I bought 12 of the 8oz ones and was going to dip in wax but never got around to doing it. The honey is now almost a year old and only a small amount of crystallization on the bottom.
This is what I have got just would like to put in on a label. I ordered 9 off a site last night so we will see how they look.
Thanks for the feed back. I thought about get the avery labels and printing my own. Glad you told me they run when wet. I have looked at man lake but not sure yet.
this is a great idea and I will be using this. thank so much.
How old is too old? Should I get rid of the comb older than 2 years or longer?
Did you see any pollen stored any where?
This is interesting
What kind of ants do you see? I had a hive that was full of big black ants, I just would smash all I could on ever inspection. Why did you use sugar roll instead of doing a alcohol wash?
Why didn't you have them descented?
Thank you mcon672, trapper are very needed especially in places were people can't or won't take care of a problem properly. Like catching skunks to relocate them, that's just crazy. If foot hold...
That's the conclusion I have come up with. The queen is a Oliver Italian queen and I didn't think that the hives I made the splits from were that bad off with mites. I made the splits from a hive...
I have bought a fair amount of equipment from them and have had no problems at all, but if I had bought bees from them and the queens were no good they should do everything they can to make it right,...
I went back out before dark and went through it again. I looked at the cap brood and poked it with a tooth pick and I found mites in capped worker brood. I also found a few dead ready to emerge bees...
I have 3 nucs close to gather 2 are doing great but one had a diffent smell and very little cap brood with the heads eat off most that were uncapped. There was eggs but no lava. Could it be mites?...
Where do you buy your nucs from pgayle?
I posted some
Thanks for the reply, I just hated to have wasted 30 bucks for them to just do there own thing anyway. There are two fat queen cells in there now so maybe it will all work out.
Had a nuc kill a marked queen then build there own queen cells. What could I have done to prevent this? The other two nucs excepted the marked queens in them. Could there had been queen cells in the...
I have had no problem with the new inserts. The only problem I had with the older models was the wire would pop out and let bees get trapped when all the syrup was gone.
I plan on trying to make the drive down there for some of the in store sales.
Thanks Aaron and Michael that's what I was needing to know. I didn't know if something had gone wrong.
No it's old comb that had honey in it and the bees ate all the honey and went to the next frame.
I found some of the comb in a hive I inspected the other day that was really dry and brittle not like the wax comb that was in there last year. Does all comb do this?
