  1. Re: Anybody Using the vmvaporizer to treat for mites?

    Re: Rim on Migratory Covers

    I'm a little different but I use 1/2" because I wanted the extra room for sub patties in singles. I feed pretty heavy when they are singles because I split later than most and I like the extra...

    Re: Shallows vs Deeps for honey

  5. Re: Anybody Using the vmvaporizer to treat for mites?

    Not sure what you mean but my question referred to any outfit with a large number of hives to treat. Current mite treatments require that you open the hive, generally break two boxes apart, put in a...

    Re: Hummerbee Snowblower

    I have one and my machine is an XL. Works great, blows snow as far as the blower on my 70hp John Deere blower and no problems with overheating the hydraulic oil. You might consider the canvas cab...

    Re: Flies that look like bees

    Hard to tell without a picture. Google "Syrphidae" or "Flower Fly". That would be my guess.

    Re: Options on forklift - please advise

    I bought an XL and it does everything I want it to do. I pick up pallets of sugar that weigh 2500 lbs so full totes are not an issue. I use the canvas can only in winter when I use the snow blower....

    Re: Winter hives in Texas

    I was curious because I've heard that yellow jasmine has been overly abundant in the pine woods the past few years. Have any beekeepers had problems with that plant in your area?

    Joe, how difficult would it be to get a highly desirable scent (e.g. honey) in a nutritious sub for dry feed applications? I remain concerned about nutrient quality inside the hive and would like to...

    Re: Custom Pollen Sub?

    Interesting food for thought but probably has less to do with nutritional differences and more to of with what the bees perceive as available. A natural flower, and especially one that provides...
