    Re: Hive Beetles

    I know I'm coming late to the game and perhaps should start a new thread, but I was looking up SHB and read on "bugspray.com" that roach motels were a good lure and bees couldn't/wouldn't access the...

  4. Re: ways to keep bees warm in a tabletop display hive for a 3 day weekend

    I think you need to get your methods worked out ahead of time. Probably a heating pad sandwiched between the hive and foam insulation would be too much. Guys that shelter their hives try to maintain...

    Honey thieves will no longer have to steal your hives, just go to your outyard with a bucket.

    Re: Can a noob take care of 60 hives?

    Something else to consider is whether the hives get built up by the almond bloom. In what month do almonds bloom in Spain?
  11. Re: What to feed during Winter when the hive has no honey?

    I vote for Bernhard's method.
