Gary and Margaret - Kiwimana replied to Lisa Cliffe's discussion wood or plastic frames? in the group Bees
"Well our bees prefer wax and wood, yes its more work for us. But we are more about whats better for the bees, we are worried that as the hive heats up the plastic may give off fumes. Thats my 10 cents worth Lisa...See ya...Gary"

Virgil Evetts replied to Lisa Cliffe's discussion wood or plastic frames? in the group Bees
"Plastic are far less work in the long run, but the bees seem a bit reluctant to use them and the comb isnt usually  as deep."

To Tony Culmer - Bees in Beach Haven

I live in Beach Haven and have bees. I'm more than happy to catch up and chat or give you a hand. I'm not an expert but do have some experience. If you'd like to get in touch ph: 021 314430 Lisa Cliffe Hi there,there are a couple of us here on the North Shore (Auckland) who are noobie beekeepers. We were interested in contacting other beekeepers in the area. We are in the Birkdale/Birkenhead area. But any one local would be great to hear from. We have been to the ABC, at Unitec, but wanted to…See More

Gary and Margaret - Kiwimana replied to Lisa Cliffe's discussion Hot Hive in the group Bees
"Hi Lisa, Yes I would look at requeening the hive, not sure where you located.  But this may be a task better suited for early spring.  Not the end of summer, the bees may not have enough time to create a new queen. The weather is very…"

Earl Mardle replied to Lisa Cliffe's discussion An abundance of Lemon Balm and oregano in the group Herbs
"I'd be careful putting either in the compost, you may find you have an ever bigger overabundance. I use both to stabilise clay banks and suppress weeds then make tea with the balm and hedge cut it when it threatens to take over the world."

Hot Hive

I have a hive that I started from a Nuc in October which is quite agressive. My other hive is gentle and easy going and a pleasure to work with.Not sure what to do with the other one and why it's agressive in the first place.I'm thinking re-queening might be the answer - any suggestions? (I did purchase this Nuc from a breeder so should be a new queen already???)See More

I like to grow fruit and veges mostly. We have a normal sized section so I can only fit so many fruit trees. I have a bee hive in the back yard also and I would love to have some chickens but I'm not sure if I have room.
