  1. Re: Bees are omnivores and need the Amino Acids from microbes in bee bead.

    Perhaps we can cultivate strains to make superior patties. The surprise at bees being an omnivore is weird. They should have known that already.

    Re: splits in the same yard

    Yup shake those nurse bees.
  3. Re: OAD dosage and unwise to do a dribble during a dearth?

    I recommend feeding syrup before and during your dribble period. If the bees are hard up on carbs they will try to consume some of the dribble if made with sugar syrup and it is rough on them.

    For sure! Nasty! Cat poop and urine probably would kill mites I'd bet though
  10. Sticky: Re: treating vs. not treating for mites: opinion thread

    I agree with Oldtimer. We also have found that it takes a OAV treatment every 3-4 days for 3 weeks to make the mite populations drop down where they need to be. Very laborious on hundreds of colonies...

  12. Re: Why did my bees die - summer edition

    Viruses or efb we never throw away the combs. Just let them air out for a while. AFB would be a different story but thankfully none of that has ever been here. I just sent in some comb and bee...
  13. Re: Why did my bees die - summer edition

    I truthfully cannot be certain with the pictures. When I see viruses I typically see multiple problems, uncapped purple-eyed stage brood, bald brood, EFB melted down larvae, chalkbrood, and sometimes...
  14. Re: Why did my bees die - summer edition

    Alot of nucs are made off of Almond bees so mite levels and viruses could easily be out of control. Especially if the keeper was feeding patties thru winter. Just in my season my strong hives can...
  15. Re: Why did my bees die - summer edition

    Right and if the colony is weak and the viruses have taken hold even if you killed the mites the colony would be extremely hard to fix. We don't even bother fixing them if we happen to see one. We do...

    Re: Want More Honey

    Just because they are uncapped does not mean they are not ready. You would be surprised how often I test uncapped frames with a refractometer and they are plenty dried out. To get a bigger honeycrop...
  23. Re: How much honey to give your hive land sponsors

    I give mine 2 gallon in bottles. Good bee yards and nice folks to work with are important. Keep their place clean. I tell them if they run out to let me know and I will get them more. We stick 50...

    Re: Simple Harmony Farms uncapper

    It works well on nice combs but so does everything else. Very quick. My wife doesn't like lack of wax gained from extracting. On soft thin celled combs used exclusively for honey it does a good job....
