    Re: New England beekeeper's winter journal

    Not really sure about the pollen situation as I didn't go deep into it. I thought it wasn't a good idea to feed pollen now? The chewed centers of the capped cells look like the brood started chewing...

    Re: New England beekeeper's winter journal

    Hive #3 dead. Saw several small clusters of bee butts sticking out of cells. Found several capped brood cells with the center chewed out. Lots of honey and mountain camp still. Seems most bees were...

    Re: New England beekeeper's winter journal

    Today I found hive #2 had its entrance reducer pulled out. I used the reducer to sweep out the many dead bees on the bottom. Crazy amount of dead bees and I'm not sure what pulled out the reducer. I...

    Re: Why do Beeks stack supers so high?

    Question to all you multiple-stackers: Do you put the new super on top, or do you put it on the bottom?

    Re: New England beekeeper's winter journal

    Very nice Robert, glad to see all of your hives active. Good luck with the 40f temps two weeks from now in Rhode Island! Do you do a consistent mite check?

    Re: New England beekeeper's winter journal

    Looks like dead. I tapped on the hives and didn't hear anything. Maybe they'll surprise me?? The cluster going up to the feeder rim hole is suspicious to me. They were definitely going towards that...

    Re: New England beekeeper's winter journal

    Looking back on the calendar, it looks like hives 1 & 3 are the ones I pulled honey off of this year. I definitely left them frames of honey and put mountain camp knowing they would be least likely...

    New England beekeeper's winter journal

    Had a quick look at the 4 hives today in this balmy 45F degree weather. Two doing cleansing flights, hives 1 and 3 looked inactive.

    Both inactives had mountain camp still on top. The one hive was...
  9. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    My calculations are probably wrong, but it looks like around 3.70/ lb usd. Bulk is much less, but with your volume that seems pretty substantial. I'm surprised with that much honey per hive you're...
  10. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    Started with 2 hives this year. Bought a nuc. Caught one of my swarms. Lost one of my swarms (that I know of). Final harvest was around 5 gallons off of two hives. Now trying to overwinter 4 hives.

  11. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    Damm (had to get past the auto-censor)! What price do you get for honey in your area? Seems like that much honey could seriously dilute the price you can get.

    Re: What to ask at allergy Dr

    I wonder if Primatene Mist is a suitable substitute to an Epi pen. Both are epinephrine I think. Seems it would be easier to breathe in a cheap OTC inhaler as opposed to jabbing yourself with a pen....
  14. Re: Taped seams created moisture buildup- hopefully removed it in time

    Maybe a classic case of trying to completely insulate a house without allowing for airflow?

    Re: What's up with the all the Bircomb?

    Is normal. Just remove it so they can't keep building off of it and create a further mess you'll need to deal with at some point.
    Put it in a baggie along with the rest of the comb you might want to...

    Re: Sugar $0.39 / lb at walmart.com

    Just bought 40 lbs at .39 a pound. Didn't get free delivery until I spent $35, so just tacked on a couple of other items I was going to buy next time I went shopping anyway.

    All is not lost if you go with deep supers. When, not if, you find them too heavy to deal with you can always, always use the spare deep boxes.
  18. Re: Did I screw up/ critique my first batch. I wanted a carbonated sweet mead

    Yeah, that probably would have been the route to go. The batch came out really nice, but dry and still. I added one of those sugar tablets in each bottle, but it never carbonated. Do you think it...

    Why scrape when you have the pressure washer? I was given a bunch of old frames and the pressure washer just blew through the old wax.

    I'm not sure if I'd base what's safe on whether you felt something or not. You probably won't cough breathing in asbestos or radon for a while either.

    Poll: Re: Engineering Project

    One of the most brilliant engineers I've ever worked with (actually THE most brilliant) had horrible grammar. I guess his mind had better things to think about.

    Re: Why would bees be doing this? See picture

    Who knows. My bees beard when it's seemingly cooler on some days and don't when it's warmer on other days. And then it's raining and they're bearding like crazy, and the next it's dry and they're not.

    Poll: Re: Engineering Project

    A strangely vague and subjective question. Not too heavy for some, but too heavy for others would be my vague response.

    Re: Todays Honey Prices!

    Ha! Same with me. This year is the first year I started selling it - $15 a pint. I remind them that it's actually $10 a pound (actually less with the mason jar included). My friend asked where was...
