  1. Re: Greenbeehive.com anyone buy from them in past.

    Mike, I run all 8-frame medium boxes...both for brood and honey. I dedicate three brood boxes to the bees...that's their's. Anything above that I feel free to harvest. I usually figure three brood...

    Re: Bees held for ransom

    $1200 for a dozen good hives would be a steal.
    $1200 for six good hives would be a very good deal.
    $1200 for three good hives....I'd pass.

    Sounds like anger...or simply arrogance of the spoiled...

    Re: Fischers honey be gone or bee be gone or somesuch

    Tends to make me think it is definitely a shelf-life to BQ. It would be nice if the bottles had a date code on them. What you experienced is what I experienced three years ago with my bottle. This...

    Re: Incredibly aggressive bees

    If for no other reason, the bees will quit building queen cells when they run out of larvae that they deem acceptable for queen making.

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    Sure, I'm a vegetarian....send me all your ribeyes, NY strips, etc., and I will keep them safe. ;) I'll take care of your snapper and grouper filets, too. Got any quail or turkey? I don't eat...

    Seems the raptors are doing better. Here's a shot from the hayfield across the road a couple of days ago....I counted eleven of what I believe are Mississippi Kites hunting the area. The shot was...

    I have no doubt that it happened. The human race has been, at the least, a semi-nomadic creature since we have existed...populations increase and so the boundaries of their domains expand. Beyond...

    Re: Fischers honey be gone or bee be gone or somesuch

    I'm wondering if it has something to do with the shelf life of Bee Quick. Three years ago was my first honey harvest. As a newbie I wanted something that didn't stink being as I'd read so many...

    Yep, got my email this evening. I know there was some beeks that had some issues on timely deliveries earlier this summer. I guess we will wait and see what changes will be made. Foundation and...

    Re: Powder Sugar Shake Mite Count

    What difference does it make if you do the sugar shake at the bee yard or 50 miles away? Will the bees mysteriously eat the mites or something while they're traveling? Seriously, I'm curious why...

    Re: Incredibly aggressive bees

    Bees aren't aggressive, Brian, they're defensive.

    In AHB territory..."aggression" beat into them? I don't think so. If a DNA test was done on them I'd wager that they would test positive for...
