    Re: Wax Moths

    How do you recondition the hives that have wax moth? Do you simply scrape the wax moth debris off the frames and freeze and/or spray them with BT?

    I have a couple of dozen frames with wax moth...

    Re: Is it necessary to get stung?

    I probably get stung 25 or so times per year. They almost never swell, but just the other day one stung me on the ankle and it swelled for a couple of days. That happens about once a year, but the...

    Re: TF until today

    I keep bees for a hobby and give my honey away. So my livelihood does not depend on my bees. My choices are to treat and help grow more pesticide resistant bees, or be treatment free and hopefully...

    Biggraham610 pretty much sums up my view of "the" government. I don't want the government in my business, period. When I bought my ranch some 12 years back the former owned had received some type...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    A few thoughts:

    1. If the population continues to grow at some point in time there will be a person on every square yard of land. Who knows, maybe we will learn to like cozy.

    Re: 8 frame or 10

    A 10 frame deep is approximately twice as large in terms of square inches of frames an eight frame medium. It is so close that one can say a 10 frame deep equals two eight frame mediums.
