but to me it looks like you where pulling honey and the bees got disorientate -by use of fume board -or perhaps a bee-blower-those bees whernt free flying drift
We brought hives to the holding yard on a rainy day, and then the next day we shook the bees into a buyer's boxes. When you shake bees out of your box, and then take your box away, any bee that didn't stay with the new hive just turned into a free flying bee.
Countryboy, I see that you're into heirloom tomatoes too...we might need to start a seed swap!
I have well over 100 different varieties. I like to swap seeds for money. :)
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a thousand pics. I made a few vids of different heirloom tomatoes to embed on my eBay listings...to give folks an even better idea of what the tomatoes really turn out like.
yea that makes me chuckel because i have heard that the driving force behind the internets rapid sucess is porn-RDY-B
In the early years, porn was the only way to earn money on the internet. Pornsites were the first to find a way to provide what people want, and to get paid for it. Without people finding a way to use the internet to make money, the internet would not have built up as fast.
Countryboy, just curious but why on the video of you checking on your 18 day packages, you filled up a frame feeder with syrup and then put on an excluder and 2 supers?
If you will notice, I was running a single deep. Managing bees in a single deep is much trickier than in doubles. They will go from a small cluster one day, have a big hatch, and 2 days later ready to swarm. Giving them supers gives them clustering space. I know the bees will not store any syrup in the supers, because they don't have enough feed in the broodnest yet, and feed will just be used for rearing brood. It takes a frame of water, a frame of pollen, and a frame of feed to make a frame of bees. A gallon of syrup is about two frames worth of feed, so it gets burned through pretty quick.
