    Re: Smoke when taking honey?

    PC. I do the harvesting like you; pull the frames that are full one at a time with little smoke or a spray of 1:1 sugar water to keep them busy, then brush them off. We use a very soft brush,not the...

    Re: stop swarm

    If you only have one deep you should add another below the super. I am not sure about FL but feed them 1:1 so they can draw comb. This should keep them busy. If you are sure they are swarm cells I...

    Re: Upstate New York "winter is coming"

    No the bees do not enter the quilt box. The screening is small so the chips or whatever you are using doesn't fall out. The screen replaces the fabric that Rusty uses; both work. The shim is what...

    Re: Upstate New York "winter is coming"

    AG, Rusty's quilt box is a little different than what we do here upstate. Some in our club use a taller box, not too much taller, and use screening not fabric with woodchips. Worked like Rusty's...

    They are truly unnerving! Makes me a little nauseous looking at them, like a sci-fi movie of bugs. :( !

    Re: Best bang for the buck?

    Agree. Plastic I would not use. But as a customer of buying honey the Muth jar and crystallized honey was a pain inthe neck. I would want "easy" for customers.

    Two people in our local bee club here in Delhi had those big ugly hornet things in their yard last year; one girl brought it in to show us (dead of course) the other man had them in the woods behind...
  16. Re: UPDATE: Hives Not Opened in 10 Years...Video Posted

    Agree with above. Use a smoker to help calm the bees down. Even better, Michael Bush is in Nebraska and part of this forum. PM him. Definitely reverse the boxes to their original positions. Take off...

    PS. Muth jars look great, but when the honey crystallizes you can't get it out of the jar!

    KISS is the best way to market. Don't use plastic jars. Do one thing that is original for you; whether it is in your gift basket or your labeling....your wife being an artist helps, she'll think of...

    I tried a few frames in supers. They drew out the middle piece which was plastc and only one side with drone cells. The other side is empty.

    Hi Lauri, I tried a few frames in an undrawn super and interspersed some in a drawn super. I don't think I had the correct timing regarding a heavy flow. Our autumn flow should be starting soon so I...

    This is what I would do if I wanted to try and save a hive: I would ask your mentor if you could buy a frame of brood from him. If he agrees this is what I would do:
