Welcome to BeeSource!
I see them. Guessing it's a setting in your computer
Same here. I purchased mine through a dealer in Ohio and used it for the first time this fall. Problem free and easy. Really impressed how well it worked.
And the fact it is American made makes me...
I do not trust any chemical that kills a plant. I personally believe it will be unhealthy for honey bees.
It is nice of Asplundh to let you know about their work. I had one of their people come to...
Good luck with your bees, when you get them. A lot of people on here started without bees, so you aren't all that far behind.
Join a local beekeeping group, find a mentor and read all you can. You...
Nice looking wax. What do you use to filter it. I am still looking for that one thing that works well everytime.
My experience with unwired mediums is an occasional blowout while extracting them. It is definitely time consuming but I will wire all of mine from now on.
If you are using the frames for brood,...
7 hives about 80 feet away in the back yard. I live on 3 1/2 acres and am planning out yards in the spring.
Welcome to the forum. Glad you are here.
I used Lauri's recipe last year and it worked well. I downsized the batch as I didn't need the 25lb batch size for 3 hives. I will make a few more this year as some hives really
ate them up.
I can hear my girls screaming and shaking from here! Scary.
Do you treat that one naturally, with OA, Apivar, Apistan, Hop Guard?! Or ALL?
I paid the $15 co-pay for mine with the coupon. Without the coupon it would have been $150 with insurance. I too got them just in case.
I was wondering the same thing about installation timing. I think I will put mine on this week to avoid the holiday rush :rolleyes:
You cannot sell that honey. It has been contaminated. I wouldn't even save it for myself or family, and I'm a tightwad.
Cut your loss and chalk it up as a lesson learned. I too would not feed it...
I live in Ohio in the Southeast quadrant. We have clay type soil I the area I live in. Temperature averages are in the 80 degrees in the summer to below 0 at times in winter.
I have seen more SHB...
Welcome to Beesource from Ohio. Glad you joined us.
I hope they determine the responsible person and prosecute to the fullest extent possible. Then give the perpetrator the maximum sentence. But that's just me.
Yes very good documentary on the honey bee plight. I watched it about a year ago and have it on cue to watch it again.
I think the fact that Maxant got on here and stepped up speaks volumes for the company and product. I'm glad I just bought the 3100P. Used it for the first time and love it.
Good luck to the OP. I...
I think you need to attend a beginners beekeeping class, obtain a mentor or do a lot of self study and pay attention to the details.
This is the third thread you have started concerning honey...
That's pretty cool. I have been thinking about getting a drone with a camera. Seems like it would be fun and advantageous.
I already have the apiary :D
I use them all the time :D
Neat factoid. Thanks for posting it.
I made some shims for my hives in my woodshop and I placed them just under the inner cover so that I could put a sugar brick on top of the top hive body frames.
I am going to try a few quilt boxes...
I like that joint (Yea, I know it sounds bad). I think it would be a very strong one and the fact no exposed ends sounds even better.
My problem is that I cannot find lumber in my area that makes...
I have attended the conference the last two years. Definitely worth the price of admission, and then some. I will be attending this year as well.
Should be a good session of informative bee topics.
