yup...this is what happens when an alphabet agency controls product.  The failure here is lack of competition/capitalism. 

The solution of the government is to try to force some kind of price control.  never works.  The real solution is to get the government out of it.

Not sure of what you are asking. Sounds like you have painted the plasticell foundation for your supers. As you found out that helps. Do you have at least 3 supers for each hive? A good flow in TN can fill at least that much with having to draw out the comb.
Add your location to your preferences. TN is a big state.

Yes, I have the supers.  I thought about trying to draw some out this Fall, ahead of next Spring...but it's a pain.  I'll just wait and be as prepared as I can.

Appreciate your input.

A congressman wants to fix what they caused, you know how that is going to turn out. Just higher prices.
Agreed 200%.  The FDA blocks any company trying to market competition to the EpiPen so Mylan labs can make a killing.  The ACA (Obama Care) has influenced prices, too. 

If I could come upwith a product that some people absolutely HAD to have, that had to be replaced after one year and the government would protect me from competition, I'd jump at it.  Tell me you guys wouldn't.  Really?

Yep, those pallets make a great entrance way to the wood in your hives.  I don't think they'll do anything to the bees.  It's the wood they find tasty. Get them up higher.  Raise them and make sure they don't have a way to the soil and the termites probably will die.  They have to go into moist (relatively speaking) soil to survive.  Exposed to the air, they'll dessicate.

if you wear white painters pants you can write in pencil on your pants legs. copy into a notebook at the house & the pencil goes away in the wash.

If you use telescoping covers put the duck tape on the inside of the cover.  I use file cards, one for each colony, for the permanent records, the tape inside the cover is just a backup.

you might not want to wait. I worked on a house once that by the time the owners realized they had them the only thing left of the baseboard in a room addition was the paint.
