    Re: Very Thick Honey

    Kelly,all of the responses were legit advice, and they took you seriously. This just proves that local knowledge about conditions are more valuable. Keep that in mind because you will get advice from...

    Re: New right away- what to plant?

    Milkweed for starters. Pods will be available soon for seeding. For other late summer and fall flowers, take a walk and see what they are on now and make a note to get those seeds. Aster and...

    Re: Hotboxing with Oxalic Acid

    Some people make a shim with a slot and do it from the top. You still have to be careful that the wand doesn't rest on the top bars. Most slide in a thin sheet of metal on the bottom board such as...

    Re: Bee watering station

    Some have good success with chicken water stations. The bees were attracted to the chemicals in your hot tub, especially if you use chlorine. Try putting a little in the feeder. It will attract them...
  7. Re: Queens Are Reluctant To Lay In Honey Frames?

    Thanks All. So from Kamon's experience, it appears accurate that she does prefer brood comb. Kamon, you run deeps for honey supers. Do you try to keep the brood and honey frames segregated? J
  8. Re: Just saw the first Monarch Butterfly of the Season-can Autumn be far behind?

    @elmer, that's eatin size! Biggest I see around here is the luna moth which is really beautiful. I have seen similar moths around here but its out of the black witch moth range, so unsure what it...
  9. Re: Just saw the first Monarch Butterfly of the Season-can Autumn be far behind?

    Oh, they are on their way back south where you are. Sorry, for some reason location is not displayed when I am on my tablet. I should just shut my mouth if something is location dependant, but...
  10. Queens Are Reluctant To Lay In Honey Frames?

    I recently read somewhere, maybe here, that queens avoid laying in comb that has previously held honey. I have never heard this before, nor have I experienced it, but I use deeps for brood and...

    I read the threads you cited. Very helpful. I will need to talk to my source at the farmers market and make sure they will have enough, post frost.
    Looks like a good cite. Do you make kielbasa...

    Re: Sauerkraut

    Thanks GG. Didn't think of purple cabbage. Good idea. I do use caraway seeds.
    I guess I am jumping the gun Stefan? I will check out that link. More sugars in the fall make sense. Same thing with...

    If you find it, post in recipe forum. More people will see it there. At least the people who mess around in the kitchen. J

    Re: Formic pro this week

    If you have the weather and young queens, I would do 2 strips in hives of your size. But this is just what I do. If you have a queen loss, you have time to get another. Do not treat for 24hrs after...
  15. Re: Just saw the first Monarch Butterfly of the Season-can Autumn be far behind?

    Larry, your recollection is off. Monarchs arrive in the North in Spring and leave in the Fall. Unfortunately, the fact that you are just seeing one is testament to their decline.
    I have seen far...

    Thumbs up on fall honey for making bbq sauce. Got a recipe Steve, or are you just adding honey to store bought sauce? J

    I doubt they help much, but noticed on a heavy flow they get in and out more quickly. How much? Maybe could make a difference.
    Honey production is not a high priority for me. I find a landing...

    Re: This is how community mating yard looks like

    Sounds like a great idea, even to this small time hobbyist. I live in a fairly isolated small town with only 4 other hobbyists that I am aware of. I have floated similar ideas about all using local...

    Re: Mite away question

    I use formic and agree with Kelly that it can be hard on the colony and that is mitigated by applying at temps as low as you can get for the first 3 days, and never exceeding 85f. I shoot for low 80s...
