    Re: Veil only...no suit. Thoughts?

    I know your teacher and I think you mis-interpreted him. He is the best bee man I know and is always looking out for what's in your best interest. I believe the point he was trying to make is each...

    Re: grooved frames and comb guide

    I rip paint stirring sticks that I get for free and just tap them into the groove. They fit snug but a little wood glue in the groove first won't hurt.

    Small Hive Beetles love apple cider vinegar.
    I assume it won't be a problem in the winter?

    Re: It's ALIVE!

    Nice!
    Be quick and careful. Unless my weather maps are wrong it's only in the mid to upper 20's in your area.

    Re: They Died ..... Now what?

    Like everyone else said, store them until next Spring in a mouse proof container. Inside the hive is fine if it's mouse proof.
    Wax moth's won't be a problem this time of year.

    Re: Crystallized Honey

    I have a heated mat I use for starting seeds in the wintertime. We put jars of crystallized honey on it overnight and they cleared right up. It might be worth a try if you have one.

    Re: Help with plant id
