    Re: What kind of bush is this?

    Hmmmm clyde has a good point. I just looked at the picture closer and compared to elderberry in the woods behind my house. The leaves are not a match. Also the elderberry is more of a stalk or a...

    Re: What kind of bush is this?

    Good question. And, I don't know lol. I have to assume no because I believe rhododendron is poisonous and I've never heard of people being poisoned by that. Again, not an expert over here.

    Re: What kind of bush is this?

    I agree that it looks like elderberry, but please research how to tell elderberry from pokeweed (pokeberry). It is hard to tell from the pic because the berries haven't bloomed yet. Pokeberry...

    Re: Police made me move my hives..

    I actually did read last week that it was approved and passed. I just can't seem to find it as I have already invested way too much time into this thread. I guess my original point is, there is no...

    Re: Police made me move my hives..

    I did not read the Georgia laws and that is why I also gave NJ as an example. This one I gave a pretty good read, unless I missed something or misinterpreted the read.

    Re: Police made me move my hives..

    100 percent false. Someone here states that Georgia over ruled and made it illegal for municipalities to forbid beekeeping. And where I am from here in jersey, same thing. It actually just...

    Re: Police made me move my hives..

    Then go and fight it at a state level. If enough of the bee organizations in a particular state work together, it can be done. I don't think anyone said it would be easy.

    Re: Police made me move my hives..

    Yea, not in this particular case. In this case, the ordinance is based on ignorance. Not some anti bee agenda. It is our job as bee enthusiasts to educate this ignorance in a diplomatic fashion.
  11. Re: Are my hives aggressive enough for intervention?

    I'm having the same issue since the summer kicked in and the flow ended. This is what I do. Instead of smoking the bees alot, smoke normally. 2 puffs across the top. Then smoke the heck out of your...

    Re: Police made me move my hives..

    You totally missed brettj's point. And you do feel you are above the law. Your town ordinance says that you can not have them and you said you have them hidden because it is your god given right. ...

    Re: Queen flew off when hive opened

    Yes, exactly what Tenbears suggests. Wait until day #4. Open up the hive and inspect for eggs. The minute you see an egg, close up the hive, go inside, and have a cool beverage. And resume your...

    Re: Queen flew off when hive opened

    A few things to consider here. Do you have eggs and young larvae visible? If so, you need to decide based on the time line and your region, if you'd like them to take care of it. If you feel 30...

    They are sealed with plastic now, but the chest freezer will be purchased soon
  16. Re: need advice on stored honey frames for last year.

    I just discovered that the ones I'm using have an opening right under the handle. My bins were basically a beehive with a nice entrance for them to access.
  17. Re: need advice on stored honey frames for last year.

    Oh I have no plan to open feed. I just thought that since they found the stored goods in the open garage [20 yard from the hives] that I'd treat it like open feeding. I inspected my hives today and...
  18. Re: need advice on stored honey frames for last year.

    Ok, lesson learned. I knew these stored frames were going to be a problem. I just got in from hopefully resolving the issue. I emptied bins and got all bees off the frames. I placed frames back...
  19. Re: need advice on stored honey frames for last year.

    I am working on cleaning up the garage now while I inspect hives and add the cleaned and drawn mediums to the supers an removing any undrawn frames. I'm going to saran wrap the top of the 1 bin with...
  20. Re: need advice on stored honey frames for last year.

    Ha! It appears they have made up my mind for me. I just got my first lesson on how fast bees can pick clean frames.... about 4 days. These frames are spotless man. Just a few honey super frames...
  21. need advice on stored honey frames for last year.

    I have tuperware bins filled with large and medium frames. Many of these frames have honey in them. Since the flow is winding down, the bees seem to have found these bins. They are actually...

    Uh ohh. She's here with me now. I went camping a day before here and now we are both here. I believe it's supposed to rain all day tomorrow and hopefully that will be my saving grace.
