    One for the books.

    Four weeks ago this coming Wednesday I performed a cut out for a client. This was a newly established swarm. They were under a bay window roof and I stripped the shingle and lifted the decking to get...

    Re: need to mow grass in front of hive

    A reel mower makes no sounds or emissions that will disturb bees. Even though mine easily tolerate about three to four good passes with my push mower before letting me know it's time to take a beer...

    Re: Do you ever feed swarms?

    Always! I figure if in doubt FEED you can't go wrong that way.
    While swarms are primed and timed on the flow I can't control the weather so I hedge my bets.

    Re: What size hardware cloth for SBB?

    #8 isn't the only size as #7, if you can find it, also works. #6 will allow a bee to pass through and is used on some pollen traps, as is #5, for this reason (the mesh knocks off the pollen). I...

    Re: Cockroach Bait for SHB

    I won't tell it's illegal but it's illegal.

    Do what you want but I in good conscience couldn't sell honey out of a hive that has had an off label pesticide in it.

    I'm in Georgia as well and...
  10. Re: Looking for advice on a new jacket/hood combo.

    Ultrabreeze hands down. I do cutouts and that work gets hot, nasty and the bees can get ill. The ultrabreeze has held up well. Definitely cooler than a suit. I'm not sure if the materials contribute...

    Re: To smoke or not to smoke

    Always have the smoker lit and ready. However I often go into hives minus smoke or veil but that's a judgement call on my part. If in doubt I smoke and suit up. I never put on the gloves unless made...

  14. Re: Possible farm by our new home--worried about pesticides

    Large farms are not automatically bee death. While conditions may exist that are detrimental to bees (pesticides, herbicides, monocrops) the inverse may be true as well.

    What a sad commentary on how farmers have become the enemy in the minds of those who have benefited the most from farmers.

    Re: rescuing a swarm from an air vent

    If they just moved in and you can get "behind" them with some bee quick you can run them out. This usually works in the first 48 hours. Much more than that or by the time it takes to have open brood...

    Re: Oxalic acid and resistance

    The studies I've read say it is highly unlikely but they all hedge their bets and recommend rotation by mode of action to prevent resistance.
  24. Re: Seeley Lab Study: Small cavities and frequent swarms, primary resistance to mit

    I would say you're right. My experience with ferals is that when moved into standard equipment and managed for production, large cavity, they crash from mites.
