    Re: Mann Lake Extractor

    Not really. But even if I did, shipping from PA (the closest store) would end up running me about $200.

    Re: Mann Lake Extractor

    I got the flier in the mail, just saw it today. So yeah, it is in store only.

    Too bad. I've been in the market for an upgrade on my extractor, but like laketrout they are either too far away, just...

    Re: Mann Lake Extractor sale

    Based on their on-line catalogs, brushy mountain and mann lake's 18 frame motorized extractors are priced the same ($1,295).

    If brushy mountain went up $300, and mann lake went down $300, my god....

    Re: Out yard problems u can face

    There are significant concerns with outyards. None of which you've mentioned though.

    I've kept outyards for almost 10 years now, and have established probably about a dozen outyards over the...
  5. Re: Any problems with your commercial vaporizor?

    More than I probably should.
  6. Re: Any problems with your commercial vaporizor?

    My father once told me: When you buy a tool, make sure it is a well built, reputable device. Then you'll never have to buy one again.

    I didn't listen to him for years. Ended up going through...
  7. Re: People actually make a living with honey production??

    Jim,

    Yeah, some of my numbers may be off. But I wouldn't say crazy. I threw out a ball park $500k. Maybe you could do it for $350k. Maybe you could to it for $300k. I wouldn't go much further down...
  8. Re: People actually make a living with honey production??

    Certainly not.
  9. Re: People actually make a living with honey production??

    It's been stated, I believe by Mark, that probably less than 1% of the people that ask these types of questions actually end up starting into the business. And I think that's accurate. But for good...
  10. Re: Any problems with your commercial vaporizor?

    Sorry, I meant 3 treatments over the course of 3 weeks, not 3 weeks between each treatment.

    My mistake.

    I would like to do 4 treatments over 20 days, but I don't know if I'll be able to make it...

    Re: How To Go Fulltime?

    Take this from someone who has not become a full-time beekeeper:

    I've run the numbers over and over again. I don't live in a heavy honey producing area. State average is 35 lbs. 60 may be...
  12. Re: Any problems with your commercial vaporizor?

    Usually the broodless period is somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    It would be nice to do a single treatment in December and then not have to worry about it again until September. . . ...
  13. Re: Any problems with your commercial vaporizor?

    Do the temps have to only be above 37 at the time that you treat, or do they have to stay above 37 for some period of time?

    For example, yesterday was in the 50's, but at night it dropped down to...
  14. Re: Any problems with your commercial vaporizor?

    Maybe not the best place to ask this question, but tough to pass on the opportunity to discuss it with so many already OAV users.

    When is the best time to treat using OAV?

    I'm going to use it...

    Re: bispham's causal chain

    We are SO far away from anything that anyone could call a "natural process of co-evolution" that it isn't even worth mentioning the topic here.

    Re: bispham's causal chain

    I don't think I can possibly agree with any statement that would follow that sentence . . . .



    I'd agree, only slightly.

  17. Re: How many beekeepers come out even or better.

    I've been in it about 11 years myself. Been between 1 and 60 hives over that time period. And yes, I have been down to zero before.

    As far as trying to maintain the same number of hives, it's...

    Re: Swarm or bait trap help for newbie

    It's all about improving your odds. Nothing is fool proof, but the bees generally know what they are looking for. If you can give them a home that fits their criteria as closely as possible, they'll...
  21. Re: Temperatures at night for queen rearing

    I don't think you have to be a Qualified Farmer to file a Schedule F. You have to be a Qualified Farmer to exempt yourself from paying estimated taxes, but not from reporting farm income.
