    Re: Looking for Packages in Southern MA/RI

    deknow - I didn't inquire about Wood's, I inquired about Beehavin'. And that was only because you suggested to stay clear of Beehavin'.

    Entrance reducing for robbing?

    I have 4 hives. All 4 of them have a robbing issue.

    Re: Sawdust to absorb moisture in winter?

    Splatt,

    The naysayers will indeed nay-say.

    In most cases, I usually ignore the wheel comment. There's nothing wrong with experimenting and trying new things for yourself. Don't let anyone convince you of anything other than that.

    Re: Brown leftovers from solar wax melt.

    Thanks Ed.

    Brown leftovers from solar wax melt.

    What is the dark brown left overs from filtering with a solar wax melter?
    Is that propolis? Is there any use for it? or is it just garbage?

    Re: Has anyone ever tried this syrup method?

    Yes, it would be organic. So long as you weren't adding chemicals to it.
    No, it would not be wrong.
