We always have road construction; even when it is "winter" with temps in the 30-40 range. :D it was forecast to freeze, but didn't make it down to 35. I think there is a lot of buffering in the...
If it isn't feasible to move their comb, maybe you could extend the opening into a nuc with pvc; like a trapout without the cone. That would give space for feeding and expansion without ruining the...
Oh come on. It is only an 500+ mile/8 hour trip to the Paris store and you would get to pay sales tax also. :) By the way, you would drive past a Mann Lake reseller on the way.
Look for Gaffers tape. It holds really well, but doesn't leave much to clean up.
I certainly don't disagree with your definitions, but this means "follower boards" are used incorrectly all over the place. One example is http://outyard.weebly.com/follower-board.html and on KTBH...
Here is a question... If you have 2 or 3 hives and put identical robber screens on each, won't they all know how to access the other hives?
That sounds like a plan.
That comb looks really nice! You could do a cut-out and put it into a lang. :)
I built a KBTH, but am now making lang frames. It may be a long hive or it may be 8, 10 or 13, but it will be...
I have that all the time - without anyone keeping bees around me. I just thought it was dropped from the trees until I got interested in beekeeping.
GLOCK - if you want, I'll take that dirty car...
My queen had a nice 1 day old dot of paint on her back. :D When i did a post mortum the comb was covered with hive beetle larva, so maybe it wasn't me.
Good luck with the bees.
To expound on Santa Caras' idea: Try a long steel bar running down through the stack. Bent at the top and lock at the bottom. It would take a bit to remove when working the hive, but it would slow...
Maybe they are mine that decided to take off Sunday. :) That would be quite a flight!
Maybe setup a box with frames on top and let them move in. But see if they are actually living there and...
Those were my thoughts when I watched the videos. There is so much contradicting information in the ether. I'll continue to watch and learn.
It will add to their magnetic personality. :) Maybe we could steer them to the nectar we want.
Seriously, the doctors have me taking vitamins, iron, calcium, fish oil, ... They may be on to...
It is too big when they say "It is too big to fail......."
Howdy! I don't have any bees yet, but i've learned a lot on here. There are several people from TX active on here.
Thanks for the feedback. I got sidetracked from this thread researching the "standards" in frames and boxes. :)
I always get those sizes backwards...:sleep:
Assuming you have a cut-out in a structure and material must be removed. Is reconstruction and repair normally a part of the job? Or, is it left to the owner?
How do you set a price? Estimated...
So, to "side-track", how well would an entry in the middle of the stack work? Would they brood in the lower as "normal"?
Bifocals do the trick, but I've been stuck wearing glasses since grade school.
Howdy! It sounds like you have jumped in with both feet. I'm ready and waiting for a swarm to fly by - or a friend to split his hive. :)
Wow. It's a bad thing to lose a finger. :)
