Looks more like an assassin bug to me
I've pretty much made the switch from top bars to langstroths, but beeline (honeybeehabitat) has great prices on woodenware. One definite plus with their top bars is that they are the right size to...
there's a good step by step here,
they also sell real prairie wildflower seed, not the typical "wildflower" junk
Nobody's mentioned MaryAnn Frazier, Larry Connor or Tim Ives yet?
500-700$ ?!?! they aren't going to get too many participants with that kind of buy-in!
I have been tempted to get a bathroom scale...
I don't think Tim leaves supers on for winter, but I do know he uses both top and bottom entrances and wraps with tarpaper. The majority of his stock is feral.

i don't personally have any experience with buckfasts, but my local bee club is importing them from ontario
i would like to try some but they are $$$
i am sure that...
thanks for the review - they are local enough to me that i had considered making the trip
as for the frames - that is the way don the fat bee man recommends so that they can be repaired without...
you should get in touch with tillers international
here's an article from the same author and publication on drone saturation -
from his website
here's another! if only it was closer!
Interested in working with bees in Pennsylvania? (Native bees, that is, not honey bees.)
sweet autumn clematis maybe
wikipedia lists http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clematis_terniflora as a minor source of nectar
and lovell's honey plants lists...
sounds to me like a huge distinction - thanks for the perspective and the article:applause:
