    Re: $3000 per hive

    They may have gotten ripped off
    I think I could easily get them set up for $2500.00 per hive that would include the fancy three way entrance reducers.

    Re: Queen rearing season for central florida

    My guess is that most would suggest any time drones are abundant. Drones can be harder to come by in the dead of summer. Spring and possibly Fall if you have a bit of a flow

    They ain't got no side meat up there, probably don't even know what it is.

    Bring me up there this fall, I'll bring some side meat to wrap around his back straps.

    Where'd you find the best price on Rosin? How much did you buy to get that price.

    Don't be ignorant ....there is plenty of information out there and plenty of beekeepers willing to recommend a source for bees if you plan properly.

    I'm confused you seem to be saying "Hey there are people out there selling a product that they shouldn't be and if they won't sell it to me at a price I name I'm going to threaten them.".

    Re: My bees just swarmed! I'm done!

    Don't hurt yourself trying to get those bees, set out your other box with some old comb if you have it. There will be other swarms, I've sold I fair amount of bees to people that live near you.

    My guess is that you have plenty of drones flying.
    Plenty of drones here as early as last week.

    Get a price with shipping to your home and I'll pay the same for 100# Rosin shipped to me.

    Provided it's processed Gum Rosin from a reasonable source
