    Ladies and gentlemen, please keep the thread on-topic, and refrain from analyzing motives. Thanks. :)

    Re: Pigeon Mountain issue

    Imo, that wouldn't be appropriate, or good business practice at all. A company shouldn't need to expect that its customers will be spreading bad news about them, in order to provide good service. ...

    Re: Avoid Cheeseman and BeeBabys.com

    That would probably be a question best-asked in the general bee forum.:)

    Re: Question about feeding

    Gosh- it's been several years ago that I read it. I'll see if I can find it again and let you know. If I'm not mistaken, it was per quart.

    Hehe- whadayaknow- I found an old thread here that...

    I have hot bees, so I always gear up to the gills, lol.

    Re: Question about feeding

    I read on an organic beekeeping site (a few years ago) that you can also add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to lower pH. I never tried it, but I think I would choose that route over adding...

    Re: Dealings with Long Creek Apiaries

    I would say that there is plenty of discussion in this thread for potential buyers to beware. If you want to take the chance with your money, then do so. If you do take your chance, and wind up a...

    Re: How many hives per acre?

    Well, that's hard to say, but since bees will typtically fly up to two miles away for forage (and further if need be), I doubt it would really matter that much.

    Re: Alternative Hive Designs Wanted

    Does a one-story ranch style hive count as alternative? :D

    Re: Warm weather - stimulate bood producton?

    Frankly, I'm not inclined to stimulate brood production, even in my relatively mild climate area. I'm pretty much a believer that nature should be taken into account, and the unpredictability of...

    Re: Statin Drugs

    I've never taken any of them, and don't take any drugs at all, but a friend of mine had terrible problems with one of the statin drugs a couple of years ago, and stopped taking them. They were...

    Re: multiple eggs per cell

    First question that comes to my mind is do you have a laying worker? Seems really odd to me. Have you seen the queen?

    Re: Feral Bee clustering behaviour?

    Paul - as of a few years ago, you could send a sample of bees to Texas A&M for genetic testing to make sure they weren't AHB's. I sent a sample because of the agressiveness of my bees, and they...

    Re: Straw idea

    I'd personally prefer to use some type of foam or another product which wouldn't be prone to breaking down organically. The last thing I would want in my hive is a potential compost heap. ;)

    Re: Just a thought

    I don't worry too much about others labeling me. Many here would probably consider me a *beehaver*, because I don't agressively manage my bees. I let them manage themselves, and I oversee their...

    Re: Stuck frames

    I would wait for warm (bordering on hot) weather, so that the wax and comb structure will soften a little, making prying easier.

    Something else you might consider, depending on how "handy" you...

    Re: very new to beekeeping, some questions

    Agree with Michael- I wouldn't consider putting a hive of bees so close to an animal pen. Bees can be unpredictable and moody. ;)
