    Re: Removing old brood frames.

    Re: Best grafting tool?

    Go to amazon or ebay and get 10 for $4.00 with free shipping or 20 for around $7.00.

    Out of 10 you will find about 3-4 you can use.

    Re: Where Are the Bees?

    Just got back from Grand Island Nebraska and saw more yellow clover than you could imagine. Being outdoors all day around this clover I saw a total of 2 honeybees.

    absolutely blew my mind.

    Re: tick granules? seven ?

    Bees sometimes take the seven powder into the hive mixed with pollen. Not a good outcome.

    Re: Bee Away, Bee Dun...

    You have to have heat to vaporize the acid or fume. bu squirting in the hole, you'd just have a stinky tree.

    try using the fume board late in the day with little to no sun.

    the bees dont leave.

    Re: need advice! bear damage. possible queenless

    Put the frame of brood in a cooler with a burrito from Taco Bell.

    Keeps the brood nice and warm and after you place the brood in the new hive you get lunch.

    You can thank me later.

  19. Re: If this is your first year and you plan to expand next year, READ THIS

    If you are going foundationless then why even mess with the starter strip. Just break out the wedge top bar, turn it 90 degrees and staple it back in and the bees will use it for a starter edge.
