    Re: OUCH

    Could be a number of things happening with your hive. That is a pretty hefty hive and a queen that can do that is a good queen in my opinion. Ask yourself if you want a very productive queen that...

    Re: Honey extractor

    I have the 3100P and like it, but if you have a number of hives, it takes a long time. If you spin deeps, its not great. I have been spinning 4 hives worth and wishing I had the larger maxant...

    Too late for split July 16th?

    I am going to have time for a split on July 16th. This I want to for the fall flow, usually its quite strong goldenrod and aster. I have seen a serious upsurge in my honey sales and anticipate...

    That shuts me up!!! Makes my nose hurt just thinking about it.
  6. Re: What would you do....on inspection situation

    You all are lucky. My veil came apart a few days ago and I got tagged 3 times in the back of the neck. Three nice welts back there. I would have squished soon as possible on the chest.
  7. Re: Hive check report - queens shutting down already??

    I think the flow is either over here or a trickle. Not much of any rain. Milkweed is in bloom but looks weak. Not the usual large number of bees working it. I looked at one tree I thought was...
  8. Hive check report - queens shutting down already??

    Checked my girls today and found smallish patches of capped brood, not entire frames filled. Looked like all five of my queens had begun to slow down. I have not seen this behavior this early. Anyone...

    Re: How to remove bees from pine tree

    Good points. The entrance is 3-4 feet high is all, no ladder needed at least. When my uncle mows the lawn they didnt like that and stung him a few times. I think he got up close to them. I will...

    Re: How to remove bees from pine tree

    This is a MONSTER pine tree and cutting it really is not an option. Ill google a Hogan trap, as I have not heard of it. I have heard of a trap out, but don't really know what it is. Ill google that...

    How to remove bees from pine tree

    My aunt had a swarm move into their pine tree a year ago. They got stung and now want me to take out the bees. I know there is a bee vac of sorts but also know its not the gentlest of machines. The...

    Re: Anyone else see bees on Milkweed?

    Typical for me is to see them on the milkweed around July 4th where my hives are. Clover is usually going and seems basswood might be going about same time. Bees are real real thick on the milkweed...

    Re: What Price Should I Sell A Pint of Honey For

    I think I am undercharging. 15.00 for a quart mason jar. Just about sold out of last falls goldenrod/aster honey.

    Re: Requeening

    I wouldn't kill the queen. You had a hive die right? Use a box or two from that hive, take your new queen, a few frames and bees from the one existing hive and make a small hive/NUC. IF you are in...
  20. Re: Can you Diagnose a Laying Worker Hive? Pictures.

    I'm going to take a stab at it and say you have a queen that is not mated well and are close to a drone laying queen scenario. Late April seems a bit early for mating flights. At least one of your...

    OR... wait until a few days before basswood blooms then take the queen and one box to a new location. Leave the rest. The nearly broodless hive will make honey like crazy. If it re-queens itself...

    Re: Rosa Multiflora aka Japanese rose

    Looks quite similar actually. The bees don't forage that much on this tree though. My guess is this is a weird year and they are forced to work these roses more than usual. I have also seen red...
