    Re: No compete clauses

    When I am mentoring new and up and coming beekeepers (which is increasingly rare) the "beekeeping ethics" sermon comes first, not last.
    Anyone wanting to enter our industry should proceed with a...
  2. Re: Business Auto Deduction Mileage or Actual Expenses?

    Close.

    It comes down to your word based on organized documentation.

    This is the basis of most successful business legalities, including accounting, tax, safety programs (MSDS, Lock-out /...
  3. Re: Business Auto Deduction Mileage or Actual Expenses?

    Actually not.
    Those receipts could reflect 100% personal use, 100% business use or anything in between.
    Receipts are only 1/2 of the equation. They reflect expense.
    In an audit, how will you...

    Re: 240 Hives stolen, Colusa Ca.

    Would you?
    24 hours daily?
    So you have 8400 hives in several orchards.
    Can you be in all locations at once?
    Do you ever sleep?
    Where do you go to eat?
    What if you only have 100 hives in...
  5. Re: Business Auto Deduction Mileage or Actual Expenses?

    How would anyone know the utilization other than you without documentation?
    What do you have for proof?
    In another example; why keep receipts for business expenses?
    Can't you just tell the...
  6. Re: Business Auto Deduction Mileage or Actual Expenses?

    My accountant tells me that I am audit proof.
    Doesn't mean that I will never be audited, just means that the auditor will walk out empty handed.
    DOCUMENTATION.
    Documentation, some knowledge of the...

    Re: Poster Child

    I like Dave.

    Also, it seems to me thoughtful to refrain from making irresponsibly insensitive comments about a fellow beekeeper that has suffered such a devastating loss for WHATEVER reason.

  8. Re: When is a telescoping cover better than a migratory cover

    I wish I could use telescoping lids.
    I have no good scientific proof of this but I really think the bees winter better with them.
    I switched from tele lids to migratory many years ago.
    Thankfully,...

    I'm sure glad we fed them up heavy in the fall.
    Looks like it is going to be a soggy one.

    Re: Shrews!

    Placing 1/4" hardware cloth for mouse guards will do way more harm than good.
    The first day that the bees actually get to forage fro fresh pollen you will find piles of it at the entrance that is...

    50 - 100 I can't help you with; sorry.

    I do want to tell you about something I have done as an experiment over the last 2 years.
    So, I am plowing through the hives, grading size for almonds in...

  16. Re: Is your Diesel Truck Legal in California?

    Unfortunately, the enrollment period for the Agricultural Exemption is closed and there is no talk of opening it at this time or in the near future.
  17. Is your Diesel Truck Legal in California?

    Is your diesel truck legal in California this year?
    If not, the California Air Resources Board is looking for you.

  19. Re: Help needed with Dept. of Transpotation Requirments?

    When one gets their DOT number they begin an 18 month "New Entrant" program that lasts for 18 months.
    Sometime during this period, usually early on, you will meet with the DOT folks and they will go...
  20. Re: in the market for a honey pump to pump out of drums

    It won't work. You will burn up the motor.
    Always pump the barrel as soon as you remove heat.
    Trying to pump cold or crystallized honey will drive the motor running amps into orbit.
    They are not...
  21. Re: in the market for a honey pump to pump out of drums

    Yes, and for pumping honey, reversing is a must.
    Do you know how to wire motors?
    If not, ask for help. It is no big deal but you have to know what you are doing.
    Then, call your local motor shop...
