    Re: Redbud in bloom...

  4. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    10 4 on the rent money. Now on to the next thing... Lots of big healthy hives, lots of fat drones and warm weather so far. Early queens should be great from CA this year.
  5. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    I'd like to think that most of the growers got the word about tank mixes with IGR's during bloom and didn't do that this year.But you never know.
  6. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    Didn't see any of that either .Doesn't mean it didn't happen to someone else but I have the same problem as Keith right now. The bees came out of the almonds in fine shape,though maybe with too much...

    Re: Bottom board usage?

    They come in handy for swarms and making splits if you are short on pallets. Just don't wait until they weigh 100 lbs before setting them back on pallets!
    But many palletized operations will have...

    Re: OAV Finally registered

    Beeghost. The one from Lega Italy looks like it will meet that expectation. I finally got one, but haven't used it yet.It was a process to go through to order it!
  11. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    Rain,that's the wet stuff that used to fall from the sky here......
    The dust boiling up from behind the trucks here is almost unbearable. Another drought year.

    Re: Best Forklift for all around Apiary usage?

    Articulation makes all the difference in getting in and out of tight places plus softer ride. Though I admit its fun to shift gears and go flying down the rows on a long run through the orchards with...

    Re: USDA Honey House

    Forget the USDA. The FDA has taken over this and they are starting to get aggressive about compliance with their registration .

    I knew an old beeman who took bees to Nevada alfalfa seed. Got sprayed majorly by the grower. Before he could recover from the shock of that , the same grower sued him for breach of contract because...

    Map21? Thats a good question.
  16. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    I thought the whole thing must have been staged, because like Phil said no one with brains would do it that way.

    We pulled into one of those random roadside truck inspections today with 160 hives...
  17. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    Wonder why that is? Oh well its just a clip of how not to do it.

  20. Re: Paramount Farms buys out Headwater Honey (David Mendes)

    Succeed or fail, its going to be interesting to watch this play out. All that money aimed at beekeeping could spin off some positive results for the industry.

    Re: How would you have responded?

    No. Lots of cages. Lots of ventilation. Real easy to cook if not very careful about getting too many in a cage.
    Keith has pics somewhere of some nice cages .

    "He had read an article by RO in the ABJ and it was going to be as easy as 1,2,3... Or so he thought."
