    Many russian/ukrainian beekeepers use a sheet of plastic as an inner cover, some use a piece of cotton canvas which the bees can propalize to allow the level of air exchange they want. University of...

    Re: Chinses Swarm commander

    Infuse your discarded/replaced queens in alchohol this together with lemongrass oil, old combs, and used bee'y smelling gear is probably plenty.

    Re: Strategy for Havesting Some Goldenrod Honey?

    Stinky? I love that smell of curing goldenrod, drifts down the hill and into my windows at night. It's like being in a butterscoth factory.

    Re: Shaker box girls say nope
