    Re: Back ground noise....

    Re: Back ground noise....

    Or, perhaps people should realize the difference between objectivity and subjectivity thus, giving leeway to a forum where high standards exist. This also includes cherry picked objective facts being...

    Re: Acebirds one hive

    This "one hive" is becoming so famous that if Ace sold queens from it he would make a fortune! Heck, he might have the equal of a 100,000 colony operation on his hands, except......it's actually one...

    Re: Back ground noise....

    Haha....this is one of those threads where 100% of those who read want to respond, but out of suspicion that people are talking about them, 99% do not say anything. I love mind games! :D

  6. Re: Honey spill attracts thousands of bees in North Fort Myers

    The lesson I took from that is, secure your barrels! :rolleyes:
  7. Re: Have you ever proselytized for beekeeping?

    You're an inspiration to us all! :applause:
  8. Re: Feeding wild bees - wow, they sure drink alot!

    I think this thread is a perfect learning opportunity for Beekeepers and non-beekeepers alike. The lesson here has to do with individuals who glean information from uninformed sources (ie media bias,...
  9. Re: Goldenrod in NC.......Lots of Bloom But No Nectar?

    I'll jump in on this one. Three years in beekeeping now, and I have never seen a honeybee working goldenrod. I am always looking for it too during the late summer/early fall. Like Rader said, I have...
  10. Re: Have I screwed up? Troubles with new hive.

    As a fairly new beekeeper compared to everyone else, I know what it's like trying to save every colony that you can merely for the sake of numbers. However, after more strife than it's worth trying...

    Between Rader's link and the comments here, I really can't justify even trying it out. Thanks for saving me the $30! ;)

    Intriguing Design for Trapping SHB

    I have to ask; has anyone tried this product? It looks like it would work like a charm. They seem to be fairly new on the market and I'm wondering if anyone on here has used the entrance traps before...
  13. Re: Gotta vent about customers' expectations of charges

    People wanting Beekeepers to pay for doing cut outs or doing them for free really isn't that surprising. It is a side effect that comes with all the media publicity about the "demise" of the honey...
  14. Re: Gotta vent about customers' expectations of charges

    Amen to that! However, I'm glad I know how to do it now. Beekeepers are needed from time to time, and when I say needed, I mean the times when folks are tickled pink to pay a few hundred dollars for...
  15. Re: What woods are the best for making your own woodenware?

    For frames, a soft pine works great. For boxes and the like, I use cypress or sassafras. There should be plenty of sassafras where you are at.....
    I also use cedar for boxes.
    Don't buy at the...

    I know about that, I was just wanting to take the pressure off of Mbeck.

    That actually is correct......well, partially.
    Native pollinators are more effective, however, that is "per individual". Native pollinators have a greater amount of hair, which produces a higher...

    If someone doesn't like him killing the queen, why not offer him the market price for a mated queen? I have a sneaking suspicion he would rather put a $20 bill in his billfold than pinch a possible...

    Re: Summer Splits in Tennessee

    When you double stack, do you have two queens (one in top and one in bottom)? If that's the case, how do you "separate" the queens? Excluder? One entrance for two boxes or one entrance per box?

    Thanks for the replies and advice folks. Not much resentment, not that I care because I'd still do it anyway ;). It seems like most would give it a shot, so we will see how it goes!
