    Re: switching breeds?

    I always wear protection. I have tried several varieties of bees in the past 5 years and I don't trust them to not try to sting me or be testy on occasion. I go gloveless sometimes but I always wear...

    I will prepare for some netting around the sunflower patch. Thank you for warning me. I have a solar fencer so I could chain onto that but it may be easier to just put stakes in and use netting. I...

    Re: Candy Board

    If you have a convection setting on your oven you could run it at a low setting to dry it out. Adding more sugar will help absorb the moisture like you were thinking. It takes a little trial and...

    I never tried one this late. If I had to guess the bees in your hive may not live long enough to get through winter. With a laying queen she will produce young bees and the bees that emerge will be...

    Re: A bear stole my no spill gas can

    A bigger bear came looking for some more fuel perhaps but came up empty pawed.
