    Re: What to ask at allergy Dr

    If you are allergic to pollen, you know that is a potential problem, right? Perhaps it can be dealt with by wearing the proper protection depending how allergic you are. You could ask for a bee venom...

    Re: BT On Honey Frames

    Put off doing the honey frames hoping to hear an opinion. Anyone? If I don't know for sure I will rotate through the freezer and store them in a bin. J
  3. Re: Orange pollen in Early october, Northeast US?

    There is no dandelion in Vermont. Occasionally you might see one or two this time of year in a sunny location in someone's yard. Most were gone by the end of June. There might be more further south,...

    That's true mine is a yellow, pretty sure not goldenrod. J

    Re: Best Bee Smoker

    I have thought this would solve my smoker problems too. Congrats and hats off for actually doing it. I am more of a thinker than doer, but tomorrow I am drinking a beer and giving it a try. Thanks...
  6. Re: Taped seams created moisture buildup- hopefully removed it in time

    I doubt the tape is the issue. Bees seal my hives air tight with propolis and I don't have a mold issue with proper ventilation. If I mess with the boxes late in the season, I seal them with...

    Re: Problem with oxalic acid wand

    What JP said is your first step with a fully charged battery. If it gets hot but doesn't vaporize, I suspect your OA has too much moisture. Last thing I would suspect is the wand, given its age.

    I posted a nearly identical question earlier. Check it out. Michael Palmer thinks is Aster. J

    Re: What Pollen Are They Gathering Now In NE?

    Thanks Michael. All I am seeing here is blue aster which they don't seem to touch, at least around my property. Time to take a walk and see what I can see. J

    Re: What Pollen Are They Gathering Now In NE?

    I seem to remember a color chart for pollen. Can't find it on pollen.com. Anyone know where it is? No dandy's here and no hawkweed that I can see. I'm thinking its something growing in the woods...

    Re: What Pollen Are They Gathering Now In NE?

    Thanks guys. Forgot about pollen.com. Wish they posted better pics and the color of the pollen. Only thing listed that is a possibility is ragweed, but I am doubting it. Is it bright yellow? J

    What Pollen Are They Gathering Now In NE?

    My bees are bringing in a lot of yellow pollen the past few days. It looks similar to goldenrod, but that has died off. I suppose its possible there is a patch somewhere but I do not see any driving...

    Re: Cost of 3# package of bees in 1949

    Interesting. In today's dollars, $3.50 in 1949 equals $36.49. So the price of a 3lb package has sure outpaced inflation. J

    BT On Honey Frames

    Planning on spraying BT on my comb today for winter storage. In the past, I have only sprayed brood comb. I would like to do the honey combs too because I do not have enough space in my freezer this...

    Re: Mouse guard,entrance and snow today

    I wouldn't bother to clean the BB until the next time it warms up. Then smoke them to get any out of the way. J

    Re: Wax moth prevention in storing

    I got mine yesterday and it is 2 years old! The seller represents that it is fresh stock shipped directly from Valent. Do not buy from this liar, cheat and fraud: https://www.ebay.com/itm/264476608439

    Re: Wax moth prevention in storing

    Eric, they do have a code on the package, but you have to decode it. There is a thread here about it from last year. I will post it if I can find it. J

    Re: Getting bees to move into Deep

    Next year add the deep to the top of a box that is 80% drawn out, not under it. They like to move up. They are also reluctant to draw out frames on the sides so you need to swap them out for one that...

    Re: honey moisture

    What Frank suggested will work. As a guy with only a few hives, its worth the trouble for me. If you have room, a tub or shower stall works well to enclose the space. Another option is to use the...
