    Re: When Can I Take Wax?

    Have you already purchased an extractor? Why not just do a crush and strain harvest as Michael Bush suggests on his website? beekeeper linda did a blog post on the method with a video in it.

    Re: Salt water swimming pools

    Is it at all feasible to close your hives for a morning to see if the bees are still at the pool? I'm guessing you have too many hives and its too hot there to make it worth it.

    I have pondered making candle lantern candles in the past as well. Once I get up enough wax I am probably going to make a silicone mold of an existing candle. There are a TON of tutorials on this...

    Re: Bee microbiota study

    I do have a hard time killing my bees (yes I know they get squished all the time when I inspect them), but I think I can suck it up for science.
  12. Re: Banner ads.: 'I think that was meant for me.'

    I dont mind the adds either, as long as they don't turn into those tacky "top tips to burn belly fat" type ads, or ads that make noises/ play videos when the page loads.
  13. Re: Banner ads.: 'I think that was meant for me.'

    They can also do adds based on website syou recently visited. I have a campmor ad right now because I was browsing their online shop recently, and it certinly has nothing to do with this thread.

    Re: Why not to go barefoot

    I go barefoot as much as I can too. I'm surprised I haven't stepped on a bee yet. Five fingers are nice, but you can't feel the grass and dirt between your toes with them.
