  1. Re: Common mistakes or other topics for a class.

    Preparing a hive up to and for winter as far as feeding and wrapping hives, adding windbreak, closing up screened bottom boards, and mountain camp feeding might be a good add on. I heard winter...
  2. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    It played fine for me from the drop box as far as speed. It was enjoyable to watch. I bet that you got the queen. It looks like you got a nice sized cut out. Video taping and doing bee work will...

    Re: Do bees know their beekeeper?

    When I had a bunch of hives in my backyard I experienced a number of things. One was that if I was down at the store which is a few streets over bees would buzz right up on me and fly away. I am...
  5. Re: Ontario beekeepers suing for $400 million in damages

    It seems quite a coincidence that fingers point to pesticides giving the bees death. Something needs to give. Maybe this will make a difference toward a better co existence of chemicals and bees in...

    Re: SHB IPM Bottom board experiment

    Something inside to snare the beetles would be nifty. I bet that as you revise the design ideas will rise to the surface. If that screened section slid out you could freeze it for a night. I could...

    Re: A smelly smell that smells smelly...

    This covers some of it. It is fermenting pollen etc. Maybe that is what you are smelling and I have smelled also.

    Re: A smelly smell that smells smelly...

    The smell you are describing sounds like something fermenting. Could it be the pollen mixed with moisture? I have smelled that before but it is not a unhealthy thing it is a honey comb/bee hive...

    Re: SHB IPM Bottom board experiment

    Very cool David. I have had some this year and something like this may have been enough to dent them down a little more. It appears to be like a set it and forget it which is nice. I agree that the...

    Re: staying a hobbyist

    Re: Queen cells

    The first thing I would do is look for a queen and see if there is eggs and brood. If they don't have eggs and brood then they may have replaced the old queen and that is why you are seeing the...
  13. Re: Can I overwinter Bees in a nuc in North Carolina??????

    I'm north of you and I did it last year. It worked well despite the cold. It convinced me to favor working with nucs this year. I had a small entrance at the bottom and a tiny entrance in the middle...

    The gas dispenser is named the no spill gas can even though it is plastic. It was great for filling the chain saw.
