    Queens , workers, and drones all start out the same. Eggs for three days, larvae for 6 days, and then comes the difference. Queen pupal state is 7 days, workers 12 days and drones 15 days. For a...
  2. Re: Saskatraz queens, How are They Building-up for You this Spring

    I had to replace one yesterday due to attitude. I had worked bees all day and they all were fine. When I came to this hive, as soon as I cracked the lid they were all over me. All in all I don't see...

    Re: Honey Sale

    You will need to check about licenses. Here in Montana you can sell face to face without any hoops. If you sell to someone wholesale and they resell it it's a whole different ballgame.

    Re: 1 Gallon Pail Source

    I got mine from B&B Honey Farm. They are the same price and probably the same plug. I use a 2" hole saw like they said to use. An 1 7/8" would be way to small. Berlin also sells white pails but they...

    Re: 1 Gallon Pail Source

    Re: Lyson 50L Creamer, any reviews?

    You don't let the honey cream in the machine. If you did you wouldn't be able to get it out of the gate. The machine only mixes the seed into the honey and then gets the process started. The actual...

    Thanks Tenbears,

    I just googled Sam Owen beekeeper in Montana and got zero results. I can guarantee he isn't the biggest in the US. I've never heard of him.
