Ted Wilcox replied to Amy Owen's discussion Allergic to bee stings??
"Amy,

I am not an allergist or anything, but I was allergic to bee stings after getting 20 or so stings one time.  Benedryl was a great help.  I went into full anaphylactic shock a few times.  The symptoms are similar to what you are describing but…"

Ted Wilcox replied to Joel Deluxe's discussion Should we encourage bee feeding by others?
"I don't think it is a good idea since it can stimulate robbing.  I don't really want my bees robbing each other.  My preference would be to do as Christopher suggests below is plant and maintain plants that provide food for bees."

Ted Wilcox replied to Kim's discussion Top Bar Hives with Healthy Colonies For Sale
"It is Dr Schuyler.  He is great.  He doesn't give the shots, a nurse does.  I am the only patient they are currently treating for bees, so the people in the clinic don't know that much about it.  Every once in a while I see the doctor at the clinic…"

Ted Wilcox replied to Kim's discussion Top Bar Hives with Healthy Colonies For Sale
"Kim, there are several other beekeepers in this organization who have had the treatments.  I started mine about 3 years ago.  My allergist gave me a test of about 100 different allergens and about 5 different stinging insects.  Bees were the only po…"

Ted Wilcox replied to Kim's discussion Top Bar Hives with Healthy Colonies For Sale
"Kim,
I have enough hives, but I wanted to say that I developed the same allergy a few years back.  I have been getting allergy treatments since then, and I am up to the equivalent of two bee stings per month.  I am a lot more confident around the be…"

Does anyone have a good home remedy for repelling bees from house walls?  I have read about Orange Oil, Tea Oil, Vinegar and other things.  Has anyone tried any of these?  How do they work? Ted

Ted Wilcox replied to Christina Parlapiano's discussion Swarm Question
"Multiple swarms are not uncommon as Raymond said.  They are to be avoided in your own hives, though, if possible.  They can leave the original hive without enough resourses to survive.  At times the afterswarms are so small, they would not be very v…"

Ted Wilcox replied to tom nims's discussion bee or wasp
"There is a local wasp that looks and acts a little bee-like.  I believe it is called a Pollen Wasp.  It is a nectar and pollen gatherer.  It looks very similar to a bee, but has bright colors and no hair.  I asked about this a year or so back.  Thes…"

Ted Wilcox replied to Frank R Smith's discussion Africanize bees in New Mexico
"I have been told that Africanized bees do not survive the winter here.  Apparently some still get up this far north occasionally because they swarm so vigorously.  Some of the native bees here are quite aggressive, but I don't know that they are Afr…"
