Cross cut shredder paper and long snout bbq lighter.
So, I put a nuc box, a couple frames of drawn comb and a swarm lure out at the office (not the same site as my bees), just as a long shot.
Today, I saw a couple of bees playing around... and...
My granddaughter ["she would never do that, she is terrified of bugs"] accompanied me to pick up a pack last month and told me she thought it would be a good idea if I brought some bees to her school...
Full sun. You can always prop lids, make a vent hole, make or buy a ventilated shallow for the top super, use a screened top cover with any of the above. I may go with the little solar fans this...

From around Huntsville, Alabama, I can affirm what you have already heard. We have had everything from 83 to 30 in just the last week and a very wet and overcast Spring overall. My "first of April"...

Dilute 2 tsp per quart for feeding supplement.

I used it in the sprayer for an install...
Long sleeve shirt, veil, and smoke.

:shock::lol::mad:Following is an email snip from our local supplier (PMTC). I don't know whether to laugh or be upset at folks irresponsibility and ignorance. Cheer up, newbees; for all our...

Sounds like a good standard text with photos might be of help. I remember thinking I had completely digested Beekeeping for Dummies the first year, but it sits at the bedside and gets more...

I have not had good experience with prophylactic chemical treatments for my bees, but I am interested in supplements. PMTC has this product (third item down):...
It may depend on temperament. My big, deaf, pit works the hives with me. He and the bees seem to have worked it out and seem happy to see each other. He walks right up to the entrance, the ladies...
I think the situation is fraught with potential for misunderstanding.

I would get at least one nuc. Figure a nuc + drawn comb should still get you some harvest... that's my emerging-from-disaster plan, anyway.
Pigeon Mt says they are still taking orders, but you...
First of all, I am so sorry. Been there.
Wiser heads will have answers. I only have questions.
Q: Did the "body count" represent what you thought was in the overwintered colonies? Or does it...

I give up, Perry. What exactly are these?

Pigeon Mountain has a new stainless 2 frame [PM 9304] for $140 that I have my eye on.
I bought ancient wooden ware from an crusty old guy last year that I am convinced had moths that helped tip my hives into decline... yes, as I've stated elsewhere, I know now there were several other...

For those of us having to contemplate the contributing, multiple factors to dead and vacated hives...
I saw my first mosquito of the season and idly thought, "Well I guess the city will be around...
This will be the third year. The learning curve has been steep.
I lost both hives and a budding swarm late last summer in a combination of bizarre heat, aggressive pests, neighboring herbicides,...
We were told in a parking lot conversation no to mention it... along with advice to say our dog is a boxer mix rather than a pit mix.
Hell, I ain't even going to mention the insurance company's...
I like both ideas: Omie's Attic (finally, a recycling use for old shallow supers...). You know, Omie, if it works, it will always be "Omie's Attic."
& tefer2's screened inner cover. Some fast...
I'm pretty sure I got harsh words from Iddee and others on Roundup last year. I went to a Clorox solution for weed control. I figure my girls get enough of it in the neighborhood without me putting...
More from my visits with the Maryland keeps.
So, if you thought that the solar powered fans were strange, try this:
Don't worry, guys, my new bees...
I saw :shock: one of these in Maryland last summer:
The master keep I was visiting was involved in...
