    Re: Honey Launding.....again

    How do you prove Sue Bee didn't contaminate it. The Chinese will say it was good honey when it left their posession.
  3. Re: risks of feeding syrup in inverted jar this time of year

    I would fill some frames with syrup and put 5-6 of them in a empty super on top of the hive. It's warm enough, and the hives are still generating enough heat that they empty them in 24 hrs. Probably...

    Re: High Winter Mortality After Strong Fall Flow

    Re: kill off your bees/colony

    Why don't you tell them how they must manage the nucs before you sell it to them? I guess that would put a big dent in sale$.

    Re: SueBee pros/cons?

    Try looking at it this way. I send you 20 loads of honey. You test it and say it's contaminated. Well it wasn't contaminated when I sent it. You owe me for 20 loads or I want my honey back.

    The yellow honey we get here is birdsfoot trefoil. It's really taken over the last 3 years and it's a great honey producer.

    Close up everything except the bottom entrance and then stuff it with a gasoline soaked rag. They'll be dead in a matter of minutes.

    Re: Pre-Plannning for Almonds

    I think I'd be looking to reduce those expenses by at least $100 per hive.
