    Re: Global Warming

    Re: First Frost Thread.

    Spotty frost here on Oct.10 &11th. It killed soybeans across the road, but my tomatoes survived on both nights. I reduced entrances to 2" on all the hives on Oct. 8th. :thumbsup:

    Re: Cost of 3# package of bees in 1949

    I was only two yrs. old at the time, so I don't recall the real price, but I'll guess $2.29 per package.

    Re: Mountain Camp - proactive or reactive?

    Me too. I use the bricks because they are easier to handle going on AND easier to take off when foraging begins in the spring. Loose sugar is a PITA to take off gracefully. :D

  21. Re: Bee Excluder with empty super below a good idea?

    Not sure I understand the question, but putting an empty super (without frames) on a hive may get you wonky comb. Why do you want to make it harder for them to get to the honey super?

    Re: What are your hobbies?

    M80's were great fun, but a 3 or 4" salute would make the babies in the crowd cry in short order......and they there were 4" & 5" salutes. You not only hear them...you felt them. :D
