    Re: Outsmarted!!

    Ok I understand the bee escape, I also learned not to keep it on more than 24hrs.
    But, they also moved honey from the full super to the empty super?

    Re: Best time of year to remove honey

    I live down in Anderson and we extracted 3 supers a month ago. I have about 3 more that could be extracted but, I'm just waiting for when we have time or we run out in our store.

    Re: processing beeswax - what is this stuff?

    Cool. Anything that can help catch a swarm. I'll be adding this to my things to use as a lure.

    Re: Quick Crimson Clover question?

    Yeah I would just let it re-seed. And, clover doesn't like a lot of shade. Ideally we keep it grazed but, sometimes it gets ahead of us so we bush hog it.
  6. Re: What's the biggest mistake (s) you made starting out?

    1. Thinking I could use some red welders gloves instead of beekeeping gloves.
    2. Thinking I need to use gloves.
    3. Keeping a bee escape on too long.
    4. Not thinking about moisture in the...

    Re: Seasonal Allergies & Honey. Opinions?

    I used to take allergy shots and it seems to me that honey may be a similar way for the body to develop "immunity" to allergens. But, yes I would like to see some studies. And, I never use "treat...

    I remember reading a National Geographic article many years ago these people. It is really cool. And, those are some "all natural bees".

    When I read this I thought "the same thing happened to us", then I saw where you are. At any rate we've been overseeding our pastures with crimson and white clover for several years. It will grow...

    What is the best time to switch out old frames? Ie, the start of the season, after the main flow, before fall, or "when I can".

    Re: processing beeswax - what is this stuff?

    I wouldn't try to use it as propolis, there is too much other "stuff" at this point. And, I just use a paper towel (as opposed to cheese cloth) with a 1/2 an inch of water in the bottom of the...

  17. Re: What to do with honey super while feeding bees

    I would just leave it out for them to rob. They will store it or use it so, it will help them either way.

    Foul Brood?

    My buddy and I were checking his hives and found one larva that looked "melted". He immediately said it was Foul Brood. Could it have been something else?

    Re: grouchy bees

    Can you define "grouchy"? I did an inspection today and they really went after me couple of times.. It was very windy so it may have been the smoke wasn't as effective.

    I stopped using QE this year and have been very happy with the results. And, if you do get brood another option is to put a QE on 30 days before you extract; making sure the queen is below it. ...

    Re: Raccons

    My understanding is that they can see red light but, that it doesn't "scare" them as much. These lights "blink" which is "unsettling" to them and does "scare" them. We had raccoons, skunks, and...
