    Re: Check out my Homeaid Forklift

    You could probably fill the load carrying tires with foam so that you can pick up a little more weight with it. It'll be more of a bumpy ride but could be worth it.

    Re: round-up ready soybeans and honey bees

    This was just posted on Sott.net today. I know the original poster only mentioned the GMO seeds (called "Round-Up Ready") and didn't mention if the farmer would be using a herbicide or not. I figure...

    Re: First box - with pics

    Those handles do look a little shallow. It might be a little hard to pick that box up when it's full of honey.

    I have one of these bits. Mine is really huge and has a 1/2 inch shank on it. I still need to play around with it a bit more to figure out the best way to set it up to use it efficiently. I have a...

    Re: Custom height langstroth frames

    I agree with EastSideBuzz. I have 1 deep and everything else is mediums and the deep drives me nuts. I'm converting everything over to mediums but it's a long process. ;D

    Maybe you didn't notice I said well above 95F! But anyways, obviously they can keep them cool. I was thinking that they might be making a harder wax with thicker construction of the comb because of...

    Comb Adjustments for Climate

    I've always wondered if bees make adjustments to their comb based on their climate situation and I think I've found some positive proof that they do.

    Re: AHB in tree

    In case you were wondering how to identify whether bees are Africanized or not.

    A good video that will help you identify them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrvNibjRM0c

  14. Re: Stats - how many beeks actually get stung in an eye?

    This makes sense because reading glasses help you focus on things that are right in front of your face - like a book, or your veil. You need a pair of glasses that helps focus a little farther out -...

    Re: How To Disolve Beeswax Off of Concrete Floor

    I'm not sure if this will work... but it's worth a shot because any wax will screw up your paint.

    Take a brown paper bag and lie it flat over the areas where you want to remove the wax. Turn a...

    Re: Feeding Pepsi syrup to Bees?

    Maybe explore getting a patent on "Cola Flavored Honey" first. Once you have your patent you could then feed it to your bees. ;)

    Re: Foundationless Frame Designs

    Please let me know how this works out for you. It would be nice to have it attached all around the whole frame. If your bee-inspiration works I'll probably look at doing the same.

  22. Re: How much honey can fit into a 1/2 pint Mason Jar?

    I think he was referring to ounces in weight, not volume.

    Makes me glad that metric was invented. :D

    1 liter (1000 milliliters) of water = 1 kilogram (1000 grams) = 1000 cubic centimeters......

    I don't think that you can claim that until... Well... Until it's over.

    Just a technicality in accuracy.
