Thats it, I appreciate your help.
Thanks for the link, but I was wanting to find the thread where he went in depth on his system of raising and overwintering nucs.
In the past I remember reading a large thread that Mr. Palmer posted explaining his nuc rearing procedure in great detail. I have tried but I cannot seem to find it again, Does anybody on here have a...
Works even better when you can get between $8 and $10 per pound from direct sales.
Here's the link to a "photo tutorial" on making your own frames. I did it with just a table saw (a batch of around 700 frames), but a router table would make it a lot easier (and safer).
I'm wanting to get a mid sized (20-72) frame electric extractor, within driving distance of 300 or 400 miles of east tennessee.
Bees trapped in greenhouse... suggestions?

(sorry just had to say that :)
In all seriousness though, from my experience working in greenhouses, (the farm i work on raises...

Does it make a difference to have your plastic foundation coated, and if so how do you go about doing it yourself?
My farm is a mid sized vegetable "truck" farm. We raise Certified Naturally Grown vegetables to sell at area farmers markets. This year was the first year that I had any extra honey after what I ate,...
Hey folk, I did not mean anything insulting by what I asked, just wondering if anybody had been to any of them and what they thought about it. Pardon me if I wasn't politically correct.
Has anybody on here ever taken any of Fatbeeman's classes . what do ya'll think about them.
Hey, the more the merrier right?
I have a hive that I started last year from a 5 frame nuc, this spring it was fixing to swarm so I made 3 splits out of it (I left 10 frames in the parent hive). Since then I have preformed a cut...
I made a 3 way split on a hive that was about to swarm 2 or 3 weeks ago. 2 of them in the hive body's and another in a 5 from nuc. One of the hive body splits aperently was unsuccessful in raising a...
We have 25,000 plants out this spring. See bees on them all of the time.
Did an inspection of my hives today. One hive had swarmed, and two others that have swarm cell's built, I split them and wished that I had checked my hives 4 or 5 days sooner.
When is the proper time to "preform" a cutdown split.
I made my first split today. Was wondering when that I should check on it, and what I should look for.
Bought 4 double deep hives yesterday. Got them hauled up the mountain and set up. Really looking forward to this season. Hopefully I'll turn at least a small honey crop his year.
The hive is weak (or at least weaker than my other hive) located in full sun (when the sun is shining) deep sandy loam topsoil and since the hive is in East Tennessee this spring it is very very damp.
I live in the mountains of East Tennessee. Fields mixed in with trees everywhere (mostly trees, predominantly oak). I was wondering where would be the best bet to put a swarm trap?
