  3. Re: Should I buy an established hive in Oct in Upstate NY

    Very true...

    At this point in my journey I have sworn off used equipment. There is american foul brood cruising around west tn. If I even catch a swarm from anywhere except my own yard it gets...
  4. Re: Should I buy an established hive in Oct in Upstate NY

    Drawn comb is valuable if it is clean... IE - Generally free of harmful chemicals. If the seller is a "stand up guy" it should be.

    I would have loved to have drawn comb to use when I was just...
  5. Re: What is the best way to clean plastic waxed foundation?

    I have been melting my processed beeswax in an old crock pot and rolling it onto the frames with a small foam trim roller. It works pretty well and I get a pretty heavy coating of wax like that. The...

    Re: Where to buy bulk sugar?

    I don't know what happened... I've been paying 11 and 12 dollars per 25 pounds and trips to sams club would get me 50 lbs for 20 or 21 bucks.

    This morning I bought two 25 lb bags for 7.60 each. I...

    Re: Getting comb drawn 'on demand'.

    I wonder if the main driver here is restricting the queen to just 5 frames. The young queen is laying lots of eggs or needs to... Worker bees from 3 boxes feel compelled to draw the combs for the...

    Re: Getting comb drawn 'on demand'.

    Very interesting... Hopefully the mystery unravels sooner than later.

    I have checkered sheets and sheets of foundation into the brood nest late in the flow or as it wraps up and most often they...

    Re: Todays Honey Prices!

    :eek: $18 dollars a pint? Wow! I can't remember if that is just a little more or less than a pound. I am leaning toward slightly less at the moment. I have been selling the 1 pound squeeze bottles...
  11. Re: Enticing Bees To Draw Comb And Store Nectar In Super

    I find extra-waxing isn't as enticing if applied too far in advance, for some reason I can't figure out.

    Good luck!

    I noticed that too and also wondered why. My gut tells me it...

    Re: my bees are being jerks

    I have a few of what I call mean hives. No fun to work with bees flying up my sleeves and up in my veil but even then they were only like that when I went into them. In 5 years I've only been...

    Re: Is my idea brilliant or stupid?

    Thanks.

    600 watts sounds like a lot but heaters, and heating elements, from what I have seen can require some pretty high wattage's. I wouldn't think it would be like toaster but I'm not sure....

    Re: Is my idea brilliant or stupid?

    The foot pedal thing sounds good. Even the power strip but my glass top range is already crowded and pretty sticky for extra cords.

    I currently use a serrated cold knife to uncap. In the past I...

    Re: Michael and I team-up in Sarasota

    I've always thought that even if there was insulation in the cavity, the bees carried it out in little bits like they remove the paper from a newspaper combine. Never seen them do it... just assuming.

    Re: My wax smells?? Can I reuse?

    I am a little bit concerned by the afb references to smelly wax. I lost a hive to hive beetles last year and didn't render the wax in a timely manner. It was pretty gross when I dumped it out of the...

    Re: treating for varroa in the winter

    I don't know if its necessary but I wait for a day when the bees are flying. There are usually warm days here and there. I would think the bees would need to not be in cluster for the vapor to be as...

    Re: Manuka Honey Making, New Zealand

    Wow! Thats pretty cool. Amazon sells what they call certified manuka honey for 68 dollars for an 8.8 oz jar. As I understand it the stuff is not primarily for eating but for medicinal purposes.

    Re: Brushy Mountain Closing?

    :doh:

    It would make more sense that it would be the prison.

    Its just down the interstate from me here but I have never laid eyes on it.

    Must have closed it about the time James Earl Ray died.
