    Re: Black bees

    It's great that there are some old feral black bees around. The population has fallen. They are true survivors. We need a breeding program to preserve those tough genetics. Did someone say that they...
  2. Re: are you wondering if they are still alive inside?

    Hi squarepeg, Yes. Pikeville would be my hometown. We live in Bledsoe county. Right in God's country!
  3. Re: are you wondering if they are still alive inside?

    Thanks for the link to the sugar cake. Sorry trottet1. It's a good subject! I'm not a complete newbee, just a slow learner. LOL
  4. Re: are you wondering if they are still alive inside?

    Great advice. Mine are light. Is dry sugar better than and entrance feeder, and how do you apply dry sugar exactly?

    Re: Philippine beekeeping with native bees

    Thanks for the link and the explanation. They are brand new to me. So they are a different species from the regulare honeybee, apis mellifera?
    I bet they are fun to raise! I think the american...

    Re: Philippine beekeeping with native bees

    Hi Apo Mariano,
    I have seen other posts about stingless bees. Are they really stingless?
    Thanks!

    Re: I'm New!

    Welcome! This has been a great place for me to learn as well. I was inspired by The Fat Bee Man, Bushfarms.com and The Sustainable Apiary by Micheal Palmer. You will enjoy learning!
  9. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    That's what good neighbors are for! When the issue turned to being a good neighbor is when I softened my stance. Anyone would be understandably nervous to have a neighbor with 100 hives.
    A wise...
  10. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    That's a good idea to give them a jar of honey. :)
  11. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    I see your point Phoebee. I guess I was a little overly cautious of losing rights. We always have had to keep livestock in an enclosure. I believe in having a good relationship with neighbors. That's...

    Re: My first little harvest!

    Congratulations! Natural comb too! My best tasting honey costed me 7 stings that day. For some reason it has always been my favorite. :)
  13. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    Your points are well taken. :) I agree that moving into the city would be hard too. I think the urban-rural clash is as old as civilization itself. I lived on an acre for four years. I literally took...
  14. Re: Michigan is going CRAZY! Possible 2015 law change about keeping bees

    Good Luck to you Hackleguy,
    With all due respect to those of differing opinions, I think Hackleguy is right. In the end we are all beekeepers and have a lot in common. We have to avoid the...

    Hey Guys,
    I live in Tennessee. I totally respect the differing opinions of others on the website, but it grieves me to see property rights eroding in our country. Chickens draw flies, cows beller...

    Re: Still going...late Fall

    Okay Thanks!
    I definitely will supplement next year. That was one of my many mistakes this year.
    The benifits of having a thin divider in a ten frame deep are enormous!
    Good luck with your...

    Re: Still going...late Fall

    Good Idea!
    I experimented with a 2 x 4 deep this year, but I had a problem with spillover. I'm sure the inner cover was not sealing with my divider.
    You almost need two small inner covers to...

    Re: Still going...late Fall

    Hey Beepro,
    That's great! It never hurts to have younger bees. That is the best way to winter with the double deeps I bet. I have a lot of unused 10 frame deeps. I would like to go with 5 or 8...

    Re: No Stores Going into Winter

    Great advice about having an expert examine the hives. My mistake was weakening them too much by taking brood to another hive.

    Re: No Stores Going into Winter

    Good thread. I'm in the same boat. I wish I had a hive top feeder. The one I have lets the syrup drain down too much.
    I would prefer to have one like FBM that will not drain down. I may go with the...

    Re: Lessons Learned (the hard way) LOL

    :thumbsup:This is true! Well, now it is time to prepare for winter.
    Next year, I'm excited to go out and fight round two, well maybe five, but only two years as a serious beekeeper.

    Lessons Learned (the hard way) LOL

    Hello everyone! I learned a tremendous amount this year. The numbers show a bad year, but I was experimenting too much.
    The biggest mistake I made was leaving them too weak after a split. They...
