    Re: Swarm causes

    Think of a hive of bees as an organism (rather than a group of individual bees). Once an organism (pretty much any animal) has adequate food, what is next on the agenda? Well, duh, reproduction!...

    Re: Quote replies/posts?

    As an 'add-on' to Jack's comments, one can replicate the "quote box" often seen in Beesource posts without actually using the "Reply With Quote" button.

    What is needed to do that (without the...

    Re: Global Warming

    I agree. And while I look in on this thread regularly, the *best* way to deal with Spam is to use the "Report Post" button in the lower left corner of each message. The icon for that button looks...
  5. Re: FAKE ADOBE FLASH UPDATE WITHIN THIS FORUM

    I don't have any magic solution to this problem. Personally I switched my desktops to Linux/Ubuntu some years ago and don't have these kinds of issues. But obviously, Linux is not a practical...

    Re: Covid 19 Bread

    For those that do find commercial yeast useful, I recommend buying by one pound packages (or 2 single 'pound' packages bundled together). Put a small quantity of yeast in a small jar, and store that...
  7. Re: I need experienced opinions help, do you think these are supercedure cells?

    You are doing fine.

    But please only create one thread for a given issue. In this case, for some reason, the forum software decided to 'moderate' your thread. After some delay, I saw &...
  8. Re: Please Help Me Determine If I can Legally Beekeep

    I agree with Saltybee. The county I live in has a building code in effect. All kinds of rules, permits, inspections and, of course, fees. :)

    However, what they don't tell you about at the...
  9. Re: Help: Im new, Only have ~ 1/4 of my package of bees left, after several mistakes.

    Honeybees cannot deal with the concept of glass between them and the sun. They navigate by polarized light and the glass interferes with their navigation system. Do not put a hive of honeybees in a...

    Re: Covid 19 Bread

    While I do have a KitchenAid 6qt mixer, an inexpensive alternative that I use more often is a bread machine from a 2nd-hand store. I pay around $8-$12 for bread machines at a local Habitat For...

    Re: Creamed Honey Description

    Jonathan, once you have honey on a 'retail store' shelf, you are likely competing with other honey producer's products in the same store. And its tough to tell a convincing story in the space...

  15. Re: Opening a section doesn't auto mark itself as read ?

    Do you have Beesource "cookies" enabled? Or blocked?

    Cookies need to be accepted if you want the forum software to 'remember' what you have read.
  16. Re: Opening a section doesn't auto mark itself as read ?

    You didn't specify HOW you "go back", but that may be the issue. If you just use the "Go back one page" button in FF (upper left button), then you get the same page that was displayed earlier. If...

    Re: What to Plant in 1/4 Acre

    I don't think it matters a whole bunch. Note that where I am, if I don't mow once or twice a year. I get trees:eek: growing. For sure, mow before the trees, get un-mowable.

    Re: What to Plant in 1/4 Acre

    The odds are, that unless you are prepared to continuously manage this plot, that a simple "wildflower" mix is your best option. Few (individual) plants continuously provide bee nectar/pollen over a...

    Well, I couldn't find that as a thread either. But that doesn't mean a whole bunch. :)

    Re: Top Bar Comb Spacing Problems

    I notice that you used 1x2s for 'bars'. If you didn't cut any off the 1.5" side (to make them thinner, say 1 3/8"), then that may be why the bees are not utilizing your bar spacing.

    You could try...
  23. Re: Electric fence charger - how do I charge my battery, and how long will it last?

    You really can't make those kinds of assumptions. The output of the solar charger will vary, based on the sun/cloud coverage. And the demand of the fence charger will vary based on weed contact, ...
