    At our April meeting Texas Honey Queen, Hayden Wolf, presented a very informative and challenging presentation about a new group of insecticides: The neonicotinoids. Because of the killing efficiency of the neonicotinoids, special precautions should be taken when used by homeowners and Agribusiness alike (see Texas A&M Agrilife Extension summary below) .

    Ms Wolf is shown with note cards containing ...

    My first big honey crop! I wanted to give Barry some competition, so here are some pictures of extracting at my house. This is Saundra and Chip taking honey off my best producer this year (11 gallons from this hive headed by a BeeWeaver queen).


    The three taller hives made more than 28 gallons this summer!! The NUCs in between were taken from the tall one in the center and the right end. That is a five foot ...

    Well, the two hives we got in April have produced 9 lbs. of honey so far, and I have two more supers ready to harvest. We have been blessed with a huge bloom of wildflowers and mesquite this year thanks to all the timely rainfall. The nectar flow is mostly Star Thistle and has made a really light mild tasting honey. Thanks again to Dwain for showing me how to harvest ...

    They were about 25 feet up in a oak tree tightly massed around a 8 inch limb. I had no way of getting them, so I called Dwain back and he agreed to meet me there the next ...

    Our club had a booth at the Celebration again this year. Lavonda Becker arranged for the space on the Granbury Courthouse square, and along with Earl Hillock and several others, spread good words about honeybees and how to live with them.

    Here is a picture of our primary Dino-Bee hosts at the exhibit. Hundreds of men, women, boys and girls looked wide-eyed at those bees and heard the joys of beekeeping. Well done all!


    P.S. The second day of the Celebration fell on an icy, windy day.....We didn't take the bees out in such cold weather, but more than 590 people visited our booth in just one day! Thanks to all who had a part in putting our best foot forward in our community. :)
