    Re: Box joint machine??

    Check out a lock miter joint.
    No exposed end grain, cheap and easy to do, holds the 90 degree corners naturally,
    cost under $100, and WORKS WELL!

    What sort of music do they play?
    Do their pants hang so low you see their buttcracks?

    Re: Too many hives at 1 place?

    This.
    I recommend asking around to get the phone number of the guy with the hives and set up a meet.
    Most of the time a face to face talk with someone is the most effective way of resolving issues...

  9. Re: Facing existing hives in different directions

    So it stops bees from drifing?
    Ok, that makes some sense.
    Is it worthwhile to do to a small set of hives set a few feet apart?

    Re: How HIGH?!

    JP, would it be possible for you to posts pics of your SBBs so I can steal your ideas?
    They sounds pretty neat and I am sure others wouldn't mind some pics too.

    Re: 'Open Source' Beehive.

    Don't get me wrong, I too -NEED- a CNC router but I doubt many beeks have one.
    Wish they did.
    Better, that -I- had one, and a big one at that.
    I would expect a CNC'd plywood hive to have a short...
  12. Re: Facing existing hives in different directions

    I fail to see how changing the hive's entrance direction will affect the infestation rates.
    Feral hives a 1/2 mile apart is far from the same thing as hives facing different directions in an apiary....

    Re: 'Open Source' Beehive.

    I have to say that my thoughts on this are the same as you.
    Their "open source" design is also designed for a CNC router which I am sure all
    hip beeks have one in their workshop!

  17. Re: Canada wants tracking of individual hives? Just how would that work? Is U.S. ne

    Are you sure?
    I am pretty certain that the stuff coming in from China is NOT inspected even slightly.
    They also have very little pesky environmental laws
    to cost manufacturers money.

    That is a WIDE spread of pH!

    the pH of nectar that bees prefer.
