  1. Re: Which would you buy: Biovet Varrox vs. Heilyser Vaporizer?

    I've got the Varrocleaner and the Varrox, no experience with the Heilyser. The Varrocleaner and the Varrox both work fine, no complaints but the Varrox is really constructed well and I feel the...

  4. Re: Serious allergy scare during hive inspection

    If someone collapses "like a sack of potatoes", I would go with something stronger than Benadryl. Probably the EpiPen was a good choice, and so was calling the emergency personnel.

    Re: Robber screen Problems??? see pic

    That's a 213 by 159 pixel picture, hard to see anything. It looks like the sides are open on some W shaped screens. If so this will work, give them some time.

    Re: How far to take the bees after a split?

    I've done a few splits and moved the new hive about 12 inches away, worked great too. Read Mr. Bush' directions here: http://www.bushfarms.com/beessplits.htm

    I like the Betterbee one, you can get it with a nice plastic tray. You have to flip your solid bottom board over and use it, or purchase the rims that hold the tray up against the screen....

    I have a home made clear inner cover that helps me tell how crowded my hives are and with a flashlight I can look between the top frames to see how full the comb is. Bees don't seem to mind at all....
  17. Re: Next Question about painting plastic frames

    Paint it on with a brush or small roller, the more the better. If you have a nectar flow on a thin layer will work just fine. Do not go to wax foundation.

    Re: What is this?

    I think the light reddish areas are pollen filled cells, now I take back the drowned brood hypothesis. I'd try harvesting and see how the honey looks... So, I assume this is uncapped comb?
