    Re: Honey ok to eat?

    Cappings of honey cells come in two varieties: wet and dry. You have wet type.
    Nothing wrong with the honey.

    Re: Not a good day (Im suddenly allergic)

    Sorry to hear about your dilemma. I wonder if you might have gotten an injection of venom straight into the blood stream where the veins are so shallow on the wrist, as opposed to the usual sting in...

    Hi Max, search "phages", but watch spell check doesn't change it. You should come up with four results.

    Re: Extra wide comb on deep frames

    I'm not clear what your intentions are concerning rearrangement, if you aren't going to trim the comb back or go to 9 or 8 frames. To get the wide frames out without damage, you will have to take out...

    Re: Switching Deeps for mediums

    At what stage are the frames in the mediums; foundation, pulled out?
    This late in the season, it will be hard to get them to fill the deep enough to force the brood nest down. I would suggest making...

    Re: Bee info

    Without a picture it would be hard to make an id, but it sounds like a bumblebee. Bees can get defensive in protecting their home, but are not aggressive when gathering food. You could probably touch...

    Re: Honey from Cappings

    Heating cappings to temps high enough to melt the wax produces a compound in the honey, hydroxymetlylfurfural (HMF), that is toxic to bees, but not to humans in small quantities. Use it for baking or...

    Re: Newbeee her and need help

    I would say, too many bees on frames to get a good view. Lots of bees is good. What's in empty cells?

    Re: Honeybound! how do i manage?

    I wouldn't think there would be enough to matter much either way. Cleaned, you free up freezer space.
    Put a shim (2-3" box) above inner cover with super to be cleaned above that; bees should move it...

    Re: Honeybound! how do i manage?

    I think what Mr. Beeman was saying is that putting wet frames out in the open will trigger robbing. Best to put wet frames back in hive.

    Re: Building deep supers

    Wilmal,
    Do you have the frames already? You probably should use frames from only one supplier, as the height of frames may vary from one manufacturer to another.
    The frame should fit in the box...
  17. Re: Upside down, can't turn over, fly in small circles on ground, death ??

    Unfortunately in this case, bees will keep returning to a nectar source.
    You could try feeding, but they do prefer the field, so may ignore. It could keep the hive alive till whatever they are...
  18. Re: Upside down, can't turn over, fly in small circles on ground, death ??

    Last year one of my hives, hundreds of bees on the ground doing as you describe, for three days. Lost the hive. Most probably insecticide.

    When people hear the word "bee", most think of honey bees, but there are hundreds of native species of bee that are in peril. Honey bee colonies live thru the winter (mostly) and can support a...

    Re: Hive stand idea, what do you think?

    How high off the ground would the platform be? If very high, vertical posts would need diagonal bracing of some sort to prevent collapse.

    Ray, you could try slipping the patty into a ziplock with a hole cut in the center for bee access. Helps to have edges of bag lower than hole, then moisture accumulates in bag and keeps party moist....

    Re: Inept beekeeper - bees sat outside the hive.

    Depending on the nectar flow, you may need to feed 1:1 syrup to help them with comb building.
