    Re: Driving while Buzzzzed

    Ha! What an experience, Cathy. :applause: I'm grinning thinking of what a cop would have done had he pulled you over. How'd you get them out when you got home? I know, I know: carefully. :D

    Re: 4yo UltraBee - throw it out?

    Oh, that'd be awesome! Thanks, KiloCharlie.

    It's the dry. The side-by-side trial of new vs. old idea is interesting. Might have to give that a go next year since they'll likely ignore both of...

    Re: 4yo UltraBee - throw it out?

    Dude, you're reading my mind. I was wondering if Karo would work since that's all I can find easily, too. You just saved me some time doing the research and/or asking here. Thanks.

    Last time I...

    Re: 4yo UltraBee - throw it out?

    Interesting link, FlowerPlanter. It says hermetically sealed soy beans last 8-10 years at 70F, so yeah, maybe 4 years non-hermetically might still be okay. Thanks for the link.

    I tried a bit of...

    Re: 4yo UltraBee - throw it out?

    Yeah, they probably will. Wanted to ask them in case they know of any detrimental effects, too. I should have made that more clear in my post - that I'm also asking about new problems it may cause....

    4yo UltraBee - throw it out?

    Just emailed Mann Lake, but thought I'd ask y'all while I wait for their answer.

    Found an opened but unused pail of Ultra Bee in the kitchen cabinets (Oh, what one finds when moving house...). ...
  9. Thanks to y'all, I stopped robbing FAST!

    The Short Story:
    I did it in no time because of all I'd learned here and on Michael Bush's site. :thumbsup: And because I'd read and learned ahead of time, I didn't panic, because I knew what to do...
  10. Re: Recognizing Rader Sidetrack............

    Chiming in late, but with a hearty agreement! I've been the beneficiary of RadEr's mad searching skills and thoughtful advice more than once. (And yeah, I did typo and call him Radar once - but...
  11. Re: Finished my addition on my honey room

    Sweet! It looks great. I bet it'll be a joy to extract this year.

    Re: New Bees

    I got into beekeeping because my dad kept them years ago and I missed them, plus I've been thinking about it for a few years as a $ supplement to my retirement, like Bbruff. I didn't even know...
  13. Re: Won a blue ribbon at the fair for our honey!

    Congratulations! What a wonderful surprise! Yeah, I'd be hanging that ribbon right behind/above the display of honey for sale. :applause:
  14. Re: great new Opportunity need advice on capitalization?

    Yep. And Mother Nature set off fires regularly as well. Down here, it killed the scrub cedar seedlings so they couldn't get a foothold. When the settlers came, they saw fires as bad things so...

  16. Re: great new Opportunity need advice on capitalization?

    Most likely yes. I'm not from your part of the world so if someone else from up your way posts something that is at odds with what I say, believe them instead of me. But in my experience, removing...
  17. Re: great new Opportunity need advice on capitalization?

    You want us to help you, but you come at us with an attitude of what we're doing is wrong and you know all the answers. That makes me, and apparently a few others, rather resistant to helping you. ...
  18. Re: great new Opportunity need advice on capitalization?

    I think you need to start by learning more. You say you've lived it, but it doesn't show in your words. For instance, as Masethonequip said, bloomed hay is not good hay. For a plant to support a...

    Re: First Sting Yesterday

    First time I got stung was kind of anti-climactic for me, too, though it gave me a funny story to tell. Todd, I got stung on the butt, too! First day, full-strength hive - set it in place and left....
  20. Re: Shipping: How hot is too hot for a queen?

    Thought I'd let y'all know what happened. It all went very well, better than I was thinking it would. Luckily they texted me she was in in the middle of the day, so I hit no traffic to speak of -...
  21. Re: Shipping: How hot is too hot for a queen?

    Now that one sounds good! I'll look into the Early AM delivery (BeeWeaver is shipping Next Day). I hope they offer it for my area. I wouldn't mind the drive if I have to. BUT if I don't have to,...
  22. Re: Shipping: How hot is too hot for a queen?

    Thanks for the offer, Ace, but I don't want to play. Mama always said don't poke the crazy.

    Rader, wouldn't that mean more time in a hot delivery truck? I do have a neighbor who's home all day...
  23. Re: Shipping: How hot is too hot for a queen?

    Thanks, y'all! Lots more advice. Greatly appreciated.

    I've got BeeWeaver bees and want to stay with them for now, so there's no looking around for a local one (eventually I'll raise my own,...
  24. Re: Shipping: How hot is too hot for a queen?

    Thanks, y'all. I'll go get her. That's what I was leaning towards anyway despite NOT looking forward to that drive. Don't know if I can definitely do it early in the day, so I'll be testing out...
  25. Re: Caterpillars on my walnut and pecan trees!

    Oh. Dude. Wow. I'd be jumping to do something, too, with that history. A couple hard hits in as many years and that can definitely spell trouble.

    You got some good stuff though. Garden Safe...
