  1. Re: Carl Killion's Honey in the Comb

    I consider Carl Killion's book together with Taylor's The Comb Honey Book, the two must have books for those interested in or wanting to produce comb honey.
  2. Re: Should I buy an established hive in Oct in Upstate NY

    This sounds like a great bargain, BUT the key is mite control. If the hive has not been properly treated for mites, and the bees die in the winter, you will have gone from a great bargain to a so-so...
  3. Harmful to feed bees melter honey?l

    I use a Maxant Wax Melter to refine my beeswax. Of course, this produces a fair amount of 'melter honey'. I've always thrown it out as I have plenty of excellent extracted honey for my needs and to...

    Re: Ross rounds leaking

    I have produced, packaged, and sold thousands of Ross Rounds and have never had a problem with leaking. A couple of thoughts occur to me:
    1. Producers of cut comb, which will leak profusely from...

    Re: Hello From the Adirondacks

    Welcome. I am near Albany, NY. Not far from you and sometimes similar temperatures. Don't give up, there are lots of beekeepers in the adirondacks.
  7. Re: Dancing Bee Pollen Trap-Any thoughts

    Why would anyone want a trap other than a Sundancer...sold by all dealers, and made in the US.
  8. Re: First year everything - Can I single?

    I encourage you to start by having a brood nest of no more than one deep plus one medium. Start your package in the deep alone and feed, feed, feed to draw out the frames. When seven frames are...
  9. Re: Northeast US Beekeepers: Nuc or Packages?

    If you can get mid-April nucs from Steve Repasky I'd advise you to jump at the opportunity!
  10. Re: Northeast US Beekeepers: Nuc or Packages?

    I have never personally bought nucs from Craiglist, but I know others who have. Without exception, the sellers have been misleading or worse. We have locals selling April nucs that come from the...
  11. Re: Northeast US Beekeepers: Nuc or Packages?

    If I were faced with those choices I'd go for the early April packages. Hopefully the first week of April. But...are you prepared to have at least one deep filled with frames and foundation before...
  12. Re: Kelley Cat# 16N Thin Top Bar Shallow Frames for Cut Comb

    My understanding is that Kelley will make them for a minimum order of 200. I'm sure there are lots of folks here that would buy the 'extra' 100 from you! They last about 'forever'. I've some that...

    Re: Granulated comb honey

    If you have fewer than 10, I'd use the double boiler. Otherwise, the 5 gallon pail. Either way, not a very pleasant job!

    Re: Lemon Creamed Honey.

    I realized I forgot to address the ratio of dried fruit to honey. As a general rule, we use one pound of freeze-dried fruit to every 5 gallons (60 pounds) of honey. After it sets up we taste and...

    Re: Lemon Creamed Honey.

    I used freeze dried lemon to make lemon creamed honey. Yumee.
  17. Re: Sundance II Pollen Trap Question

    I tried it just once and it was not a good idea. There is always some bee death and survivors use the occasional warm day to dispose of the bodies. The once I tried to leave the trap on the dead...

    Re: Pecan flavored creamed honey

    I think you are correct, but am not sure. We are in New York state and order the pecans from Georgia. We do not specify 'fresh' or 'dried' and use what they ship us. We do keep them refrigerated...

    Re: Pecan flavored creamed honey

    Yes, of course, you always have to add a starter to be certain to get the very fine crystals that make the creamed honey so attractive and tasty. That said, I think the starter can vary from 5%-15%...

    Re: Banking Queens

    Thanks for the suggestion, Lauri, but those who can provide good queens early in April are few and far between. California and Hawaii breeders are now being 'sold out' the prior August! The only...

    I am thinking of laying the queen cages so that the screens are on the sides. Wish I would get more input on this.

    Banking Queens

    Last year I ordered 100 queens and they will be arriving on April 4 or April 5. Based on weather today and forecast for the next two weeks, it is unlikely I will be able to use them very fast.
