  8. Re: Pulling Honey Supers after a rain and when to extract

    Hello,

    The bee club I belong to did moisture testing last night for any members that wanted to have their honey tested. Mine tested at 17.4%.
  9. Re: Pulling Honey Supers after a rain and when to extract

    A refractometer is a good thing to have. I do have one, but it is currently in several bits as it took a nice fall.

    Honey was 95-100% capped, closer to 100%. I think things went well, just worried...
  10. Pulling Honey Supers after a rain and when to extract

    Hello,

    It has been raining for the last couple of days. My plan was to pull honey supers this weekend and extract.

    I have access to a garage that will have a dehumidifier running.

    Will it be...
  11. Re: Hopguard receives sectionon 18 emergency approval in Maine

    I would say that it is regulated because it is a chemical used inside the beehive with the potential to contaminate honey (a pure food consumed by humans).

    Re: Pigeon Mountain issue

    My order has now been completed. I arrived home a several minutes ago to find a package on the porch. Inside was my daughters bee suit. I would say they just got a supply of suits in.

    Re: Doing some extractor research.... :)

    I just got a Maxant 3100H. The frames fit well, but are a tight fit. Any blob of propolis on the frames can make it a bit difficult to get the frame to seat properly into the bottom of the extractor.

    Re: Honey Prices in your part?

    Well, after a long debate, I ordered the Maxant 3100H. I was going to go with a small 2 or 3 frame unit, but with my new plans on having more hives than I currently do, I would have been extracting...

    Re: First swarm; didn't go well.

    It is always nice to have someone call you about getting some bees, then they decide to chase them off or spray them before you get there. The bees probably left after he started the fire.
