    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...
  2. 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.
  3. Re: Is pigeon mountain apiaries owned by pigeon mountain trading company

    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: OVA Treatment now!

    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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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: Uncapping Punch

    We used the Mann Lake one yesterday for the first time, very effective and quick. Seems to work better going from side to side rather then the length of the frame to get the edges and also to keep...

    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.

    Big swarm, big mess, need advice

    I picked up a swarm yesterday that had actually moved into some old hive bodies laying around. The lady that called thought it was neat for the first month to have them flying around until the amount...

    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.

    Maxant is top quality people and products. I got a 1400 extractor last year and Can't wait to use my new bottling tank this year.
  19. Taking honey from 2nd hive body mid-summer

    I currently run double deeps and shallows for honey. Wondering if I can safely take the outer frame of honey from the top deep and replace with foundation. Would be doing this in July to allow for...

    Re: Honey Extractors

    I think most times we run 15-20 minutes on ours, starting slow and building up to prevent blow outs and to drain them real good. So based on this, you could extract between 3 and 4 supers in an hour...

    Re: Rossman Apiaries

    I wonder if they are a distributor for Dadant? I know they sell queens and packages, and make their own woodenware but other items I have noticed appear similar as well

    Re: Should I split this hive?

    I would think about doing a cut down split. Move the queen out into a new deep with some brood and nurse bees along with some honey and pollen and let her build up again. The original hive can now...
  24. Re: Over Wintered Laying Worker...Remedy?

    I guess when i read over things and started thinking it made more sense to just move on. After all, I'm not killing the bees, I'm actually reinforcing existing hives and freeing up some drawn comb to...
  25. Re: Over Wintered Laying Worker...Remedy?

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm doing a few splits tomorrow so I think this hive will just get shaken out and I will use the drawn comb in the splits. The remaining bees can just find a new home...
