Wild Carrot? Queen Annes Lace?
« on: July 24, 2009, 12:17:13 PM »
We have a lot of what I was raised to call wild carrot,  I think it is the same that I have heard called Queen Ann's Lace?   Is this good for the bee's?  Does it make good honey?   I have heard that Goldenrod is not good flavored?   Our golden rod won't be around for another month or so.

Queen Anne's Lace is the wild carrot, I don't know about making honey but I have heard that if you put queen ann's lace on top of the inner cover it keeps ants out of the hives.

If they are working Queen Annes Lace pull your supers and harvest.  It is horrible stuff.
