    Re: what would be in bloom his time in NY

    Karu, that sounds exactly like my silver maples. They bloom before anything else, at least in my climate. Some have red flowers (female flowers) and some are greenish/yellow - male flowers, those are...

    Re: Drop the word "Apiaries" from business name

    My $.02...
    I don't think it matters all that much.

    Honestly, 6 years ago if you'd have asked me, I'd have guesses that an apiary is where they keep cages full of monkeys. (aviary for apes!)

    Re: Master Beek says Don't Use SBB

    George Imarie is a master beekeeper. Probably got more honey per hive than most people here. Kept bees for years, was highly successful at it. If people followed his advice to a tee (which he...

    Re: Master Beek says Don't Use SBB

    Please keep in mind that the club invited this experienced beekeeper to present his opinions and philosophies at a meeting.

    He doesn't recommend SBB. He doesn't think they are necessary. Those...

    Re: a homemade joke

    Great, you made me laugh, and now with my cold I'm hacking like a runaway hearse.

    Re: ~sniffle~ my bees died

    Sorry to hear about that! I've been through similar several times, I know how frustrating it is!

    It might be a good idea to get to know some beekeepers in the area if you can. I am willing to...

    I guess I would think that killing a happy chicken would be more of a crime. Having cut off the heads of a few happy free range chickens, I can say honestly that I did NOT enjoy thinking about their...

    Re: How long will it take to age?

    Higher alcohol also usually will mean longer aging times to be drinkable. I'd guess that you are on the longer edge of those times listed.

    Re: Open air colonies?

    I think that it will happen more often than we might think, but the hive won't last the winter so they aren't noticed as often.

    Unlike a bee tree which will persist for years until somebody cuts...

    Re: pdb or mothball crystals

    If it was moth crystals or PDb like the title said, then they should be fine after a year.

    Re: Is this normal?

    Keep an eye on the hives, if they are robbing one you can get a lot of bees too.

    You'll see them flying around for a few days. They have really really long memories...:waiting:

    Re: When should I install my mouse guards

    My rule of thumb is when it gets into the 40s at night. The mice start foraging in the hive when the bees start clustering, but they won't stay during the day when the bees get more active.
