    Re: How to make sugar syurp

    Flower Planter;
    Where are the studies that state HBH makes bees more vulnerable to disease? If that is true, why is it sold by major suppliers?

    Re: How to make sugar syurp

    I only use about a teaspoon of HBH per gallon, and my hives are eating close to a half gallon every two days. In other words a gallon seems to be mold free for 4 or 5 days anyway. I am not sure how...

    Re: How to make sugar syurp

    Heat the water, mix the sugar in until clear, and if you have some HoneyBee Healthy, put in a touch so the syrup lasts a little longer. It will get black mold if you keep it too long without HBH or...

    Re: Do I Have Afrcanized Honey Bees?

    Need to have some of them tested, but I have a couple of Italian hives that have the same temperament, so it is possible that you just got an aggressive queen. Go ahead and replace her, but send...

    Thank you.
  7. Can I move the Queen to make a split?

    I have a packed hive of two deeps and a super; all filled with brood and some honey. Can I take the queen, and a few frames of brood from one deep and make a new hive? Will the original colony make...
  8. Re: Has anyone tried this before? Beetle Moat Porch

    Tim;
    I thought the same thing, so I am making a porch roof on the bottom deep that will hopefully keep it from splattering or flowing over. It would depend on the angle of the rain fall too, so...

    It is #8 mesh. I will be trying them this season.
  10. Has anyone tried this before? Beetle Moat Porch

    I posted this the other day, and I am wondering what people think about it and if they have ever tried it before. Please let me know the pros and cons that you have experienced, or that you would...

    Re: Bettle Killer Bottom Board

    I see that the word "Beetle" is misspelled in the title of the initial post. My apologies.

    The hardware cloth is #8; the same thing I use for screened bottom boards. The beetles seem to fall...

    I know some will, but I have watched them land on the porch and walk right in . . . little buggers.

    Beetle Killer Bottom Board

    I am fairly sure someone has tried this before, but I just had to give it a go.

    This bottom board is equipped with a slide in board to close off the screened bottom in the winter, and to insert a...

    Very ingenious in regard to the shrinking of the cotton; I wouldn’t have even thought of that. Actually, if it was tight enough, maybe they wouldn’t chew on it. Good work. :applause:

    Thank you for your information on the QB. Just wondering what kind of fabric you used, and did the ladies chew on it? I suppose it is too early to check on that, but I am interested. When...
