    Re: My queen in laying in Bur comb!

    Burr comb is typically the only place they have room to lay drones.
  2. Re: I need some pointers on foundationless frames

    Get groove or wedge top frames. With wedge top, you can remove the wedge and stick it into the groove, fits nicely. I prefer straight groove top but wedge top are more versatile since I use...
  3. Re: Conventional Beekeepers Bashing on Treatment Free Beekeepers

    I'm all for mite tolerance, but I've tried a few 'mite tolerant' stocks, haven't found one that actually tolerates mites here yet.
  4. Re: Conventional Beekeepers Bashing on Treatment Free Beekeepers

    I can see how that statement might play out Deknow, but it would be a tough pill to handle for the commercial industry. What would the estimates on loss be if you were to let varroa play out like...
  5. Re: Serious Concern - capped honey has black blotches in it

    Honey in brood comb and probably reused cappings.

    Re: Saying hello!

    Good luck with it, you will figure it out, sometimes it's just not that easy but it's doable.

    Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Up to 3.5 million in funds, pretty amazing, I will have to give an A+ to their marketing team/strategy. I'm still contemplating whether or not to fund around the $340 to get a box and some frames,...

    Re: Terrible Problem /.=)

    Square, our weather has been odd, stuff is blooming really early and the bees are taking advantage of it. I have one of Phil's queens going into her third year, they were about 6 frames of bees in...

    Re: Are You Informed?

    Got to meet two of the guys last week I think it was, thanks to Honey-4-All for inviting me out to the results taking.

    Re: Do bees utilize reed canary grass pollen?

    It depends if something else is blooming. I've seen bees working rice when it's shedding as nothing else must've been around.
  11. Re: Paramount Farms buys out Headwater Honey (David Mendes)

    Phil hit it a little more realistically for me. I don't see an intern becoming the division head in 3 years with just an Ag degree. My point was, read that description, that's something I'd write...
  12. Re: Keeping Nuc's and full sized hives in the same spot

    It's fine except under prolonged dearths. It's trickier if you're making splits though, from those big hives in the same yard.. Established nucs typically don't have issues.

    Dan, out of curiosity, what are your cluster sizes at about now.

    Re: How would you have responded?

    How are they going to anchor the bees to the hives w/o queens. A cell seems unlikely to hold them.

    Re: switching to natural/ 4.9 cell size input?

    What is your thinking on going small cell. Small cell is not natural cell, btw. If you already have 10 frame equipment, don't get 8 frame for the new set up, or just sell off all your 10 frame...

    Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    It's a novel idea for the backyard, save the bees type, and makes grabbing a jar or two of honey pretty straight forward which is why it's hot. I've seen this thing pop up all over Facebook since I...

    Re: Hives Died in less than a Day. Why?

    Spraying around the hive wouldn't kill it, regardless. To nuke the entire hive, a good portion of the bees have to be exposed.

    Re: How many beekeepers come out even or better.

    GWW,

    I meant that's what you need in the yard come winter, don't have to start out that way. Start with 2 hives, see how that goes the first year, come next year, you can make splits and the nucs...

    Re: How many beekeepers come out even or better.

    Honestly GWW,

    I'd aim for 3 hives, and always have 3-5 nucs on hand.

    Re: bispham's causal chain

    There's synergy between the virus and the mite as well. The mite adjusts the population of the virus to the more or most virulent strains, this has been documented. Mite resistance is a good start,...

    Cali is about on par with you guys, I figured it would be better over in VA since it seems greener over there than it is here most of the time. I think the main point is the OP want's...

    Re: How many beekeepers come out even or better.

    If it's just a hobby, does it matter? I've spent a lot of money, tell one of my landowners it's $40 for a 3g bucket of honey, never cash the checks... I don't think twice about it, the cost of...
