    Re: Missouri

    I just created a webpage where I'm posting honey bee-friendly flowers and their approximate bloom dates. I don't know if anyone will find this useful, but it's something I've wanted to do for a...

    Re: Missouri

    I was wondering why my redbuds were being so lazy.

    Re: Missouri

    I saw yellow rocket and Dutchman's breeches in bloom for the first time yesterday (5 Apr). From what I understand, the yellow rocket is purported to be a decent early spring nectar source for honey...

    Re: Swarm Trapping Presentation

    Good job with the presentation. I really liked the Russian scion.

    Re: Missouri

    My wild plums started blooming today. They were buzzing with bees (including honey bees), with a majority of the activity near the highest bunches of flowers.

    One week ahead of last year.

  6. Re: Help! I think I have a honey bee hive in my shed wall.

    That's awesome. Good work. Glad they're doing okay, and glad you've got your shed back. I don't have suggestions for a chemical defense, but I believe the best thing you can do is make sure there's...

    Thanks, Hoot Owl. Stay healthy down there in the Branson area.
  10. Queen Measuring a Cell and Laying an Egg

    I think this is the first time I've caught a queen laying an egg on video, though I'm sure those with observation hives see it all the time. The short video was made for my facebook page, which is...

    Re: Missouri

    And from what I understand, all the Bradford pears should be cut down and replaced anyway. They're a pretty bad weed tree (crowding out natives in unmanaged areas), they're brittle and drop large...
  12. Re: Help! I think I have a honey bee hive in my shed wall.

    It's a combination of things. First, beekeepers aren't keen on bringing a bunch of poisoned bees and comb back into their bee yards--if that colony doesn't survive, it will get robbed out by their...

    Re: Missouri

    The domestic plum trees I planted a couple years ago started blooming yesterday (27 March). My wild plum trees appear to be a week or two behind them.

  14. Re: Help! I think I have a honey bee hive in my shed wall.

    There are two beekeeping clubs listed on the Georgia Beekeepers' website. Try posting on their facebook pages (links below). Ask them if anyone can come do a cut-out. Make sure you tell them it's in...

    Re: Beekeeping educators stepping up

    Awesome, thanks for posting this. Any beekeeper subscribed to any beekeeping channel on YouTube should subscribe to Tom's new channel. And if you see information in Tom's videos that conflicts with...

    Re: Storing built out frames

    Cool setups. Similar ideas to what I'm doing. I have no issues hanging frames on my racks in the summer, but I could see how hanging them inside boxes could provide enough closed space that moths...

    Re: Storing built out frames

    Jen, for reference I've got the Whirlpool 15 cubic foot chest freezer from Lowe's. I manage to squeeze up to seven medium supers into it at one time. So I use it to freeze supers if I need to let...

    Re: "Camoflage" hive bodies, ideas?

    Those are "spring beauties" and they normally start blooming in March here in Missouri. I never see honey bees on them, but they (along with cut-leaf toothworts) sure make our forests pretty this...

    Re: "Camoflage" hive bodies, ideas?

    I wanted to do the same thing at my old place. My hives were scattered around a forest then, so I took a dead leaf off the ground and had it color-matched at Home Depot. Then I painted my hives to...

    Re: Found 6 N95 Masks I was using for OAV

    I never used N95 masks for OAV treatments, to ifixoldhouses' point. But I also had a box of them in my garage that I used for building boxes and other workworking so I didn't inhale a bunch of...

    Re: Roaches in Swarm Trap

    Tim, I don't know of a safe way to avoid roaches chemically without also posing a risk to bees. So my tactic is to wait until bees are clearly swarmy before I put out my traps. At least that...
