    molasses

    In searching for sugar to make bee pattys with, I found a place that has a deal on molasses, can molasses be made into pattys for bees, or is it not the right form of sugar ?

    fogging hives

    What temp. is best to fog hives with mineral oil? If you can do it at lower temps, when bees are clustered, wouldn't this get better coverage as all bees should be in one spot?

    Re: fume board honey harvest

    When you use the fume boards, do they work in the mourning when it's cooler, maybe not as many bees to get out of supers, or are they best in the heat of the day ?
