    Re: Rossman Apiaries

    I wonder if they are a distributor for Dadant? I know they sell queens and packages, and make their own woodenware but other items I have noticed appear similar as well

    Re: Should I split this hive?

    I would think about doing a cut down split. Move the queen out into a new deep with some brood and nurse bees along with some honey and pollen and let her build up again. The original hive can now...
  5. Re: Over Wintered Laying Worker...Remedy?

    I guess when i read over things and started thinking it made more sense to just move on. After all, I'm not killing the bees, I'm actually reinforcing existing hives and freeing up some drawn comb to...
  6. Re: Over Wintered Laying Worker...Remedy?

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm doing a few splits tomorrow so I think this hive will just get shaken out and I will use the drawn comb in the splits. The remaining bees can just find a new home...
  7. Over Wintered Laying Worker...Remedy?

    Last fall I noticed I had a laying worker and thought I caught it quick enough to insert a queen and correct itself. The hive did not accept the queen and it was so late in the fall I didn't try and...

    Re: Market For Cut Comb?

    MP is right, restaurants that sell fruit and cheese platters, especially farm to table types will buy from you if your offering is pretty. I also have quite a few customers that buy it in the plastic...

    Re: Significant Other.

    I got my wife an UltraBreeze suit and now her confidence is so high she is only using a veil. It is really helpful to have another pair of hands (pretty ones at that) in the bee yard. :)
