Unfortunately I NEVER win anything, ever! :)
Has anyone have an opinion on the Betterbee Premium smoker? I looked for the Kelly smoker that was recommended but itís is out of stock....
That was beautiful. :)
The honey crystallizes anyway but easier to dispense. We have City people that come up here in the Catskills Mtns, and they like choices. I don’t use labels, not to insult anyone but I think they’re...
We did that and it still crystallized on the bottom, and it is on a butcher block counter so we can dispense it to customers; our next step is to buy a seedling warming pad that would be used for...
What rwlaw said; I learned that also.
As you stated on bee-l on why you wanted to post this, at least you tried!
Welcome, check out NY Bee Wellness website. :)
:rolleyes: Yikes I missed it too ! :lpf:
A mystery....maybe newly hatched winter bees investigating stuff? Some of mine were orienting, not as many as last time though.
Mine were out seeking water.
Rusty Burlew of Honey Bee Suite has a bunch of articles on comb honey how to’s. Very informative.
I can’t help myself, I am chiming in with the somewhat experience with my experiment. I used a top bar hive placed within the apiary but on the far end away from the other hives and did not treat at...
Little John ď Charles Darwin went to a great deal of trouble to distinguish between Human Selection and Natural Selection, with the first four chapters of 'Origin of Species' being devoted to...
Did you really mean “flying kids”? Cause I have some of them too. :)
Today we have a warmer day than the last few really COLD days here in the NE. The sugar shims are on all but 2 hives, and saw many hives that had orienting bee’s. I’m very happy with that.
I’ll take some of those fritters! :thumbsup:;)
Did they give you an approximate price for the frame and who would be funding this? Just curious. Also, it’s a deep frame, many hobbyist beekeepers are or have already transitioned to all mediums. ...
Good point, they did mention something about the heat; I liken it to doing a sugar roll where the mites detach from the bee because of the heat. As for propolizing the space, in their experiments...
Somehow it senses the color of the mite and the shininess of their bodies, which is why it will detect a trop. mite also.
They also mentioned it would kill tropilaelaps mites too, if they ever get into the US. Someone mentioned at the end how it would work with Dr Bromenshenks Bee Guru App.
I just listened to Bee Culture/Kim Flotum podcast. Grow-NY has a competition with a million dollar prize. One of the finalists have invented a frame that zaps the mites on the bees. Very innovative...
Yes. I started bees for “me”, at a much needed time in my life. I love the bees and don’t want to grumble about caring for them.
