  1. Re: Anybody Using the vmvaporizer to treat for mites?

    Sounds good Mark; thanks for all the good information. Just back from vacation (40th wedding anniversary) yesterday and pulling honey now. Crop looks much better than last year. Using Apivar strips...
  2. Re: Anybody Using the vmvaporizer to treat for mites?

    I'd be satisfied with getting 400 hives done in a day! By myself, I doubt I could put apivar strips in 400 hives in a day!

    Re: Smoker Fuel

    I share your pain Ian but, other than wearing a respirator, smoke is an occupational hazard of beekeeping. I quit smoking 30 years ago and I think I'm more sensitive to smoke because of it. They...
  4. Re: Anybody Using the vmvaporizer to treat for mites?

    Looks very promising, especially since you treated when there should have been lots of capped brood to protect the mites from the OA vapors. Treatment when the hives are mostly broodless should work...

    Re: Best bee truck

    Mine's a F450 Supercab and it has a 8 x 12 bed. I'd have to go back and check but I think you could get a crew cab with the chassis length to put a 12 foot bed on it. I thought about a crew but was...

    There's another one out there that a friend has used and says it works very well. If you google Lega Italy, you can see their catalog and the vaporizer. Their's uses a 220v heat gun and...
  7. Re: Anybody Using the vmvaporizer to treat for mites?

    Cool. Let us know how it works for you. I'm optimistic that we'll get a decent tool for commercial beekeepers and this may be the ticket.

    Re: Rim on Migratory Covers

    I'm a little different but I use 1/2" because I wanted the extra room for sub patties in singles. I feed pretty heavy when they are singles because I split later than most and I like the extra...

    Re: Shallows vs Deeps for honey

    I use 9 5/8 for brood chambers and 7 5/8 for honey supers. Deeps seem to be better accepted by almond producers and the 7 5/8 boxes hold a fair amount of honey. Deep supers are too heavy for my...
  10. Re: Anybody Using the vmvaporizer to treat for mites?

    Cool. Does it look to be well made?
  11. Re: Anybody Using the vmvaporizer to treat for mites?

    Not sure what you mean but my question referred to any outfit with a large number of hives to treat. Current mite treatments require that you open the hive, generally break two boxes apart, put in a...
  12. Re: Anybody Using the vmvaporizer to treat for mites?

    The beeinformed group tried to evaluate it last year but the bees had low mite loads prior to the evaluation so it wasn't a valid test. Their website says another evaluation is planned but it...

    Re: Hummerbee Snowblower

    I have one and my machine is an XL. Works great, blows snow as far as the blower on my 70hp John Deere blower and no problems with overheating the hydraulic oil. You might consider the canvas cab...

    That's the one. Anybody with any experience with the unit?

    Looking at trying one of their units but I'd like to see how well it has worked for others. Thanks, Chip

    Re: Flies that look like bees

    Hard to tell without a picture. Google "Syrphidae" or "Flower Fly". That would be my guess.

    Shelf Life of Pollen Sub

    Looks like I'll have some BeePro (Mann Lake) I bought for spring that I won't need to use till fall. The bags are lined in plastic. Couldn't find any information on the bags on shelf life. Will it...

    Same here Ian. The flowering trees and shrubs were just getting ramped up good too! Looks like I'll be feeding again, real soon.

    Re: Options on forklift - please advise

    I bought an XL and it does everything I want it to do. I pick up pallets of sugar that weigh 2500 lbs so full totes are not an issue. I use the canvas can only in winter when I use the snow blower....

    Re: Winter hives in Texas

    I was curious because I've heard that yellow jasmine has been overly abundant in the pine woods the past few years. Have any beekeepers had problems with that plant in your area?
