    Re: Mounting an Extractor

    Extractors mounted on castors do not go anywhere, unless your floor is very badly out of level. It will make a very small (1/2") circle. Kinda like it is doing the hula.

    I wouldn't have mine any...
  2. Re: Preventing an extractor from walking?

    I just went to Home Depot and purchased the 2 1/2 in hard castors. They have a 132lb capacity. That is per castor, so you shouldn't be exceeding the weight limit with 3 castors even with your 18/22...

    Re: Costco Honey

    Deknow, I second the props for reading the article for content as well. I was duped by the fancy talk and innuendos that they were selling 100% US Honey and that it was not ultrafiltered/strained. ...
  6. Re: tap water and mixing sugar water. don't work!

    This is almost exactly what my friend does. He puts the sugar into a plastic tupperware or similar container. Then wets it just enough to get it to stick together. After it dries a bit the pops it...

    Re: Costco Honey

    Hats off Costco! Nice job!!!

    I think it is terrible how much honey we import from out side this country.
  9. Re: Neighbor being bothered by my new bees

    Seriously, I have to go with Dan (aka KQ6AR) and Joseph on this one... There is no way your bees are being aggressive that far from the hive. Even if provoked that far away they would simply leave...
  10. Re: New hive from bees in concrete wall

    Definitly need more information...



    Sounds like from what you describe, they were trying to find their queen.


    How did you end up with two boxes??? Did you just have enough bees for two...

    Rod,

    You took the words right out of my mouth. I was replying when I refreshed and saw your similar reply. LOL. :D

    Re: Smart Guards

    It is just the opposite for me. When I go out in plain clothes, they could care less that I am there. No matter what color I am wearing. But as soon as I put on the veil, they are on me.
  14. Re: Extermination vs. Structural Removal

    Seems to be the standard answer given by exterminators around here too. Sure is good for the beekeepers that do cut outs though...

    Most of the beeks in our area that do cutouts, only do the...

  16. Re: I SPLIT on June 24th Please advise

    Keefis,

    Awesome update!!! Like you I have always wondered how the queens find the DCA. Especially when you consider that she will fly up to 12 miles (so I have read in some books) to find them....

    RABray,

    I am jealous, yours looks better than mine. LOL :) Nice cutout for the honey gate, love it! Also, great idea on the added height, I may have to take mine and modify it to match yours...
  18. Re: Preventing an extractor from walking?

    Speaking of cleaning the extractor... Does anyone let the bees lick it clean?

    I tried it and it took about 1 day, they had all the honey cleaned off of it. Tomorrow I will wash it with the...

    Re: Hello from Texas Gulf Coast!

    Very normal. Just because one side of the frame has one thing doesn't mean the other side will too... The only thing certian about the bees is that they will do things their own way. :)

  21. Re: Robbing video, please review and suggest.

    Re: old frames after extraction?

    I agree with Honeypeach. If you are sure the equipment is disease-free.

    Uncap, extract and let the bees clean up those supers. Either put them back on top of the hives (after you put your bees...
