Did you treat for mites.
I use MAQS strips in the spring and treat again in The middle part of August. My 4 hives so far have come through the winter OK. Good product if you use it the right way.
Its federal money. cuomo will give you money to paint your hives if you vote for him.
Schumer is very good playing politics. New Yorkers love to here him talk. If he can get more pork to come here. he will get it. He could care less about our bees. I can remember what the government...
You think our government will spend 3 million on a bee pasture. its more pork for the special interest. wake up my fellow americans. we are broke now. vote them all out of office.
I would use Mite away quick strips. treat when temp is above 50 degrees.
I get the same weather you guys get. Its a shame you have to loose 80 percent. I checked my hives the other day. I have 5 hives. All hives are still alive. I treated twice with mite away quick...
Any bee sting above the heart can be serious. I always protect myself now. like I said. You dont have to give up your bees. See a good allergy doctor if you want to keep bees.
You need a blood test first to see if you are allegric to honeybees. if you are. then you start the program for bee shots. first 9 weeks you get 3 shots every week. after that you get one shot every...
No problem. You don’t have to give up your bees. I had the same happen to me six months ago. I got a blood test. Now i'm getting bee shots for 3 to 5 years. My insurance pays most of it. Don’t fool...
Great book. If I had to buy it again. I would purchased volume 1 2 and 3 separately. One book with 3 volumes in it make it a little difficult to find what I need. For the money its worth every penny.
rbherc you have it right. queen excluder in the middle of two boxes. the smoke will force the other bees through the excluder down in the bottom box. if queen is on one of the frames. The excluder...
if I have to find the queen I use an empty hive body with an queen excluder on top. I pick the frames I want to inspect from the mother hive to be used for my split. use another empty box to shake...
Try this it might help you out. I learned beekeeping from this CD.
I check my hives once a month for mites with a sticky board. If I find one mite. I put in a drone comb to trap the mites.
I wouldn't take the honey. Let the bees build up more stores till you have enough stores for them to get through another winter. I like 100 lbs for the bees. if I get more honey I can take some for...
My black lab followed me once down to my hives. The bees chased him out and never went back again. when I walk to my hives now. he stays back. lol. smart dog
I like to leave 100lbs for the bees.
yes for snow
This time of year I should have a 2" snow pack on the ground. The grass is starting to get green now.
if you have flowers on them. there done for the year. lets hope it wont happen. I think its going to be a tough year for agriculture.
I have the same conditions here. Monday night it could go down to 20 degrees. there's goes all my blossoms.
more bee space for the queen to lay eggs
good way to help prevent swarming.
don't have to feed sugar
I wont take any honey from my hives till I get 100 lbs stores for each hive. We cant predict our weather here. I have about 40lbs stored on my hives now. I hope we have a decent spring. if all goes...
