    Re: Absolutely amazing!!!

    The opposing positions really do not matter to me anymore as I try to move beyond that. It is not a hill worth dying on. I intend my posts to be read and enjoyed by others who believe as I do. As...

    Re: Going cold turkey, getting cold feet

    Only "guard" going in my hives is a mouse guard. If they die they die, but when they live, they get tough! Keep them clean !!

    Re: Absolutely amazing!!!

    I guess I would say that years do not always equal knowledge. If I find a better way to do something, I am always willing to change. If a new invention comes along, that make my life more...

    Re: Absolutely amazing!!!

    Honey Super Cell. For faster regression. Plastic frame, already drawn. Pricey, but effective.

    Re: Absolutely amazing!!!

    I don't even talk about it any more (treatment free). Their minds are closed. I backed off the "doin the club thing", because all they talk about is mites. I am so tired of hearing about mites and...

    Re: What have you learned this year?

    After my third year on small cell, I have learned that the weather is the biggest factor in determining the amount of honey produced. I don't worry about mites, just rain or no rain. I hope next...
  7. Re: From treated comb to treatment free, how to?

    Hi lakebilly:
    Far from an expert here but will take a shot. Are you planning on running an unlimited brood nest? If your queen has access to all of the hive boxes she could conceivably lay in...

    Boy, do I feel . . . . . . .

    stupid. That explains it. I had just never noticed the black frames before and assumed they were something new. My fault. Sorry. I use Honey Super Cell for a few brood cycles. Then adding in...

    Plastic Frames and Regression

    Mr. Parker,
    While reading your blog, I noticed the Mann Lake pf105 frames. I was not aware that there was any plastic frame advertised as 4.9 except for Honey Super Cell which I have been...

    Re: do you have a Facebook bee page ???

    I'm wondering how you got a Facebook account without your actual name. Every time I tried that it kicked me out, so I just gave up. What did you do? Thanks
  12. Re: Silly HSC regression "what if" question...

    Teacher, is this a trick question?
    Oh, ok. Well, if given the opportunity to lay in anything but HSC, I would say they would go that way. It takes them long enough to fall in love with the stuff...

    Re: First stings!

    Hey,
    I think it always hurts a little, :pinch:but don't be afraid of taking a few, it is actually good for you. I don't believe that it would be a good idea to get a lot at one time though. The...
  14. Re: Plastic frames with foundation questions

    Afternoon:
    I personally have good success with the Mann Lake plastic. Just ordered another 200 frames. They take to them quickly, and they hold up well. I have either the Pf-120's or HSC as my...

    Maybe you have heard this one already. For those of you who have not, enjoy this amusing little story. I hope this works.

  18. Re: How Long to Feed? New Package, New Foundation

    Hello
    I usually feed new packages until I see pollen, and then pull it off, but the problem this year is starting out just like last year. Raining every 3 days and/or lasting for 3 days. In...

    Re: Introducing package bees to scf

    How interesting it is to see the different responses to plastic versus wax or foundationless. It just varies so much. It seems there really is no wrong way to do it, just use what you like, and it...
  22. Re: Kelleys now sells foundationless frames

    Contacted Kelley's about getting 100 of the medium frames with the wedge. The price of $68.00 for the 100 was not bad, but the shipping was $54.00. :eek: I think I will be making my own. Just a...
  23. Re: Honey Super Cell / bridge comb mess

    Hmmm? Very interesting. I just installed 7 hives with HSC, and have never had any problems with comb mess. I love the product, and also agree that the PF-120's are a fantastic choice.

    My hives so far have made it through this harsh Iowa winter, so I hope that they will make it the rest of the way. With the packages that I have ordered this year, I will have 13 hives. ...
