    Re: Heather Honey substitute/question

    Manuka (as mentioned above) and the other Tea Tree honeys are also thixotropic. I doubt though that grapefruit honey is, none of the other citrus fruits are that I'm aware of, like Orange Blossom...

    Re: salvia/sage

    You might find that the throats of the flowers are too long for the bees to reach but perhaps the salvias produce some nectar between the sepal and the petal.

    Re: Drawback of using essential oils?

    But aren't herbs supposed to enhance the general health of your bees anyway? I'm sure I read a report on it somewhere, I'll have to see if I can find it now.

    No, you're right, you didn't SAY they were the stolen hives, but in a thread devoted to some hives that were stolen you posted a link to a sale of some hives that happen to be painted a similar...
  13. Re: Hives stolen from Taylorstown, PA area- Please be on the look out

    Of course they can, I just think it's a bit rich to start surmising because this guy happens to have a few blue hives that now he's suspicious. C'mon, no-one else can paint their boxes blue?

    Re: Nucs for comb drawing factories

    There's no distinction between honey comb and brood comb. If you use foundation they are all the same. The distinction is between worker comb and drone comb, the cells of the drone comb being larger...

    Re: OK, I now officially do not like Hop Guard

    Offtopic I'm afraid but, Lauri, why have you torched your woodenware like that? I assume you've run a blowtorch over them. Do you just like the appearance or does it serve another purpose? Camoflage...

    Re: Moisture content of honey

    G'day Jeff,
    Say, how do you test the frames before you pull them? Do you test them in-situ? I'm considering getting a refractometer and am trying to learn best ways of using them.
