    Re: Is this a dead queen?

    I can't blow up your photo, looks like a drone. Are the eyes larger than on your workers?

    squareperg I grafted 45 larvae. I had my nine year old daughter help.
  6. Re: Easiest type of cell builder for a beginner

    I grafted today and did not have any pollen to rub in, so I put a pollen pattie on the top of the frames. I had some half frames of pollen I put adjacent to the grafted frame. I have seen Palmer do...
  7. Re: $10 to make a vaporizer, so why buy one for $190?

    Buying the Varrox like I did has already paid for its self in treating my 17 colonies. And it seems to work flawlessly. If yours works great more power to you, but the ones SNL sells do work.
  8. Re: Easiest type of cell builder for a beginner

    You will also want an open frame up top otherwise all of your queen cells will be joined together with wax. They need a place to build.

    Re: New fresh cut lumber

    What kind of lumber? You may be looking at more than a couple weeks. Also in the sun they might twist and warp. Usually boards are stacked with stickers in between to allow for air movement.

  15. Re: Is 55 a Safe Temperature to make Nucs?

    I say go for it. We are having an amazing spring. I am planning on grafting next weekend. It would be nice to get your queens mated with overwintered genetics instead of some genes fresh from Cali...

    Re: Greeting from Oregon

    If you can't swing another package at least put in some LGO and use it as a swarm trap. Another thing you might do is check your supplier a couple days after package delivery, sometimes the order...

    Re: Greeting from Oregon

    Welcome. Since you are not working why don't you just make a copy of the TBH you bought? It will save some coin and be satisfying at the same time.

  22. Re: Any problems with your commercial vaporizor?

    The OP is about problems with commercial vaporizers, not a show and tell on homemade models. I bought the Varrox and am very pleased with it.

  24. Re: alternative covering for telescoping outer cover.

    I picked up a stack of election signs at the dump. I use them to cover my tops, as an inner cover, to divide ten frame into two fives, and am going to make a Cloake board this weekend with one as a...
