    Re: Best materials for smoker fuel

    I also used sycamore leaves. I read that it had some effect on Varroa.
    It is a very harsh smoke. Coughing up a lung isn't fun.

    Zeolite pros&cons

    I was surfing and found Zeolite. A volcanic rock that absorbs moisture.
    Has anyone used it in the winter on top of the inner cover or on the
    bottom board tray. Are there any studies with beehives?

    Re: Best materials for smoker fuel

    I like pine needles with Stag Horn Sumac(not Winged Sumac).
    Sumac has a nice thick smoke. I'm also a beer maker and I was
    thinking about throughing a few hop pellets in.

    Re: My recipe/method for sugar blocks

    Sounds Great
    I only have a few hives. Have you made smaller batches?
    Have you checked the pH level?

    Re: Bees favorite plant

    Is there a quality rating for different flower’s nectar?
    If they like it does it mean it has a better nutritional value?
