    Re: Spring feeding question

    Well, the queen even laid eggs in the super. So I left it on, cut the feeding (removed the inner feeders and replaced with empty frames), and added another super with a queen excluder.

    Thanks guys for all of the thoughtful answers. So, Sometimes I can get stung in a more sensitive area and I swell more. Or is it just that the bee released more venom that time? So how long would it...

    Re: Reasonable Shipping Costs?

    I buy my hives from honeybeehabitat.com and they charged me 31$ for 62lbs of freight. That seems pretty reasonable to me.
