  1. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    Ace, you should move to California and run for office (or national office for that matter). That way you can come up with lots of laws that subdue the minorities you don't like then complain that you...
  2. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    Ace, this has nothing to do with common sense. It has to do with city people moving into the country and demanding country folks follow their rules.

    Harley and Mike, thanks for the input.

  3. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    When we moved into our current location over 9 years ago, I did all my homework. Called everyone I needed to, checked zoning, checked the neighborhood ect. Rural setting with lots of animals, no...

    You're right normally it is to protect interest with money they are donating to campaigns.
  5. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    No it has not passed yet, and that is the key. Again, it is about the eroding personal rights of individuals that is at stake.
  6. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    Harley,
    Not 200' from neighbors....200' from their property. I could also find a "deal" on land IF I wanted to drive 100 miles to work, I drive 45 as it is and that is to much. They could live on...
  7. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    LOL....well not any more, my wife is a Veterinarian and I'm a research scientist and we can not afford even close to 50 acres in Michigan not to mention our property is still not worth what we paid...
  8. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    I'd say it is not fair, where I live everyone has at least 5 acres, our houses are all at the back of the property, but I have neighbors who have driveways that go past my bee yard. Houses are more...
  9. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    Last year Michigan passed some crazy farm laws also, but they don't affect just ppl in town. I live WAY out in the country but I only have 5 acres, if this passes I would have to fence in my entire...

    You might be able to find a local beek with a smoker that will help you in the process. And Welcome to the site.:thumbsup:
  12. Re: What to feed during Winter when the hive has no honey?

    One other thing, I bought my fondant from Bushy Mountain, not as cheap as making it but much more convenient.

    Bernhard says you can winter a colony with no stores this way.
  14. Re: Pros and cons on Sharing a bee yard with another beekeeper

    That is CRAZY! It would have never crossed my mind that someone would get into my hives if they were close to each other.......I guess I'm going to have to start thinking like a criminal ;)
  15. Re: When your ex topples your hive, can I site animal cruelty?

    Animal cruelty? We ought to be careful how we toss about such phrases. When it works in ones favor it seems like a good idea but the Animal rights movement is NOT on your side. They will turn it...

    Re: Late season Queen Marking attempt

    That makes sense. That leads to another question (sorry OP I don't mean to hijack your thread): If you find an unmarked new queen, do you do anything about that or is it just something to keep...

    Re: Late season Queen Marking attempt

    Just a curiosity.....what is the fascination with marking queens? I know it helps to find the queen but it seems like if you are not selling queens (i.e. need to find them quickly and box them up)...

    How do the bees get out if you have so much insulation around them?
  20. Re: Idea for Winterizing Hives - Feedback Appreciated

    I build mine on a 2x6 frame and use heavy duty tarp for the top. It is round enough that snow just slides off.....but you gave me a good idea for some temporary chicken pens by just staking them...
  21. Re: Idea for Winterizing Hives - Feedback Appreciated

    You could use cattle panels to make a "hoop coop" and put your hive in it. I use these for my chickens and they are more sturdy than the temporary car ports. 14190

    Re: Please Stop...

    I agree with this, if I give any advice I try to point the person to where it came from so they can look at the source. I also normally give the "it's my first year" disclaimer.

    But I do think...

    Re: Warre Hive - Constructing Top Bars

    Frames are usually cheaper if you buy them by the 100, I think my local place sells them for about 75.00/ 100.
  25. Re: Is there anything I should be doing now?

    That is why I said "should", it may not be exact in every case but I wouldn't totally discount it.
