    Re: How much is it worth?

    Based on what? Someone has already said it would depend on what kind of wood it's made from. It could be warped, drafty, rotted, or eaten up on the inside by wax moths. Does it have a viewing...
  2. Re: Is it a bad idea to inspect a hive while the bees are bearding?

    The top of my TBH flips over toward the side of the hive that the bees are bearding on and hangs there while I work. If there's a lot of bees hanging out there you stand the chance of squashing some...

    Re: How much is it worth?

    If they're in good shape and built well buy the empty one (if it has bars included with it). It's probably not worth more than $70. Clean it up, paint it, seal it good, and wait until next year for...
  4. Re: What a difference between flow and dearth in behavior.

    Every spring there'll be all sorts of comments from people about how their bees are so docile and how they don't need to suit up or use smoke. By the time fall rolls around you don't see much of...

    My wife had a bottle of regular Karo corn syrup (contains no HFCS) that she was going to throw out so I decided to try it in one of my top bar hives. Initially, I put about a half of the bottle in a...

    Re: Bees Hate men?

    I haven't seen a paw paw tree since I was a kid (and that was a long time ago). I bet most people now-days never heard of them.

    Re: Small Hive Beetles situation in your area

    I've seen very few SHB so far. Keeping my fingers crossed. However, I'm seeing a lot of big black hornets catching honeybees. They usually grab a bee and then land somewhere close (on top of the...

    Re: newbee questions

    It's pretty late in the season to be starting a hive. You're going to have to feed them a lot. Hopefully, there will be some good fall foraging for them where you're located.
  17. Re: What birds or insects have you seen eating bees?

    Interesting conversation about bumblebees. I'm 64 yo and grew up on a farm. I always thought bumblebees gathered nectar like honeybees and weren't predators like wasps and hornets. However, I...
