THE COFFEE HOUSE ((( SOCIAL - ROOM ))) / Re: Internet controls

been watchin the clintons
Yes I have.

And on the topic of internet controls, this is how the "internet" becomes the "intranet".
I just read this article about foreign money pouring into the "broke" Clintons. I am sure there would be no influence peddling let alone any laws broken. And notably, the lame stream media does not find it newsworthy.

Remember the Riadys pouring funds into their campaign for Bill?  Sadly, no convictions happened until after the election had been efeected by the money.

Is there ever an end? 
THE 2ND AMENDMENT / executive order ammo ban
« Last post by sterling on February 28, 2015, 01:28:59 PM »
I guess ya'll have heard that our Dictator is gone to ban some 223 ammo. He is having trouble taking the gun so he is going after the ammunition needed for it to function. But I'm sure it will just be this one time thing. Prolly won't do it again.
I'm not sure but I don't think equipment needs to be treated because bees had Nosema. I think nosema effects adult bees. I personally  don't like sealing frames in plastic bags because of mold problems. I just stack mine on edge loosely after it turns cold and put them back on before wax worms start in the spring.
Randy Oliver has a lot of info about nosema on his website. It has been awhile since I read it but it could explain some things if you want to know more about nosema.

When they are clustered, as they might be, the bees will make very little noise. I can not hear them thru the wood even with a stethoscope. This Wednesday (for northern VA) it might get up to 55+. If it does I would expect to see some cleansing flights. Since we still have some cold weather coming, I might need to add more dry sugar to the hives. (newspaper with loose white sugar on it placed on the top bars of the brood box. Any suger that is not consumed can be removed when you begin your syrup feeding.)   -Mike

Thanks Colbee. I wanted to try one for the description you offered. But after the multiple reports time after time of the Texas BF's getting insanely mean, and worse in future generations, I was kinda glad my hive balled the one I had ordered. Maybe one day I will find a Ferguson Queen and give it a try. Not economically feasible to order one. Until then, I guess mine will be the open mated VSH daughters Im running now. Good Luck. Have a great spring. G

How good is your friend's hearing?   Keep the faith, they might just be huddled up and quietly conserving their strength. I haven't kept detailed records, but would gues-timate 10% winter losses over the years. There are just so many factors to consider!

Wow, 10%, hope I get there, thats something to hang your hat on. Congrats. G

Making sugar syrup with a guide to making it all seasons.

Also, gives you a guide to know how much 2:1 do you need to feed to get ____ frames of capped "honey" for winter.

Big G, I just noticed something funny, all summer, you chop wood, all winter you smile and wink.  What's up with that?   :grin:

Burnings alot easier than chopping. No, the woodchoppers gone with this new format, and I sure do miss him. G
