Nice! Thanks for this!
What did you find poor about it? Mine came labeled from "Cittadini". It's slightly lighter weight material compared to my old jacket but I'm fine with that as it's much much cooler. The material is...
I bought a "Apollo Half Suit" from them on Wednesday and had it Friday. Nice suit and great service. I usually call to verify the order when I place one online and the lady I spoke to was very polite...
Went ahead and ordered. Used it today and I'm very happy with it.
Decided it's time for a new jacket and the "Apollo Half Suit" caught my eye. Anyone have/use one? Pros? Cons?
My neighbor tells me about an old local beekeeper that's passed away that would sit under a swarm tapping a pocket knife against the top of the box. He's swears he could get them to go in the box...
She went from a beehaver to a beehavenot. Keep them. They're your bees now. People shouldn't expect to be coddled.
Looking for some new genetics so I'm bumping this. What's everyone have? Shipping?
Thanks. Funny thing about that one. I've found it on different pages to kill wax moths, hornets, yellow jacket, and hive beetles but I've only ever caught gnats in it. lol Ever have any luck with it?
Have a link to build one?
Put the box on the hive and let the bees worry about the rest.
Hi Anna. Nice to see another OC resident here. There's a few of us now.
She looks cordovan to me.
If I remember correctly there was a stink on here last year or the year before about Monsanto buying a big bee research lab/org and hiring some pretty well know bee scientists. So your statement...
I get the artificial banana flavoring smell also. Kinda like a banana liquor.
This is a good wiki with pollen color sources.
3 gallon of water weighs 24 pounds... So it'd be a little stronger than 1:1. If you take those 3 gallons of water then add 12 more cups of water it will give you 30 pounds of water for 30 pounds of...
I'd keep my eye on them. A hot swarm would have me worried. Never experienced that. If they act that way in the hive I'd requeen them.
Nice. I love seeing the squill and henbit pollen in the spring. The blue and red is always such a contrast.
Here's a little wiki page about pollen color/sources if you're insterested.
No idea. I tossed it out last year. It was the colored treatment/stain.
I used thompsons 2 years ago on a hive and it's been crap. It looked great the 1st year, crappy the 2nd year, and this year it'll have to be repainted at the end of the year. I'll stick to 2 coats of...
I haven't taken mine off ever. Just flipped from the large hole to the smaller one. Never noticed a problem. A hive with 60,000 bees isn't going to have all 60,000 out gathering nectar, pollen, and...
Did you check Brushy Mountain? They have a tank that holds 132 pounds of honey and includes a stainless steel screen for $170.00....
