True dat !
Good luck Pat !
Why do many recipes call for adding brewers yeast to the commercial supplements? What is the point ?
Excellent prizes !
Pat, I am a 1st year keeper in Orange. Yesterday I saw quite a lot of drones making flights from my hives. Please update us on whether the queen cells hatch and get mated or not. I am very interested...
This is my first year with bees. I am near the Texas/Louisiana border about 20 miles from the gulf. I have 3 double deep hives and 3 nucs. I made the nucs from splitting one of the Doubles in July....
Received my vaporizer yesterday. I ran a test hooked up to my mower battery with a double deep load of OA and am impressed! I had used a copper crack pipe type last week, and there is no comparison....
In my experience, yes, they will stop MOST stings. They will also tear quite easily and also get you wet with sweat quickly. I performed a cut out in May wearing one and it allowed me to continue...
Much appreciated !!!!!
I just now bought one on ebay and am glad to support someone who assists here.
I am farther south than you. I went into my hives yesterday and saw pretty much what you did, but also saw my queens and some eggs. You may just be having a hard time seeing the eggs. My Italians...
Does anyone have experience with cutting thru the foundation, and taking the foundation and queen cell?
Yes, they will attach it. I helped on some cut outs as late as October last year, and they all worked out well.
A guy in Buna wanted $250 for a single deep this spring. One in Jasper was asking $250 a few weeks ago for next springs double deep.
So---what is the downside to OAV ?
I pulled some out of the freezer today, uncapped the drones, and smacked the frames on a block. Most of the drones fell out. The bees hauled out the rest. From freezer to hive in 1/2 hour. Seems to...
I stand corrected !
Calendar has a 7-12 start date, queens hatched 7-26, a day early, as I saw them both then. No grafting, I put a frame with eggs in THIS nuc that I thought had not made a queen...
I am a 1st year keeper and have a nuc that I made by moving a frame with several queen cells from one of my 3 main hives. According to the queen rearing calendar, I am at the point of seeing larva. I...
The Texas Chief Apiarist site is listed below and is of great use.
200 is finer than 400, is it not?
Interested in the above 2 questions.
Is this him?
I am new at this, but I have been stung quite a few times. Stings on my arms, I barely feel and they have basically no effect. Stings on my hands cause them to swell a lot. Not sure why?
I hived a cut out on 3-8-13 with 5 frames of rubber banded comb and lots of bees into a nuc. 11 days later I transferred them into a 10 frame deep and added 5 frames of foundation.I have been feeding...
Does this apply to comb with dead larva ? just put them in the hive and the bees will clean em up ?
