    Of course, that's if Barry doesn't sell the site...
  3. Re: Small amount of light in top of traps

    I've started using polyester feed sacks. I place it between the top and the frames, and it functions as a makeshift inner cover. It also shields against rain if you have small cracks in the top and...

    Re: Swarm in my chimney

    Keep in mind that beeswax is a hydrocarbon. Hydrocarbons and fire don't exactly mix unless you like a good fireball :D.

    Yes, a cutout is the right way to do it because you want the comb removed as...

    Re: Snake Repellent

    Mr. Bush is correct about the mice. The flip side to that token is if you truly see snakes as a problem, then remove all of the rodents from the area as well as places for them (the snakes)to hide....

    Re: WHAT DEFINES FERAL BEES

    Re: General swarm trap questions

    A. How often do I check traps? I check mine usually once a week, sometimes every other week. It largely depends on the distance and schedule for me. I like checking on the ones close by during a...

    Not to mention the logistics that a comm operator would have to go through. Lol....can you imagine setting up 10 jars per colony for say, 1000 colonies?! That would be a nightmare! And, the robbing...

    Re: Grafting from started queen cells

    I'm sure you could,but why would you want to? Like you said, you could easily damage the larva. So, why not let them finish it and cut the cell out, and place it elsewhere once a cocoon has been...
