    I hope that the new queen that will replace the one that flew off...

    Old toy train transformers and an old Kelley embedder do the trick for me, with a board under the frame to allow the embedder to push the wire down into the wax as it begins to warm up (as Laketrout...

    Re: Wintering Nucs - Redux

    Re: Hive moisture

    WARM moist air rises, as has been said by others in the responses.

    Re: Black film on vaporizer

    Normal evidence of use. Maybe it had a bit of something carbonize (as opposed to sublimate). Don't try to clean it. It'll never look as new as when you pulled it from the shipping box.
