    Re: Passing of Walter W. Wright

    I am very sorry for your family's loss and you have my sincerest condolences. Mr. Wright's observations, whether you agreed with them or not, made you think. That, in and of itself, made it good to...

    Re: Odd commercial route

    No. The only person I know of in Alabama that shipped bees to almonds was Ted Kretschman. And I believe he stopped a few years ago. As far as going through Alabama, the state cannot stop the...

    Odd commercial route

    Noticed my first load of bees Friday on U.S. 78 (I-22.) I thought it odd that a load would run I-22 to I-40 instead of the southern route of I-10. Are there many commercial operations in north...

  5. Re: Winter brood, weather has been way too warm

    Dar, I'm seeing the same here. Haven't checked for brood, but the bees in one yard are bringing in orange and yellow pollen. The yellow I'm guessing to be wild mustard.

    Re: Could One Ask For More?

    I love runnin' my beagles, but I'd give just about anything to be behind a brace of good bird dogs hunt in' quail one more time.

  8. Re: Tree cut down - log with bees now in back yard

    Remember. All your bees have to be in a hive with removable frames for inspection purposes.

    Was going to look at the hives before going to the store and went out just as a large swarm was leaving the one hive I thought that wouldn't swarm. Got them into a deep. Don't...

    Spring prices

    I was looking on Craigslist at the prices for early bees and nucs. There was a price increase for the packages. And it seemed to bee in line considering previous years. But the prices I saw for...

    Re: Cotton/soybean honey.

    Can't really say on the white blossoms. The easy way to see a nectar flow in soybeans is to look for butterflies flying across the tops of the rows. And here's a difference you may see between...

    Re: Formic smell from hive

    I don't know if a formic acid treatment would have that effect, but I suppose it could happen. Formic acid was one of the first organic acids synthesized in a lab. My biology professor in college...

    Re: Cotton/soybean honey.

    You'll need to ask about if and/or when any pesticides or fungicides may be applied. Most farmers down here are using neonic coated seed,which keeps the pest numbers down and gets rid of a great...

    Re: Formic smell from hive

    Ants produce formic acid. It's the chemical ants use to put down a scent trail for other ants to follow. In fact, the word FORMA means ant.

  20. Re: Is it worth testing to determine if they are Africanized Honey Bees?

    Gonna agree with Paul on this one. Most likely, that colony has some Amm genetics that still float around down here. I have a similar colony in my yard. They follow me for 100 yards after working...

    I believe I'll bet on the queen to start laying pretty soon. I checked one hive today and she has just started to lay. What I would look for is if the bees are prepping cells for eggs by polishing...
