    Re: Storing Supers

    I second Mr. Beeman's idea. Been storing mine this way with no problems. The secret is plenty of Air and Light. Dale

    Re: Wd-40

    Bee's don't like the discharge of the mower hitting their HOME either. Don't ask me how I learned that. They also don't like the Exhaust from my Truck either. Still learning at 86 Yrs. At least I...

    Re: Wax Moth question

    When you ask a question about Wax Moth like that, you will get all kinds of answers. If the damage is BAD, then discard the Wax, if not, the bee's can handle minor damage from the wax moth. You will...

    Re: two nucs, one doing great, one not so good

    That is the advantage of having 2 hives, so you can compare 1 to the other. Might help if you could give the weak hive a frame of Eggs and Brood. Maybe you can get a frame from who ever you got the...

    Re: Royal Bee Supply beware

    Take your ARGUING someplace else. This Forum is for Beekeeping Information. Arguing just lets everyone know how stupid you are. End of story.

    Re: scale for honey

    Like the Guy said, he has Lawyer gene's in his family. He is worrying about something that likely won't happen anyway, but I guess it keeps his brain busy.
  9. Re: Help! I screwed up my first cut-down split - Does it need to be corrected urgent

    Remember, you are not the first "NEW BEEKEEPER" and you will make mistakes. Don't start down that "WHAT IF" road, that is for Worriers. The Bee's have been taking care of them selves for Thousands...

    Re: Bummer from a removal last night

    I don't understand why the Bee's were still in the HOSE. Just turn the Vacuum on and suck them into the box. Fix the Vacuum so that you can take the hose out of the hole and close the hole. Even a...

    Re: Capping Tank Ideas?

    I use a plastic storage box that I bought at WALLY WORLD. I made a 1" square piece of wood long enough to go across the narrow part, (you will have to use some sort of an anchor bolt (one on each...
  12. Re: Cut out bad comb, honey everywhere. Should I worry?

    If you have Robbing, due to the honey=nectar spill, you can put on a "ROBBER SCREEN". It will confuse the robbers & you may think that the Bee's from your hive will have a trouble figuring out how to...
  13. Re: dropped off bees at wrong location, i have to move them

    The alternative is to just move them to the other guy's place and put some grass or a branch with a lot of leaves on at the hive openings so the Bee's will have to reorient to their new location when...

    Re: To those who claim they never ever get stung

    I keep a bottle of Bendadryl Allergy in my tool box for times when I get stung. It helps with the itching and swelling. Liquid gets into your system quicker.
  16. Re: Second year start's a new...check out the gift the girls left for me.

    Firfly, when you put the Wax in the frames, make sure that the TOP of the Wax is at the top in the frame with the slant in the cell's pointing UP like it was originally.
