    Re: Honey Extraction Services?? How many use it?

    I don't know, I don't give the cow credit for a tasty steak or burger, I credit the rancher that raised them.

    Re: Honey Extraction Services?? How many use it?

    Re: First Winter, advice

    I don't know what the temperatures or wind are like in Ohio in the winter but I can tell you how I've overwintered in the past in Wyoming, beekeeping is local.

    Rather than using a greenhouse I...

    Re: 2019 prep underway!

    How's the weather been in NY? We just got several inches of snow over the last few days and it's looking like it will be in the sixties for the rest of the week. I'm going to try to hold off on...
  5. Re: Would starting a small buisness be the way to go

    Well, I don't know I'm not an accountant but according to the firm we're using right now we could claim a loss into perpetuity if we wanted as I understand it. You don't necessarily have to be...
  6. Re: Would starting a small buisness be the way to go

    This is why I say talk to an accountant, I was under this impression as well but according to my accountant that's not true.

    I'm always up for trying something new. I'll give it a try and let you know how it works. You say you can wrap it back up and reuse it, how many uses do you think you would get out of it before it...

    Re: Covering hive for winter

    It couldn't hurt. I've always used tyvech house wrap and black felt paper on my hives. The wind in Wyoming is atrocious so I use the tyvech to cut down on the amount of wind blowing through the...
  10. Re: Would starting a small buisness be the way to go

    Go talk to an accountant. I started as a hobbyist with 5 colonies in 2011 and since 2012 bounced between 10 and 40 colonies as a side liner. The wife handles everything on the business side of life...

    Re: Cleaning old hives and frames

    I have to agree whole heartedly on this. I've scraped a few frames after cleaning up dead outs, went through and scorched all the poop stains off after sanding down and came to the same conclusion. ...

    Re: 4 deeps too much?

    I had a forgotten colony in an apiary from two years ago that I left in four 10 frame deeps. It overwintered (twice!) by itself and was a boomer this year when I found it. This spring when I...

    Re: What to except.

    I did an insemination class from Joe Latshaw several years ago. If I remember the information from the class there isn't a difference in productivity as such that the i.i. are inferior in their egg...
  15. Re: Age Old Question, What to Do with All this Honey!

    I've been a hobbyist/sideliner for six years. I think my best year was just shy of 2,000#, finished extracting by mid October, sold out by end of February. I have never had problems getting rid of...

    I've got to agree with JWPalmer, that all looks like drone comb to me. Maybe your queen is failing. Is there any worker brood?

    You can smoke them off, that'll move some of them; you can shake them off, that'll move most of them; or my favorite, you can take a bee brush to them and quickly flick all of the bees off then be...
