    Re: How Much honey?

    Dan, (!) I guess we are yelling at each other now?



    So we have to wait until people are 25 until we voice our opinion about the tone of one of their posts now.

    Re: How Much honey?

    I'llbeedan,

    Actually, I did not check the kid's profile until most of this already unfolded and even at that, I was just looking to see how many years of experience they had. I actually did not...

    Re: Set It and Forget It?

    Putting words in my mouth now?

    It's pretty low of you to reference and post 1 quote from me that took place in a totally different thread. I mean really low.

    That quote was a response to...

    RT.

    I think you are a bit confused. I took no issue with your original post. I actually think it was quite good. Like I said, I was going to contribute to it, however noticed it would be...

    Re: Set It and Forget It?

    SunKool,

    Is your profile up to date? It says you have been beekeeping for 2 years. Your hives were there for 6 years. Did you take them over or did you set them up?

    You treat before you bring them. Then what? What are your swarm management plans? Once you treat, mites start...

    And yet you posted this garbage. 3 total posts in 4 years and this is one of them. I've learned a lot from many of the "wipes" here and have taken nothing away from your contributions, or lack...

    No not moot. In fact, this logic supports squarepeg's argument. ...
  14. Re: Advice please, too late to reverse boxes?

    >Why dont you put every other frame honey, then starter frame, ect.

    I'd be a little cautious of that. Seems whenever I put undrawn frames between honey frames(especially uncapped), they tend to...

    Yes, I ditched the jacket too. I just use a mosquito net with a draw string(very important). It just got so hot and uncomfortable that I figure the jacket is...

    Re: XXXL nitrile gloves?

    My first year I used the regular beekeeping gloves. Then I switched over to nitrile gloves. A couple years ago, I was working the bees and ripped the nitrile gloves. I was so tired of fighting...
  17. Re: Beek attire - Wish I knew before yesterday...

    I'm bald, like shaved to the bone bald. Believe me, I can relate. I have a 10 pack of those cheesy '70s and '80s style terry cloth headbands. Without them, sweat just streams right down my head and...

    Re: Stop Swarming during flow?

    Yes. By removing the queen and making a nuc with her, the hive already thinks it swarmed. No queen, no swarm. You just broke the swarm "mode". Just keep an eye on your supers. If they start...

    Re: Stop Swarming during flow?

    This is the approach I take. In fact, 5 hives in one...

    Re: Deer, a problem or not?

    I have hives on a property that is loaded with deer. In fact, I can see my hives from 2 tree stands during hunting season. I think deer are going to be a non issue for you.
  21. Re: Cutting Out Queen Cells from Plastic Foundation

    My thoughts weren't to cut the cell off of the foundation, but to actually cut the section of foundation out. Cell, wax and plastic. Say maybe 3 inches long by 2 inches wide. Then take the...
  22. Re: Cutting Out Queen Cells from Plastic Foundation

    I have looked for this same info a while back. I found nothing. I made a post asking if a hot knife would work. It didn't turn up one response. So, I do plan on exploring a hot knife experiment...

  24. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    Yes. I would just try to avoid splitting 2 brood frames with 2 new frames.
  25. Re: It's official - My 2 NUCS arrived Saturday but I was told to wait to transfer ??

    Sounds like you are ready for your first be inspection today. I agree with ruthiesbees. Put the nucs on top of their new 10 frame equiptment. Then you and the bees chill out for a bit. Go over...
