    Re: Battery life with OAV

    I've had good luck just hooking up to my quad battery with the engine idling. Doesn't seem to drag the rpms down much, if at all. I'm sure a marine deep cycle would work really well, but i wouldn't...

  5. Re: What's she gathering from my cucumber leaves?

    Lots of small lady bug larvae and little black and white lady bugs on them... We've had plenty of black aphid-looking bugs on our tomatoes in years past. This year, we've seen mostly lady bug...
  6. What's she gathering from my cucumber leaves?

    We've had a major problem with white powdery mildew on our cucumber plants this year, so we've been keeping air flowing through the hothouse and watering as little as possible. I watched this gal...

  9. Re: Spring has Sprung in the Pacific Northwest

    Tough to say what the pink pollen is from, but I've been getting a fair amount of it as well. I've also been seeing some purple, white and pale yellow. I'm pretty sure the pale yellow is mostly...

    Re: discouraging sight

    I'm from a completely different zone than you, but here are my thoughts:

    Dead bees (even 50 feet or more from the hive) were likely dropped there by your undertaker bees. Watch the entrance...
  11. Re: What kind of bee is this and should I worry about it.

    I'm not convinced this is something you need to worry about. Looks like a solitary insect I've observed around here that doesn't seem to be a problem. Reduce the mesh size in your vents if you're...

    Re: Ok, what got you into beekeeping?
