  9. Re: Manitoba Beekeepers Association's “White Paper” document

    I agree with you 100% that they should have done a little homework..

    Re: Should I be feeding pollen?

    bigG - Feeding a sub will get the queen in the mood to lay and start brooding up. The big question is if the outside weather is going to be mild enough from here on to allow her to do so without...

    Interesting equipment for sure. Not so sure I like the way they harvest honey. Did either of you notice the lack of capped honey? They pull it before it's ever capped. Not saying that it wasn't...
