    Re: Bees not touching Sourwood SE TN

    In periods of extreme heat and little rain like we are having, trees are conserving nutrients for themselves so to speak. We are getting some cool weather this weekend and that should generate a good...
  2. Re: Built up swarm being agressive. Should I requeen?

    IMO you would be better off to re-Queen by making a few splits out of the hive. The smaller numbers would help with acceptance and you would end up with more hives. The more testy the bees, the...
  3. Re: Need a new queen breeder. Any suggestions?

    I'm nearby and having a hard time getting Carni's built up enough to catch May honey flow. The Carni influence I've tried don't build up in time and then they are ready to swarm. Sure love the way...
  4. Re: Who uses a vaporizer with oxalic acid as their main treatment practice? Please h

    I find that it works very well and according to studies I've read is easier on Queens than for formic acid

    I treat around thanksgiving during low brood period and usually only have to treat once

    Re: Trouble hive with video

    Spotty brood pattern with drones scattered around looks like the queen is failing to me. I would replace her before laying workers take over, provided of course that you don't have a supercedure...

    Re: Bee Yard Question

    In looking at your photos more closely, I would also recommend making it bigger. Looks like you are planning on a couple of hives, make sure you leave room to work in there as the cows will want to...

    Re: Bee Yard Question

    Make sure you use some sturdy posts, cows are very curious and love to rub up against things. They especially like exploring something different in the pasture. Keep in mind how sturdy you will need...

    Are you guys putting these sugar bricks on top of the inner cover hole or making them thin enough to go under the inner cover? Thanks

    Re: Shastina Boxes

    Shastina Bee Girls (if you don't need a pallet sized order) just recently offered a free shipping deal in November. I ordered quite a few hive bodies, covers, etc due to the price and was very...
  10. Re: Help me price this bid (pumpkin pollination)

    DPBsbees is right. I used to have pumpkin growers all around, had to move my hives to keep them from getting killed. The pesticide spraying is unreal with pumpkins.

    I stopped by and talked with them once and they are nice folks. While they do not directly answer questions about their bees and woodenware I do suspect they are a distributor for Rossmans. They told...

    Re: New to the Atlanta area

    Fatbeeman is a great source for queens, yes we have varroa and more than our share of SHB. Also, it's a long time before bees have anything to forage on from fall to spring, make sure they have...
  17. Re: Frustrated with VSH and looking for suggestions

    I've used VSH queens from a few different breeders and have had mixed results. Most have been fairly gentle but have not produced near the honey crop as others and they seem slow to build up in...
  18. Re: Is $370 good price for 2 deeps full of bees and 2 honey supers?

    Just my opinion but it sounds like zero honey in the supers so your just paying for the bees and used equipment. I would pass and for the money line up a few nucs in the spring. Unless you really...

    Re: SHB Help

    Put the frames in a plastic bag and seal up. Place in the freezer for 24-48 hours and then remove from the plastic and place frames back in the hive. Bees will clean out the dead SHB larvae.

    Re: Sumac Honey?

    I think it's got a great taste. I've never had it pure but it's heavily mixed in with our summer honey and gives a good flavor.
