True that, I try to catch them before they hit 2ft long and morph into Triffids.
Made up the bridle today.
I keep Bees.
Love that, had some a few years back. How many you got - pictures Please
I dabbled a bit.
One hive in my garden here in Sydney and three hives in Tassie. I haven't seen my Tassie bees for a few months but am going down Friday and will see how they've gone over winter.
No pics I'm afraid, unless a video of small hive beetles in dying in diatomaceous earth counts
Actually, I do have some.
Tassie bees sharing a thistle with a bumble bee which we don't have on the mainland.
Sydney bees bearding in summer.
Tassie hives, a while back now. Hives 1 and 2 from the left are the strongest. 3 is an angry hive and 4 which was a split from the angry hive died.
Comb. I took almost 80L from the Sydney hive last year. Tassie was harder but still took 20L and left the girls with a lot for themselves to give them the best chance over the winter.
working and trying to fit in too many ideas and projects and stuff in to the time remaining
I keep bees too. Three hives, and another new one which I caught as a swarm a few weeks ago. A new queen should arrive in the mail tomorrow for this one. They are all having a bumper time at present as we've got mass flowering of several Eucalypt species after a couple of very lean years. I'm going to put on another full depth super on each of my three hives on the weekend. I sell all my excess honey to work colleagues.
Visited a mate in Junee last weekend and he just keeps his bees attached to the house. Been there about twenty years.
I wouldn't mind requeening my angry Tassie hive but I can't be bothered at this point to be honest. Also it is nice to have a hive that is so different to all of my others as a cross reference.
I've been keeping bees for two years now and have still not seen a queen! I'm not even sure I could see the queen when she was captive in her cage when I received me package bees on day one.... I think I need glasses
I sell to people in the neighbourhood, covers the cost of Jars and maybe some wood ware. I could sell to people at work but it seems weird! Gave some to the local cafe too just because they were using Capilano and that upset me
Love my bees even the angry ones!
bet telstra loves coming out to fix something
Here is my new queen, and three support crew, arrived by mail yesterday and put into the hive.
We have bees in a big gum tree in the back yard for years, must do something with them one year...
I re sheeted the end gable of our house 2 years back. Found in between the studs a dead beehive ! I had no idea it was there. It was upstairs gable.
How would your mate extract honey from that ? Guess he doesnt bother.
When Im not riding, I
Sport, if my 3 yr old grand daughter saw this horse you'd never get her off it. The only thing that could improve it , in her mind, would be a single horn to make it a Unicorn! I can't wait to show her the pics of your horse.
Took the Tiger to Wakefield Park for the Historic Sports and Racing Cars Association meet.
I was struck by the contrast of riding the modern Sur-Ron electric bike yesterday and enjoying the mid-twentieth century dinosaur technology today. No contest!
Troy must do a more than us, he has an entire thread just for himself.
