    Re: Richinbama 2018-2019 beekeeping quest

    JW, your goals sound similar to mine. I hope to go into next winter with 20 hives. I don't think I can maintain 20 production right now, but will probably shoot for 10 with the others being used...

    Checkerboarding up kept my strongest from swarming. You have to keep on top of them though. I was using empty frames since I didn't have extra comb.

    That is a fast sell. How did you advertise? Did you sell it by the gallon? Sounds like you are in a good place to have a booming spring this coming year. I'm still using my manual two framer. I...

    Re: 2018/19 Journal NW Florida Gulf Coast

    My other hives from local queens and some hygienics I bought two years ago are doing well. Biggest problem with them is the goldenrod coming in a month late. How many hives are you at atm?

    Went out to check that they aren't building up moisture and to put some sugar trays on and we are down to 14. Nearly every hive we have lost was from a Dixie Bee aka Fat Bee Man queen we bought this...

    Re: oa dribble freqency

    What mix did you use? Could it have been that the treatment came to late?

    I'm looking to use the mix listed on scientific beekeeping.

    Re: WHAT TO DO, IN NEED OF HELP

    It moths got your hive, it was probably weak from some other issue. Strong hives keep them out. Next time freeze all effected frames.

  22. Re: What to do with all the supers full of sugar syrup

    ditto JW. Also, I don't like to harvest honey off a hive that syrup on them because the bees can and do move the sugar around. When I harvest honey, I want it to be pure honey, not adulterated.

    One of our local guys suspects the same thing, but he is a small scale hobbyist. I suspect it happens more than we know.

    That is great that the nuc has a queen. Dragon flies are beautiful, but I now feel a sense of disappointment when seeing them and knowing queen rearing is at an end.
