    I don’t intend on hijacking this thread, but I started digging on the internet about Honeydew honey and it is very interesting. Learned something new. Many thanks!

    So two of my kiddos and I decided to try and mark feral bees and time their flights to see how far their hives are located from our house. It was a fun activity and the kids really enjoyed it. Also...

    Deleted. Sorry, I totally misread your original post. I read double deeps. Not queens.

    I will comment that a mentor of mine kept several double queen hives and according to him the bees went...

    I typically have 6 to 8 honey hives and don’t get overwhelmed. Come springtime (split time) that number usually doubles, but I can usually get rid of those in a couple months via Craigslist!

    Hi Jim - I’m just north of you in Nacogdoches. I’ve currently got mine supered up to catch some goldenrod nectar. You should have goldenrod down there as well. It will usually stop about the first...

    I left my hive sealed up - UGH!

    OK guys, I’m so ticked off at myself. I made a HUGE mistake and I deserve any verbal abuse that I get. I went to a hive on my hunting lease last night to apply the last round of oxalic acid...

    I have used them in the past. They should work on soft ground and help distribute the weight. I’m not sure if they would help with beetles.

    I had a similar experience this past Spring. New queen laid great for about a month, and then I started noticing multi egg cells. Several days went by and they killed her. The laying worker...

    You will likely notice a decrease in brood production. This is normal. You’ll want to have the appropriate amount of honey stores going into winter. We usually have some goldenrod nectar flow going...

    I guess my color perspective is limited. I have always considered it lighter because it about as light as I get around here. It’s about the same color as the early spring honey I harvest in April....

    I like to think that the lighter colored (clover, privet, holly, Chinese Tallow etc. around here) honey sells faster than the darker honey from my honor stand, but every fall I'm proven wrong. The...

    I haven’t sold any that way. I’m not really sure how it would taste if you mixed it up. My guess is not as good as the tallow honey by itself, just my opinion. That tallow honey is hard to beat. ...
