  1. Re: funny story, really short on facts but high on speculation

    Careful there Gregv. I posted exactly that and was called a "dirty apiary" and "mite bomb waiting to happen".

    Sad thing is, they are going into year 7 as my strongest hives. I opened the hives...

    Re: Well this might change things!

    I have been studying bees for some time now. I have read countless books, read hundreds of web pages, watched hundreds of hours of videos. Never once did I hear or read up to 50 drones. The average...

  7. Re: Advice on finding properties to place beehives?

    My local Tractor supply has a message board that you could place said note on.

    The way I read that, you are saying is that if the article I provided is not scientific, then it has no merit? If that is the case then 90% of what is on this forum and what has been read in other...

    I also never said I thought it was a good idea for the op to chance it being a long distance from home. I was stating what I have experienced with a more or less set and forget approach.

    Re: Set It and Forget It?

    I never said I do not check on the hives. In fact I watch the entrances to make sure they are bringing in pollen every week. I highly doubt that I had a hive die and swarm move in in a weeks time....

    Re: Set It and Forget It?

    Re: Set It and Forget It?

    Absolutely not. I think it should be tried everywhere but who am I to tell one how to keep their bees? Much less call them a fool for trying something out of the box.

    I agree.
    It is also why alot of people will not post in a forum, including myself.

    I for one disagree that a set and forget approach is a mite bomb. In fact I find it to be quite the opposite. I...

    Re: Combine to increase honey yield?

    Here is what I would do.


    Take the 2 mediums from hive 3 and put it above hive 1 over excluder.
