    Re: Choices for wedge top bars please.

    I run cut comb, so my first choice is wedge top. Pull the wedge off turn perpendicular and nail on. You now have a starter strip for natural comb. :) Saves money on foundation. :) :)

    Re: Footwear Do's and Don'ts:

    Re: To Much Honey

    Too much isn't a bad thing. Your girls will eat what they need, and take care of what needs to be taken care of. :)

    Re: Expensive BWeaver Queens

    Exactly! Even Latshaw has reasonable prices. 4 queens for $2000 ($500 each). I won't be paying $3000 or even $2000 for a queen. They do make the others look cheap, though.

    Re: NUC sales, medium vs deep

    I assume you are talking bee-wise, not equipment-wise.

    As Michael stated, the equipmet cost is about the same. What's different is the amount of bees.
