    Re: Please Stop...

    What ever happened to the days when most people just couldn't get enough of learning new aspects of their craft so that they could possibly become better at what they do? The only thing that makes an...
  2. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Not to mention the logistics that a comm operator would have to go through. Lol....can you imagine setting up 10 jars per colony for say, 1000 colonies?! That would be a nightmare! And, the robbing...

    Re: Grafting from started queen cells

    I'm sure you could,but why would you want to? Like you said, you could easily damage the larva. So, why not let them finish it and cut the cell out, and place it elsewhere once a cocoon has been...

    Re: Bait Hive in Vicinity of New Package

    Swarm traps will not MAKE colonies swarm. Colonies swarm for a number of reasons such as overcrowded/poor ventilation, reproducing, or escaping heavy parasite loads.
    Robbers will not become a...

    Re: Will Politics Drive the Science?

    Even harder to compare here when even the livestock operators spray herbicides for broad leaf plants in the name of better forage. Cause you know, cows have a much higher weight gain off of fescue...

    Re: Hives Died in less than a Day. Why?

    out of curiousity, does LA spray for mosquitoes? You mentioned you live on a street with only a wall between your lot and the street.
    It does sound like the hive MAY have been poisoned.

    Re: frozen maple buds....

    Freezing won't lkill the buds but it does kill the flowers. So, as long as the bud is completely closed, you are in the clear.
    It's been weird this winter. 6th warmest on record here, but I've gone...
  15. Re: How long do most newbies stay with beekeeping?

  17. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    SHB would definitely be my biggest concern. If the bees can't clean up the comb in a couple days, that would be a huge risk in my opinion. However, SHB has been present in Australia for more than a...
  18. Re: Anyone know when queen will start laying in New England?

    I'll second this. Similar time frame too here at my location. I actually thought it was common knowledge and haven't even thought of bringing it up.

    Re: -40 f windchill in central NY

    Yeah, I only have about 1 cord left myself. I'll need another one piled up before the end for sure.
  20. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    VERY interesting. I would have to see the inner workings myself before I got one, but if it works like you say it does Michael, then I may consider it just for the sake of having one. I guess the...

    Re: Feeding feral bees for a future trapout

    Don't go find another tree just yet.
    You've already got your setup design for a trap out, right? If the nest is indeed dead and empty, this means that a swarm will more than likely move to this now...
