  1. Re: Oxalic Acid Vaporizing vs. Dribbling

    Several years ago, I hurt my hand and had it all bandaged up just as I was getting ready to dribble.
    I called a LARGE and very well known beekeeper who told me to just dribble from the top. Don't...

    But seriously, I have not noticed a problem.
    A lot probably depends on the texture of the concrete surface.

    Two years ago we fired up a new bottling operation.
    The concrete to be coated was about 23 years old and had propolis patches and oily spots.

    Re: Does anyone use apistan?

    This is not true.
    We have many reports of excellent efficacy this year after years of rotation.

    Re: Could winter bees already be here?

    I have always thought that if I had to choose the single most important task in the beekeeping year in terms of overall success it is our fall nutrition program.
    The most valuable work is done in...

    Re: How to secure tar paper

    Minz, you are talking about roofing felt, not tar paper; right?
    I just want to clarify for those that are covering their hives for the first time. DON'T ask for "tar paper"

    Re: Tax Numbers and accouting

    SweetFields, I think you may be asking the wrong question.
    The question for you is, "How do I set up a small business in N.Y.?

    Re: Mouse guard question

    Don't use 1/4"!!
    If you do you will soon see piles of pollen at the entrance that was stripped off of bees attempting to enter the hive after foraging.
    Use 1/2" hardware cloth.

  23. Re: Paramount Farms buying out beekeepers?
