Freeze- store in sealed trailers
125 degrees taking about 3 days for a crystallized barrel to liquify.
Make some quick splits outta your new yard???
After cells are in, 21 day check to make sure she has a good pattern, "proven queens". After that point it's just rense and repeat all season.
Very well said. I see this after the bees go south for the winter and when they come back north. Down south I'm instructed to knock them down to singles and feed feed feed and keep tossing brood in...
Gee mark all the time taken to post you coulda had fifty boxes built. Lol
I do the same thing in a sense. Once the hives get up from down south, let them lay a full 2nd box then excluder and shake the bees down. Essentially what your doing is make a huge population for the...
The quickest way to nip the problem in the butt, get all the brood outta the top box, the one you said is full of honey. Pop that and put a empty
Box under it. Otherwise, remove excluders if any or...
What he didn't tell you is you'll be getting a bill in the mail in two-three weeks.
So I could do a really good job taking care of 500 hives or do a ok job at 1000. Really good job as in monitoring mite levels and treating when needed, kill swarm
Cells consistantly, check queens...
Nope that bs "bee shield" product is just another snake oil.
Try rolling wax on verses dipping?
10 frames will work. However the more hives you have the more of your precious time it takes up. 9 frames will not only make uncapping easier, removing the bees from the supers will be easier as...
I also heard there are two beeks in flordia not even bothering moving hives to the Dakotas. Couldn't make enough honey to cover expenses. Decided to chase
Flows down there. How long till corn and...
Then as soon as this hive gets afb or efb every other hive in range gets it.
Your housing in the background?
The hives I work look fine. Almonds wasn't bad, in and out quick no hives got stuck there for weeks, waiting for them to get back from Michigan. Rest of the hives are in honey production mode and...
The minute they open the borders to canada from us. I'm changing my business plan and going on my own. 2000 packages right to Canada.
We were grafting between 1400-1800 cells every four days during queen production time. Each cell gets a prime. Much easier on the larvae in my opinion. You don't have to struggle getting it off the...
Refer and store in 53ft semi trailers.
Always inspect nucs before purchasing. One frame of brood is ridiculous.
Adds loading. Have to wait longer.
Umm people pay more than 10/hr??? I need a raise sigh .
Work for someone for a season. You'll know if it's right for you or not after 80+hour work weeks or 10hour + of scraping boxes.
