Another petition

Here is another petition from Credo, I don’t see a conflict in signing two petitions, we sure could use the pressure.

A student told me this morning that there was a swarm around one of her trees yesterday afternoon, and they were still there this morning, and they settled on the tree a bit later. I'm too new to…Continue

Will keep that in mind, Paul.  What are their genetics?  How is their honey production?  Gentle or AHB influenced?  Thanks for the heads up on the Willow on Cottonwoods, too!  :)

If you want REALLY local bees, I am sure I will have some to split. I have some that need no treatment and barely need feeding. Going on their third season. Why import non-mountain bees?

By the way - you Sacramento Mountain People... the Willow Trees and Cottonwoods should be blooming out in the next month and a half. Be ready for swarm control early!

James I met him for the first time yesterday, sounds like a great guy and a great beekeeper! He had good things to say about you.

I'm up for a carpool to Ken Hayes' seminar.  The only time I won't be available is April 26, 27 & 28 and again for one weekend in March.  Don't know the March dates yet.

I am ordering two packages from Beeweaver for pickup in Roswell on March 30.  They're $150 each.  I'm also getting a couple of nucs from Aurelio Paez in Anthony.

Phill Remick of Newbeerescue.com also does classes, and is willing to travel if there is enough interest.

Diana thank you! I meant to mention Zia and forgot! A nuc is better than a package by a long shot, it comes with wax and usually brood, the bees get a great start on winter. I don't know when Ken's seminar will be but I will probably go, up to a car pool?

Comment by Diana Calkins on January 27, 2013 at 8:40am

When is the seminar with Ken Hays?  I've wanted to go to it for years!

Comment by Diana Calkins on January 27, 2013 at 8:40am

Not going to purchase bees this year.  Robert and I considered purchasing a nuc from Zia Queenbee this year.  I like that they are raised at a similar altitude as we live in and are more "local" than California or Texas.  We decided to see how our current bees do instead.  When/If they swarm, we hope to persuade them to take up residency in the box Robert is building.
