    Re: Pest control sprayed my trap out

    As a pest control person myself, this should have never been done. Our company walks away from honeybees and contacts beekeepers to get them. I am a beekeeper but I do not do cut outs, though I do...

    This will be my first year using it but from what I have read and watched on The Fat Bee Mans website it works better than mineral oil and does not hurt the bees or brood at all. I am going to use...

    Re: How Long Can I store my Supers

    I just put them on card board and stack them nicely and put a top cover on top to keep anything from getting in. It takes me about a week to finally get all my supers off. So far haven't had problems.

    Re: Removing bees from honey supers?

    I had read that on Bush's site as well. For some reason I thought this would for sure cause a frenzy. They do seem really busy and are filling up supers quickly so I guess that constitutes a flow. I...

    Also I am curious about the best way to start doing foundationless if you already are using foundation? Can you start mixing them in with each other or dedicate a hive?

    I purchased ML budget hive bodies and was very surprised at the quality. A few knots but nothing that affected the quality. For the price you can't beat ML.
