    Re: Apiary Registration

    I'm not sure about the bull analogy. If the bull is of superior lineage and your cow is just average stock you may not mind having calves out of him. You'll probably also know all about that bull...

    Re: Apiary Registration

    Actually it was not discussed in the sticky thread. That thread is for posting links to individual state laws.

    Dog detects AFB in hives

    I didn't know that Maryland has a dog program to detect AFB in hives. They claim that this one is the only one certified to do so.

    Yes, you can change one and it adjusts the other.
  11. Re: Dumbest thing you ever bought for beekeeping ?

    Glock, if I may interject here, in Photobucket there's an Edit function when you click on a photo that allows you to reduce the size of the image. I just went back and changed mine to a width of 180...
  12. Re: Dumbest thing you ever bought for beekeeping ?

    I have a shiny white frame rack too. Like a few other items, it still seems like a good idea but it never quite makes it out of my tool bucket.
  13. Re: Dumbest thing you ever bought for beekeeping ?

    This is kind of an unsettling thread as you all are bringing up things I had conveniently forgotten. :) My $80 Burgess fogger purchased from Cabela's in 2003 and never used...

    Re: Outdoor chest freezer?

    It's all white interior semi-gloss. Pretty sure it's never going to see a beehive but it's evidence that I have some. :)

    Why thank you.

    I have to note however that a flow that fails to materialize can be anticipated and the proper steps can be taken to mitigate the impact. That would suggest that it's not a true...

    You have a very nice website. You would enjoy keeping a couple of beehives, and would probably be good at it. You might want to post this in the "FREE-To be given away" forum that can be found...

    That box is 12-14 years old at least. Maybe older if it's one I bought from the guy who got me started. This is the high desert. Not a lot of precipitation or humidity. That box will stay together...
