    Hi Jim - I’m just north of you in Nacogdoches. I’ve currently got mine supered up to catch some goldenrod nectar. You should have goldenrod down there as well. It will usually stop about the first...

    So I had slid in a mite board to do a mite count (which I didn’t do), so the SBB was closed, but not sealed completely if that makes sense.

    I left my hive sealed up - UGH!

    OK guys, I’m so ticked off at myself. I made a HUGE mistake and I deserve any verbal abuse that I get. I went to a hive on my hunting lease last night to apply the last round of oxalic acid...

    I have used them in the past. They should work on soft ground and help distribute the weight. I’m not sure if they would help with beetles.

    I had a similar experience this past Spring. New queen laid great for about a month, and then I started noticing multi egg cells. Several days went by and they killed her. The laying worker...

    You will likely notice a decrease in brood production. This is normal. You’ll want to have the appropriate amount of honey stores going into winter. We usually have some goldenrod nectar flow going...

    I guess my color perspective is limited. I have always considered it lighter because it about as light as I get around here. It’s about the same color as the early spring honey I harvest in April....

    I like to think that the lighter colored (clover, privet, holly, Chinese Tallow etc. around here) honey sells faster than the darker honey from my honor stand, but every fall I'm proven wrong. The...

    I haven’t sold any that way. I’m not really sure how it would taste if you mixed it up. My guess is not as good as the tallow honey by itself, just my opinion. That tallow honey is hard to beat. ...

    Sorry to hear that. This time of year I would suspect varroa as the culprit for causing them to move out. Did you treat them? You may check the bottom board for dead mites.
