  3. Re: Super Thick honey foam during processing

    When I extracted most was capped, but some was uncapped. I don't remember the exact % of uncapped, but I try not to take the uncapped when I harvest the honey. If a frame isn't mostly capped I tend...
  4. Re: Super Thick honey foam during processing

    Follow up question. I'm going to get the moisture content checked, but I do "smell" a slight "sour" or alcohol type smell. I've never had fermentation in honey before but could it be that? How do...

    Re: Not sure what killed my hive???

    Not sure what killed my hive???

    I just discovered a hive loss at my bee yard in Clinton, MS. Very curious, though, as there are no honey stores, very little nectar stores, less than a dozen dead bees, two capped queen cells,...

    I'm a very inexperienced BeeKeeper. I've been "tightning" up my hives in preparation for winter. From the stores collected it looks like my area had a decent flow this fall. I've reduced my hives...

    For what's it worth, I had setup some "wet" frames after extracting too close to one of my hives and you would have thought I started world war III. There were bees everywhere and for some reason...
