    Re: Are these Honey Bees?

    Re: Funny honey label

  3. Re: Double screen between laying worker hive and queen right hive.

    I have no experience with this situation, but it sounds like a good solution. Would it be better to put the queenright box on the bottom to allow the pheromones to be carried up by the natural air...

  9. Re: Typical compensation for extracting someone elses honey?

    Half would be great, but a fallback offer might be 1/3 the extracted honey plus the cappings and honey cut off.
    I had some sorgum processed to molasses and the guy wanted 1/3.

    Re: Getting stung from something.

    Probably yellow jackets, but as for a single bad actor, when I would go out on the porch, 25' from the hives, a bee would immediately come and harass me. I would go back in house and the bee would...
