    You can make a "Weasel box trap" using rat traps which are cheap and easy to find. Google "Weasel box trap plans".

    Re: USDA honey production survey

    This years form is different then last years NASS Survey. Last year it stated failure to complete and send in could lead to a FINE. Maybe I have another survey to look forward too.

    No big fields of Buckwheat around here. Japanese Knot Weed and Asters will make dark honey around here. Honeydew will darken the honey also.

    Tandem axle is not needed. A friend of mine has one on an F-550. Another commercial beekeeper that runs bees in FL and WI also runs them.
