    Re: Check those prices before buying!

    Mann Lake's prices are always invariably higher than everyone else. That's the trade off for the free shipping on orders over $100. And I agree with Lauri - prices have jumped a lot in the last few...

    HiveBodies.com in Hazel, SD. :thumbsup:

    Good stuff. I bought all of my supers from him. Will likely get my next batch of deeps from him, too. Highly recommend. Good prices and excellent quality.

  3. Re: Bees are storing pollen patie and sugar syrup

    If you want them to draw new comb on bare foundation, you need to feed 1:1 syrup. Even with flowers blooming, the flow may not yet be in full. Thus, you should consider feeding until you have a...

    You would need to send them in for analysis to be 100% certain.

    Re: Corn Syrup

    The stuff you can buy at the supermarket is NOT okay. You need fructose corn syrup, which is typically not found at your garden variety grocery store. You can just mix up Megabee with 2:1 or 5:3...

    Because you can rest assured that they will be certain to forage only on organic pollen and nectar sources.

    Re: First Sting of the Year

    I don't know that there is a time without. Just happened to be my first one for this year - and on my lip. The swelling is astounding.

    First Sting of the Year

    Sure. Just toss a pattie on. Had my jacket on but my veil not up.

    Right in my bottom lip. That's a new one.

    Ouch.

    Re: 2013 Mann Lake Catalog

    I've done that comparison several times. It's usually about a wash for me.

    ML higher prices + free shipping = WB lower prices + shipping

    Both have excellent wooden ware. All of my boxes and...

    Re: chemical free package bees

    If you're looking for bees that are raised without "chemicals", you could try BeeWeaver Apiaries: http://www.beeweaver.com/home.php

    You understand, of course, that any bees you keep will consume...
  14. Re: concerned about GE corn in Middle Rio Grande Valley, NM

    I guess it depends on what you mean by "contaminated". If you're concerned that the honey might contain pollen and nectar from non-organic sources around you, then I suppose you could consider it...
  15. Re: concerned about GE corn in Middle Rio Grande Valley, NM

    They certainly could. Keep in mind that your bees will forage for pollen and nectar (and consume water) in roughly a two-mile radius around you. It's likely that within that space they may encounter...
  16. Re: concerned about GE corn in Middle Rio Grande Valley, NM

    Bees don't really pollinate corn. Wind usually does the work for corn. The bees might take some if they need it, but there are likely other sources in your two mile radius that they will be attracted...

    Re: Stainless Honey Tanks on Ebay

    In early December, a couple of them went for $60-80. Now they're always fetching over a $100. I'd like to snag one, but I'm fixated on the lower price point. :D

    Re: Walter Kelley Multipurpose Tank

    Riskybizz - did you by chance ever purchase this tank, and if so, your opinion or experience? I also think this looks like an interesting all-in-one unit that would cover many different tasks.

    If that happens to you again next spring, let me know. I've got a bunch of new deeps in the garage, and I'll make a drive to Hudson.

    Do you know about the short course at the U? It's a good introduction to keeping bees in MN, and a great opportunity to connect with other new beeks.
