I did get it at a meeting. :(
I'll hang on to it. I have some others on my hives, I just thought that my solid bottom boards gave me less hassle.
Go take a look at the various ways people are placing their hives Great Thread HERE.
I ordered some hive components and when I picked them up, the dealer put in a screened bottom board instead of the solid one that I asked for. I'm not a fan of the screens but I needed a bottom...
They sure messed that one up, didn't they?
Canadian Oil Less Acid would be a better fit.
50 years from now, this could be standard practice for bee keepers.
Wouldn't THAT be something!?!
If you're worried that you put another super on too early, you didn't.
At 90% full, you were late.
In a few years, if you are still keeping bees, you will look back at this post and shake your head.
Is canola the same as rape seed?
Your honey supers have entrances?
How long does Canola bloom?
Do the bees like it?
What do the bees do when the canola bloom dies? No other bloom in sight......
Did you start out with ONE brood super only?
Generally, one would start with one deep, wait until they have it 70-80% worked, and then add another deep. After that brood box is worked up, the honey...
I went to a honey festival in Frankenmuth Michigan last weekend.
They were doing a bee beard demo on a guy and he lit his smoker up. It was binder twine. IT BILLOWED for a long long long time.
I thought the video was great!
I learned a lot, got a first hand look at a balling party, and think your wife is awesome!
Honey bound is where the brood chamber is so crammed full of honey that the queen has no place to lay!
With the Winters you have, you probably want two deep brood chambers, not one.
I asked a commercial bee keeper near me about putting a few hives on some property I own near his. I was afraid that my bees would have too much competition. He has over 400 hives. His reply "You can...
Get rid of the top box or get the appropriate amount of frames in it or you will have some wild comb!
Why'd he do that?!?!
You have more experience than I do, and I don't use excluders either. It amazes me how the queen stays in the brood chambers and the rest get filled with honey. I had some capped brood in the bottom...
From the looks of your pictures, it doesn't look like you have enough bees to need to draw more frames. The landing boards on my April package hives are never that sparse.
All I use is plastic, no...
Perhaps some nearby swarm traps after the second year would be a good idea!
I wish he'd put a couple hundred of his high hives around me! :)
I know what you mean. I work with these two guys, one is a good worker, does everything textbook and gets the job done. He doesn't care when the boss comes around to see what he's been up to.
I took 85 pounds today from a hive in my driveway. The first super (placed June 2) has a Slight taste of mint!
The second super (placed 2 weeks later) has a very STRONG taste of mint!

Good stories take ordinary experiences and make them ecstatic and unfamiliar. They are products of imagination, the creators of new images...
