    Sticky: Re: Today in the Apiary

    Yesterday actually. This is my first year with bees. Two packages on Good Friday. One of them I killed the queen when I was centering the frames in the brood box. Bees roared and I didn't know...
  2. How long to freeze frames from a laying worker hive?

    I crushed a queen long enough ago that te hive went laying worker. I shook the bees out and put the brood box in the freezer. How long does it need to stay there before I can put the frames on...

    Re: When to remove the queen cage

    Today was ten days. We had 3.25 inches of rain and it's 46 degrees. The forecast is more of the same, finally warming up on Friday. It stopped raing for about a half hour so I lit the smoker and...

    Re: When to remove the queen cage

    I'm inclined to wait ten days. What happens if the queen isn't released at ten days? I had two packages. One had candy under the cork and one didn't. I put a whole mini marshmallow in it. It...

    When to remove the queen cage

    I installed two packages on Saturday. I've read to check that the queen has been released in three days and I've also read to keep out of the hive for ten days. Which is correct?

    That's a big 10-4 on that. All the videos and reading don't really compare to doing it. The feeling of bees walking on my hand when I brushed them off the queen cage to see that she was ok was...

    This is the title of a cooking book. I call it that rather than a cook book because close to half of it is about how those four things affect the flavors and textures of food. The other half is...

    johno,
    In my head I did not think of denier in the same light as deplorable. I understood people being offended by the deplorable statement when it was first made. I now see that the denier...

    I think at this point only the deniers are calling it Global Warming instead of Climate Change.
