  1. Re: What happens to the honey the bee's eat during a hive inspection

    Does the smoke cause them to store honey or does it interfere with their sense of smell? I see two answers and don't know enough about bees to make a choice between the two, but I am sure that bees...

    Re: How do you follow a "bee line" ?

    It's interesting, but I can't imagine anyone taking that much time to locate a colony of bees. It makes current nuc prices seem cheap, not to mention honey prices, but I realize if one was on the...

    Re: How do you follow a "bee line" ?

    I have read in the history of how the West was settled, that pioneers of watched the bees leave a water spot and viewed them until out of sight. Walk to the last spot you saw the bee and look up for...

    They are fuzzy wuzzy bees. I haven't a clue, but they sure are different. I have never seen bees like that. Thanks for the picture.

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    A few thoughts:

    1. If the population continues to grow at some point in time there will be a person on every square yard of land. Who knows, maybe we will learn to like cozy.

    2. I assume we...

    Re: 8 frame or 10

    A 10 frame deep is approximately twice as large in terms of square inches of frames an eight frame medium. It is so close that one can say a 10 frame deep equals two eight frame mediums.

    Re: 8 frame or 10

    I think you are correct in your above post. Unless one is a commercial beekeeper, I cannot see any benefits for 10 frame hives.

    Re: 8 frame or 10

    There are some beekeepers on this forum that run eight frame mediums for brood and honey. I have mostly eight frame hives, but my brood boxes are deeps. Supers of honey are heavy, and the ten frame...

    Since this is a fairly large forum and Mann Lakes is not a participant it seems a bit unfair (unethical) to hammer them on this site. Call them again, tell them you have been a good customer and ask...
