Re: Shouldn't there be a layens hive category in hive types?

I'm not sure what pictures in a book of old hive types have to do with a hive type currently in use. The Layens hive is reported to be currently in heavy use in Eastern Europe. They are supposed to be well-suited for treatment free beekeeping and I'm looking at building one myself. Solomon did a who...

Shouldn't there be a layens hive category in hive types?

I just thought it might make sense to have that hive represented in the hive type forums.

Re: Central Kentucky

I got four nucs from a guy in Western Kentucky who sells a few nucs every year. He also sold another guy two nucs, so I think he is tapped out.

Looking for treatment free nucs in central Kentucky

I live in Elizabethtown Kentucky and I would like to find treatment free nucs within a few hours drive. Farrell stock would be awesome, but anything locally bread would be great.

Re: Bee stings

The wild medicinal called plantain, is the best thing for bee stings. Crush up the leaves into a gooey mess and rub it on the sting after you have removed the stinger. You can put a Band-Aid over top of it and hold it on the sting if you need more relief.

Welcome, I would consider two hives a minimum. I started with two and I wish I had started with more.

Re: Central Kentucky

Sorry he does not have any left at this time. He may be up to selling some next spring, but he never sells many. The way I found him was posting on beesource in the in search of category. You might try that for yourself.
