those zone 6 numbers sure look low compared to what i've seen and what i'm getting.  i'm seeing wildflower quarts going for 17.99 retail.  i'm charging the same for a very light amber and i use bottle in mason jars.  according to the report i'm over market but according to my eyes i'm in line but offering slightly nicer packaging.

I have been told that an electric shock works to denature the bee venom has anyone tried that
I don't know about the venom but it might denature you.  grin
Especially since the sting leaves an opening in your skin. Your skin it your only protection from shock. If you prick your 2 pointer fingers and touch them to the 2 terminals of a AAA battery it can kill you very easily. It will at minimum heart your heart.

A good nuc will always be better than any package.

A bad nuc or bad package is a disaster.

Going through a nuc before excepting it is mandatory. If you don't know what to look for, take someone along who does.

I don't recommend nucs for a new beekeeper unless they bring someone with them that know what they are doing to inspect them.  Nucs can come with very big problems.  Packages don't seem to be as bad.

Not quite sure that I agree with this staement. could be that 20 beeks and 20 answers to a question kinda thang. Nucs are an established hive with a laying Queen/honey stores/brood. Not much trouble there really. A package is a conglomeration of bees from many hives with zero affiliation to the caged queen thats shipped with that package. Many times these packages die out or leave. Back to your question tho.
Smoker-$40..hive tooL-$8....viel with hat-$28
gloves were a pair of goatskin that I already had and my wife sewed the material on for an elbow length. If cant be done then they run about $14.
Eveything else can be southern engineered. I use a t-shirt and wht dress shirt/jeans/boots. not really a need for a full bee suit.
Like you I make my own hives with frames so the cost of the wood + Titebond III glue and staples/screws. dont skimp on the glue....get the best.

Fox, I think Better Bee had a more appropriate name for those folks in #5 than "extremists". lau

Living across the Lake from Canada, Iím pretty sure they didnít make up your list. laugh


    You told us you wanted the constitution eliminated. You told us the constitution needed to be thrown in the trash heap. You told us you do not want a representative government. So it stands to reason #5 would catch your attention.
    I'm starting to think you have devolved into self loathing.

First thought... SHB.

The only trap I ever heard of releasing the honey was one Hardwood did in Florida and the SHB totally destroyed the honey and brood. Two weeks sounds like the right time frame for the devils to do their carnage.

    I ended up extracting two deeps and a medium because the queen was in the top three mediums with no brood below her..   Worked out fine for me, and apparently her.

This only verifies the wisdom of my choice to use all medium boxes. I have both 8 and 10 frame but all mediums except for one deep that is not yet in use.

I can re-arrange frames without difficulties. Although I am still confused over just how much space they need for their own use before additional boxes can be considered "honey supers".

Some sources say the equivalent of 2 deeps, others say equal to 2 deeps and a medium, and there are those that are adamant that hives must be 3 full size deeps or more before any harvest.
