    Re: Wood Pellets for smoker fuel?

    All we use are pellets. $4.99 a 40lb bag at Lowes. Look for broken bags for 50% off.

    Re: Seized $2.5 Million Chinese Honey

    Jim this falls under customs of course and not DEA. Certainly Customs officials have a lot on their plate. I recall a similar article a couple years back where they arrested several foreign...

    So don't they watch "Shark Tank" in Australia? What would Mr. Wonderful think?

    That's not small cell foundation. I suspect that to offer small cell sheets like their Ritecell would only undermine the sales of their plastic small cell frames and their significant investment in...

    Re: Tulip Poplar Honey

    We also managed about 30 yards on sourwood but those days are long gone in that area I'm told they cut almost everything down so they could plant more pine. Really a shame.

  14. Re: Great Randy Oliver Post from Bee-L on Honey Bees and Smoke

    In my area we tend to use little or no smoke when pulling honey supers. We pull honey with the vast majority of it un-capped because it's so very dry here. Open honey like that can definitely become...

    Re: Packing organic honey without certification

    I'm 100% with Rader.
