  5. Re: Here is my backyard solution.

    Dean, What are your plans to re-start? have you decided on any queen sources as of yet? You are going to breed, correct! Not sure what unmanaged bees are.

    Jim, are you breeding at all, or...
  6. Re: Would like feedback on experience w/Buckfast & All American bees?

    DB, I think you answered your own question. "You want good queens from a northern breeder". There are bunch of resources up north. You just have to wait until they are ready. As far as the Weaver...

  8. Re: Live and Let Die - Do you really reduce the gene pool?

    Re: Running out of honey supers!

    Good news for you! As Vance noted, extract now and get them back on. Most folks extract several times a year based on the number of hives and equipment they have available.
