    Re: Warped plywood

    Next time refuse to use inexpensive plywood.

    We use only 3/4 with at least 7 plys.

  3. Re: Method for not squishing bees during inspection

    Very good advice. Around our place if I found anyone failing to to this on any drawn comb loaded with bees they would considered "persona no grata" followed by a short "hasta la vista" if they failed...

    Re: prevent a new queen from leaving

    Why is your queen going to leave? Why do you want to stop her? Why not just clip her?

    Just remember. Any queen that is restricted from leaving by an excluder will also lay up drones which will...

  6. Re: Negative Dealings with Bjorkman Brothers in California Almond Pollination-2015

    Really good point Barry!


    Handshake agreements are precarious at best. Within the almond gig a lot of it happens. Since quite a bit of cash and reputations are at stake it is quite imperative...

    Re: Introducing queen to queenless hive

    I would worry more about your introduction procedure and timing than placement if I was you. Putting queens into hives that have been queenless a while gets trickier as the clock ticks.

    Was your contract to pollinate the crop or to supply the hives? ...

    Re: When to kill the queen?

    Am I missing something here or would it be best if I post a link to a calendar based on bee logic?

    I'm going to guess that the referral date is the pour date. IN other words its been six weeks...
  12. The difference between retarded and brilliant?

    When I was a kid I had a younger cousin from Iowa who the "experts" thought might be "retarded."

    While roaming through the creeks and fields during family visits in the 60's and 70's I would have...

    Re: Why moderator approval?

    Time for a little reality check on your part.

    Re: Super DFM - Honeybees

    Here in Cali the nosema count jumps all over the place. A set of hives can be clean in one instance and quite loaded shortly there after with a back to low not to far down the road once again.

    Re: the gold mine

    If so I do not see what vantage point you sit on to see things.
