    Attacked by dogs so w hen would be the best time to move bees?

    The thread was not hijacked - it developed. Thanks for your advice on how a thread should run, but I think we have that in hand, if you don't like the discussion on dogs in a thread discussing problems with dogs, please feel free to skip over the posts. You are free to do so.

    Well I'll be.........

    maybe a bite rather than a sting?

    Get yourself stung. it's good for you?

    When I first moved away from home, I had no choice but to wash my own clothes, w hen I used to come home on the odd weekend, it was always with a bag of washing as I had no washing machine at my flat and white uniform shirts were a PITA to get sparkling clean, my grandmother used to insist on...

    :iagree: If you use nothing else, at least use a simple veil - a sting up the nose is also an experience, completely debilitates you for thirty seconds or more which, if you're in the middle of mad bees is pretty bad news.

    Varroa

    And this isn't? This whole conversation started with your veiled attack on Pargyle, stop trying to twist everything and trying to paint yourself as the victim I find that rather insulting. I think it's time this was put to rest

    sugar price.?

    Been no change in the wholesale price of Belgosuc invert since March 2020, and the increase then wasn't much compared to 2019

    Just found out that our next door neighbour (she has four daxies) has had a litter off one of them - she's asking £3,500 - £3,700 each!!!!!!!

    Attacked by dogs so w hen would be the best time to move bees?

    It seems that rescue dogs in general is big business now, was speaking to a friend about it the other day (he'd been chatting to someone definitely in the know) As well as the issue with some rescue centres only allowing people a dog if they are agoraphobes who only leave their totally enclosed...

    What did you do in the Apiary today?

    Feeding and treating at the home apiary today, not used to doing it in the blazing sunshine with bees going like the clappers. Ivy hasn't opened at Brynmair but has locally as the heady aroma of ivy nectar is everywhere.

    Hay making in Autumn !

    It also depletes the ground of nutrients which means grasses like couch and rye struggle whilst wildflowers and traditional meadow plants thrive. Talking of hay making - the last few weeks has really taken me back to when I was about 13/14. We'd had a poor wet summer so had been unable to bring...

    If it's three miles away - move them now, better for the bees than trying to find a temperate period in winter.

    Best ideas to keep late season swarm trap bees alive through winter.

    Yea, right. That's a new one on me - better put it safe in room 101 with the other tales

    Varroa

    Your best bet would be to leave it until December and either vape or trickle OA

    SWMBO won't make me a cup of tea let alone wash my suit, Since I left home way back when I have always washed all my own clothes - so that doesn't explain her severe reactions.

    How the bees defend a nuc from wasps

    One of my regular walks when we were berthed at the marines base at Turnchapel was up above Jennycliffe bay to the great wall at Staddon heights that overlooks the sea. The whole area up there was just a forest of ivy, really heady when the flowerts opened

    Think you would need something with a little more guts than a .410

    What did you do in the Apiary today?

    Thinking the same - from experience (for some reason I changed the leg positions on two stands I made a few years ago) I once arrived at a new out apiary to find the lighter hive on the other side of the fence, in bits, colony goosed. they were on a slope so the heavies hive was still strapped...
