  1. Re: Have I screwed up? Troubles with new hive.

    As a fairly new beekeeper compared to everyone else, I know what it's like trying to save every colony that you can merely for the sake of numbers. However, after more strife than it's worth trying...

    Re: Intriguing Design for Trapping SHB

    Between Rader's link and the comments here, I really can't justify even trying it out. Thanks for saving me the $30! ;)

    Intriguing Design for Trapping SHB

    I have to ask; has anyone tried this product? It looks like it would work like a charm. They seem to be fairly new on the market and I'm wondering if anyone on here has used the entrance traps before...
  4. Re: Gotta vent about customers' expectations of charges

    People wanting Beekeepers to pay for doing cut outs or doing them for free really isn't that surprising. It is a side effect that comes with all the media publicity about the "demise" of the honey...
  5. Re: Gotta vent about customers' expectations of charges

    Amen to that! However, I'm glad I know how to do it now. Beekeepers are needed from time to time, and when I say needed, I mean the times when folks are tickled pink to pay a few hundred dollars for...
  6. Re: What woods are the best for making your own woodenware?

    For frames, a soft pine works great. For boxes and the like, I use cypress or sassafras. There should be plenty of sassafras where you are at.....
    I also use cedar for boxes.
    Don't buy at the...

    I'm afraid I just don't muster up to the qualifications for that task....for all I know, the buckets may hold more cold water than warm water due to the fact that atoms move quicker at higher temps...

    I know about that, I was just wanting to take the pressure off of Mbeck.

  10. Re: Why the fuss over bees? Is the U.S. in the midst of a bee-pocalypse? The science

    That actually is correct......well, partially.
    Native pollinators are more effective, however, that is "per individual". Native pollinators have a greater amount of hair, which produces a higher...

    Re: Funny looking Queen

    Poor Mbeck, all he or she had was a funny looking queen that was brought to show and tell, and the classroom has become an unexpected uproar. :gh: :lpf:

    Re: Funny looking Queen

    If someone doesn't like him killing the queen, why not offer him the market price for a mated queen? I have a sneaking suspicion he would rather put a $20 bill in his billfold than pinch a possible...

    Re: Summer Splits in Tennessee

    When you double stack, do you have two queens (one in top and one in bottom)? If that's the case, how do you "separate" the queens? Excluder? One entrance for two boxes or one entrance per box?

    Re: Delayed reaction to a sting

    I have had that happen several times and it somewhat befuddles me. It usually occurs on my arm; my hands usually don't react. But I have noticed that the "delayed" reaction occurs when I either put...

    Re: Summer Splits in Tennessee

    Thanks for the replies and advice folks. Not much resentment, not that I care because I'd still do it anyway ;). It seems like most would give it a shot, so we will see how it goes!

    Summer Splits in Tennessee

    The goal is to overwinter some 5 frame nucs this time around. I'll be making the splits here in a few days with three frames (brood, pollen, plenty of bees, and honey). I'm also planning on feeding...

    Re: bee sting alergy question

    If you are getting stung on a regular basis and the reactions are getting worse instead of lessening, then I would be careful and meet with a good allergist ASAP.

    Sounds like you have a serious rodent problem that needs taking care of. Are there any jack rabbits or prairie dogs around by any chance?

    Re: What Percent of Hives Are Feral vs Kept

    Some of these posts are so lengthy that I'm not only becoming disinterested in the opinions of beekeeping but rather more interested in how some people prevent carpal tunnel......:sleep:

    Interesting thread. I've wondered what the numbers would be as well. I think it all boils down to habitat, and not just foraging habitat either. For example, timber management plays a much larger...
