    Re: SC Beekeeping Blues

    I think everyone around me is tired of this cold weather repeatedly dipping down here and lingering. Since the heavy rains it's been hitting the low 30's and tagging the upper 20's at night here in...

    Re: Is the the poisoneous jasmine?

    That's a forsythia bush, not jasmine (or jessamine). The jasmine flowers look a lot like forsythia flowers, but they grow on vines and start blooming a tad later, about the same time as the azaleas...

    Re: Post Your Bloom Dates - 2012

    It's now the 2013 blooming season. I'm sad to say that my blueberry bushes are blooming. The bees might like it, but it's risky for getting a good fruit set and survival.

    Re: chat room isn't opening tonight

    Thanks, Barry. I just visited and found the dropdown box next to the user names. Are there additional improvements that we'd enjoy hearing about, or should we just discover them as surprises?

    Re: Botulism in honey! Toxic honey!

    I hope that was a tongue-in-cheek comment. Nutritional and caloric needs of infants change considerably over a "cpl of years", along with their intestinal flora and activity. Well before they are a...

  8. Re: Do YOU know of any COLLEGE-aged beekeepers?

    That school probably has a pretty hefty tuition charge to go along with that 25K intuition, too. ;) I have a couple of college student beeks here, but they have to develop their own intuition.

  9. Re: You know you're a Texas Beekeeper when........

    I know I'm not a TX beek because I'm sharp enough to not set frames of wax on my hood or leave wax outside in summer unless I want it melted. :p

    I know I'm not a TX beek because people around here...

    Re: Find the error, its impossible:

    There are multiple errors in your request. Find the error. It's impossible.

    Someone has already pointed out that 1718 is also an error, though probably a typographical one.

    As you realized,...

  13. Re: My poor bees were starving - are yours?

    Have never needed smoke to feed, even in a dearth, though our bees may be calmer than David's. And we've never crushed or drowned a bee with the baggie method. We set the bottom end of the bag down...

    Re: thurnderstorms and mean bees?

    It may be the Tstorm holdover, but since you saw Q cells, are you sure they have a queen in there? You could check them later when it's sunny and see if the attitude has improved and if there are...
  15. Re: Next Week's Forecast - Not Looking Good

    People hive bees even with snow on the ground. 48^ and sunny is nice weather in comparison. :) I'd avoid going out if I thought I might be caught in a rainstorm, though.

  19. Re: May have made a mistake with color of hive

    Saying bees don't see red is a way of saying that the red part of the spectrum isn't in their color range. It's not that red is invisible to them, just that they see it like we see black. A reddish...
  20. Re: Yellow (Carolina) Jasmine help please...

    Your wife should keep her jessamine if she loves it. Azeleas, jessamine, rhododendrons, there are an abundance of plants in bloom right now that are not good for the honeybees. Whatever she has in...

    Re: My bees have Nosema

    I'm not saying that your colony doesn't have nosema, but other things besides nosema can cause bees to have dysentery. You may want to send a sample for analysis to find out.
