    Bees bringing in kill

    Here is a new one for me.
    I was out at the hives putting on mouse guards using hardware cloth & it slowed them down enough for me to observe a behavior I've never seen before. They were hauling in...

    Re: Mann Lake's Pro Winter Patties

    I used these last year.
    Was separated with wax paper and the consistency I got was good.

    Re: Hunters: anyone use electronic ears?

    I use sound supressors/silencers on most of my weapons.
    Legal to own and hunt with here in KY.

    They make shooting much more enjoyable, reduce recoil,...

    Cut the branch, set whole colony in hive supported by branch, add a empty super on top to hold in place & duct tape the gap, a frame feeder if I can get it to...
