  1. Re: Has anyone used www.fastbees.net to order bees?

    Most package suppliers are sold out already. If you haven reserved your order by now, I would recommend ordering soon. In mid May, you should check with local clubs like MTN-bees says. You could...

    Re: TRUCKS post a picture of your rig!

    Here's my lowly 2004 Nissan Frontier with a $120 ladder rack I use for swarm season. I'm just a poor retired cop who's spent his life protecting life and liberty. I live on a meager pension and could...

    Rader,

    A while back someone posted a pic of a cat sleeping on the top cover of an active hive. I would like to include that pic into a Beekeeping 101 presentation I'm preparing or any pics for that matter...

    I'm not saying packages are better Ollie.

    Talon,

    We have it in writing. We can team up and write a "How to catch a swarm" book using some of Ollie's tips and not have to pay him anything.:thumbsup:

    Re: cheap swarm lure

    Talon,

    You're doing well for not using brood comb. I've been saving my slum in a glass jar and I think it's time to make soup! I'm going to slum gum inside 10 frame deeps and then just place...

    Talon,

    I do about the same numbers you do. For me, it's the most exciting part of beekeeping. We're in for an early swam season this year so fingers crossed!

    Unless you're extremely wealthy like Ollie Frank and can afford placing over 50 traps out in the spring:rolleyes:, you're going to have off seasons. Not every season will bring you unlimited swarms....

    Ollie,

    You can donate them to our bee club members if you like. Our meeting is tomorrow night.:thumbsup:
  21. Re: I just remembered why I switched to top bar hives!

    The last thing my bees want to do is build comb. It takes a heavy flow for them to want to build comb or lots of sugar water when you first install a package to stimulate their wax glands to build...

    I'm sure that's why all the commercial honey producers use crush and strain because it's so much faster than extracting.

    I have a beeyard on a farm with a couple of Donkeys. They have always grazed near the hives with no problem. One day I was doing a hive inspection and one of the hives was really grumpy. Both Donkeys...
