  5. Re: Help Deciding between Warre and Langstroth

    I have a few Warre hives, or more precisely Roger Delon hives. Normally I avoid these discussions on hive types.

    There are lots of foggers gathering dust that beekeepers have used with FGMO. I tried it. Imported a fogger from England, cost me a fortune, what a waste of money.

  15. Re: Setting up a mating nuc then transitioning from mating nuc to?

    I overwinter nucs on 5 or 10 frames. The two frame mating nucs are just for queen production, but clearly these can be turned into five or ten frame nucs to overwinter by pulling queens and dividers.

    Re: Is it worth trying to save?

    Put a queen excluder onto one of the strong hives and your week hive on top of that, three weeks later you will have a viable colony in the week hive that you can return to its original hive stand.

    Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow" - Flow Hive

    Once you hit your target the % you pay indigo goes down, so it makes sense to set your target lower than the amount you hope to raise. But I agree 1000% must have been a big surprise.
