  1. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    I can't believe no one has mentioned the one obvious and undisputable drawback: no comb honey with this gadget!

    Re: How to hold steady at a hive number...

    Good thing I don't come to BeeSource for marriage advice. :shhhh: When asking how to hold steady on 10 hives so as to keep a promise to my spouse, over half of the advice is to keep getting more...

    This is a robber screen, right?

    Years ago, I bought used equipment from a hobby beekeeper. It came with two of these:15935

    Maybe I am being dense, but I can't figure out what it is. Is it a robber screen? It fits perfectly...

    Re: Wax Melter Question

    I built a good one out of a styrofoam cooler (the cheap ones that frozen steaks come in). Line the inside with aluminum foil. I set a scrap of glass on top and made a hinge of duct tape. Set it in...

    Re: How to hold steady at a hive number...

    Heh. Thanks for all the beekeeping (and marital) advice. I liked the idea of FFA/4-H donations.

    How to hold steady at a hive number...

    Years ago, when I got my second hive and ordered equipment for a third, my wife asked, "Just how many of these things are you going to get?" I (naively) replied, "Oh, I could never imagine having...

    Re: D Coates Nuc ventilation

    No ventilation hole needed-even if you are a great carpenter, the lid won't be terribly tight fitting--plenty of room for air exchange.

    Re: Euthanizing Hives with Mites

    You didn't ask for advice about your method, but I agree with other posters that this seems wrongheaded and poor animal husbandry.

    But if you are looking to kill bees and not damage anything else...
  15. Re: If at first you don't suceed.....blah, blah, blah...

    You didn't actually say that your bees were dead. Are they dead or are you just worried about them?

    Sounds like a lot of things went wrong for you: (1) poor fall stores (this happened to a lot...

    Your nuc doesn't need room until they start drawing in the spring to accommodate the excess pollen, nectar, and brood. The bees in the nuc are surviving just fine. Don't mess with them now. In...

    Right, so I would scrap the comb and vacuum or trap out the bees.

  24. Re: How young did you get your kids involved?

    I took my kids out when they were 5 in little suits. Short attention spans, though, and they can't really do much useful. When they were 4, they helped me bottle honey and spin the extractor.

    Re: wood filler/wood puddy

    I am also confused about the "holes inside the box" statement. If it's a knot or something inside the box, the bees will fill it with propolis. Just leave it
