  1. Re: Any small scale honey producers ever worry about being sued?

    I think I might be deciding the risk here just isn't worth selling any honey. All of us that sell honey are at risk here and I would venture to say that the majority don't have any insurance.
    I...
  2. Re: Queenless after swarm - what would you do?

    I think I agree with chuck. It's prime time of year for a colony to be able to produce a queen and she get mated. IF it is a strong healthy colony minus the fact that it's queen-less, I would let...
  3. Re: Honey bound, no drawn frames and no extractor - what to do?

    Crush and strain IF your honey is foundation less, or is it possible to crush and strain if honey is drawn on foundation Riverderwent? Far as I can see it could be but just more difficult is all and...
  4. Re: Charge for placing a hive at someone's garden?

    Myself, I'm still in the hobbyist level beekeeping mindset about this at this point. All honey I sell I'm really not in it for the money even though I do sell it at the going price high enough I make...
  5. Re: Charge for placing a hive at someone's garden?

    It's different in case of someone doing pollination services, that's a service they do of the business they have, yes they charge like any other business providing a service of any kind.
    In your...
  6. Re: Bees stopped building comb in TBH--should I worry?

    In my experience it seems that's just how they do. I've had a TBH in operation for going on 4 years now, actually the same colony. They were originally in a TBH made from purchased plans with an...

    Re: genetically engineered honeybees

    VickyLynn that is really precisely what I was referring to, just didn't mention the name is all. There are many others affiliated with them anyway.

    Re: genetically engineered honeybees

    Control. Can't you all see where this is going?; and the fluorescent gene expression wrote of in post #6 in this thread is their mark of ownership. It looks like that fluorescent gene expression will...

    Re: top bar hives are a headache.

    You have a point there. There isn't hardly anything that can be done to even control those in a TBH because can't even put beetle blasters in there. Have you tried and had any luck with those CD case...

    Re: top bar hives are a headache.

    For any one putting a TBH into operation I think I will recommend full 100% shade for a TBH especially in the summer.

    I'm not really sure how necessary that would be in Northern states but I...

    Pollen Trap

    Anyone here collect pollen and have used the pollen traps sold at Walter T. Kelley? I was hoping to gain some insight on them and their effectiveness before purchasing one.

    Re: top bar hives are a headache.

    Phersbees, I will tell you what your TBH is really good for.
    I have had one in operation for going on 3 years now, and I hardly ever open and do anything with it at all anymore. I just let the bees...

    Re: Horizontal hive using medium frames?

    Yes ventilation is a bit of an issue that I don't seem to have resolved yet.
    Mr. Bush is right that one can make too much ventilation and do just that, make them so they cant circulate air to cool...

    Re: Horizontal hive using medium frames?

    Ok folks I'm back.
    As for top cover from the elements, I saw on video few years ago of someone that makes and sells top bar hives that I don't see why it wouldn't work for horizontal langs too. ...

    Redneck Hippie I had just explained and written and was disconnected while I was typing and lost it all. When typing something on here you better type fast. Taking the time to proofread and spell...

    Re: Horizontal hive using medium frames?

    Hey Redneck Hippie
    I made two of them at the same time, one for a friend who is handy capped and one for myself. I made them to the size of medium standard boxes depth-wise and to the length to hold...
  17. Re: My hives need protection from Carpenter Bee damage

    Yes If I can't come up with something, I just might have to give up keeping the natural wood appearance I like and go back to exterior latex.
  18. My hives need protection from Carpenter Bee damage

    I wasn't sure this thread should go under this or diseases and pest. I suppose the forum diseases and pest should apply to the bees themselves.

    Anyway those big fat yellow and black carpenter bees...

    Re: The Miracle of Going Foundationless!

    I would like to go foundation less but I'm afraid my bees would start having varroa and tracheal mites.
    Far as I know I haven't had either long as I have been beekeeping. I do think it must be...
  20. Re: Will the half left without a queen make it this early?

    All I can say is that I am somewhat in aww as to where and how far this thread I originally started has gone.

    I hope everyone did read toward the beginning how I made the split, the deck of cards...
  21. Re: Will the half left without a queen make it this early?

    Acebird I agree and that is what I meant. Maybe I might not have worded it all that clearly. Perhaps I might have left out a comma where there should have been one. I'll re write the 1st sentence of...
  22. Re: Will the half left without a queen make it this early?

    Aww gee Acebird if so I guess my bad. It's unfortunate that sometimes I just take people wrong.

    Well, I figure if all goes well with the queen-less hive, by the time they produce another queen and...
  23. Re: Will the half left without a queen make it this early?

    Maybe the flow might be just beginning here. I have seen lots of daffodils and some budding on trees. It's just that I would rather it be in full swing before doing this.

    I did the split this...
  24. Re: Will the half left without a queen make it this early?

    Well, I do recall seeing 2 or 3 drowns yesterday inside that hive, and I'm certain there are more than just those 2 or 3 there.
    For the half of the split that's left here, there there are 2 other...
  25. Will the half left without a queen make it this early?

    I think I need to do a 50/50 walk away split and don't want to this early. I went into my Russian hive yesterday evening just to see if I determine there is enough honey for them till the flow...
