Thanks, That is what I was hoping.
I've got about 20 frames of combs from a dead out last year. The moths got to the comb before I could do anything with it. Some of it is worse than others, but overall the combs don't look too bad....
On the contrary. Watching this show will enable me to point out the flaws they were showing when someone asks me what I think about AHB, and quote the show or other sources.
I started beekeeping last year and I started with a May swarm of carniolans last year that never got themselves queenright, and they just withered away. I also got 2 nucs with I believe commercially...
Shortly after 8 pm EST and there is a show called "modern day monsters" on the history channel right now talking about africanized honey bees. Try to catch it if you can.
I read somewhere that if you can find a plantain leaf and chew on it then cover the sting with the wet leaves, it'd take the "sting" away. I dunno if stings just don't bother me that much, or if the...
I made a small nuc a couple of weeks ago with a frame of bees and capped brood, a new queen and 2 frames of pollen and honey, plus another frame of bees shaken off into the nuc. I also added 2...
I found a great article about bees and the way they use light.
"Each bee on her return is followed by three or four companions . . . how they do it...
In E. TN, yesterday I bought 4# bags for $1.89 store brand. The 25# bag was 5 or 6 cents more per pound.
4# bags make it easy. 2 4# bags per gallon of water for 1:1.
Yep the size changed, and the price went up!
I wasn't actually a pilot in a blackhawk. I was a crewchief. However, I needed a screen name for my first message board which dealt with Honda Pilots. The 4-wheeled ATV variety made in 1989 and 1990...
What can I use to keep ants out of my top feeders?
If anyone knows where I can get a pound or two of the blue honey, I'd love to try it!
I might be interested. Do you have any more information about it?

Welcome to the site. I'm in Oak Ridge, and I just started this year, but I've been bitten by the bug bad! I've been relying heavily on an experienced beek from Oliver Springs.
Maybe invert the brood boxes? Get the cluster closer to the feed, and make them work across the new frames to get in and out of the hive.
It might work?
A civil suit that covers pain and suffering will go a long way towards covering your losses.
An unsecured load that leaves the operator's vehicle is the operator's fault PERIOD.
Go after them...
I have looked, but can't find any plans for a hive top feeder. Any suggestions?
5-10 drop total, or 5-10 drops per frame? And is having old comb necessary? I've just started this year and don't have any old comb.
Sorry for being a dummy, but I've never set out a swarm trap...
How much LGO is good to use when baiting a trap?
I hope you daughter recovers quickly!
On another note. The title of this thread brought back a memory.
My mom's family is VERY country. Think outhouses and wells with pump handles. Anyway, here...
Reduce the entrance on the weaker hive to 2-3 bee widths, so they can defend the entrance easier.
It tasted like chocolate cake. The one with the chocolate chips was better than the one I made with toffee almonds. To add a little more chocolate flavor I used a wooden spoon handle to poke a hole...
Made the cake tonight as a treat for myself and my son (one each). I did reduce the oil from 3 tbsp down to 2 tbsp, and may even try one tbsp next time. My son about flipped when the cake came out of...
