    Re: Maxant Mobile Uncapping Tank

    I have their extractor as well and it's great. I was questioning the uncapping tank. I was hoping that those who had one (other than Maxant) would reply.

    Maxant Mobile Uncapping Tank

    Hi,
    I've outgrown my Mann Lake plastic uncapping tank and am looking at the above. Anyone have one? Likes or dislikes please. Also, if you have another make, what is it and how do you like it?

    Re: Does OAV hurt open brood?

    There are no US regulations regarding putting the honey supers back on 24-48 hours after treating. In fact, the label for OA just says not to vaporize with the honey supers on. 10 minutes is...

    Re: Does OAV hurt open brood?

    You can treat, but not with the honey supers on! You must either remove them or place a barrier (coroplast, cardboard, etc) between the brood nest and supers.

    Re: SHB takeover

    Just leave them in there longer and you'll be fine. I see larvae crawling out of comb and freezing minutes after placing a frame in the freezer.

    Sure you could use BW. I was going the inexpensive (cheap) route for those who did not have BW.

    Re: Keeping hive beetles out of pulled supers

    I find after/during the bees cleaning them up is the problem. While cleaning them, the supers are exposed to SHB with no bees to corral or deter them. The SHB enter, lay their eggs.......and then...

    Re: Keeping hive beetles out of pulled supers

    When you find out let me know. I have the eggs hatching in mine, then the larvae come. I freeze mine after I bring them back from being robbed out.

    Just bring water to a boil and dump some "chunks" of canning wax into it so that there's about an inch of wax floating on top of the almost boiling water. Then, with a dipper of some sort, dip the...

    Re: Does OAV hurt open brood?

    I always like to test before I treat, but if you can't and have seen the mites you've seen, I'd treat. Look at the mite-fall the 2nd day and get back to us.
