    Re: Why the dark honey this year?

    Some years certain flowering plants will produce nectar and some years other nectar producing plants do and the others don't or not as much. So each year can be different, especially if you only take...
  2. Re: OSBA Fall Convention November 1st. - Michael Palmer and Sue Cobey

    Nice lineup of speakers. Wish I could be there.
  3. Re: To Feed or Not to feed ...that is the Question!

    There is no time for very much real honey production in the Ithaca area. There may be some, but not much. Ask Peter Borst what he would do.
  4. Re: To Feed or Not to feed ...that is the Question!

    Determine whether your hive(s) are heavy enough, meaning have enough stores, to keep them from starving. If your hive(s) is/are two deeps you may want to add a medium depth super and feed until they...
  5. Re: Is it true that bees only bring in Pollen when they have a queen?

    Hive that don't have queens are really good at collecting pollen and nectar too. I have had queenless colonies that were really productive. I figure that the adult bees don't have anything to do but...

    Re: Is it to late to treat?

    It can be when temps are hot. It is currently not the ideal time to use MAQS. Thought maybe that's one of your best choices. That and Apivar.

    Re: Is it to late to treat?

    Treat these hives now and maybe, just maybe, they might get through the Winter. Don't, and chances are, they won't. Unless you are determined to be a TF beekeeper. Then, if you have foresworn...

    Re: Is it to late to treat?

    W/ mite counts that high there probably isn't going to be much more honey production anyway, so strip those honey supers off.

    Re: Have you ever proselytized for beekeeping?

    And when feeding dry sugar, 5 lbs is a good amount to feed and it's already measured.

    Re: Is it to late to treat?

    It isn't too late a date, but it may be too late for that hive, w/ that many mites in a sugar shake. "Dead hive walking.", as Larry Connor calls them.
  12. Re: Treated with MAQS, mite count still high, now what?

    Don, don't you think that w/ treatment recommendation numbers like that and the wide variation in sample result numbers that even finding one mite in a sample suggests one aught to treat? And if I...

    Re: Fumeboard product questions?

    Since there isn't much to the board that could go wrong, I would suspect the potency of the material you applied to them. And how much you applied.
  14. Re: Would you B interested and How much would you pay for a 18/9 extractor kit??

    Apparently not. Not w/ that kind of attitude. How much do you KNOW about Business? What's your profit margin?

    Re: Bad Commercial Beeks

    So why doesn't your name or my name show up on that list? Are we fools for not participating? I could use some extra funding? But I just figured that my losses were due to something I did. Maybe that...

    Re: Tax Numbers and accouting

    Sure. And I have no reason to think we aren't. I never collected sales tax when I sold used bee equipment. I don't know anyone who ever has. I don't collect sales tax when I sell jars. Who does? Now...

    I don't know that anyone other than BMAC collects sales tax on nucs in NYS. Call Wixson Honey Co. and ask Jerry. Or call BetterBee and ask them what they do. If selling nucs requires Sales Tax...

    Re: Fumeboard product questions?

    Beego kept in the container it came in, not left out in the sun all year, will work just fine one year to the next. Pads don't need residue removed from them.
  19. Re: going to try to remove bees off the supers with my handheld blower

    Very true. Fume boards work best on fully capped supers of honey.

    Re: Tax Numbers and accouting

    And if you keep your bees in a storage unit over Winter on said property. Bunk. I am sure that buildings on land where bees aren't kept is also eligible for Tax Relief, the STAR Program.

    Re: Should I be feeding in Ohio?

    Unless you actually weighed that deep, I doubt it. More like 50 pounds of honey. What is the bottom box like? What's the total weight? Did you use a scale? I hear that 150 lbs is a good weight to...
