  1. Missouri - can comb from failed TBH be kept for bees next spring?

    Greetings! First year beek from St. Louis area. Our lone TBH failed in late August after our apparently improperly mated Russian queen turned drone-layer, and we didn't catch the problem until it...
  2. Re: Greetings from Illiois - Always looking for honey

    Re: Dealings with Long Creek Apiaries

    I would LOVE to be able to take advantage of that deal, but just can't make the drive down there right now. Really - these bees are high quality. I'm amazed at how far my package of Russians have...

    Re: Dealings with Long Creek Apiaries

    David,
    I saw on your Long Creek Apiary website the message about queens from last week being "drone layers". Being new to beekeeping, I had to look up what that means! I can see through the...

    Re: Dealings with Long Creek Apiaries

    I'm wishing us both good weather, Mr. Winters! We've been having horrible, unseasonable, unpredictable weather here in Missouri as well, and having a farm, we are familiar with and can sympathize...

    Re: Dealings with Long Creek Apiaries

    Mr. Winters,
