    Re: Oh my GOSH! Massive hive removal!!

    I'll do one for 250 but it would have to be rather simple. Most of mine are between 500 and 600. As for the people who think it should be free: I try to educate them on why they need someone who...

    Re: Buying hives

    Be sure they get inspected prior to the sale. It is illegal to sell without a prior inspection. Inspection services are free, so there is no reason to not have it done. PM me for info. I am an...

    Re: Neighbors destroying colonies

    That's what I was thinking, as well. I don't see any real video evidence. That could have been anyone spraying that.

    Re: Neighbors destroying colonies

    The kid: Why would the size of the lot matter? Bees fly. What matters is the amount of forage in a 5-mile radius. Or am I missing something?

    Kelley Foundationless Frames

    I recently ordered some shallow foundationless "F" frames from Kelley and they came in last week. I've assembled maybe 50 or so of them.

    The frames are well-made though the wood is quite soft....

    My packages arrived late on Friday, the 5th. I wish Kelley had better communication. If they would add a tracking number immediately to the online record of your transaction, that would be a big...

    Wiring Foundationless Deep Frames

    I use two strands of wire on my medium frames, using all the available holes. However, my deep frames have 4 holes on each endbar. In the past, I've used up all of those holes, as well. However, I am...

    Re: Frame wiring

    I run foundationless, so my wiring is more to help the comb hold up during extraction, rather than keeping the foundation flat. So far, I've been using all the holes in the end bars. But now I am...

    Re: bees became mean

    They're likely being harassed. In addition to the critters already mentioned, check for ants. You could try moving the hive to another apiary to see if that makes a difference. -james wagner

    I agree with the other responses. Please post your location. If I were to do the job, it would not cost a few hundred, but nowhere near a thousand.....UNLESS you poisoned them first. You should be...

    If they are IN the structure, it is no longer a swarm. Thus, you are looking at a cut-out situation, not a swarm retrieval. Go to youtube and look up "Jpthebeeman". Otherwise, defer to someone with...
