  6. Re: Left over bees from swarm capture

    That's what I thought too about being sprayed but didn't want to say it. I dumped and buried the bees away from where I'd set them up. I destroyed the combs once I read this so thanks for the reply. ...

    Re: NO HONEY EVER

    Do you have any brazillian pepper in your area, or what about saw palmetto? That's where most my surplus honey comes from, other than the hives near orange groves. They get nectar from palms too. Can...

    Re: Plastic jars for honey

    I always have a supply of this jar because you can fit 2 in a small priority box--in a quart zip lock bag first and extra tape around the edges of the box. Makes a great gift and low shipping price.

    Someone posted recently that he puts out whatever extra equipment he has. That is great advice.
    For my area, I don't know why, but I get more swarms to 5 frame deeps than anything else. I've used...

    Re: calking up the entrance to a wall

    Thanks treebee, that's what we will do. I need to ask my friend again, I thought he told me the guy opened up the wall, thus the mess. I bet he didn't get all the comb out. When we get rid of these...
