    Re: Taking care of my winter boredom

    beeditch,

    I have no plans. I looked at a picture and went to the shop and started to build. I will get together a plan that you may want to use or you could use the one that Ski has posted. My...

    Re: Taking care of my winter boredom

    Bevy's that is nice. Sure is handy to have a place to keep things. Before I just had to stack them on top of each other. Here is another picture with some frames on it. Deeps on one side. Mediums on...

    Re: Taking care of my winter boredom

    I actually saw a picture on the Little Creek Bee Ranch website. So it's not my idea. Just saw the pic and went in and started building. Made mine a little heavier duty. You can buy one for $120.00...

    Re: Taking care of my winter boredom

    Smoke pole. I guess it would be if I had 13 boxes to put 130 frames in. I don't. This is to hold my replacement frames for the 35 hives I already have. And if I didn't have room in my shop for a 4' X...

    Taking care of my winter boredom

    My wife and kids were busy tonight so I went to the shop. Ended up with a work table and a bee frame rack that will hold approximately 120-130 frames. What do you think.

  9. Re: How Many Lbs of Honey will a 2 deep colony produce a year?

    Well that is a million dollar question. It has a lot of variables to determine how much a hive will produce. How good is your queen? How wet and cold is the spring? How much of a flow do you have and...

    Re: Melting wax cappings

    Well I did as you suggested and washed the cappings with warm water and they came out beautifully. Now I just need to melt it down and make my wax cake. It was not even messy. Thanks for all your...

    Melting wax cappings

    I have my wax cappings from my honey harvest and it still has a little bit of honey in it. The weather has turned off cold and the bees are staying in. I am wondering if I can just melt it in hot...

    Re: Crystalized Honey

    BMAC. I agree that it is very good to eat that way and I do. It is just some people like to buy it when it is nice and smooth.

    Crystalized Honey

    Just a question. Most of my honey this year is crystallizing about two weeks after extracting. I am wondering if this is because of low moisture content or a high moisture content. Also is there any...

    Re: Sad theft of beehives

    I have to agree with you on that. It don't sound like $12K worth of bees and honey. I guess I just have a hard time believing someone would go in that close to a road you can see in the background...

    Sad theft of beehives

    Just saw this on KSL News. What is this world coming to? Is beehive theft really happening that much? I guess I live a sheltered life here in Idaho. I hope I didn't just jinx myself. Still a sad...

    Re: harvesting honey out of the deeps

    I guess my first question is how old are these hives? How hard and long are your winters? And are you interested in making bees in the future or just in getting honey? If you are interested in making...

    Re: Extractor advice for a friend

    No, it isn't. I really like the looks of that one though. The one I built in on You Tube under honey spinner.com. The one you posted looks pretty simple and inexpensive.

    Re: Extractor advice for a friend

    One of the simplest inexpensive extractors I have ever built is called the honey spinner. You can see it on you tube when you type in honey spinner. Worked well for me when I was at 4-5 hives. Jumped...

    Re: extracting outdoors at night.

    I have tried this. Last year in fact. I guess if you have all your supers ready to go and no bees in them then it will probably work. I did not have mine prepared prior to extracting. I found out...

    Re: Queen cells Please analyse my pics

    I would put on a second brood box instead of a super right now. Take off the excluder and let the queen move up and give her more room to lay. The bees don't need more room, the queen does so she can...
  25. Re: What price to charge for strong beehives I have to sell?

    It is funny how people say they wouldn't pay 3-4 hundred dollars for a hive, but they turn around and buy the bee keeping kit, 200.00 - 250.00 and then a package of bees, 100.00 -150.00 depending...
