WHAT EVERY BEEKEEPER SHOULD KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 5 February 1915

WHAT.EVERY BEEKEEPER SHOULD KNOW. The folloiwing condensed statenielits of what- all beekeepers should kn6w and practice are to be found in a pub lication of the Indiana - Experiment Station, U.S.A.: Pure honey does granulate. Honeycombs are not manufactured. "Any old thing" does not.make a suitable hive in which to keep bees. Queens are mated but once in their lives, and then out in the open air. Bees do not bite holes in ripe fruit, but they do suck the juices after the openings have been made. Bees may have some wisdom, but ig norant people give then credit for more knowledge than they possess. It does not pay to "jump head over heels" into the bee business unless there" is plenty of .experience to back it up. , It is not just a proposition of putting on some supers in the spring, and takI ing off a crop' of honey in the autumn. Beating a dishpan or ringing the din nor bell never settled a swarm'--they just naturally cluster after leaving the hive. Bees hate no more to do with th...
