    Sticky: Re: Treatment-Free Bungling 2018 - ?

    AR1:

    Re: Should I clean it out or leave it?

    TA:

    I enjoyed reading your post- those raccoons are certainly resourceful buggers.

    If it were me, I would remove all the dead bees and take any of the salvageable comb and re-attach it to...

    Mr. Imirie writes often of the concept of Anthropomorphic thinking- which is defined by Merriam-Webster’s as, "ascribing human characteristics to nonhuman things."

    Re: Cost of package in 1959

    This was a fun thread to read- I am sorry I missed out on the guesses.

    That said, I was curious what this 2# package 'should' cost today if we assume the actual rate of inflation in the US from...

    Good update- sorry to hear about the nuc failure. I was surprised to read that you are still feeding 1:1. When do you typically switch over to 2:1 in your locale?

    You are a little North of me, but guys around here shoot for 60 - 80 pounds of stores going into winter- so I would expect it would be preferable for you to have at least this much...

    Good write-up, DNS. While I am sorry the forced abscond did not turn out as well as you had hoped, it no doubt was a good learning experience and you will be well-prepared for the next opportunity to...

  21. Re: Primitive beekeeping (bee trees, log hives, etc)

    This is an interesting approach, GregV. I imagine you might be able to fetch a premium price for honey harvested from a log hive- it certainly makes for a good story to tell with the product.

    This is interesting- how much surplus was he able to take off?

    It looks like he is shaking the bees off into maybe a poly brood box?
