    Re: Low grade cut comb

    I asked them about that also and was told I would have to get a commercial food processing license if I went to a kitchen that someone already had licensed.

    I have a question -
    I can't sell liquid honey without a license (can't get a license yet). I can only sell comb/cut comb right now.

    I have some cheese cloth I could use, I will probably warm up the honey some before I strain it again.

    Re: electric fence for trailer mounted bees

    What exactly makes a breeder queen better than your normal purchased queen? What/How do they hold back the "genes" from being passed along to the $15 queens?

    I assume your joking... I mean seriously someone would consider taking another human's life (even someone you don't like) over bees?

    In my opinion the big "secret" story is the New Geat Depression has begun - lawmakers just aren't willing to admit it.
