    Re: Ok to put beehive near pinetrees

    Because of small hive beetles, full sun is recommended. In the South it sure gets hot in the afternoon. Maybe put the hives on the East side of the trees so they would get sun all morning but shade...

    Re: Strap trap to tree

    No need for nails or screws. A rope or wire over a limb will keep it from slipping vertically. A ratchet strap to hold it snug to the tree and keep it from swinging in the breeze. The cheap one...

    Re: Best commercially available swarm trap?

    You can buy the fiber pots and mount them on a piece of plywood. Bees seem to like the wood fiber more than plywood.

    Re: Plan B - backup swarm control measures

    Re: Solar extractor?

    Heating honey to 144 degrees probably kills all the enzymes, antibodies, etc. It can't help the taste either. You may as well be eating flavored corn syrup.
