HONEY FLOW PREPARATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907

HONEY FLOW PREPARATIONS. It Is the common practice of bee keepers to put off getting things ready until the honey flow is In full swing. All the shallow frames should now be fitted up and made ready to put on as soon .as the tops , of the combB In , the brood chamber ire shoVlng white cap oings. If some drawn-out combs are at band, so much the better. Some bee keepers may not use shallow frames, but it will pay them to put these on first. Sometimes bees will swarm, sooner than work in sections. . When the task of preparing sections is delayed until the last moment (writes an English apiarist) many broken corners result Take a number ot sec tions In the flat, and wet well the Joints with a good supply ot boiling water, piling them one on the other to make them retain their moisture. When the wetting process is complete, overturn the pile so that those first moistened may be used first. Whilst the corners are soaking one may, with great advant age, cut the foundation, which should be ...

THE BEEKEEPER THE HONEY SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907

THE BEEKEEPER THE HONET SEASON. The active season hi the apiary is now close at hand. The honey results Trill' entirely depend upon the amount of at tention that the bees receive. Ants often make tnelr nests near the hives, and fre quently 'rob them of large quantities of honey. These may best be destroyed by pouring a kettle of boiling water on the crTminri nM,tinl*A Viv HiAirh Tf the ne&EtS are not approachable, the legs of the hives should stand In saucers containing ?water. This will effectually cut them off from the hives. Where hives have become weak, the wax moth will work havoc The best way to get rid of these Is to keep the hives strong. When the hives are examined, keep e sharp look out along the saw cut In the top bar and also among the quilts. It Is very necessary that the brood chamber should not lose any heat at this time of the year. Look to 'the corners of the quilts, end put on plenty of good nonconduct ing material.

Two wings, formed by the sides when raised, will hold about 2500 bushels more, broviding'12-toot posts are used In the clear for uprights. It .IB well to place the rafters 2% feet apart. They are made of 2 x 6-inoh stuff, and are 14 feet long. The accompanying sketch explains how to -brace the roof. These sheds are very handy, especially for those who are using an onion top ping machine. Often some growers place their toppers under the ehed, and top during rainy leather.
