    Re: Observation hive/brick and mortar store

    Thanks Tenbears,
    What type of OB hive are you using? How many frames? Is it flat to the wall or does it stick out? How long is the entrance tube? Thanks again.

    Re: Name ring a bell?

    I just googled Sam Owen beekeeper in Montana and got zero results. I can guarantee he isn't the biggest in the US. I've never heard of him.

    Re: Value of 5 gallons of cappings

    You could open feed the cappings and then render the wax. So I think the buckets are worth more than the contents.

    Re: Long Lang Honey Production?

    Occasionally the queen will move up into the super. But usually she is content to stay in the main box. Especially if I give her enough open frames. As Mr. Bush said they like to go horizontal if...

    Re: Another typical foundationless disaster

    I think I would give that hive away and see if you can start one that is a bit more of a challenge. What's the fun in perfection?
