    Re: semi hauling bees over turns near home

    Re: semi hauling bees over turns near home

    I read an earlier article about this crash and the reason they didn't try saving them was because the boxes were a total loss. The truck went off the road and slid on its side for 75'.

    Re: Honey straws. Will this work?

    Yep. The ends of the straws seal really well. In my eyes to well. They don't pop open with just a bite on the end like the ones I've had in the past. From what I've read that's par for the coarse...

    Sorry I can't help you, but I'm curious also. We have one just like it here in CA. It drops a lot of pollen and the blooms don't seem to last for to long.

    Re: sugar syrup

    Honey-B-Health aka HBH will help preserve syrup for a couple months if kept in a cool place so I would think you could get 4 or more months if your keeping it in the fridge.

  17. Re: Cleaning the Propolis from the tops of feeder jars.

    Would a strong grain alcohol work? I know if your making a tincture you dissolve propolis with it. Maybe a citrus essential oil like orange or lemon?
