    Re: Costco 100% Raw unfiltered honey for $2.98 lb

    Probably so. I'm always telling people there are no honey police.

    It's tough enough to get a semi-reasonable price for honey produced honestly. CostCo and others are making it even harder.

    Re: Washboarding Bees

    You may want to spell out what QTL means.

    I'd be curious to know how you think washboarding relates to navigation. :scratch: :s

    Re: Costco 100% Raw unfiltered honey for $2.98 lb

    My feelings on this is that people that sell honey (if this is real) this cheaply do a disservice to themselves and everyone else that produces honey. I don't see a way anyone could make any money...
  4. Re: I just put 5x5 nuc into double 10-frame deeps: observations; the right thing to d

    Not familiar with the technique you're trying but go with an industry-standard full-sized hive if they're still growing and get rid of the insulation. You'll thank yourself later. If they're not...

    Re: Mouse in my hive

    I also think you should discard it completely (throw in trash, not feed to bees).

    Re: Wet frames - how long to leave on hives?

    I left mine a week but that was the first chance I had to retrieve them. I suspect anything after two days would be fine.

    Re: Last years supers smell fermented

    Do the frames have pollen? That may be what you're smelling.

    Re: Oak tree covered in bees?

    I've heard them in a big oak we have near our house and always wondered why. Thanks for the info.

    Re: Maxant 16 gallon bottling tank

    I bought the 25 gallon tank last year. Maxant quality is excellent. A bottling tank is a game changer - you can bottle on demand instead of all at once and liquefy the honey for bottling as needed....

    Re: BetterComb Experience, Anyone?

    I saw that comb as well. Not sure how well it works but it's very expensive. I think of BetterBee as a very reputable company.

    For your weaker colonies that aren't building up comb, I would try...

    Re: Kelley Beekeeping

    I ordered some commercial grade supers from the last December and was not impressed with them. Most boxes were warped and wouldn't set flat. I'm talking off by at least 1/4-inch where bee would...

    Re: Review Of Lyson Jacket

    Glad I finally met someone who has the same opinion about the Ultrabreeze. Another negative about it is even a slightly hot smoker will melt holes in it left and right.

    Re: Review Of Lyson Jacket

    I invested in an Ultrabreeze a few years ago. I'm in the minority here but don't care for it much. I do really like the Lyson though. Nice and lightweight plus it doesn't snag on everything like...

    Efff the Padres.

    Call a beekeeper and have them collect the swarm while the crowd watches. That would have been vastly more entertaining (and educational) than most baseball games I've seen. No...

    Thanks for the info and for posting this. I'm a registered Tennessee beekeeper but didn't get the info. How did you hear about it if you don't mind me asking?

    Re: honey jars

    I love to know an answer for this too. Seems like glass queenline jars have gone sky high recently.
  20. Re: Distinguishing between Carniolan and Caucasian honey bees

    The main difference is:

    If you find yourself removing the inner cover with a standard hive tool they're Carniolans.
    If you find yourself removing the inner cover with a 6-foot pry bar and/or a...

    Re: How do bees know "their" beekeeper?

    The fact that they recognize me but still try to sting me every single time isn't making me feel any better about it.

    Re: Tennessee

    Maybe it was the strength of my hives coming out of winter but this has been the worst swarming year I've ever experienced in five years of beekeeping.

    I seldom see my bees on the huge tulip poplar trees near the hives. As much as you hear about it as a nectar source I'd expect it to sound like a swarm when you walked by the tree! I suspect they...
