I will be there!
I did not see any pollen except for the couple hand fulls of sub I put out and they took it up quickly.
I ended up not making the trip to HF today to get a brad gun, had to tear out a Beaver dam...
My bees were out by the thousands today, they look strong for now!
I have had hive patties on mine and they have consumed several and I still plan to try a few of the cakes!
guessing I will be getting a few of ur queens when they become available!
Yes I had swarms from my own last year not feral. I also still made honey and quite a bit of sourwood. I just don't have the time to go throught them weekly for cells and did the same thing last year...
Thanks guys I am heading to HF today (2 hr drive) and will get just that.
Waiting on it to warm up before I leave it is suppose to reach 54 here today and plan on installing a few of Lauris sugar...

Have 3-4 that are lagging and did not produce those r the ones I want to requeen anyway and have had to keep a eye on all winter and they are all at the home yard. So if I split those 4 will need 8...
Here at my home I have 15 surviving as of now. That's the ones im wanting to increase. Like to run around 40 here at most but have another 11 at another yard.
Trying to reach 40 and also just out together 30 new supers for honey. Guess this feller over across the river may have to give me some split advice!
I bought a senco stapler and love it but have over 600 pcs foundation to install and wanna brad the wedges and totally leave out a hammer lol.
Heading to HB freight today and wondering what size brads to nail in wedges on the frames?
Great bunch to do business with!
Just chilling watching the WILDCATS whoop up on the CARDINALS and everyone else.... LOL

I am not sure but thinking they are closed till after first of year?
I claim that SourWood is the best ive ever tasted and I try to taste it all!
Its just nice to finally have a state apiarist who cares and returns calls, emails and gets out there, I applaud her!
I just bought the mann lake 3/8 stapler and love it. Its a senco SLS20XP and I am using glue and staples.
I got my mann lake stapler in today, 100 frames in no time flat and love it
I down loaded the owners manual and it says NEVER LUBE, requires no lubrication on the model I mentioned.
Barry do you staple boxes also?
The sls20xp says no oil and is a 3/8th stapler
