    Re: Odd commercial route

    Only 175, I would be willing to put money that Georgia sent ten times that or better. That's income and tax revenue the Heart of Dixie sorely needs. The gutless coward Bentley is closing state parks...

    Here's another Alabama silliness.

    There are no restrictions on the type or style of knife one may carry on your person (as it should be) except "BOWIE KNIVES". Bowie knives are forbidden by name....

    Re: Bulk sugar

    It's getting hard to come by. A friend had a source with "unlimited" supply. He shared his discovery within the association. Within the past year the "unlimited" has become very limited thanks to...

    I knew of the "exemptions" but I know how goat hill and that kleptocracy works.

    Exemptions leave one vulnerable to the whims of beauracracy.

    Re: Odd commercial route

    I love Georgia beekeeping. I have more beekeeping friends and am welcome in more beeyards here than I ever was back home. Part of that is the result of that stupid law. In my lifetime I've watched...

    It's a stupid law set up in the 60's by two package producing families to keep out Georgia and Mississippi producers. Both families are long gone but the state still holds onto it because that's the...

    If you know for a fact that the load came through Alabama but did not originate in Alabama then the state of Alabama owes you a big chunk of money. All you have to do is drop a dime on it and you...

    BTW, there are no commercial operations in Alabama sending bees to almonds. Alabama bees are free to go but they, or their boxes or anything they touch, can never return. For that matter there isn't...

    The more northerly route could be to avoid heat?
    Are you sure it originated in Alabama or Georgia? Bees on comb aren't allowed to enter Alabama, not even if they are just passing through.

    Re: 8 Frame Mediums

    Two eight frame mediums is roughly one ten frame deep in effective comb so determine what is the standard deep configuration for over wintering in your area. If single deep then two, double deep four.

    Yes, they will incorporate the wire nicely if you do your part. As said the hive needs to be perfectly plumb (level is incorrect) side to side so that the frames hang perfectly plumb. The wires need...

    Jeans work just fine for most non commercial hive operations. Heck most of the time with mine I don't even wear a veil or gloves and I've even worked bees, including cutouts, in a kilt.
