    Re: Honey Glut

    Wonder how many shipments like that are just waiting to be put on the shelves? :eek:
  4. Re: Pricing to Cooperate not Compete with Fellow Beekeepers

    I also meant to say that I was at the grocery store the other day (Save a Lot) which is a lower end grocery store similar to Aldi for those who don't know. I snooped around for their honey prices and...
  5. Re: Pricing to Cooperate not Compete with Fellow Beekeepers

    It's a very simple concept of supply and demand and whole selling vs retailing which will vary between different areas and also from year to year depending on many factors. I live in rural TN and I...

    Re: Maxant "9 frame" extractor?!

    I purchased a 3100M last fall and since then I have extracted 1,000 lbs+. Extracting 6 frames radially works fine and extracting 3 frames tangentially works fine. However, extracting all 9 frames...

    Re: Remove honey supers "early"?

    If all you can do is "store" it until fall, I too would just leave it on the bees until then. It's too risky leaving it out whether it's been through the freezer or not. The bees will maintain its...
  9. Re: Secret to successful Baithive trapping - Firewood, driftwood, bark

    This is no secret around these parts. Old timers have been using wood chunks around here for YEARS. I've used all types of wood with success, but I started using peach several years ago. The last two...
  10. Re: wild bees gathering at gtop of my chimmney

    Unfortunately, it is likely that a nest may already be established. Wax comb is a natural hydrocarbon which makes it highly flammable. Therefore, I'd stay away from the fire option. What you need to...

    Re: Greetings From Western Alaska

    Looking forward to seeing how your bees do! I worked in King Salmon one summer while in school a few years ago. I did all my food shopping in Naknek. Loved it there and the folks were great too. And...

    Re: Washboarding

    Dearth is definitely a reason for it. However, it is only mid May and the flow is not over. The exception to the dearth is that they are preparing to swarm. Once the bees store all they can before a...

    Re: Does this look like EFB to you?

    They look fine to me. I will echo what Mr. Latshaw said concerning competition for space between brood and food stores. I have that occur every year, and it is usually in my smaller hives coming out...

    Re: 32 swarms in 38 traps

    Not bad! Last year was my best year so far. I caught 30 swarms with 18 traps. Many of those were caught within a 48 hour time span. It may be a while before I see that again.

  20. Re: Found Swarm cells and Supercedure Cells in the same hive

    Swarm cells and supercedure cells are not defined by placement on the frames, but rather the number of cells present. Like Jrg13 said, they are neither but rather queen cells. The time of year can...
  21. Re: Found Swarm cells and Supercedure Cells in the same hive

    How did you know what was a supercedure cell and what was a swarm cell when they were all in the same hive? I have a hunch that they might have ALL been swarm cells. Personally, if it were me, I...

    I will also add that I started catching swarms this week. It is indeed the earliest I have caught swarms by two weeks. It has been a good year for maples and the Henbit is UNBELIEVABLE. Usually, I...
