    Re: Cost of 3# package of bees in 1949

    Well not a lot of participation but I have a predicament declaring a winner as I didn't officially declare "Price is Right Rules". Those rules would say Tim was the winner with his $229 guess. ...

    Just for the record it was a partnership of 2 brothers so their joint income was pretty close to the mean.

    A current thread inspired me to browse through an old beekeeping journal of my father where I found this line item from the spring of 1949.

    Re: Updates on using oxalic acid w/shop towels

    Thanks for the great report OT. I'm not familiar with that material. Is it rigid enough to slide in or do the frames need to be spread to insert them? Also curious if the bees readily repair the...
  12. Re: Alabama IRS Denies Losses due to "Pre Production Phase"

    If you are trying to write off the losses of hives, the IRS won't go for that. You were already allowed deductions on the expenses that went into the hives.

    Re: HFCS feeding and ratios

    Adding 10% water by volume makes a nice feed. It takes a bit of stirring to get it properly incorporated.

  20. Re: Will bees accept wax moth damages frames and clean them up?

    They will do most of the cleanup themselves but I like to pull the majority of the webbing off first and not put badly damaged combs side by side. Also, bees will not clean out the cocoons that form...
