    D Coates, You fail to recognize that some of us are so intellectual that we don't need facts before providing expert commentary.

    Re: Senate Bill 510

    The bill will likely be blocked in the House because the Senate does not have Constitutional authority to initiate tax legislation. As currently written by the Senate the bill contains "fees" which...

    It is not the box that you keep your bees in that is important. What is important is not confining your thinking in a little box or standing on the box to deliver sermons. Liberate yourself from the...

    Re: winter reality check...

    Sounds to me like you can solve their lack of stores issue. Another issue is too few bees to form an effective cluster. In addition to adding honey and pollen frames I would add a frame(s) of sealed...

    Re: Dusting with talc for Varroa

    I also think putting Apistan, Checkmite, and Amitraz in beehives is loony. Some agree with me and some don't. The fact that you don't is OK with me.

    Re: Dusting with talc for Varroa

    I'm constantly amazed at what some people will put in their beehives. If the general public was aware of some of the loony ideas on this website none of us would be able to sell honey.

    Re: Is it too late?

    Requeening with a mated/laying queen is your only valid choice. There isn't enough time left for the hive to make it's own. Brushy mountain should have one more shipment of Jennifer Berry's queens...

    Re: single colony moving nets

    A military surplus insect bar or sometimes they're called mosquito bar work well and are easy to find. If you need to cover multiple hives they would cover an area the size of a long bed pickup.

    Re: combining ferals with russians

    A laying worker colony thinks it's queenright which creates all the problems associated with requeening. The brood pheromone is what prevents laying workers- not the queen pheromone. I would be very...

    Batman is correct. A frame of brood from another hive will absoutely prevent them from leaving.
