  1. Re: New Beekeeper to be. Question regarding Bee Weaver bees and cell size

    You're welcome, thank you for the opportunity. Spring is on its way, I hope everyone has a wonderful season with their bees.
  2. Re: New Beekeeper to be. Question regarding Bee Weaver bees and cell size

    The standard size, can't say that I know the exact size but I know it is not small cell. Our foundation is the same we were using when I first started in the bees ~ 20 year... and that that was the...
  3. Re: New Beekeeper to be. Question regarding Bee Weaver bees and cell size

    Right... one of Danny's theories about wax and chemicals is that it soaks up the chemicals overtime so we don't buy foundation made from other beekeeper's wax. We want our own back. Until we all go...
  4. Re: New Beekeeper to be. Question regarding Bee Weaver bees and cell size

    Hi, I had a beekeeper email and ask me what we size foundation we have our bees on and ask that I let the BeeSource group know. We use regular size foundation in our hives. The only change in...

    Another, point about state regs...

    Has anyone checked out Hawaii? It does not border Texas but is hosts Varroa and SHB (Australia can't even boast both those pests) and check out the bee regs for...

    Laura, repeat after me. "I, Laura Beeweaver, do solemnly swear to become an Alabama citizen..."

    There!

    That makes four of us, now, who can go to Montgomery and please our case to the Ag &...
  9. Re: Calling all Alabama beekeepers: No comb law...yes or no?

    Something to consider...

    Bees don't know state lines. Any disease that resides in Mississippi and any parasite that resides in Georgia will live in Alabama happily. (I liken this to the USDA...

    Re: I am just a Beehaver!

    Ted, you are so right... the "bees are always teaching me something new" (Binford told me that about 5 years ago... and he will be 83 in a few days).

    The queen needs room to lay. No...

    Maverick, BeeWeaver here... what is going on, happy to help. You should be able to work your bees comfortably and reside by them without issue. If not, and you have a BeeWeaver Queen heading that...

    Re: Beginning Treatment Free

    I (Laura with Bee Weaver Apiaries) am sorry so many of you have had trouble with RW/Risa. Unfortunately, I am not surprised. I want to be clear that we are two different companies, and Bee Weaver...

    Re: My experience with R Weaver Apiaries

    Most beekeepers know, but for new beekeepers it is confusing... Bee Weaver and The R Weaver companies are 2 different companies. Weaver Apiaries divided into 2 companies in 1995, the first season we...
