    Re: Langstroth, Dadant or National hives

    Cheers for that - I went wild, started with Dadant and Langstroth then I was given National hives (standard & 14x12). I must admit Langstroth (10 frames) my choice hive.

    Quality Honey will always be in demand, if you can't sell it then feed it back to your bees

    Re: Making foundation in the wired frame

    I'd like to make my own foundation, but not sure if its financially viable
  8. Re: Feeding sugar from the bag, over inner cover, as some do with fondant...

    Thanks for that, I'm going to try your method. It's easier than making fondant and the use of corn syrup. Someone recommended adding lemongrass and tea tree oil to the sugar! I haven't tried that yet

    Re: Polystyrene Hive Bodies

    I over winter my hives in poly nucs and hives. Bees love it as they are warmer and the consume less feed. One downside you get a lot of condensation on the roof and sides of poly hive.!!

    My bees are very fussy, I tried dry sugar and moist .. It's not working, they need the feed but throwing sugar crystals outside the hive.
