  6. Re: Contradiction: 12 fluid oz per pound or about 12 lbs per gallon?

    Honey weighs more than water. Water is the standard for determining the capacity of bottles/jars/containers. So a “12oz” bottle should actually read “12 fluid ounces” - the volume for that quantity...

    Welcome to Beesource. You have made several inquiries, some of which should not be answered in generalities. I encourage you to get connected to a local beekeeping club - they will have a better...

    Re: Crystallized honey

    An electric heating pad set on low is about 110F surface temperature; set on medium, it is 135F surface temperature. With honey liquefaction occurring at 95F to 104F, low setting generally works for...

    The need for a tilted (askew) telescoping cover relates to winterizing a hive for northern climates. The UofMinnesota teaches the placement of bildrite over the innercover, and the telescoping cover...

    Re: How do I relax w/bees?
