    Re: Reusing comb - does it "wear out"?

    It sounds like some has only been used for honey while other has raised brood leaving behind the cocoon. The bees should "let you know" when the comb is no good and quit using it. I have had a few...

    Re: Time Sensitive!!(by 3:45 today!)

    Why not place a box there to catch what you can until a few minutes before the party? You still won't catch all, maybe the majority though.

    Re: Fore end on my rifle too tight. Can I plane it?
