    PS

    While I am excited about the effectiveness of raw honey, I have to let you know another piece of the puzzle: my friend also quit smoking in that time, which I am sure made a huge difference as well.

    bed sores and honey

    I used a mix of honey, turmeric powder, and water on a friend's tunneling bedsores with fantastic results. The sore had been around for almost TWO YEARS. The opening was so small (about 4mm) that it...

    Flower Essences for bees?

    Has anyone tried Flower Essences on their bees? I have started to use some, and am curious if anyone has experience with this.

    Also see my post re water/vinegar mix instead of smoke in this forum.

    I tried biobee's approach of misting a water and vinegar mix instead of smoke and haven't had any problems. I like the ease of just using a spray mister instead of having to keep the smoker going....

    I thought Carniolans as a breed do well in colder climates? The package may have been raised in the south somewhere, but as a breed they should do well up here?

    Can I split?

    One of my tbh (Michael Bush's design) has 24 of 36 bars fully drawn, and 3 or 4 partially. The other, just over a mile down the road is still at 17 bars.

    Forgot to mention that I did put one drawn comb from a previous hive (with honey in it) about 1/3 to 1/2 down the hive. Guess that may have helped them get their bearings?
