    Re: Spun (Creamed) Honey issues

    Robert - don't remember the source but if I run into i"ll send it along. I think it may have been a talk from an Apimondia conference.

    Re: Spun (Creamed) Honey issues

    Maybe too high a percentage of glucose which will not crystallize. I can't for the life of me create creamed honey with what my bees produce. I guess the local nectar has a high glucose content. ...

    Re: Reducing bee stings

    I smoke my face before I work the bees. They don't seem to land on my face. I only wear a veil if the bees let me know they're a bit disturbed by head butting, etc.

    Re: Irritating Vegans

    In case you were curious as to why the manager appeared when you asked for urea, it is because it can be used as a major component of explosives.

    Re: Cold storage of bees

    I have seen the same thing here. Tried insulating the hives a couple of years and they didn't do as well as un-insulated hives

    Re: Linden flow

    Lindens in my area are done already. It has been perfect weather for foraging this spring. It rains at least once a week but sunny the rest of the time. I pulled almost 90 lbs of honey off one of...

    Re: two hives, maybe queenless

    You should update your profile with your location. It helps people with any recommendations they might give. Beekeeping is somewhat local.

    They are about 1 hour from the poster.
  15. Re: Need a home for four healthy hives--New Jersey

    Scrambles - a few questions:

    How long have you had these particular bees?
    Are you expecting the new owner to provide their own equipment. If not what equipment will be coming with the bees?...

  17. Re: Neighbor contesting our beekeeping permit - advice for the upcoming hearing?

    No, that's the best way to get arrested for assault and battery.
  18. Re: Neighbor contesting our beekeeping permit - advice for the upcoming hearing?

    I agree. I think part of the reason we're in such a partisan pickle is that not enough people are talking to their neighbors..and honey goes a long way to smoothing things over.

    Re: Weed killer?

    I use straight cider vinegar uncut. It works on many things but not really tough weeds like poison ivy.

    Re: Queen flew off

    Made a somewhat similar mistake a couple of years ago. I had put a frame next to the hive to make room during an inspection. I apparently hadn't noticed that the queen was on the frame. After I...

    Re: If bees were paid the minimum wage

    See my reply above. If you consider the hive as a single organism then once the queen starts laying they can reproduce which would make the hive an adult.
  23. Re: Neighbor contesting our beekeeping permit - advice for the upcoming hearing?

    Congratulations Jesse! Remember to give that neighbor some honey when you are able. To use 2 cliches: good fences make good neighbors but also you catch more flies with honey than with lemon.
  24. Re: Laying Workers-They don't read the same books we do!

    You need to bring the hive much farther away, 2-3 miles.

    Re: If bees were paid the minimum wage

    I think the way you need to approach this is think of the hive as a single organism. So one wage times hours worked. Assuming you're paying minimum wage (keep it at $7/hr for ease of calculation)....
