    Re: NO HONEY EVER

    Re: Plastic jars for honey

    I always have a supply of this jar because you can fit 2 in a small priority box--in a quart zip lock bag first and extra tape around the edges of the box. Makes a great gift and low shipping price.

    Re: 5 vs. 10 frame box for trap

    Someone posted recently that he puts out whatever extra equipment he has. That is great advice.
    For my area, I don't know why, but I get more swarms to 5 frame deeps than anything else. I've used...

    Re: calking up the entrance to a wall

    Thanks treebee, that's what we will do. I need to ask my friend again, I thought he told me the guy opened up the wall, thus the mess. I bet he didn't get all the comb out. When we get rid of these...

    New resident at my bee yard

    I and my phone are not the greatest picture takers, but this little guy was next to a stack of empty mediums I keep at my yard in a shrubby area. I had taken off a lid and the top box, then...

    I have bait boxes within feets of each other. I just had a swarm move into a 5 frame nuk bait box right next to an established hive. As it's swarm season, it's likely I will get one in the other box...
