I actually went to the yellow pages and looked under Burlap. Believe it or not it had listings there. But I think some material stores have burlap. I guess I would prefer a place like I found that deals in burlap bags because they know the ones use for food stuffs and you won't accidentally get some toxic chemical. The bags I get are sown together and that string looks to be nylon or something so I pull it out.

Like Jerry said you can try looking in the phone book, or go on line. I get mine from a landscaper friend.

Coffee places often have bags.  Fabric stores have the fabric.

 Our local Rural King has burlap bags for $1 each, and the garden stores sell it by the yard as silt control covering.

I sell it at Lowe's in the outside garden center, but I can't keep it on the shelf.
As soon as it gets stocked, it is gone in a matter of hours.
Then I wait weeks to get more in.
There must not be much of a margin for them not to keep enough on hand.

Doak, right off the bolt at the fabric store.  Now that sounds the best.  Our Fabric Land quite often has incredible sales there, I never even entertained that thought.  So, off to the Fabric store I will go, one fine day.  Have a wonderful and greatest of days.

I bought burlap from the hardware store, food grade, but it burned up way too fast, I was shocked.  Then I went some distance away to the Honeybee Centre in Surrey.  This is where I have taken quite a few courses.  The owner orders in burlap sacks that have been treated with coconut oil.  It burns that cool, blue smoke (hee, hee, JP, have fun with this one) and burns for a long time.  There is no toxicity to the bees, otherwise he would not even think of selling it to beekeepers.  Yes, I would say the smoke is blueish, some may refer to it as grey, but then, doesn't grey border blue?  It is excellent fuel and goes for a long time.

I am heading off to the birch tree that has been laying on the ground now for a couple of years since our land clearing.  It is covered in what I think are called timber polypores.  I will take some pictures to show.  I am going to dry these and implement these with burlap for my smoker.  Eeeks, here I go again, I think I got carried away in this thread, my apology. Have a wonderful greatest of days. Cindi

Pappabear - Go to the feed store.  G & H carries it - it comes in a tarp size to cover crawfish when it's hauled.  There's a G&H in Iowa and one in Gueydan.   They may carry it at the Tractor Supply in Moss Bluff - north of Lake Charles.  But where you're at - call the Extension office in Crowley - they'll know.  If the tarp size is too big, there are burlap bags they sell for sweet potatoes.  Good luck.

OK, now I have a question about this!!  I just purchased some burlap from Walmart fabric department. They sell it by the yard.
Well, now I am wondering about this burlap if it is treated or not. How do you know when the burlap is treated with some chemical that might burn off and poison the bees?? I am afraid to use this burlap now, because I do not know.

I also purchased some pure, untreated, cotton batting to use for the smoker. What do you all think about this???

the only things that material sold in the us should be treated with, without a label are things like sizing and fireproofing.  a good washing with a little bleach should take out anything other than the fireproofing....and do a little research.  seems i remember something about labeling fireproofed material also.  + you can call walmart and at least get the name of the supplier.  the supplier should be able to give you the info you need.

my guess is that it's ok, but it never hurts to check and to wash.

Wash with bleach??? You mean in addition to the regular washing soap???  I did ask the women who sold me the fabric and she did not know anything.

Will look into this further. I do not smell anything really chemical like when I smell it.

Well now if it is treated with fire retardant-wont it be hard to burn - might be a good indicator -how much they charge?-washing smoker fuel is just a little bit crazy in my book if it burns use it -the best smoker fuel for you is the pine needels that accumulate on the side of the road especially after they have been run over -dont take my word for it this comes from our own golden boy randy oliver -one of calis finest-they gather huge amounts of this free resource for there years supply of cool white smoke-  cool RDY-B

Jerry, simply an astounding picture, so beautiful.  There is something about the countryside that holds an intrigue for me.  This type that you live with, the view for miles around, without anything to obscure the vision, I like that.  Do you live in a area that has any mountains nearby at all?  I like mountains, but we have too many, and we live to close to one, that makes our little spot on earth very cold and rainier than say, the other side of the river, in the flatlands.  Nice picture.  Have a great and greatest of days.  Cindi

Some of the old bags had a smell to them a bit like diesel fuel that I think was some kind of treatment so they wouldn't rot.  None of the burlap I've bought at the fabric stores have that smell and it has worked fine for me.  None of the coffee bags I've gotten have had that smell either and they have also worked fine.

i'm sure it's fine also, but washing it won't hurt.  a little bleach in addition to the detergent won't hurt.  don't need a huge amount. 

one thing about washing burlap...i have don't it when i got some that was pretty dirty....it sheds!!!!  if you can dry it outside, do so.  if you have to use the dryer, clean the lint trap often as it drys.

my coffee bags smell like coffee.  it's great!  smiley

pine cones (the small ones) work also.  the advantage to the burlap is that it doesn't leave the residue that the pine leaves.

RDY-B.

Yes, I worked with Randy Oliver 2 years ago and he showed me the pine needles he uses and told me how he gets them.  I will consider this at some point. Have to gather them in the fall, I believe.

Anyway, thank you all for the good info on burlap. I really believe this burlap to be OK and do not detect any unusual smell, and my nose is very sharp. I will, though, throw it in the wash as it cannot hurt either.

Thanks for all the help, which I so much appreciate

Cindi,
There isn't any mountains around anywhere. The only trees here were brought in by the white man. A story from the past is when the white man first started crossing these flat grounds they would pile up buffalo bones real high and then continue west. When the first pile was at some distance they would then make another pile. And so on and so on. This was so they would have some land mark to find their way back.

Many plumbing wholesalers (at least where I live) use burlap bags for material handling.  I'm a plumbing contractor and when I get a delivery, the materials often come in these bags.  You might want to check with a local supply house; they might sell you some.

OK, got a trivia question, maybe someone will know the answer.  Burlap sacks, gunny sacks.   It seems to me that when I was a young girl my Dad would speak of the gunny sacks.  Is that just old timer jargon, or does "gunny" have a distinct meaning?  Best of a great day.  Cindi

Annette, we use pine needles, there's a compost area behind the hive where there's always plenty of them ready to pick up and use.  They work well, they're close by and they're free, so if it's free it's for me!  Wink

Jerry, ha, ha, laughing and laughing.  Well, I never!!!  I love that song, it has probably been one of oldest and favourite songs EVER done.  The strangest and weirdest part, I never knew what the lyrics were saying, go figure that -- I did know the gator got her granny

POKE SALAD ANNIE!!!!  I still can't get over that I never knew what they were saying.

I always thought too, that it was someone else that sang that song, like CCR or something strange like that.  Where on earth do I live?  Hmmmm...maybe on Mars.  Have a beautiful and wonderful day.  Cindi

I bookmarked that page, so I can listen to Poke Salad Annie any time that I want, hee, hee, you made my day!!!!!

Elvis Presley also sang it...

OH! My bad. So in the song it is a tote sack. This burlap bag has got a lot of aliases.

Actually a Tote sack is not burlap, it is a cotton bag with a draw string.  Used to use one for holding my laundry when in the Army.

Jerry, ha, ha, laughing and laughing.  Well, I never!!!  I love that song, it has probably been one of oldest and favourite songs EVER done.  The strangest and weirdest part, I never knew what the lyrics were saying, go figure that -- I did know the gator got her granny

POKE SALAD ANNIE!!!!  I still can't get over that I never knew what they were saying.

I always thought too, that it was someone else that sang that song, like CCR or something strange like that.  Where on earth do I live?  Hmmmm...maybe on Mars.  Have a beautiful and wonderful day.  Cindi

I bookmarked that page, so I can listen to Poke Salad Annie any time that I want, hee, hee, you made my day!!!!!
Misunderstood lyrics are pretty funny - have you ever been to The Archive of Misheard Lyrics (be sure to read the URL of the webpage, it's pretty funny)?  I laugh when I think of the words I used to use on some songe because I just couldn't figure out what they were actually saying, here's a website devoted to the subject!  cheesy

Ann, now you got me laughing my head off.  This is the most wonderful thing, this forum, if it just plain and simply doesn't start one's day off with a bang and a laugh, or two or many, I don't know what else does (other than my Daughter's pittbulls that both come over in the early morning for their Gramma fix), the front door opens up, after they push it open with their noses, they see me sitting on the couch with my laptop and then they do something funnneeeee to catch my attention, or both just climb up on the couch beside me, tuck their heads between their front paws, all huddled up, keeping warm, and loving life.  EEEKs.....I am so off trackin' and always ramblin'.

Right....where was I?  Yep, uh huh!!!  About the lyrics to songs that are so often mistaken for weird stuff.  There is a song (I know now what the lyrics are), it is about "I was a work shop owner".  Well, I have no clue what I thought the words were, but  I also loved this song and I thought the guy sang the most funniest of words that made no sense.  But now that I know he was a "work shop owner", it is understood.  I still can't figure out the rest of the words though, guess I should get off my lazy butt and google it, but then that would be too much work, I hve better things to do, like read some more posts on our forum, hee, hee.  Have a fantastic day.  Cindi
