    Re: Upset/Disappointed/Confused/etc.

    Not sure about your situation, but I've had a couple this year take off like you described due to pressure put on them by ants.
    Gonna have to build myself some better stands.

    Re: Insects feel pain?

    I can't wait for spring to get here so we can get back to beekeeping & instead of philosophy.
    From the looks of this thread, it's gonna be a loooong winter.

    Re: Best robber screen designs?

    Yeah in front of entrance reducer.
    I use push pins to hold it in place.
    Even use it with Mouse Guards made of the same hardware cloth.

    Re: Bomb Cyclone to hit US next week

    Wrapped my hives today, this is the first time I've wrapped mine.
    Last winter was hard. Trying to fare better this year.
    I think we are in for another repeat like last year.
    Good luck fellow beeks!

  10. Re: Pros and cons on Sharing a bee yard with another beekeeper

    Personally, I wouldn't do it.
    This is a big generalization, but most people suck.
    There is always the chance the other beekeeper will dip into your hives if he needs something, eg: Queen, drawn...
  11. Re: How many of you started with just one hive?

    I did when I started.
    I got lucky that it made it through the winter because of rookie mistakes & pipe dreams of being treatment free.
    Really if you can, start with two.
    It increases you chances...

    Bees bringing in kill

    Here is a new one for me.
    I was out at the hives putting on mouse guards using hardware cloth & it slowed them down enough for me to observe a behavior I've never seen before. They were hauling in...

    Re: Could winter bees already be here?

    Noticing the same here.
    The goldenrod is about cashed out, leaves on trees are changed & dropping, winter is right around the corner and the bees know it.
    I think we are in store for another...

    Re: Mann Lake's Pro Winter Patties

    I used these last year.
    Was separated with wax paper and the consistency I got was good.
    The bees took them well. I gave a full patty at a time, unlike pollen patties which I portion control due to...

    Re: Hunters: anyone use electronic ears?

    I use sound supressors/silencers on most of my weapons.
    Legal to own and hunt with here in KY.
    They are worth the bit of extra paper & wait.
    They make shooting much more enjoyable, reduce recoil,...
