    Good update- sorry to hear about the nuc failure. I was surprised to read that you are still feeding 1:1. When do you typically switch over to 2:1 in your locale?

    You are a little North of me, but guys around here shoot for 60 - 80 pounds of stores going into winter- so I would expect it would be preferable for you to have at least this much...

    Good write-up, DNS. While I am sorry the forced abscond did not turn out as well as you had hoped, it no doubt was a good learning experience and you will be well-prepared for the next opportunity to...

  16. Re: Primitive beekeeping (bee trees, log hives, etc)

    This is an interesting approach, GregV. I imagine you might be able to fetch a premium price for honey harvested from a log hive- it certainly makes for a good story to tell with the product.
