I just wish they offered a different style veil. I will not wear the fencing veil regardless of how good the jacket.
We have a friend in the scaffold building business. He made these from some rejected scaffolds he had. Great stands.
Gotta be one. You don't usually see two colonies vertically in the same wall. On the other hand, comb started at the top often extends all the way to the bottom.
Northwest Louisiana is terrible. Too wet. Last year's spring flow was terrible because of the long winter.
Recently, we were in need of a new yard and exhausted all our convenient contacts. Therefore, I went to google earth and did a flyover of the area we wanted to use. It needed to be convenient and we...
GET THE MOTOR
You'll be glad you did.
Watch this short video to see where I caught one today.
When I use LGO and go to hang a box this time of year, the bees are streaming through the entrance before I get it hung. I like LGO.
What brand do those of you who like yours use?
It's interesting how the same people keep posting to this thread to bump it up to the top. Just sayin'
I've had one for a few weeks and like it. It's light and, paired with the zip-on clear vue veil, it's a good combination. The fabric is thick enough that you will NOT be stung through it. I worked a...
Monday night, a new customer showed up to purchase a five-frame nuc of bees from us. It was his first colony and he was excited. We put the colony in a homemade wooden nuc box. It was a very large...
I've tried them all and, in my opinion, the clear vue veil is the ONLY way to go.
Way to go. The swarm traps are filling up here faster than we can hang them. Saturday, I hung two traps on trees from which I had removed swarm-filled ones the previous day. 24 hours later, they were...
If not, why?
I have read that some put the queen cell in as soon as the bees, pollen, and nectar are inserted and I have read that some make it up 24 hours ahead. What do you do and why?
The other five hives at that bee yard are very gentle, and their queens mated in the same area.
We finally decided a hive was too hot and needed to be requeened. About three weeks ago, we put queen excluders between the boxes. Two weeks after that, we moved the box with the queen fifty yards...
Maxant 3100P. If you can't afford it, save until you can. You will not regret it.
This is the swarm trap riverderwent referenced in an earlier post. We are partners, and we were seeking how to construct more efficient, more permanent traps than our previous ones. The description...
Wow! 70 responses to a question about where to get 1# honey containers for a good price. It's been much more entertaining than I anticipated.
Thanks, SilverBack. I contacted Dahletch and can get the same number of containers and lids with caps and shipping for .38. That's so much less expensive than either Sailor or Gamble.
