  2. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    I've never seen a 6-8 frame Hive boil out to where the forks were smashing Handfuls of bees. Hives with beards in 2 boxes are usually 20+ frames and ready to swarm.
  3. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    How many frames of bees did you have in your hives?
  4. Re: Any word on when bees could be released from almonds this year!

    Re: New gas NMC 1K loader

    I can't see why I can not tear the filter off on a forklift if it were to have one. Just not money wise...

    Re: New gas NMC 1K loader

    Keith, could you shoot a vid of the machine? How many hour difference with kubota and gas before a rebuild is needed?

    Re: What is Nosema and how can we control it?

    How can you control Nosema? I believe that a strong immune system in bees helps them control Nosema themselves.

    Re: Nosema spore counts this fall

    Ian, did you try the Super DFM this winter possibly? I don't think they claim anything on Nosema but you never know. Lot of folks underestimate the power of beneficial bacteria.

    How do you know the honey isn't from China? Might be a packer from Il but you don't know the source of honey. Might be USA honey but you never know...

    Re: U or W pallet clips?

    Mine are U clip 32.3/4. I like to keep things tight. If your strapping front to back the W boxes might shift a bit so if your going to use W make the lids a bit wider than 16.25".

    I use U clips and have no ants or rot in between. The gap in W collects all sorts of debris.

    Re: Getting bees ready to head to cali

    Funny you had to come here for plywood. I got several units of Best grade 3/4" HDO from brother for cheap. Gets it somewhere around LA but has some serious connections.

    Re: Getting bees ready to head to cali

    I move in from WA with no problems. No certificates no nothing. Ive moved in clean pallets and dirty pallets. Just make sure you don't have bunch of thistle hanging off your pallets.

    Re: Carniolans for North Colorado?

    People winter Italians in cold climate as well. I'm sure there are local breeders in your area who have Italians well adapted to your area.
