drawn comb, you'll be waiting a long time. Best to try next spring or just buy some bees.

    Yes, yes, I agree. A dropped exit is a "must have" for the season.
