    Re: Is fogging with pesticides even legal ????

    Well, I can't tell if I'm lucky or not. I don't have thousands of dead bees in the hives, but the dead ones are curled up and have their tongues hanging out. There's squirming bees in front of...

    Re: Is fogging with pesticides even legal ????

    My husband got a few pictures of the truck spraying and the fog across our fields. I ran to the hives, but just felt helpless. I'm more sickened than mad right now. I'm not a weeper, but I was...

    Is fogging with pesticides even legal ????

    Came home tonight just in time to watch bellows of fog float across my hives.The Amish neighbors have a guy in a pickup fogging for misquitos or bugs on their small field of mums. Anyway, I'm...
  4. Re: New Swarm ... Wax moth frames or new foundation??

    Thanks for the stock tank tip Gypsi! I took your advice and then shook them out and let them air dry. Good thing, as I had another big swarm today and had to use those frames today. I'm not sure...
  5. Re: New Swarm ... Wax moth frames or new foundation??

    Yeh, I totally agree. Some of my strongest hives this year were last years July and August swarms. I really think it depends are your location. The bees in the Catalpa in my front yard have been...
  6. Re: New Swarm ... Wax moth frames or new foundation??

    Yup, I'll really need to get another freezer. I freeze and can all summer and there's no way, even with the contractor bags it's going in my freezer. I'm into making wine not tequila. No worms for...
  7. Re: New Swarm ... Wax moth frames or new foundation??

    Thanks Hokie. I filled my freezer with strawberries and peaches to make wine this winter. It just gags me to put them crawlys in my freezer. Gotta get a spare freezer I guess. I'm putting the...
  8. Re: New Swarm ... Wax moth frames or new foundation??

    The wax moth damage to me was pretty gross. I did see wriggling worms on 9 out of the ten frames. My fault, I did a shake out of a laying worker hive and set that double deep up hoping for a...
  9. New Swarm ... Wax moth frames or new foundation??

    Just hived a huge swarm and need some advice on what to do next time. I had a 10frame deep with drawn comb but had to many bees for just one box. The second deep of frames had some wax moths in it....
  10. Re: Walnut shreds in entrance (something new I trying)

    Man, I gotta agree!! I've got Amish neighbors and I almost died when I seen the 5 gallon buckets of round-up they were using on their "Amish grown strawberries". This is while the berries were on!!...

    Re: 1 Pound Muth Jars -- Corks?? Lids???

    At one time I thought about dipping the corks in wax, but never got around to it. Guess you could try it. Or I wonder if you could spray the cork with a cooking spray like PAM ?
  12. Re: Will the Goldenrod honey crystallize in the hive and cause winter losses???

    Thanks for all the replies. I just had an "oh..Dah" moment. I've over wintered on goldenrod in the past, but it never bloomed this early. But...with the early goldenrod bloom I've also got...

    Re: 1 Pound Muth Jars -- Corks?? Lids???

    I paid a lot for some fancy muth jars my first year. AAAAAAAAAH! The corks get sticky with honey and everyone hated them. The cork gets broken off or stuck. I was going to replace them with...
  14. Will the Goldenrod honey crystallize in the hive and cause winter losses???

    I've seen a lot of posts about how early the goldenrod is starting to bloom. Well, I don't want to start a debate about the dirty sock smell, or the likes and dislikes of the flavor of goldenrod...

    Re: Please Post Links for Extractor Information

    I purchased the brushy mountain 9-frame with honey tank last year and I love it. It extracts, strains and is ready to bottle without any extra handling of the honey. To me it's a lot less of a...

    Re: Deep to Medium SPLITS ????

    Thanks Michael. I was planning on leaving one of the deeps until next spring.

    My problem is with the 9 frame mediums with brood in them. I figured somebody would have run into this and had a...

    Re: Spliting questions

    Hi Tia, I'm in Michigan as well. I'm in the same boat as you are. I've got 8 hives and all my deeps are full of brood as well. I think it was the warm spell we had in Feb.

    Anyway, If I...

    Deep to Medium SPLITS ????

    I've got several hives I'd like to do what M. Bush suggests as even splits. I'm trying to get away from my deeps and go to all mediums, but I know it'll take time. I'm running 2 deeps that are...

    Re: Soybeans

    My hives are close to acres of soybeans. I'd talk to the farmer. I talked to my farmer about the treatments he used and he said he did use herbacides and he promised he'd let me know if he ever...

    Re: Catalpa trees

    Well paintingpreacher, if pruning is what it takes to get worms on the Catalpa, maybe I'll have some this summer. After 4 swarms in the one tree in the back yard, I cut off enough limbs to make...

    I feel I had pretty good luck overwintering bees in Michigan . I had double deep broods nest with a full super of honey or even two on top of that. I really think using upper ventilation saved my...

    I've heard the worms are great for catfish, but I've never seen any worms on my Catalpa trees. Anybody know if there are male and female trees and one or the other gets worms? I get the large...
