    Re: Startup Company Making "Super Bees"

    I can see a new and very expensive honey variety coming from bees that coked up. Night Blooming Jasmine honey.

    Caution, may be toxic, but so...
  2. Re: new beehive designed to stop bees from dying over winter, and to have 24/7 monito

    In a way, these straw man side tracks are on topic, in that they show that others have had what they considered brilliant and innovative ideas that simply fell flat when presented to a broader market...

    Re: A question about feeding

    Congratulations on having more honey than you can use. You may do as you indicated but, have you considered making a small batch of mead? A little something to warm you up when it gets cold?

    Re: Caged queen killed

    What you are describing is classic for the "queenless" nuc to have a queen that is simply no longer laying. The stronger nuc viewed the caged queen as unecessary and killed her by stinging through...

    Re: Potato cultivating....

    Good to know about the ashes. Had not considered the K component. Years ago I ran a bunch of potassium that I got from my work on some root crops. Banner year for the beets and the carrots.
  6. Re: U of Montana Apprentice Level Beekeeping Class

    Not all master beekeeper programs are created equal. I have heard that the ones offered by EAS and U of M are among the best. Virginia's program is supposed to be modeled on the EAS one and is a...
  7. Re: Lanternfly control efforts impacting bees?

    I think I will pass on the Kopi Luwak. I was familiar with it from years ago thinking it was disgusting back then. Still think it is. SLF honey on the other hand does not sound that bad...

    Sticky: Re: Treatment-Free Bungling 2018 - ?

    George Imerie lived in Maryland, about 150 miles north of me. The weather he described is accurate. For the past 25 years living in Richmond, I know that there will be several very warm days in...

    Re: Potato cultivating....

    I really need to get the soil tested. Been burning a lot of old wood and leaves in the garden and that usually ends up making the soil alkaline. I used to spread pelletized lime on the yard and...
  11. Re: questions and theories on how OA kills mites

    dudelt, I know they are dead when they drop because I do not bother oiling my boards. When an infected hive drops over 1000 dead mites in three days, one has to figure that they were dead when they...
  12. Re: questions and theories on how OA kills mites

    I like that you are thinking outside of the (bee) box. The problem I see is that in grooming, most of the mites survive and are killed when they drop onto the oil coated sticky board. With OAV, the...

    Re: infused honey

    A friend of mine just returned from Scotland and brought me a bottle of a scotch/ honey blend. It is more like a liqueur at 19.8% alc. by volume (about 40 proof). Have not tried it yet.

    Re: What are your hobbies?

    When I was 9 years old, my dad was a member of the auxiliary police force in Ft. Lauderdale. We would go to the range when it was not being used and sift bullets from the backstop. Afterwards we...

    Re: My first Melomel - elderberry mead

    "Get at least a wine/beer/champagne yeast."

    Oh, I will. In my defense, the wine making was back in 1975 and I was 15 at the time, using a recipe that was written on an index card. My solution to...

    I hope you encouraged them to attend beekeeping classes and offered to sell them some bees this Spring. A few extra hives nearby will not have an adverse imapct on your operation unless they decide...

    Most of us that are OA only give the bees a treatment around the end of November, Thanksgiving weekend if you will, and then again at Christmas. Seems to work pretty well for going into Spring with a...

    Re: Wax Moths

    Stick the supers back on your hives for a few days. The bees should clean them out. They would probably appreciate the added protein.

    Just like with jumping a car battery, I would suspect you had a bad connection at the battery terminals that caused this problem. Can't think of anything else besides a wiring problem with the wand....
