    Re: To make it real

    They all have pretty decent blocks on top. And I'm not leaving huge open entrances on them this year. I'm thinking of putting a piece of plywood up as a snow fence, block the worst of the wind.

    Honey production hives produce honey. Nuc production hives produce nucs. Packages producers produce bulk bees. Cell builders produce queens. How many pounds of bees did you sell from your honey...

    Re: To make it real

    Re: To make it real

    Doesn't mean they're all equally full. I leave "supers" on all year. They are well painted. Now that I'm in a dry climate, perhaps the boxes will stop rotting.

    Re: article feedback request

    Nope and nope.

    What I do know is all the problems I've had with feeding. The longer I go, the less I do it, the less I want to do it, and the more I feel it's actually detrimental. Feeding is...

    I have a beekeeping video! You may recognize the box colors and entrance configuration.

    Yep, those are bees.

    How they got there, how long they've been there, whether they've been treated or not, who can say?

    I appreciate that, but do you remember how many blow up fights we had before you got to that point?

    Must be.


    Had my integrity questioned a few too many times. Have you ever heard me say "those hives didn't actually die, you're just padding your numbers"? Yet I hear the opposite all the time....

    Re: To make it real

    For thinking, no saying, that a picture makes it real when a picture is one of the easiest things to fake. You know what's not easy to fake? 5000 posts in 12 years. Fake that.

    So my pouring forth of information, the likes of which is never seen from anyone else in this forum, didn't lead you to believe me? The blogs, the website, the podcast, nothing? You had to have a...

    Your guess is as good as mine. Maybe it's the editing.
