    Re: Buying an Extractor....

    Alan, there is quite a bit of good advise here....
    Personally, I never did C&S, I wanted the drawn comb as a resource to give back to the hive. For my first several years, we just did a 2F hand...

    Re: Single Brood Box Question

    The cluster will move up as they go through winter (though I bet here in the mountains it is much different than Florida) and you would endanger the queen being trapped below and outside of the...
  4. Re: Do you clean and reuse plastic foundation or throw them away?

    Well drawn comb is far to valuable to destroy.

    Badly drawn/drone on worker, smashed, really old, badly infested, yes. After scraping down and adding to melt, I scrub off what I can with a stiff...

    Re: New one for me... thoughts?

    Going back to revisit it. I am going to flex the combs apart and look for capped brood... if the queen is laying out there then there probably is no in there, eh?!

    Re: Extracting honey for comb

    Congrats on your first cut-out!

    MB nailed it, crush and strain.
    One idea for you- on cut-outs where there isn't much honey, I give it back to them but above the crown board in an empty box....
  10. Re: After Extracting, what to do with the frames?

    kjmclark, beekeeping is very local, could you please put your location in your information.

    This time of year (for me), ALL frames go back on the hives ASAP, foundation in slots 3 & 7.

    Re: Todays Honey Prices!

    Sectional density! most of my honey hits 22oz+ at the fill line in a pint mason jar. However, I do have one apiary where I capture a tree nectar based honey that will barely hit 20oz in a pint jar!

    Re: Mating Flights vs. Robber Screen

    Hobo, I have a question: Is the worker bee of more intelligence than the queen?

    All queens know how to get in if they came out, just as any other bee.
    All my increase/breeder nucs have robber...

    Has anyone put queen castles sitting on their production hives?

    Another way to put it, has anyone used the outer two...
