    Re: Leaving supers off the hive

    Ha, I was just about to post a new thread with basically the same question. My last extraction process was a mess as the uncapped honey in the frames just leaked everywhere until I got to crush and...

    Re: Full Sun?

    So would you say the entrance position has something to do with it, or not so much? If my hives all got the same sunlight, should I worry about entrance location?

    edit: wow, didn't see how old the...

    Yeah, I definitely screwed up planning. I could have easily given myself more room, but now I don't feel like pulling up the electric fence posts that I spent so much energy on hammering into the...

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

    It says product of Argentina and USA, so I'm assuming mostly from Argentina.

    Re: Apivar Dosage question

    You're obviously successful with your hives and I am certainly not someone with enough experience to critique anyone. I'm slowly learning the best treatment course for my hives, which basically means...
  6. Re: OA vape 5 days vs. 7 days apart - what do you recommend?

    A lot of unhealthy things are in our foods, but we certainly don't want to add to them if we can avoid it.

    How close can I set my hives

    I have a small fenced area in which I anticipated being able to set 4 hives in a row and another 4 in a row in front. I never really considered working them though. So the front four would basically...

    Re: HELP ME! no fall flow?? lazy bees???

    I'm about an hour and 15 minutes north of you, but you guys have basically the same forage. I know your area has lots of apple orchards, so maybe monoculture is an issue?

    Combining with 2 queens

    So say we're in a dearth and the queen isn't (or queens aren't) laying and you go into the hive(s) and don't find her (them) and combine, what actually happens if there are 2 queens? Will the 2...

  13. Re: not new to bee stings, but I just had a real bad reaction

    I think there are so many variables that it's impossible to predict. Depth of sting. Location of sting. Is stinger still attached? I got stung 10+ times through my suit, but none of the stingers were...

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

    17.29 for delivery to my area for 5 pounds, so about 3.50 a pound. Sounds like a great deal until I read "Product of Argentina and US". What's that mean? How much Argentina:US ratio? Can it be 99%...

    Re: 2 New Bee Questions...

    Maybe with a dearth the bee population diminishes, thus setting themselves up for a smaller colony in the winter that'll go through their stores more slowly?

    I actually have absolutely no idea,...

    Re: Stuff in the honey; what to do

    I do the same bucket method but just lightly crush it with a potato masher and use a double sieve stainless strainer. Works great. I'd restrain/ refilter again if I were you. You don't want to mix...

    You're really not making this easy on me!

    I'm not even certain I could find the queen.
  20. Re: OA vape 5 days vs. 7 days apart - what do you recommend?

    The attraction of OA to each other to form bigger crystals is due to gravitational forces?

    The black wasps invade my porch and the yellow jackets try to invade my hives. Well, they used to. I think with more hives=less yellow jackets. I actually don't think I've seen many at all this year,...

    Re: How to not care for bees:

    I like how he has them inside with an outside cover that he opens or closes but it's pretty much open to the garage anyway. I'd pay to be there the day the bees think it's warm enough to take a dump,...
