  1. Re: Problem with Trap-out - entrance is around some pipes!

    gooooood idea. I think that's what my friend Dale suggested too. And I think it might be the thing to go with. I have taken the time to read about Mr. Hogan's trap out info. He's ingenious, really. I...
  2. Re: Problem with Trap-out - entrance is around some pipes!

    Thanks everyone for your help. Just wanted to update - I did this trap-out, using aluminum foil and a couple one-way escapes, but alas, the homeowner had another hole (again around pipes) not 5 feet...

  5. Re: Problem with Trap-out - entrance is around some pipes!

    Thanks for the input, everyone. I made them aware of the issues when you leave old comb inside a wall prior to agreeing to try a trap-out. I think it might be prudent to remind them again.

    I have...
  6. Re: Problem with Trap-out - entrance is around some pipes!

    I tried putting a wire trap around it. Didn't work so well. It was going fine at first, but I can't attach anything to the wall. Nothing sticks to the plaster, and as mentioned, they don't want me...
  7. Problem with Trap-out - entrance is around some pipes!

    Re: Is treatment free possible for a newbie

    I, like some others here, have been lucky enough to have a mentor. Even being a year in, it's nice to know I can still ask questions and be surprised at the answer. I hate most hobbies because I get...

    Re: Youtube videos for presentation

    There's a program called Keepvid. I've used it when I know I won't have an internet connection. Copy the URL of the video you want and go to that site. Should give you what you need. Good luck!:)
  13. Re: Wax melting/filtering...in the oven???????????

    I age with the previous poster. Pop the wax out if the crock pot. Might want to throw the pot in the freezer first so it pops out clean. Good idea.

    Re: saving a CCD "orphan" queen?

    If you had a few bees left with a queen, are you sure that was a CCD hive? From what I've heard, CCD hives are like a ghost town with nobody home at all...but I haven't personally experienced one,...

  21. Re: Hello! New Beekeeper - Urban Beekeeping in Los Angeles

    yes...Africanized. The County of Los Angeles believes all feral bees in my area should be considered Africanized. However, as long as precautions are taken (wear a veil and some gloves, silly) and a...
  22. Re: Hello! New Beekeeper - Urban Beekeeping in Los Angeles

    Yes indeed. They certainly love the landscaping with all the flowers, and the enormous pools everywhere for water.

    Re: Veil Observation. Your Opinion?

    The yellow is harder to see through. The black is easier b/c your eyes ignore it - like wearing sunglasses. It has no color to distract you. Black absorbs light rather than reflecting it. Yellow...
