  1. Re: Austin TX - Looking for some bees to go with an extra queen

    If you have any frames you're willing to sell, please let me know. Queen will be here tomorrow and I've got no place for her.
  2. Austin TX - Looking for some bees to go with an extra queen

    Ended up with an extra queen, but my hives are not established enough to pull frames from yet. :doh:

    PM me if you may have a few frames to sell. Worst case, I'll get her to someone else.

    Thx

    Re: Frame Feeders

    I'm a new beek as well, but I've been having great luck with the plastic yellow frame feeders from Brushy Mountain. The floats work great, which appears to be what others complain about with other...

    Thanks. We'll see how things look this weekend. Hopefully they've started drawing out the new frames. I'm also curious to see how much food they've eaten. Everything is blooming here right now.
