If you just came on this page and are
interested in honeybees for 2017 we are
starting to take orders for next spring.
We also have some large Extracting
Equipment 4 sale - A 20 Frame Radial
Extractor - Large Capacity Uncapping Tank,
large capacity spinner and a Cowen Uncapper
that we want to move this season.
We have placed honeybees in
past years up and including into the middle
of November. Often one finds warm days
that late and honeybees can be moved then.
My shift from June onward was to concentrate
on our nuc orders. If you are reading this page
now and you want a nuc it would be good to get to
A new beekeeper to Honeybees came to Forest,
Ohio from NC last Friday to get two 5 frame nucs
with marked Russian Queens.
He got his two nucs and left for home an
8 hour trip.
NEXT - A beekeeper from Tipp City, OH
came to get two 3 frame nucs with
marked Italian Queens this past week.
Next - A beekeeper is soon to come likely
this week for one or two nucs and maybe
equipment to run them.
Next - A beekeeper came this past Wednesday
and got a nice 5 frame nuc and related
equipment. Had not been a beekeeper for
about 30 years.
Don't wait call for a nuc now 2016
your hive will emerge in 2017 as
a second year colony
Golden Rod and Aster is in
bloom in most places in Ohio
and some other states.
I have plenty of deep and medium frames
plastic one piece coated with pure beeswax!
When large amounts of nectar is flowing
honeybees will draw any type comb!
If you are reading this don't miss out
on honeybees summer and fall 2016!
Many years in the past we have supplied
nucs or hives deep into fall.
One buyer came Oct. 16th for a 4 frame nuc
another came middle of November
and got two full size hives 2 deeps
Both beekeepers above saw their
hives get through the winter with our
help and information with the
Prescription information and DVD.
A grower for Pumpkins wants honeybees
this month so his fall crop does better.
I am placing a nuc with a gal from Ohio
in about a week or so.
Remember when the early slots are filled
you will not get your order as early as
you want it. The sooner you hive
your bees the better your honey yield
or better pollination of fruits and berries etc.
Two customers came several year ago
both got a nucs and returned home
with them in the middle of AUGUST and made
150 lbs of honey per nuc!
One beekeeper is coming this summer later on to get
bees to get nucs to pollenate a pumpkin
