    Sorry for the late reply. i cut out these squares and freeze them then fit them back in the slots. The bees that remove the most dead larvae, consistently will be my breeder queens.

    Hello
    I am a Danish bee keeper coming to Jamaica next week for two weeks.
    I would like to meet some bee keepers and get a chat and to learn something.
    I could even bring some Danish honey.

    Unfortunately I will be out of the country in a few days. What section of the island will you be visiting?

    Dear redhat
    I will be based in Kingston. I am working with an European programme regarding laboratory testing, including testing of honey.
    I will be leaving on March 2nd.
    I will bring some Danish honey in case anybody would like to taste.

    Do you have a beekeepers association?

    I see that many people are viewing the dadabs.com website. The main purpose of the site is to share with other persons how beekeeping is done in a country that does not have distinct seasons. Where it is sunny practically all year round. It is also to share with fellow Jamaican beekeepers practices that I have learnt from others as well as from experimenting. The books and internet are flooded with information from North America so I thought it could serve as a local reference especially with the nectar sources as we do not have plants like clover and buckwheat and others that are mentioned so much. Thank you all as I am new to building websites. I would also like assistance from persons who have more experience than I do with websites. As you can see it is a work in progress but I am updating the blog as much as I can so please check it out.

    Duhaje,

    I get to Jamaica about twice a year, once with the family and the other with just the wife. I'd love to bring you some of my honey to swap. I am going to be staying in Montego Bay at the Royal Decameron in November. I can meet you downtown if you like. I love the pork pit!

    Well It is the same one as I saw advertised by the FatBeeMan. First flat sheets are placed at the entrance of the rollers( In this picture the rollers are still covered in plastic. The rollers are then rotated by a bar to the end of the machine. This one is manual.
