  4. Re: Stupid question: how many beekeepers are scared of bees?

    Like Santa Caras, I never thought I would ever hear myself talking to bees, but I am guilty of it. But I rode horses a hundred years and talked to them. I even find myself talking to my cat. I...

    Re: Incredibly aggressive bees

    Mission, Texas is within one hundred miles of Mexico. Mission is also a very moderate winter climate. It's citrus orchard friendly. He could easily have Africanized bees, and I have read a similar...

    Re: Nature's Brutality

    I agree with Drionzo, nature is efficient. One of our lady friend's husband died today. He died from Alzheimer's disease. He hasn't known where he was for the past year. It was God's blessing...

    Re: $$ dollar value of hive

    The woodward is worth a couple of hundred bucks new. The bees are worth at least 150 dollars, if there is any extra honey, it is worth six dollars a pound. The foundation on the frames is a nice...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    I'm in agreement with everything Dcoates said, except I only own 20 percent of a corporation that employs 20 people, but we provide supervision for oil and gas wells and Class I wells and turn some...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    These days a lot of people think all corporations are evil. This was my point, my post was tongue in cheek. And, yes, I have worked for Dow and Monsanto and many other chemical companies. All of...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    Maybe we are approaching this subject from the wrong position. Maybe it's the greedy farmers that use round-up instead of hiring American workers to bend their backs and dig weeds from their fields....

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    I have read, and I paraphrase that the organic landscapers tell you 'to keep mowing weeds and not letting them seed and they will eventually go away,' or something to that account. I moved into a...

    Re: Is Roundup as safe as we have been told?

    From an above post:

  18. Re: Stupid question: how many beekeepers are scared of bees?

    I love working the bees, but I do have one hive that I am going to requeen. That hive attacks my veil with a hundred or more bees. All you can hear is that angry buzz and bee are crawling all over...
  19. Re: Is $370 good price for 2 deeps full of bees and 2 honey supers?

    I think that it too much for bees with unknown health and condition at this time of the year. I did pay about that much for a two box hive that had one deep and one medium eight frame with a metal...
  20. Re: EXTRACTING FOUNDATIONLESS and WIRELESS FRAMES

    As Bees-in-Miama said, "S.L.O.W.L.Y. I think some large rubber bands over the frames and a slow start would be the ticket. You can add speed as the honey flows and lightens the load which in turn...
