  1. Re: Old Beeks: Have you built up any immunity to stings?

    I said those who don't wear PPE and brag about getting stung a lot is dumb, and I stand by that. I am a second year beek by the way, lost all my bees in the first season by taking advice on this...
  2. Re: Old Beeks: Have you built up any immunity to stings?

    First of all, didn't want to offend anyone too bad. I am sure that system works good for you, and you are probably a very experienced beekeeper. Many people work in the heat with gear on and do not...

    Re: Queen stopped laying

    I am in West Georgia, and most of my queens have slowed way down on laying. In my limited experience, hot weather and a dearth seem to make the queens slow down laying. Right now I am seeing most...
  5. Re: Old Beeks: Have you built up any immunity to stings?

    Don't listen to these folks that brag about not wearing protection and getting stung a lot. They are not tough, they are dumb. The only reason you should get stung multiple times daily is because...

    Re: Bees are definitely africanized!

    What are you basing this on and why would you bet it is not AHB? I have ten hives that were all triple deep with brood, thanks to opening the sides of the broodnest. None of these colonies are...

    Re: NO BEES

    I would know my mite load from the last count. If you don't know your current mite load, good luck to you.
  9. Re: Deformed wing virus in a treatment free hive.

    Riverderwent, I am glad to see you are currently having success without knowing your mite levels. I would like to refer to the Jeff Harris article in the May 2015 issue of Bee Culture. In the...

    Re: robber screens have bees confused?

    They will figure it out, just leave them be.
  11. Re: Deformed wing virus in a treatment free hive.

    Oh, and if you do an alcohol wash on this hive, it would be great to know what you find. It could help lots of other beekeepers that have the same problem. Good luck to you no matter what happens.
  12. Re: Deformed wing virus in a treatment free hive.

    No offense intended here, but 'looking' for mites on bees is not the way to check mite loads. You should be performing alcohol washes on a regular basis, and you should always know your current mite...

    Re: splitting a laying worker hive?

    I did not read all the posts, but when I had this problem last season, I got advice from a commercial beek in my area. He told me to place the lw hive on top of a queen right hive and do a newspaper...

    Re: Silly bees

    No comb advice, just wanted to point out that Mr. Bush has 40 years of experience. Make sure you know who is giving you advice, some of these folks on this forum have very little experience. Often,...
  17. Re: Minerai oil vapor treatment for mites.

    The others are giving you good advice. There are a few commercially available treatments that use natural compounds, like MAQS. If you don't plan to use a proven mite control method, you should...

    No offense intended to anyone, but make sure you know who is giving you advice on this forum. I lost hives last year due to poor advice from an inexperienced beekeeper. I don't have the experience...

    Re: I HATE Foundationless!

    I also use 2" Ritecell starter strips with fishing line supports in place below the strips. Works great and can be used in an extractor with no problems.

    Re: Trying a 5 frame hive

    The smaller five frame hive bodies will require closer management to prevent swarms. Once your heavy flow starts, more inspections and manipulations will be required. If you don't mind the...
