    Re: Top feeder bee space problem?

  7. Re: suggestions for switching out old frames for new ones

    I agree with David's technique. The only thing I do differently is that currently, I am replacing my natural foundation with black so I can see eggs and larvae better.

    Re: concrete pad for hive

    I would guess that it is about surface area and spreading the weight of the hive out over a larger surface. Maybe a paver would provide more surface area than a concrete block that has the two...

    Re: Wax moth issue where to get bt aizawai?

    I am surprised that folks are having wax moths in honey supers. I thought they only went for brood comb, unless some of the frames have both honey and brood comb?

    Re: Whiten up the comb--how to?

    I swap out two to three frames per year. I install a new sheet of balck waxed foindation in the frame. They are ready for next year when I swap out two or three more. This is also how I open the...
