  1. i understand the block up the Waihopi is just a seed rising operation for the other blocks, it is said that it will be a state of the arttunnel house operations, going to be on a par to a prision as far as fences go, spot lights and more cameras than you can poke a stick at,
  2. We go for a Bush. Meadow both light and dark. Lighter for the creaming. And a multi (urban)for the hire hives. Also produce alot of lavender. But alot of this has been ripped out for bloody grapes.
  3. well happy new year every one, its been a while since i have been on here, whats happened at our end, first off we took no honey off last season, what honey we took off was by the box full this then went onto autumn splits, good thing we did this as we seemed to lose alot of hives for no real reason at all, hive sites have been looked at to the view...are they producing the type of honey we want, if not they are gone, the other thing is are the hives we seem to have to travel from one end of marlborough to the other worth the cost, if poorer producer they are gone, sales.. well if it wasn't for the farmers market we would be sunk, we are doing three markets per week, before xmas it was 4 some weeks, we have product in one super market, one cafe, one gift shop and one second hand shop, and one church market. we are looking at another 3 places to sell honey , but it is getting harder to find places that have not already got honey, now on top of all this the first part of the season very little honey hit the hives, plenty of flowering but nothing else, still not doing much better going by the hive in the back yard, so next week we are going to attack the hives bring back what there is and load them up for the main flow.....with luck,
  4. got one last week, only one we've seen this year, any way i was setting out on the grass having a feed and then the buzzing started, oh cool a swarm, this swarm flew right into one of the boxes i had piled up waiting for swarms, just so easy
  5. no problem iv'e reposit it, woops deposit it, oh dratts, reposted it, yes got it,
  6. you've found a new word
  7. not sure how to shift it over to the contest, Grant are you able to do this or do i repost it, ?
  8. oh ok thanks, it was a big sucker
  9. any one use post haste ? do fastways " aramex allow you to print labels,
  10. have to agree about the wasps damaged or lost hives due to wasps, our total would only be 3 this year, but hive loss and numbers or low numbers in hives that where strong one month ago is climbing for no reason that i can see, strips in tons of honey left on and in easy reach of bees, there seems to be a big lost in hives that were left on straw berrie blocks and vege producing blocks!
  11. I think you are right a bout the drought, it would be the driest i've seen it for at least 12 years here in Marlborough, had a few hives with the start of new queen cells, one with a supersedure cell as well, seems the bees maybe thinking the same thing
  12. a blind man would be pleased to see it, awesome and even the rustic door stop.
  13. like all bee keepers and extractors is pretty much a given that you taste a bit on your finger when working honey, frames etc
