  • Anything you want to know about honeybees

    Had a thread like this years ago. I'll put it up again. Who knows someone may actually have a question.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

      What is the latest reasoning concerning the mass die-offs of so many honey bees? I read that nearly a quarter of the U.S. honey bee population died over the winter

      I'm always still in trouble again

            There is no real consensus as to the cause. Many folks see neonicotinoid insecticides as the culprit, but I don't know. That is your answer.

                I have sold wax once, but it is not normally part of my routine.

                  Do you make candles? Are there other things you do with the wax?

                    You're not planning another get rich scheme involving your ear wax are you?

                      I have made a few candles. My latest idea is honey/beeswax soap. Someday. I should add that I do not get all that much beeswax since I reuse the combs after extracting the honey.

                        With ear wax all schemes are get rich very slowly.

                          FYI: pure beeswax is used as a lubricant (woodworkers use it on screws, for example). Soap making ain't for the faint of heart -it's a lot more work than you'd think (but so is candle making...)

                              Is harvest before winter the norm?
