    Re: Aurea Italian

    The karnica's didn't work well for me. I tried 15 of those last year. June splits. Built up very slow, even during the sourwood flow. Long story short, I lost all 15 over the winter.

    Are you running any of the Koehnen queens? If so, how is the performance?

    What about the hives bodies being sticky? I'm just wandering how the heat interacts with the heart in the south.

    Re: Hot Dipping Tank design

    Are the boxes sticky after the dipping process? In the Georgia heat I didn't know if the wax would melt and get sticky?

    I have been kicking around the same idea. I am torn between hot wax/rosin or something in a honey oil stain.

    Joseph,

    Those frames were on my try list for this year. I only ordered ten in black. All in all they are nice, kind of weak, but work good. My only negative on them is all the places for SHB's to...

    Joseph,

    I understand. Do you start your frames with starter strips? I have kicked around the idea of foundationless, just need to step out. For now I run plastic mostly. I do have some of my ole...

    Re: Russell Apiaries SunKist Cordovan Queens

    Congrats Joseph. That's awesome !

    Can you explain what lines you have in your mating yard? Are you running drone frames?

    You definitely have it dialed in.

    Dang Joe, you still have drones. I have only a few hives with a couple of drones. Good looking cell.
  20. Re: Hopguard against varroa and other mites - your experience is requested?

    Is everyone else seeing the lack of sustainable mite reduction after hopeguard treatments? It almost seems it doesn't have the knock out power.
  21. Re: Hopguard against varroa and other mites - your experience is requested?

    Interesting. Do you plan to retreat? The rebound is high.

    Steve,
    Bring it on. How many you need to winter?
