I was wondering what type of pine tree produces the best Needles for smoker fuel. I had a family friend who had a pine tree that produced great beetles for a smoker but she died and the property was sold so I want to plant a good pine tree on my property for smoker fuel.

I just wanted to post a link to an article on small hive beetles that I wrote in repley to a woman that recently emailed me on one of my blog posts. It might be valuable for those that might be interested in new methods or combination methods of controlling them. I lost several hives in 2010...
So my bees kicked the bucket. Looks like they just froze to death, maybe due to moisture. But I have a couple frames still full of honey. Its gonna be another 2 months before my packages arrive. What should I do with these frames? I'd like to put them in the new hives if that's ok. But I'm also...

I just completed a two day course in the basics of...

A friend of mine is interested in taking up beekeeping and he asked if he could put a few hives on my roof (which is wide and flat). He said the roof is a good place for bees.
I told him that I didn't want bees all over my yard and he assured me that there would be no increased bee...
