  1. Re: What Pollen Are They Gathering Now In NE?

    We have had some frosts (down to the low 20's) but it seems some plants have survived and now that it's up in the low 60's, 4-5 days ago I was out observing the bees on flowers. Dark Orange pollen...
  2. Re: Orange pollen in Early october, Northeast US?

    My neighbor has some giant sunflowers that have somehow survived the frosts at night. Was out watching the girls collecting pollen, it was a dark orange on their legs. The variety I had in my yard...

    Re: BeeCheck Opinion

    I read the 'About' couldn't see anywhere why they only were in certain states before I asked.

    Re: BeeCheck Opinion

    Dumb question, but why is it limited to certain states?

    Re: Mann Lake's mill run hiveware

    Unfortunately I wish I had bought a few more pallets the last sale. The boxes I got on the mill run were actually quite good with a lot of 'perfect/clear' ones. Trick I found was making sure that I...

    Re: Mann Lake's mill run hiveware

    Nah, that can't be right as the mill run sale usually happened before the black Friday one. I guess they aren't doing it this year, so winter project for the Amish guys it is.

    Re: Sugar $0.39 / lb at walmart.com

    Up here the online price is cheaper than what they have on the shelf. Have to order it online and then pick it up to get the price. Seems weird, but haven't seen anything 'local' enough to get that...

    Re: Mann Lake's mill run hiveware

    Just curious if I missed the sale this year, or they just didn't have it?

    Re: #8 Duck Cloth Inner Cover

    I really wouldn't have drilled a hole in the box, it's unnecessary. There are usually enough holes in the boxes after a few years to try to keep em sealed up.

    Re: Bee-shed idea ...

    Size of frame is irrelevant. DESIGN of frame is different. AZ frames don't have tabs to hold them up and rest on rails with a radius cut on the top and bottom bars to disuade the bees from...

    Re: Bee-shed idea ...

    Not an AZ style, it uses standard Lang frames. There are a lot of people using that system but most of the videos you see will be in Russian and it's advantages are that you don't have to pull off...

    Re: Regarding honey stores for winter...

    If winter is longer/colder than you expect or spring is cold and long, think how sad you will be in the spring to find the colony dead with absolutely NO food left in the hive. Better to have more...
  13. Re: need a hand from those who have a maxant bottling tank

    Maxant has been more than helpful with me. They might not always have accurate records on the really old stuff though (yes, I keep an eye out for bargains).

    Re: Bees seen collecting wax

    Look at the landing board, I bet that wax ends up going outside just like capping wax does when they cut it open. (well first to the floor, then cleaned out)

    Re: Wax dipping

    I haven't dipped any yet, but have been looking at it. That being said, I believe the wax would prevent the glue from adhering to the wood in the joints as it wants to be absorbed into the fibers. ...

    Re: 1:1 vs 2:1 Syrup

    Yup, Make it as sugar heavy as possible and it won't go bad as fast on ya. If the bees want more water, they will find it.

    Re: ProVap 110 and palletized Hives

    If you go to Youtube and look, "A Canadian Beekeeper’s Blog" he has a video of them using the provap to do the hives through the front entrance without any holes being drilled.

    Re: Blurr comb on a frame

    Take that comb, melt it down and paint another frame with it so it's not wasted. It may not be much, but when you are starting out and have no drawn comb, every bit is valuable.

    Re: Which way to go for jacket sizing?

    I totally disagree with Nancy,

    Get the ventilated suit for the hot days, but then again I am a rather hefty person and sweat easily. When I wear a solid one, it quickly gets soaked. I have a...
