GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Do bees rotate stock?
« Last post by GSF on August 02, 2015, 07:03:31 PM »
When folks, or grocery stores, get more product in, the new is placed in the back of the shelf so the old will be used first. I was curious if bees do something similar. What made me think of this is every year I wonder if I'm eating sugar water honey or nectar honey.

My guess is that as the bees eat their stores during a flow, the empty cells are filled with nectar behind them. Or something to that sort.

HONEYBEE REMOVAL / Re: Advice on dead tree cutout.
« Last post by ldeano on August 02, 2015, 06:43:20 PM »
Well the cut out went good!  Got the queen in a clip and got a full box of brood rubber banded in the hive. The hive was massive I had to but another box on top for all the bees. Ended up with a 5gallon bucket of honey and 1 1/2 buckets of wax. Gonna go back tonight to see if all the bees move into the hive so I can pick it up, may have to leave it one more day to try to get all the bees. Thanks again for all of y'all's help.

Ideano,
 be sure that the stump does not kick back when it releases, it may be disastrous. I would be tempted to free fall it in the direction you want .

I have a hunting club that plants 57 acares of clover for deer and turkeys. That found out that I had bees and asked if I would put bees out so that they could cut their costs of reseeding. We wrote up a contract that I would maintain the hives and that they would protect my hives by not shooting towards my hives . works out great becuase during cold weather and deer and turkey season they can place a group level blind in the same area as my hives and the game walks right up to them and they get clean quick kills. I have 35 hives there so far and roomfor150 more. I have another private preserve that is wanting hives to .

I have six small convenience stores and gas stations that sell about three cases a month each. Then I sell about ten cases a reason to deputies. I have a coffeeand teasupplier that sells my honey to coffee and teahouse in the middle Ga. Area . thats another thirty cases. I still have enough honey to supply my neighbors,family and landowners. I keep five gals. For me each season. I always seem lucky to make it thru the year. Knock on wood! The income covers the wife's medical needs and a little extra.

I submitted a question for the Thursday night debate to fox who is doing it. Let's see if they have the balls to use it and let's see if the candidates have the balls too to answer it.

To quote one of the blog comments:

"Geeee, a member of the armed forces............carrying a gun? Oh' my God!"

I would be willing to bet that if you asked Lt Cmdr White if he would do the same thing again knowing he would be charged, he would say that he would.  He did the right thing.  But then we often punish people for dong the right thing.  I don't know why...

But sadly Kathy, I think the O administration would take some kind of executive action if the base commanders would take it upon themselves to defend their premises. Look at how they screwed up things on the actual battlefield.
 Pay no mind that our bases are under attack and will likely get worse before it gets better.

Thank you all!

The county north of me (Chilton) has a lot of produce stands, peach park, feed stores and the such. These folks usually buy bulk but two of the  major suppliers went out last winter. Honey is a lot of work. I'd rather sell bees.
