Welcome from South Georgia!
I have enjoyed reading this thread as well. I laugh at some of the responses while I find similar situations familiar to me. Honesty is a good choice, as our wives seem to know how to fix many of...
Welcome! You have come to a great place for information.
Hello Beecuz from just across the state line. It seems that, as with most things, licenses and a lab would probably be required if it is to be sold. One site states they maintain a...
I second the suggestion of treatment for allergy. Venom immunotherapy may be a possibility you should consider.
Welcome from the south end of the state.
Welcome from South end of Georgia!
Very nice pictures!
I use a six gallon trash can in the back of a pickup truck and leave it in it in my barn.
Some other ideas:
if you find yourself apologizing to a bee, which you just found in the container which you keep your burr comb, after realizing that she had been locked in solitary confinement for more than half her...
Here is a video of Schawee tanging a swarm at sma school. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ok7SiHgzp04
They did what he wanted, so I guess it was successful. I love to watch JPthebeeman and...
Welcome, Having more than one gives you something to fall back on if you have trouble with one. With two hives, you can compare them to each other. You will have a source of eggs from the other...
Thanks, sounds like you are on to something! I may have to find a source for Chux. I had never heard of it.

Amazing. The propolis looks almost like wool or rat nest from the photo. Looks like they were very determined to close it up. I wonder if they will remove it on their own, when it is warmer.
Very nicely done blog. Best wishes on your endeavor.
If you have read all the "you just might be a beekeeper" posts and look forward to the next one, you just might be a beekeeper.
I tried to measure a "dead" cotton mouth that I had killed and he bowed up tried to bite me when I put the measuring tape beside him. He had not moved in ten minutes. Closest I ever got to being...
I personally have experienced quiet a few snakes try to increase the 5.5 deaths per year statistic -- I have been know to try to reduce the statistic. They can make a bad day out of a perfectly good...
I have seen several ways of doing this. Here is one and the information about it.
You are welcome. I sure would like to know if it is bad for the bees. I would stop using it. I just can't imagine it being worse than the bees pollinating a sprayed or bt field.
I had the same idea and gathered several bags a few weeks ago. I used some in my smoker a few days ago to my satisfaction. I was a little concerned about chemical residue, but considering my bees...
Honeybees using a keyboard. What a great time to get a few questions answered!
I understand the expert was a "teddy bear". "As for the teddy bear test, Dr. (Mike) Merchant says it may indicate whether the bees are ornery, but not much more."...
I use HiveTracks online. It is a simple way of keeping detailed records. I have tried hivetracks mobile. Hive tracks now has a to-do list also. Thanks Mark for a great way to keep records!
