4 Replies

My research has shown different figures.  Perhaps the need for a TAX I.D. depends on the state that you live in?  I found that if the beekeeper is going to make more than $2,000 per year, then we…Continue

There’s a group of us in Ramah who are wanting to order bees.  Does anyone sell Nucs?  How about package bees?  Do you know anyone who may have bees for sale this late in the game?  We live at 7,000…Continue

"Chris, I like it!  Good job!  I like this idea because it prevents yellow jackets and other robber bees from entering easily into the hive.  Keep up the good work.  Let us know how it works and what revisions you decide to…"

" Yup, that's what I want.  Does Jefferson build those himself?  I like the frames you have pictured, they are designed to accommodate for proper frame spacing.  There wouldn't be a need for a castellation if the…"

"Jefferson, I want to know what your frames look like.  Are you using a top bar only, or do you have sides on yours?  I'm considering building a four sided frame so that pulling a frame from a Warre and transferring it to another…"

"Hi, Lynne.  Welcome to the Warre group.  I would be more than happy to share my knowledge and experience with the Warre.  The only problem is that we are so far away.  If you ever want to make a gorgeous drive to Ramah, we would…"

"Yes, I went to Colorado and picked up a few more hives.  From here on out, I will be bringing in packages of bees and nucs for sale.  As of right now, we don't have much blooming in the mountains.  The hives that we have in…"

"Hanaa, there are several ways to answer this.  To be honest, I use foundation in the brood box and foundationless in the honey super.  You can checkerboard foundation and foundationless frames.  I have had success doing that as…"
