    Re: My New Method Making Bee Syrup Pro & Cons

    You live in Louisiana and don't have a big pot and a propane burner to boil crabs or crawdads?:scratch:

    This looks like we might be busy once the new site goes live. FYI, location is probably the single most important piece of information that this site needs. A flag showing country reminds one of an...

    I grew up in the Lutheran Church MS, about as close to Catholic as you can get theologically without the scary nuns. I cannot recall ever having an issue with the teachings of the Church being at...

    Re: Got a swarm today

    I would put as much drawn comb as you can find in a single deep, put the worst looking to the outside positions. Use another deep with no frames on top as a shaker box so that the bees end up in the...

    Re: What to do with mold/mildew in hive?

    Aren't bees amazing? When presented with a problem, they work together to fix it. A little teamwork and it is as if the problem never existed. Glad that things worked out .
  9. Re: new hive, do I have to check the lower frame

    It could happen in the cut and paste process, especially if there are multiple quotes. I fixed the name to show the OP.

    Re: What to do with mold/mildew in hive?

    Agree with the others. Mold is not a big issue. But, if there was pollen on the frames that got funky, I would wash it out. I soaked some really nasty super frames in an ice chest full of water and...

    Re: Bee Traffic in a Dearth?

    To the best of my knowledge, the bees are pretty good about energy conservation. If there is truly nothing out there, they will just hang out at the hive. But they will forage an increasingly larger...

    Re: Harvest with Apivar?

    I would not put all that honey into a weak hive as there are probably not enough bees to defend it. Consider marking the frames and then moving only 2 or 3 to the weak hive and distribute the rest as...

    River rat, I use regular 3/8" B/C plywood for inner covers and telescoping tops. The tops get a coat of primer and two coats of a high quality latex exterior grade paint. So far I have not had any...

    Re: Apiguard treatment on 2 deeps

    Can't help with the Apiguard question, but you should treat your apiary as a unit. If one hive tests high, all hives should be treated. I was just having this same conversation with our state...

    Buzz, were the frames exclusively undrawn foundation when you put them in above the excluder? There is no doubt that the most likely explanation is that the pattern is due to the darker cells having...

    Re: Delayed sting response?

    Rob, I have been bitten by spiders several times, black widows I think as they are prevalent in the apiary. Usually the first indication is the intense itching, often followed by swelling that...
  23. Re: So, what did you scrounge today? Braggin encouraged

    It's a no-brainer Greg. Tell the wife that the two of you are going on a short road trip. Get the wood, and treat her to a nice dinner after you pick it up.
