GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Re: storing queen cage temp
« Last post by chickenwing654 on August 01, 2015, 07:50:57 PM »
Hi,

Thanks for your help.  To clear up a few points, about my walkaway split.  My only concern would be if they did build queen cells or not.  I made them queenless, then two days later, I gave them freshly laid brood in a frame.  Then I left from Maine and came down to MA. 

They may have built queen cells to make their own queen, but I am not there to see that.  I figured I would bring a queen when checking on them in case they didn't make any queen cells  on there own.  So you don't recommend putting the queen (in queen cage) in the hive?  I figured they would tend to her until she emerged (or in her case not emerging). 

I got the queens from my local bee supplier.

If the bees have in fact created queen cells, would it be beneficial in putting on a queen excluder letting the cells hatch out.  Maybe try a two queen colony with my extra queen?

Good to hear Steve. I take that you already have bees, if not at least put up some empty boxes. No one will know the difference.

but that doesn't mean tax dollars from people who are vehemently opposed to abortion should have to pay for it.

Exactly, although the argument could be made that you don't stop murders from happening by making murder illegal, yet it is illegal.

And for those of us who believe life begins at conception, abortion is murder.  at any rate, no tax dollars should be spent on it.  If folks think it's so important, let them donate to PP and fund it.  Or let states fund it if they wish.  most of the things that get federal dollars, shouldn't.

What is wrong with the pollen in your area. The best protein for your bees is the real thing. I have no idea where you are located, but here my bees would not touch that stuff, at any time of the year.
Jim

because there is no pollen in such time in morocco, so I feed them pollen substitutes and sugar syrup.

Why 9mm?
1. My wife is good with it. 45, not so much
2.  There has been a lot of development in the 9mm rounds that has not been carried over to others, not even the 10mm/40.
3.  Lower cost and more available ammo.  We have a 22 handgun, but stores are always sold out; limit 1 box, 3 boxes arrive, gone in 30 seconds to those standing there when they unload the truck.  The ranges I've been to can barely get enough for their needs.

I've looked at the LC9s and shot it. I really like the smoother styling, but didn't like the trigger or sites and the machining seemed very loose.  On a new gun the slide rocked side to side and I was told that was normal and a good thing.  I said "thank you" and walked out.  On further research this seems to be a recurring issue, but not on every unit.

I also don't like the attitude of buying a gun, then replace various parts to "get it right".  That is like buying a smoker and replacing the bellows before it is ever lit because you like canvass instead of yellow plastic.  I'd rather buy the canvass one to start with, if I can.

I dont know how farm rentals work but something I've wanted to do is succession plant a field with phacelia tanacetifolia and find out how profitable it can be. With bees, pollen, honey, wax, propolis and flower seeds how could this fail?
