Just wondering if any commercial beekeepers have had any experience with L.R. Rice Honey company and what is was. There website http://www.riceshoney.com/
Did you have any problems with your feeders leaking? Would like to see a pic of your feeder if possible. thanks
Just a simple question: What percentage of the hive in the summer time do you think comprises the field force? 20%? 40%?
Can you reference where you learned this? This is big news! Thanks
Question for Canadian beekeepers: if packages were allowed, do you think there would be a demand for queenless packages?
Nick can you offer some more info. on where you heard the rumor and under what terms? I read recently that Blueberry growers in Canada were looking into opening the border so that they could source...
Just sent you a PM
Micheal thanks for your response. After more research plus reading your comments the QMP doesn't have the stimulative effect that I thought it would. After initially reading Mann Lake's comments...
I wanted to know what kind of experience other breeders have had with Pseudo Queen with QMP (Queen Mandibular Pheromone). Has anyone tried it with breeders when prior to grafting to get nice sheets...
Are most Canadian beekeepers using 1 strip per 5 frames of bees or having success with a higher ratio of strips per frames of brood?
Has anyone had any luck using apiguard in almonds? Or is it too cold. I was thinking about 3 25gram treatments in the middle.
Thanks Joe. Are you introducing two frames at a time (90-120 cells) in your single?

How much $ For the 75-100 Lb. premix? Let me do the math and I'll give you an aswer.
I am not saying growers are making this conscious decision...but it is the result of the supply demand dynamics of almond pollination.
College football starts this week, so I guess we can legitimately begin every beekeeper's favorite pastime of speculating on what almond pollination prices will be for the 2013 almond pollination...
Feeding sub too. It is going to be a long summer and even worse a long fall. Blue curl and tarweed looking pretty sparse.
I am wanting to use an air powered stapler in the bee yard. My freightliner has an air compressor and I run air to my trailer. Has anyone had success plumbing an air regulator to the glad hands that...
so you are working with a starter / finisher. How many cells are you putting in it at a time? Sounds like a good system.
If I leave grafted cells in my starter for 36 instead of 24 hours and remove cells from the finisher on day 9, there is no overlap. As a result, I can graft weekly and use the same finisher. My...
