    Re: Real honey vs sugarwater honey?

    Can't tell by looking at it. Honey runs the gamut of colors from almost clear to dark as molasses. If it tastes good, eat it.
  3. Re: Urgent Question: Just spun out frames, how do I recover the wax?

    They'll fix pretty much anything.
  4. Re: How is that Global Warming thing working out for you?

    78 degrees here on February 06, 2019 in NC. Record breaking. Maybe we need to change the subject . . . .

    Re: WHERE are the real treatment free beekeepers?

    Are we talking semantics or beekeeping? Check out some quantum mechanics and you can even get more confused. Walking by the hives and taking a look at them without even opening the hives changes...

    Re: varroa heat treatment?

    I was just looking and beehivethermalindustries now has one for a five frame nuc. I am thinking of investing in one for eight frame hives. Should I? Any advice is appreciated.

    Sticky: Re: Alternative way to keep (have?) bees.

    Yet the genome shifts at this very moment, and it's delusionary to think you can stop it. I agree that the OP is not likely to see evolution at work in his apiary, but it is there nonetheless, just...

    Re: Howdy!

    You'll find that we are all on that quest. You never stop learning. The bees are the teachers.
  9. Re: Found wild colony-cut out or leave til spring?

    I have a similar situation except I am way further South in NC. I found a colony in the walls of an old storage building. I am leaving them until the Spring because I know there is a risk of killing...
  10. Re: On the spot queen rearing questions (lots of them)

    Please. Dispatch = to send away, to kill. Taking the original queen away to start a weak nuke is dispatching her, creating a queenless hive for cell starting, rearing, and establishing a brood break....
  11. Re: On the spot queen rearing questions (lots of them)

    I just want to chime in on a few points that I think are being misunderstood about OTS.

    One is that the parent hive does get a brood break because the queen is dispatched so they will raise new...

    Enjoyed them. I'll bet you don't need those gloves with those girls though.

    Re: Using old frames with cells

    Is the queen still in her cage? If so I would wait until I was ready to take the cage out in a few more days to add your comb, but doing so now probably is fine too. It will certainly give them a leg...

    Re: Using old frames with cells

    If you are getting package bees this is good advice. If you are getting a nuc it is not. Keep the brood chamber intact.
  15. Re: Help cutting open old hot water heater with bees

    I'm not an expert, but it looks like the perfect opportunity to do a forced abscond. Drill a hole in the opposite end of the opening and add a little smoke. They should walk out of there.

    In response to Badbeekeeper.

    The way it works as I understand it is that some viruses are worse than others. Some may be not that bad at all. You and I are probably walking around with a few in...

    Re: Cut out in old barn -- need advice

    I'm not sure if I could recognize whether cells were polished or not. Even if I knew what to look for, these old eyes probably couldn't see it.

    Not sure if I uploaded the pictures correctly, but my brother and I went and got this colony out of the wall cavity today. There were lots of bees, very little brood, and a healthy-looking...

    I appreciate the responses as this is my first rodeo. Great advice, enjambres (I believe that's Nancy, right?), as there are a lot of things in your response I hadn't thought about. I will make sure...

    Cut out in old barn -- need advice

    I have an opportunity to do a cut-out from the walls of an old barn. They are between some old tin on the outside and plywood on the inside. I do not have a bee vacuum. They should be fairly easy to...

  24. Re: when/should I treat occupied traps for mites?

    Can't blame a guy for trying. Put swarm traps out today -- two of them anyway. I plan on putting out a few more. I am surprised to see a swarm with the weather we have been having.
  25. Re: when/should I treat occupied traps for mites?

    I am just a newbie and still have a lot to learn, but I don't understand your concern for treating them right away.

    Facts are:
