I only sell my own honey, our farmer's market would also boot a person out selling other folks honey. My reputation is worth much more than a couple of thousand dollars of selling other folks honey.
They maybe Africanized , I'd suit up before I got around them.
Just go to 8 frame medium equipment. My 12 yr old daughter can move those. I even have 8 frame shallow supers (w/ 7 frames) for honey supers as honey frames are heavier than brood frames. I and my...
Screened top inner covers and bottom boards. But hey! Go for it! With two hives you can build all sorts of gadgets to experiment with.
Wow, here in the middle of KY in a very small town, I sell my honey at the local Farmers Market for $8 lb (plastic) and Ross Rounds $1 an oz . I sell the same honey at a boutique store for $15 lb....
That mechanism is the cure for the common cold, some forms of cancer if initiated by a virus (HPV and cervical cancer come immediately to mind) perhaps even HIV, in my poor uneducated opinion : )

$135 will be my price next year for home grown queens, treatment free nucs.

As a psychologist, I find some of the rat holes ( highly technical term) we go down into as a group fascinating ......I do wonder about the gender bias on these type of descents. They seem to be...
Online Labes and their software. Really like the prices there

Bee friendly and systemic pesticide should not be used together as a label : )
I use Gorilla glue and a solid bottom with a grove for the plastic foundation. I went to the solid bottom as the chain decapper was every once in a while breaking one of the bottom bars. Haven't had...
I think it would have been worth the $25 bag fee to bring some to the meeting and then you could have checked the honey and wine for the return trip. Surely you are aware of the 3oz carryon limit. ...
All my standard nucs are mediums. I only do deeps on special order as I run mostly medium boxes. Don't know if that would work where you're at but it works for me.
You do have to fold parts down to make a frame rest. It's there.
Feed. Bees will forage on what they want.
Needs to be a good flow on for plastic. Make more frames with wax foundation and save the plastic for next spring. Feed until a hard freeze to catch up.
I agree, just bottle separately.
Producers pride (TSC) does not contain copper.
Today : ). Will have to pull again in late August. About a 1/3 of supers were full but uncapped, probably due to amt of rain this summer. Usually pull once around this time.
