    Re: White area on back - is this normal?

    Yes, and "Touch me not" is also blooming. I will get a sample of that to compare also.

    Re: Where is the honey

    Plannerwgp - I am not that far from you, about 90 miles, so our weather was similar. Your inspection report was rather cursive.

  6. Re: Will bees remove pollen from frames in honey super?

    The conditions in a cave seem to turn the pollen to dust.

    Setting back your supers by one bee space provides an upper entrance without the need for another piece of hardware.

  7. Re: A cove cutting jig for making bee box handles

    In the 1940's, Delta sold a radius cutter that would eliminate a few operations. I will try to find the part number. I am sure it is no longer available, but a used one might be searchable.

    I never trust media interpretations of peer review articles. That MAY be the article. I would advise reading the actual paper. Often the imporatant to us facts are not in the conclusion.

  10. Re: Will bees remove pollen from frames in honey super?

    Due to the possibility of pollen being contaminated with pesticides and causing problems later that are hard to pinpoint the cause, we do not try to use stored pollen.

    Re: How early can I pull the supers?

    Good deal. Generally, SHB do not survive well in our winters, but can hitchhike a ride in hives and packages from the South.

    All is well that ends well.

    Sell on taste, not price. It will be our job to inform and educate the consumer on the difference between the two products. It is our fault that things have gotten this far out of line.

    Don't underestimate the long term effects of Roundup on the bees gut flora, and the resulting sub lethal effects. It may not immediately kill a bee, but it does effect the hive as a whole. I...

    Re: Comb Honey Foundation

    I believe the reason for "thin surplus" foundation is to improve the mouth feel of comb honey. It reduces the the percentage of wax you are eating.

    The choice is yours.

    My-smokepole - I am not so sure. They may be much more aggressive on their future plans. We went there to purchase foundation, and had to mix and match to get 2000 sheets.
