    Re: Checking hives without gloves?

    I wore leather gloves on my first ever hive inspection, and haven't worn them again. I tried latex and thin nitrile but they would tear quickly, so I started going without them. The only time I...

    Re: Guerrilla Beekeeping

    I guess I'm sort of sheltered down here in the south, but just exactly what do guerilla gardeners do?

    Re: The 150 rule (heat plus humidity)

    I had on a ventilated bee jacket. Since I was swapping bees from one hive to another I wore gloves. I hate gloves and rarely wear them. I had to pull my sons gloves off his hands and he had to do...

    You would likely melt into a puddle down here in July and August and I would likely freeze solid in January and February up there. It's all relative....

    Re: Why are people moving away from SBB

    We typically get between 48-52" of rain each year and you wear our humidity you don't feel it. Our winters are typically pretty wet but the humidity in the winter is much lower than in the summer. ...
  8. Moving double deep nucs to deep hive bodies, did I mess up?

    I may have goofed. I'm thinking I did. I had 4 nucs in double deeps that were excessively bearding. They were covering the fronts of the nucs and balling under the landing board. There had to be...

    I have been wanting to make some late splits and I had 4 early splits in double deeps that were excessively bearding so I wanted to move them into a deep hive body. Today was one of my last good...

    Re: Why are people moving away from SBB

    I've never used a screened bottom board. I don't really understand the physics behind their use. You lose the chimney effect of a hive by using them.

    In Alabama our hollow trees almost...
  12. Re: Bear sighted tonight - keep your fingers crossed

    Pour salt water around the ground rod for the fence and run an extra wire to the ground rod on your house. Wet (saturate) the ground around the entire fence. Retest the fence after doing that and...

    Re: Splitting A Hive

    I'm in my second year as well and I was tormented about making splits. I over complicated the matter considerably. I've now made about 10 this year and there's really nothing to it. As long as you...

    S Gibson, you've already seen that some here live in fantasy land where nothing is more important than their hive of honeybees. I blame our society. We live in a country where many people think...

    Absolutely or at least I did last summer, and I either got really lucky, or it's not a problem. My brother and I bought a business one year ago this coming Saturday. From the first of June until...

    Re: Sting pain index study

    I got stung dead center of my chin a few weeks ago. It didn't hurt too bad, but I looked like I had a goiter.

    The cuticle of the finger is the most painful spot I have been stung. Just beside...
  20. Re: Is it worth testing to determine if they are Africanized Honey Bees?

    The horse was stung by bees in a feral hive. The guy that owns the extremely hot hive has them in the middle of a 500 acre piece of property that he owns. They aren't bothering anyone but him. Two...
  21. Re: Is it worth testing to determine if they are Africanized Honey Bees?

    I agree Ed. I don't know why he doesn't get rid of them. It's his choice though.
  22. Re: Is it worth testing to determine if they are Africanized Honey Bees?

    No. They're waiting on the tests I guess. I would have taken a flame thrower, mixed with some sulfur to it.
  23. Re: Is it worth testing to determine if they are Africanized Honey Bees?

    I talked to my buddy today and all went well. The horse carcass was examined and it had over 100 stings on one ear. The odd thing is that the horse was laying very close to the hive. Like it...
