  1. Re: What hive design yields the most honey? Which yields the most bees?

    Thanks Ruthie!
  2. Re: What hive design yields the most honey? Which yields the most bees?

    I LOVE it! What a gorgeous hive, and what a great idea. I'm the same, it's a PAIN inspecting, having to take off the top brood box to inspect the bottom one. Do you have plans for that box you...

    I've been wondering the same, standard Lang vs Long Lang. Interesting to hear that the Long Lang may produce more honey.

    Re: My First Long Lang

    Wow, very cool. Keep us posted on how it goes, and, how much honey you get. I saw, somewhere on beesource, where someone said you don't get much honey from a Long Lan.

    Re: Acorn frames

    Interesting thread. I wanted to get some Acorn Frames, but balked at the price, $8.00 each :-0, I hadn't thought of another brand, thanks for posting about the Pierco, more affordable for me.

    Re: Foam filled tires

    We've a bobcat with foam filled tires, I LOVE IT!! Before the foam filled tires, going over bumps was a pain, the thing would bounce a lot. Now, it is much more stable. And no flats. Go for it.

    Re: Buckets or Jars?

    Could it be star thistle honey that does not granulate easily?

    Re: Buckets or Jars?

    I store my honey in 5 gallon buckets that have gates on them. I keep the buckets in my pantry, and dispense into quart/pint jars when needed. Maybe because of my location, and how dry the air is...

    Re: OAV in the winter?

    I LOVE OAVing in the winter. Don't have to get up at o'dark thirty to catch them in their hives. We usually have several days where it's above 37, when I can OAV in the winter.

    Re: Planning for my first bee's come spring

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