I finally had to re-register. I don't think I initially posted twice within the intro 2 week period and got dropped. No wonder my taptalk app wouldn't work right.

So, it was monster nectar flow this year; a nightmare situation. Everything was nectar bound and the bees were backfilling and one only has so much woodenware.
At any rate, we survived and looking forward to a normal varroa & SHB summer like the good old days..... :rolleyes:

Listen to others but make your own decisions. That way you own the results.

Please remember to read labels.

Welcome to Beemaster.
A lot of people get into beekeeping for the honey and get out of beekeeping because of the honey.
