    Re: Mann Lake

    You may think so but I'm going to vehemently disagree. When a company cans the guy who "encouraged" people like myself to spend almost 50 thousand bucks a year (over many years may I add) at their...

    Re: Frame feeder VS top feeder

    If its cold out the use of an inner cover would most surely impede the bees from recovering the syrup. If its below 50 degrees its best to have the "source" within 3/8 inch + - of the top bars...

  17. Re: Help me price this bid (pumpkin pollination)

    Do you have any clue about overhead expenses or the value of time? Make it at least $1000.00 plus 300 per any hive that comes out with less than 8 frames of bees on your pickup date. Gas, wear and...
  18. Re: State apiarist says oxalic is about to be approved.

    When I can snag another 50+ lb. bag of OA at the local chem supply for under 100 bucks I doubt the cost to bleach frames is going to rise substantially?

    Not out of the end of my squirt gun will it run in that range.
