    Re: How do you preserve sugar syrup solution?

    For many years we just mixed it with isopropyl alcohol heated in a water bath(from the book by Manley), but started doing it this way when I read this post on the UK Beekeeping forum. Of course we...

    Re: Blackwater Beekeepers

    Well don't give up yet .You are so close! With the kind of spring you describe, there will be swarms to be had for free, as Hogback said. Go get them.Probably better bees than an unreliable company...
  8. Re: What is your State's Pollinator Protection Plan like?

    No its not practical to be moving yards frequently. But at least you will have a chance to do something or not, if you know what pesticide is being used , where and when.This has been hashed out in...
  9. Re: What is your State's Pollinator Protection Plan like?

    So will anything good come from this? I see bats,butterflies, birds and native bees are included as pollinators. This just looks like more government waste to me. And in the end,when all the hoopla...

    If you are a guest on the farmers land, do you have a right to tell him how to manage his pests?
  12. Re: What is your State's Pollinator Protection Plan like?

    I haven't heard what if anything California is going to do. But we already have had the pesticide notification here for many years. It works like this: All beeyards are registered with the county ag...

  16. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    10 4 on the rent money. Now on to the next thing... Lots of big healthy hives, lots of fat drones and warm weather so far. Early queens should be great from CA this year.
  17. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    I'd like to think that most of the growers got the word about tank mixes with IGR's during bloom and didn't do that this year.But you never know.
  18. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    Didn't see any of that either .Doesn't mean it didn't happen to someone else but I have the same problem as Keith right now. The bees came out of the almonds in fine shape,though maybe with too much...

    Re: Bottom board usage?

    They come in handy for swarms and making splits if you are short on pallets. Just don't wait until they weigh 100 lbs before setting them back on pallets!
    But many palletized operations will have...

    Beeghost. The one from Lega Italy looks like it will meet that expectation. I finally got one, but haven't used it yet.It was a process to go through to order it!
  23. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    Rain,that's the wet stuff that used to fall from the sky here......

    Articulation makes all the difference in getting in and out of tight places plus softer ride. Though I admit its fun to shift gears and go flying down the rows on a long run through the orchards with...
