  1. Re: How to keep honeybees alive and thriving.

    I guess you were right and so was Laurel but I just hope the videos help overall and I hope I can find the time to do a good job on them this year.
  2. Re: How to keep honeybees alive and thriving.

    Well, I expect over time to switch to mediums. Another 40 years of deeps will have me in bad shape. Besides, Laurel says we are going to switch so that is that! Maybe I can talk her into letting me...
  3. Re: How to keep honeybees alive and thriving.

    Thanks Psm 1212. We love the beekeeping community that has helped shape us and if we can give back a little that is the least we can do.
  4. How to keep honeybees alive and thriving.

    Laurel and I keep 300+ colonies. We both kept bees before we were married and struggled in the early years with consistency and having large amounts of healthy hives year after year. Here are a...

    Re: Like sending bees to war

    Sounds like the dude in the article needs to up his bee game. The elite commercials aren't needing handouts they are the ones selling bees to guys like this after they pollinated the almonds. It is a...

    Poll: Re: Feeding pollen sub in the Winter

    Think this proves that PHDs put on their pants one leg at a time like the rest of us. Maybe in his area in Florida they aren't helpful but to a young colony here they make a world of difference. I...
  12. Re: Why do Beeks stack supers so high?

    Because my production colonies are ripped at the right time of the year and produce multiple deeps of honey on a good year. They also have to produce enough to go thru our summer dearth period....

    Poll: Re: Feeding pollen sub in the Winter

    Yes and no. We feed patties in winter but definitely not thru. I like timing my patties to be right before the maple pollen hit. We have cleansing flights every month of the year so things are easier...

    Re: New Smoker

    Haha I was drinking something when I ran across Michael Palmers domed smoker bit. I nearly sprayed Laurel with water when I saw it!
  16. Re: Melt in your mouth Honey caramel!

    Ah yes Tulip is a stronger flavored honey that would be pretty aggressive on the tongue when condensed. However, I think it is the best honey for BBQ Ribs! The caramels can be cooked a little hotter...
  17. Re: SARE FNE16-840 Conrad/Seeley TF study

    Prior to Varroa, tracheal, and SHB the USDA was reporting wild swarms to perish at a 60-75% rate in the first year. I think it should be of no surprise that with the pests and new viruses that we now...

    Bweavers are way too hot. Maybe some are not but I have talked to dozens over the years who have reported being chased to the creek due to those bees. I was given a hive by a local guy who said they...

    Re: BioVar varroa mite treatment

    I am ALL for donating on a problem that work great or even halfway decent on Varroa. However, all that video did was leave me with more questions than answers.

    We still don't even know if their...
  24. Re: Melt in your mouth Honey caramel!

    I prefer salted butter but we have made them with unsalted and it turned out very good also. Thankfully either one works.

    Kalona butter looks amazing! We use to have some neighbors we could get...
  25. Re: Melt in your mouth Honey caramel!

    Ah sorry Alex. I was working on a project and for some reason confused the butter with the cream! Yes, I would warm the butter up. I am sure at that stage of the process room temp butter or warmer...
