  1. Re: Walter Kelley single frame observation hive

    Glad to hear it went well.

  2. Re: Walter Kelley single frame observation hive

    No, Bev... It is kinda hard to explain, but, the nails are down near the bottom of the end bars, (where they have the cutout for bee space.) They are nailed into the front and end of the...
  3. Re: When are my package bees no longer a 'package'?

    I would say you are correct.

  4. Re: When are my package bees no longer a 'package'?

    Mike... That is exactly what i would say.

    The minute you open the package and the bees go into some other environment they are no longer a package, BUT, they are still package bees. They came...
  5. Re: Walter Kelley single frame observation hive

    bevy.. To keep the frame from rocking and getting up against the glass, the first time you have the observation hive empty, nail two small nails in each end of the front and back of the observation...
  6. Re: Walter Kelley single frame observation hive

    Bevy... I always take a frame, and the queen, from a good strong hive, that has a nice pretty frame with some brood, some pollen, and a nice ring of honey over the brood nest for demonstrations. I...

    Re: Hinged lid on swarm trap

    Charlie B..... Just asking, doesn't the hinged top get in the way when you do have to do a cutout from the swarm hive, either at the swarm site or one of your yards. If the comb is attached to...
  8. Re: Dado sets. Comparison Freud SD208 and Oshlun SDS 0842

    Ravenseye... I suspect the larger number of teeth on my Onslun, (42) vrs the 12, on the Freud, could account for the difference in blowout, but, I will defer to someone with more experience and...

    Re: Hinged lid on swarm trap

    Mr. Beeman... I am retired so I have lots of time for messing around with frames and such. HA!! I too have had lots of bees move into vacant hives, full of drawn comb. Happens almost every year...

    Re: Hinged lid on swarm trap

    Charlie.... I have always found that if you put them in the middle, the bees tend to drop their own comb, attaching it to the hive top on each side of your bait combs. That requires a cutout, ...
  11. Re: Dado sets. Comparison Freud SD208 and Oshlun SDS 0842

    Unfortunately I cannot. I have never used the Forrest version.

  12. Re: Dado sets. Comparison Freud SD208 and Oshlun SDS 0842

    I honestly think you will with the Oshlun. Plus several hundred side rails for bottom boards and the side rails for telescoping covers.

    So far i have only made about a dozen deep and shallow...
  13. Re: Dado sets. Comparison Freud SD208 and Oshlun SDS 0842

    odfrank...Yes, it is a tunnel clamped to the saw table over the dado blade. It stays set up all the time on this saw.

    It has an alignment guide that rests in the miter grooves if I want to...
  14. Re: Dado sets. Comparison Freud SD208 and Oshlun SDS 0842

    PAHunter.... I built a tunnel for my boards to run through for making the rabbet cuts (frame rest, and rabbet on side rail of bottom boards) so there is NO WAY you can get a hand, (or anything...

    Re: Hinged lid on swarm trap

    MrBeeman... I run my swarm boxes a little differently.

    I put two frames of old drawn brood comb against one side of an old 10 framer. I put 2 sheets of foundation against the 2 frames of brood...
  16. Re: Dado sets. Comparison Freud SD208 and Oshlun SDS 0842

    One more thing about the dado sets. Someone will pick this out.

    The Oshlun set has 42 teeth on the two outside blades, whereas the Freud has 12. To get a Freud with 42 teeth, the price jumps to...
  17. Re: Dado sets. Comparison Freud SD208 and Oshlun SDS 0842

    rwurstr... I use Luan for follower boards. And, yes, it will control blowout..

    I cut the Luan 10 X 10 and run them behind the bee part. Then I cut the dado cuts off and reuse. (After the...
  18. Dado sets. Comparison Freud SD208 and Oshlun SDS 0842

    DISCLAIMER.... I start this thread with no malice of forethought, and realizing it may generate some discussion between professional woodworkers. I have no axe to grind, and I offer this...
  19. Re: Started trap-out yesterday here in FL

    PatBeek... I know about living too far away. I do very few trapouts any more. There are only 2 trees nearby, (one I pass each day, on the way to one of my bee yards). I will try to get 3 starts...
  20. Re: Started trap-out yesterday here in FL

    PatBeek... Nice video, and, looks like you are well on your way to eliminating the colony in the house.

    It is understandable that they would try to build queen cells. After all, your trap is...
  21. Re: Feeding feral bees for a future trapout

    Kenww.... Yes, if I am going to feed, very early Spring, I attach the trap and feed, using a migratory top with a mason jar.

    No actually, I leave the trap on all Spring, and Summer, . Then I...
  22. Re: Feeding feral bees for a future trapout

    Eric... I found two good threads which should help with the questions you asked above.

    1. "What to do with a tank full of bees" started by WD9N 12-28-2014. At post # 14 I explain many of...
  23. Re: Feeding feral bees for a future trapout

    Eric... Yes, I have lots of photos of trapouts. And a lot of them are already posted here on beesource in previous threads about trapouts.

    I use the trap more to catch starts from a tree, tank,...
  24. Re: Feeding feral bees for a future trapout

    I take the traps off for the Winter to avoid empty space that mice may move into when the bees are clustered in the tree. I would rather have the guard bees closer to the hive cluster during the...
  25. Re: Feeding feral bees for a future trapout

    Kenww... I have never tried that. In fact, I never use dry sugar, but, I suppose it should work. Especially if there is nothing blooming.

    I always feed through a migratory cover on the trap.
