Is there a list or a website that lists companies or independants who buy bulk wholesale honey?
Very good. Thank you.
Very nice. Will this work with full hives too, or is it suitable for only nucs?
I have no real intent to rent my hives out for pollination, but I learned a long time ago that one should never say never. :D
I was curious, however; on how beek prices out the service.
I was thinking the other day that a first year colony (or two) from a package would be kind of weak going into an overwinter situation.
From what I have read, convention says that you cannot...
Hmm....I was thinking that 'super' was a reference to a superstructure.
Ah, of course. Thank you.
I have found that of all the WordPress themes going that are free to use, Weaver Xtreme seems to be the most customizable.
In any standardized language, words have to have a specific meaning or there cannot be any kind of meaningful communication.
I would support a standardized nomenclature for beekeeping so that we...
Green frame? Are you talking about the green foundation I see in just about every hive tutorial video?
Is there a resource where I can go learn about this OTS method online?
So you would recommend removing the Flow Hive super after the Spring flow or the Autumn flow? I still have to research the nectar flows here in northern Pennsylvania, so I'm trying to get an idea of...

1. Is swarming still an...
Although I've heard that siamese will bitter your brew terribly!!
I am kidding of course. :shhhh::eek::p
I have a batch I made in the first week of September that has been in a clarifying bucket for about two months now. I should find the time to bottle it.
I have a picture of a glass that it took...
Interesting. Properly wired, extending the charge of the battery at night could be accomplished by turning off the entire fence until the motion detector triggers a movement.
I guess the real...
That is the one I have been using to gather notes and as a jumping off point for research on things I don't fully understand. I was very interested in their mini-nucs queen production.
I'm from NEPA, Susquehanna county.
I'm still in the research phase of starting a couple of colonies. I don't want to end up killing a couple of nucs out of ignorance.
