    No. A new user created a group and posted the link there. I deleted the group and then banned the user. "YunaK"

    Re: Catching and Marking Queens

    I have done both but I think I prefer waiting until after they are mated. Seems like a better way of keeping track of them. Snatching them out of a mating nuc or small 5 framer is not bad. It is...

    Re: Warm spells in NJ

    Alan, I would check stores and brood next warm day opportunity and not wait until mid-Feb. The bees in the Southeast and Eastern Seaboard are doing things early this year.

    Re: Catching and Marking Queens

    My motor skills are no longer what they once were. I use the one-handed queen catcher for queens that are already in a hive. I can mark newly emerged virgins by hand with no problem because they are...

    Re: Keeping bees out of a swimming pool

    Your local homebrew shop can sell you bags of corks and they are really inexpensive. Although, needing corks could be an excuse to become a wine connoisseur. :)

    Welcome to Beesource Christina. There are many different ways to keep bees, even if you do not own any property. One day you may decide to take the plunge and become hopelessly addicted like the rest...

    Re: Almond Prices

    Sorry, Becuna bees. It was too easy. Everyone that posted knew you meant almond pollination prices. Just having a tiny bit of fun on a cold night. No offense meant.
  9. Re: What to do with laying workers in January?

    If she was poorly mated and had been laying worker brood but is now only laying drones, there is no going back. I had several nucs that went that way. All eventually died out.

    Re: Image-blocking

    LJ, not sure if it is related or not, but around 13:00 Z on Sunday, I had to remove a link that was posted to a Beesource group for, well, basically a "Dial a Girlfriend" type service. First one of...

    Re: Almond Prices

    Yep, just at $7 per pound. Checked on Amazon and the range is pretty tight in the 3# bag. As far as terms, I think they offer free delivery.

    Re: 2019 Winter solstice

    My main concern is whether or not I have a sufficiently large enough foraging force to take advantage of the extremely short flow we have here in VA. While hives in other parts of the country are...

    Re: Resources on Nectar Flow Timing?

    You might want to visit your local botanical gardens and talk to the horticulturalist there about which native plants bloom when and if they serve as a nectar source for pollinators. It can be the...

    Re: 2019 Winter solstice

    I make no bones about it, I feed, feed, feed. Syrup stays on the hives all winter unless there is a deep or medium full of capped stores on the hive. Dry pollen sub is always available, the girls...

    Re: Drawing Candles

    Biermann, 160-165 is optimal. The wax shrinks alot as it cools, so you want it to be as cool as possible so the bottoms don't sink. I do votives, tapers, and jar candles. Many commercial apiaries...
  16. Re: The use of 48hr queen cells to spread resistant genetics

    Yeah, the bees are benevolent jailers. They round up the SHB in little propolis corrals to keep them contained, but will feed them all summer long.

    Re: Global Warming

    Robert, thanks for bringing these words to my attention. Even still, you and I may be reading into them and coming away with different interpretations of what they mean. To me, Jeffereson is alluding...

    Re: What causes Honey to cystallize?

    From what I have seen, tulip poplar honey does not readily crystalize. It is my primary nectar source and I have yet to have any solidify. I also keep a jar from each year and the 2017 honey is just...

    Thanks J. Not bad at all for a first attempt. Want to go a bit drier next time around too.

    Nathaniel, I understood what you were doing but misunderstood the why. I thought you were making nucs, not just queens. The method you describe is the same as using a cell builder colony and a...

    Well the bubbling stopped a few days later. I let the mead sit until today. It is a beautiful deep amber colored and quite clear. Did not bother with the hydrometer and just bottled it all up. All...

    So very true. I am glad our system allows us the luxury of being able to nitpick it's minor flaws.

    If there one thing I could change about the politcal system, it would be term limits for...

    Re: Global Warming

    Cranked up, nah. Maybe a bit cynical and cautious. If the SCOTUS was really an impartial interpreter of the law, why do so many of their decisions fall on party lines?
